Tired of the Gapps? So see the best alternatives to Google apps
We know that Google apps for Android are among the best services on the platform: Gmail, Google Maps, Hangouts, Chrome, and Company are well designed and have many useful features. Even so, they do not please everyone. If you're looking for the best alternatives to Google apps, check out our list below.
Here we will choose the best third party services that you can download as replacements for Gapps. Even if after trying them you want to go back to Google's own apps, at least you know what the competition has to offer.
Mailbox instead of Gmail
If you can't adapt to Gmail and the recent Inbox, then Mailbox is worth a try. This service organizes your messages well, which you can easily and quickly access. It includes many functions like swipe to file and snooze, which has since been copied by other applications (including Inbox by Gmail).
In addition, Mailbox can learn from your behavior by gradually recording the types of messages you spend the most time reading and which emails you quickly discard. Mailbox, however, does not yet have a version of the web interface (just a Beta service for Mac if you want to use it on the desktop).
HERE Maps instead of Google Maps
Google Maps is a very useful application, with important functions being integrated at short intervals by Mountain View developers. With Nokia's HERE Maps, however, it received a tall competitor. HERE was created by Nokia's team of programmers after the company was bought by Microsoft.
What does this map service offer? For starters, excellent offline support around the world, a more efficient service for splitting your saved locations into categories, and a layout that makes it easy to use. It also has an integrated option to share your current location with a selected group of people. In short, a very efficient service!
Dropbox instead of Google Drive
Google Drive is a multifaceted application that has many different functions, but if you use it to sync files between devices and computers, then Dropbox is a great alternative. Dropbox is also capable of backing up all your photos and videos to the cloud, making it an alternative to Google Photos.
