It utilizes the data you've given it to make context and location-centric alerts.
  • 13. Facebook: Facebook for Android is simply one of the best apps out there, and for many people it's a necessity. You can get the Facebook app here in Google Play.

Currently, Facebook Home is exclusive to select devices including the HTC One, HTC First and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, among others. 
  • 14. Twitter: Like Facebook, Twitter is also a necessity for any social networking-junkie. The micro-blogging site is your one stop shop for keeping up with breaking news, conversing with friends (and meeting new ones). Twitter even recently added a music component to its network, so now you can track what your friends are listening and easily discover new songs, albums and artists. Twitter can be found here.
  • 15. Instagram: This list wouldn't be complete without the motherload of photo-sharing apps: Instagram. Acquired by Facebook in 2012, Instagram lets you snap photos, edit them with a list of funky filters and then share them with your followers. You'll also notice Facebook and Twitter integration, so you can share your shots with a larger audience. To download the Instagram app on your One, head to Google Play, tap the search icon, and type Instagram. Tap on the app once it pops up and then you can install it.
