    Over the months of trying out different apps for my KEYone (because the KEYone doesn't come with many of the standard apps that most phones come with like an office suite, sound recorder, file manager, etc), I've found several awesome apps so far. Let me know if you have any additions and have tested them on the KEYone. Preferably free with no ads, or if it's an exceptionally great app, maybe low priced cheap apps in that case.

    Local Music Player
    (1) Pulsar Music Player
    ad-free (i wanted a player that could just play songs in a particular folder unlike Google Play Music which places every single audio file on your phone in your songlist--quite annoying)

    Sound Recorder
    (1) Audio Recorder by Sony - ad-free

    File Manager
    (1) ASUS File Manager
    ad-free, cloud support, great UI
    (2) Sandisk Memory Zone
    ad-free, cloud support, media centric UI
    (3) MiXplorer
    I have no experience with this one, ask user thurask about it!

    Notes
    (1) Google Keep
    multi-platform sync and FAST!
    (2) Microsoft OneNote
    multi-platform sync but much slower load speed than Google Keep

    Office Suite App
    (1) Naver Office (korean)
    ad-free (I wanted an ad-free and small "all-in-one," instead of 4 separate apps that are rather large like the Microsoft and Google variants)
    (2) Google/Microsoft Office suite apps
    (3) Xodo PDF Reader & Editor (only PDF)
    ad-free & suggested by Heavens1

    Blue Light Filter
    (1) Night Mode by EyeCare Lab
    Ad-free with a lot of options to adjust the screen how you like it.
    (2) Night Screen by Paper Airplane Dev Team
    Ad-free and even integrates with your quick settings drop down menu. But the app is too simple and doesn't have enough customizability, like you can't turn on blue light filter AND dim the screen at the same time.

    SMS
    (1) Textra SMS
    Awesome customization options and great integration with BB Hub. Ads after trial, $3 to get rid of ads.
    (2) Yaata SMS
    A lot of folks on this forum swear by this app too. (i think it's $3 to get more customization features. Can somebody double confirm please? thanks!)
    (3) Signal Private Messenger
    SMS AND secure end-to-end encryption between other Signal users. Ad-free but it does bug you with a prompt to invite others not using the app to download it too... the UI is also not as customizable as the above apps

    Calendar
    (1) Google Calendar (until BB Calendar gets text in month view)

    Call Recorder App
    (1) Call Recorder by Boldbeast
    ad-free and suggested by Heavens1


    APKMirror Apps
    (1) Google Phone 7.0 nonnexus version
    Much better than the stock phone app w/more features (swipe up to answer)
    (2) Polaris Office 5 for HTC
    fully functional but you get a dark window over your docs saying it's not made for your phone...
    (3) FB Messenger LITE
    24mb total as opposed to the regular version that's over 200mb+
    (4) ASUS Calculator
    is way better than the calculator app that comes with the phone. Includes Currency AND Unit Conversions!!!

    Is this limited to Korean language?

    (1) Naver Office (korean)
    ad-free (I wanted an ad-free and small "all-in-one," instead of 4 separate apps that are rather large like the Microsoft and Google variants)

    Boldbeast Call recorder is excellent for recording phones calls, and does not require the phone to be on loudspeaker.

    It's free with no ads, and all the regular features are enabled, or you can pay for it if you are satisfied with it. (Aud12.99) (there is no time limit to how long you can use the free version)

    The memo feature is also an excellent recorder.

    Equate is an excellent free and ad free conversion app. However there is a discrete mention of contribution to the dev with update info.

    SD Insight is free, and ad free. It reveals your SD card manufacturer details, which lo and behold, may be different from what was on the packaging of your card.

    Note, apparently there may be some nougat compatibility issues, although the KEYone may not have the issue.

    Compass is a great free, and add free, app that does not require GPS to be turned on to work. (The dev has recently added a paid version, accessed in-app, cost aud4.89, that provides extra features)

    Hey Heavens1, have you tested all of your app suggestions to work on the KEYone? Some call recorders don't work on some handsets. I think I tried boldbeast on my old Galaxy S5 and it didn't work.

    Boldbeast was successfully used by a KEYone user in another thread you and I are subscribed to (which I'm trying to find, lol).

    Unfortunately the poster didn't reply to which setting they used. (The priv is the first setting)

    the phone 7.0 nonnexus version is the only legit unmodified phone app made officially by Google that can work on non-google phones. Unless they released another official one!

    I'm trying PhoneProfilesPlus. So far I like it. There is some lag when events change profiles. It may be due to the scanning adjustments. It is very configurable.

    I see it listed in the Play Store as well, it shows 'in app purchases' but I have not yet encountered a purchase request and all functions are open (which can be opened on a non-rooted device BBB100-3). I only installed it last night.

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    Hello,

    'in app purchases' is for donation. You can donate using other way too.
    Using adb you can unblock some functions (by giving some permissions ... see explication in help)
    I had some lag sometimes but I removed it from the Battery optimization.

    Personaly I use it every day. Many options are available. You can change phone profile using calendar events or sms .....

    Another Application that I recommend is Geometric Weather.
