It’s expected that the mobile app industry will generate about $77 billion by the end of this year.

As such, there has never been a better time to be a mastermind of Android app ideas.
App inventors are truly creating some of the most life-changing apps right now!
But with millions of Android apps on the market, where do app inventors draw their inspiration from?
For starters, let’s discuss the top 5 Android apps that not only changed the industry, but the way we live our lives forever.
Need to get somewhere? Android users can request a destination on the Uber app and get picked up by a private driver — at a reasonable price!
Now, nobody ever needs to be stranded, drivers like can earn extra income, and Uber is raking in billions ever year as a result.
And some folks aren’t happy about it.
Uber is banned in several countries, out of fear the app will put taxi companies out of business for good.
Despite the legitimate threat it poses to the taxi industry, the Uber app is changing the way we get around for the better.
Back in the early 2000’s, GPS systems were on everybody’s Christmas and birthday wish lists.
Who didn’t want a device that made navigating easier?
Yet, the once sought-after GPS device has become a thing of the past.
With the Waze app, mobile users can easily access GPS right on their Android device…and a lot more!
Like Google Maps, Waze enhances traditional GPS by providing traffic information and travel times to users.
But Waze also allows users to report accidents, police sightings, road updates, and much more.
Navigating has never been quicker or easier.
SMS is so 10 years ago. WhatsApp Messenger is the leading freeware text messaging app that all the kids and adults are using.
Here at BrainyApps, WhatsApp is one of the primarily tools used for internal communication among our team.
WhatsApp lets users text message and call each other at no charge when connected to the internet.
Fears of racking up phone bills and going over text limits are no longer an issue.
With WhatsApp, people can call and text message internationally, and with secure end-to-end encryption.
Did we mention it’s free?
Photo sharing and social media all in one? We’re talking Instagram, and it’s the hottest social media app in the game.
Instagram is more than a photo editing and sharing app.
It’s fun to use and it’s easy to get in touch with people from all over the world who share similar interests.

Of all the online dating websites and apps out there, how did Tinder come out on top?
Tinder simplified the online dating process by focusing on physical attraction and proximity.
Profiles are matched based on location. Users swipe on the profiles of people they’re attracted to, and they swipe past those they aren’t.
Algorithms are really behind the magic of Tinder, but this app has truly changed the way people meet.
It’s simpler than other dating websites, and it’s united millions of couples worldwide.
Honorable Mentions: Airbnb & Duolingo
We had difficulty limiting our list to the just the five best Android app ideas, so here’s two honorable mentions.
Our first honorable mention goes out to Airbnb for changing the way people lodge on vacation.
The app works by connecting travelers with hosts in various cities around the world.
People can bond with their hosts and have all the amenities of a home while on vacation.
Just as Uber creates income opportunities for anyone who wants to drive their own cars, anyone with a spare room to rent can turn it into easy cash.
Not to mention, Airbnb is usually much cheaper than hotels (and rooms are more interesting too).
Our second honorable mention goes out to an app that is transforming the way we learn languages.
Duolingo is an app that makes learning a language like a game.
It’s becoming the fastest way to learn a language, and it’s free!
