While there is a plethora of apps in Google Play and the Amazon App Store, there are some you can’t gain access to unless a device is rooted. A good one to take into consideration is Screencast, which will enable you to record your phone screen. This can be great for providing tutorials or even writing reviews on (lets say) an app. MarketEnabler helps you obtain the app you MUST have, as it deceives the Play store into thinking your device might be compatible with apps that aren’t originally supported on it.
One of the most depressing things about getting a new Android device is seeing the apps tray stuffed with tons of bloatware. Some of the newer versions of Jelly Bean allow you to disable them or hide it, but it still takes up a substantial amount of space. Apps like Titanium Backup and several others will rid the device clean of it.
