    If you have a Samsung GS4, weather station apps like these are pretty nice:

    The card keyring app is an interesting idea. And not to diminish the value of the other apps showcased, but most things in them are things you could just google; the shopping card membership idea is one of the few I'd actually call a user utility app.

    Great article. Thanks for suggesting best utility apps. I would add one more great app i.e. Protectr Lite. A very handy and free parental control app to monitor kids.
