Hey guys welcome to TechoBook here we have a list of some of the best android apps for your smartphone. Let’s not waste time and jump right on it.
The first app on our list is the REC. Rec is a screen recording app that allows you to record the screen of your phone. You have to be rooted in order to use this app, you can easily record what you do on your phone. But on the free version you are limited to 5 minutes of video without the audio and 30 sec of video with the audio. This app comes very handy if you want to record something quickly like video calls, audio calls, or YouTube videos for later access.
Simply launch the app select the bitrate of the video, select the duration of the video, select if you want your video to be played with the audio and a given file name. Simply tap on the record button after that and start recording. Once done the recorded files are saved on your rec folder.

2: The Cleaner
The next one is the cleaner. The cleaner is the simple app that cleans your memory and storage of your android phones. As we all know when we use different apps on our phone a lot of unwanted files takes up the storage memory of our phone. We even have a lot of unwanted apps running on the background. With this app you can clean the memory and clear the junk files on your storage with an ease.
With a very simple UI you have to choose between the clearing the memory and the storage. Tap on the circle where to analyse and tap clean. You can go to settings to choose where to scan your phone and choose between different themes. Let’s apply one of them and see. The only thing lacking on this app is a widget.

To view all the songs details tap on the music icon, and browse through all the music folders, playlist and customize the view.
Another cool feature of this app is that you also can add the equalizers. Which is very cool in our opinion. As most of the stock music app don’t have equalisers with them. You can also download the album arts that are missing and you also can set a sleep timer on this music player. On settings, you have extra options for playback, headsets, your library, album arts, lock screen and appearance. So the lock screen option here is you will get a widget on your lock screen.
