A smartphone without applications is similar to a bike without petrol. The applications or "apps" drives the smartphone. These days, smartphones come with various preloaded apps. Some of them are pretty useful while some aren't. It is very important to keep a handful of apps that you need in your day-to-day life.

  • Gravity Screen - The concept of Gravity Screen has been taken from Motorola Moto X Gen 1 and Gen 2. This smartphone has a feature - wave to wake up. There are different sensors installed in Moto X that detects motion and allows the screen to wake up. Gravity Screen is based on the same principle. The app can detect when you put your phone in your pocket, lay it face down, or even when you move it while reading. If it detects it's in a state where the screen doesn't need to be on, it turns it off. If it thinks you want to use it, the display comes right back on. You can even customize the sensitivity of the various sensors. This application is very useful if you have issues with the power button of your smartphone.
