The Android app industry is evolving so fast that the scope of trendy applications is changing faster than ever.

This inevitably leaves fewer opportunities for developers to join the race for user attention – what might have come out as a handy app yesterday, may not be that useful for customers next month, let alone next year.

However, when it comes to Android utilities, the future looks a little less discouraging, at least in a short-term perspective. In fact, some apps in this niche are demonstrating persistent growth, in terms of their user acquisition and retention.

Here’re the 3 Android utility apps that will probably survive Until 2020:

  • Notetaking app

Whilst Google Drive has obviously covered the document/spreadsheet editing and management segment on Android devices by now, taking notes in a separate app is still relatively more common among users.

Quite naturally, a potential best choice among notetaking apps must meet the following core requirements:

  • Light app weight
  • Low CPU|RAM usage
  • Clean app design
  • Intuitive UX/UI & navigation
  • Instant note export|sharing

Personal choice: ColorNote Notepad Notes (avg. Google Play rating: 4.6 out of 5).

  • Ringtone cutter

Since even the most high-end Android phones rarely offer a good ringtone selection by default, cutting a ringtone oneself remains one of the most obvious alternatives for users by now.

Clearly, a potential winner or at least a runner up in this sub-category must cover the following:

  • Light app weight
  • Low CPU|RAM usage
  • Intuitive UX/UI & navigation
  • Instant ringtone preview
  • One-tap saving/assignment to contacts

Personal choice: Ringtone Maker Wiz (avg. Google Play rating: 4.6 out of 5).

  • Ebook reader

The gradual increase of an average Android phone screen over the past few years led to one drastic change in users’ preferences: a separate device for reading books has now become somewhat an old-school habit.

Obviously, a high-quality app for reading documents and ebooks directly on one’s smartphone must cover a wide range of design/functionality requirements. Among those:

  • Light app weight
  • Low CPU|RAM usage
  • Intuitive UX/UI & navigation
  • Auto-detection of ebooks on device
  • Support of all ebook/document formats (including PDF, MS Office)
  • Customizable reading modes
  • In-text search

Personal choice: 4Book Reader – PDF, EPUB, DOC (avg. Google Play rating: 4.5 out of 5).
