There are literally tons of android apps available on the market. However, there are only a few that can be considered to be among the best apps available for purchase or download. The most successful apps include creative apps that allow people to do something different with their smart phones, often making the phone something much more than a mere phone. Below are the top apps of January 2014. You may be surprised at how creative the app developers have gotten with some of these particular apps. One thing is for certain, you will be able to do much more with your android smart phone by using these apps than you were before.

1. ERGO

This is one of the most unique apps to come along in quite a while. If you have ever been frustrated with trying to remember passwords and codes to unlock your smart phone, this may be the app for you. Essentially, it is a biometric app that allows you to unlock your smart phone simply by pressing it to your ear. The ear is essentially like fingerprints. Everyone has an ear that is completely unique, unlike anyone else’s. Therefore, once you have downloaded the app and set it up, you can essentially unlock your smart phone simply by putting it to your ear. This eliminates the need to remember pass codes and get through one locked screen after another. In addition, it allows you and you alone to have access to your cell phone. This prevents the possibility that someone else could gain access to your passwords and thus gain access to the sensitive information that is likely stored on your cell phone. With the unique geometry of your ear, this app definitely creates a robust and reliable mobile device security solution that is easy to use, non-invasive and non-distracting.
