This is another of the best free android apps 2020 that repeat with respect to our list from last year, but that for a long time that passes is still an absolute must for those who are going to visit a great city that is not theirs. The app can be configured to choose one of the capitals or large cities that are available, and when you do, you can move around the city as if you were a local, knowing all the combinations of public transport available. It works with your mobile, but also with Android Wear watches.
You just have to tell where you are, and taking into account your geolocation, Citymapper will plot various routes from which you can choose. The routes will combine different public transports, so you can take a combination of buses, buses or subways, or simply subways. And in all this, you are guided step by step, with details such as telling you how many steps you have left to reach the platform where you must get off to continue your journey and take the next link.
A little later in this list, you will find Netflix since despite not being new it is still one of the best streaming applications available.

Firefox Focus is not only a great browser for all those who want to preserve their online privacy by blocking ads and trackers on web pages, but it is one of the best browsers in general that you can download for your mobile phone, either to use it as the main or only for those specific consultations in which you do not want to be tracked.
The browser has been created by the same company behind Firefox, one of the ones that best takes care of your privacy. But with him, they wanted to go a little further by focusing exclusively on it. It has some positive aspects, such as not being able to manage several tabs well, but if this does not matter to you, it is still one of the most to consider.
Installing a third-party keyboard not only helps you gain extra functions on your mobile but also allows you to customize it a little more. And in the field of keyboards for Android, Gboard is undoubtedly one of the great references, very popular for having menus in which it integrates many of Google’s services.
Without going any further, on this keyboard you can use the Google translator as if it were an extension. You also have an emoji search engine, the possibility of creating personalized stickers with your face to use in any application or write in two languages at the same time. Maybe, if you are one of those people who are very concerned about privacy, you may not like that Google can know what you write, but in return, you have a very versatile keyboard.
Google Keep has long been one of the best note-taking apps on Android, another tool created by Google itself to compete with third-party apps, and that you can use both from your mobile and from the web, which helps a lot to be able to take or consult notes wherever you are. It allows you to create reminders by place, you can share notes and even create collaborative notes to, for example, make the shopping list as a family.
There are also different formats, such as conventional text notes or a checklist whose content you can mark as done. You can give the notes different colors as if they were post it to organize yourself to your liking. In short, another one of those almost essential applications that possibly continues to be on the best apps lists for quite some time.
Google Photos is another one of those best free android apps 2020 that, for a long time, remain practically essential for any Android user. You can use it in two ways, free to have unlimited space in exchange for the photos being compressed, or buying space on Google One to upload them in original quality.
But beyond the limits of space, the great asset of Google Photos is in its interface, both in the mobile and in the browser. It has a search engine to find the photos you want by different terms or dates, typing the name of a city or country to find the photos you took there or even terms such as concert or flower to search for the photos that Google interprets as such. You also have automatic creation of improved photos or videos, the ability to group photos by faces to see only those of certain people, or to create your own albums in which you can even put maps when they are on a trip.
