It is that time of the month again when we put out our recommendations for some new and interesting apps. This is the month of Valentine’s day and we’ve added a few apps to help make your day memorable. Additionally, we’ve also listed apps to improve your productivity, help you sleep better, and more. If that got you curious, you’ll love this list of the best free Android apps for February 2023.
Hundreds of apps are uploaded to Play Store every week, but the ones that are featured are the ones that are already popular. Therefore, finding a few hidden gems is a task.
That’s exactly why we plan to write this list of the best free Android apps every month so that you stay updated with the latest apps for Android. Besides, all of these apps are free to use. Let us begin.
1. RemNote: All-in-One Note Taking App
If you are a fan of Notion, you will certainly love this app. This is because it offers quite a similar functionality, with a better user interface than the Notion mobile app.
RemNote is called an ‘all-in-one’ learning tool and has features for note taking, knowledgebase management, flashcards, and other learning tools to increase the efficiency of storing and maintaining information.
RemNote has quite an impressive tool to write notes and documents and has features that let you add images, links, tags, and source documents. It also emphasizes a feature called ‘Spaced Repetition’ which helps you build your long-term memory with a study plan designed by the app. Once you create the notes, you can easily generate flashcards for the same.
There is also a feature to add a linked reference, where you can provide links and references in between notes, reference notes to specific topics with contextual links, or even flashcards, which is impressive. You can also annotate PDFs, a nice touch.
However, the user interface was quite laggy at the beginning but it felt optimized as we used it. It also needs a mandatory sign-in before you use the app, and as a note-taking app, we felt that this could be an optional feature. The app is fully free to use, and no feature is behind a paywall.
2. Memix: Turn Your Texts Into Memes
Ever seen a video meme that you so badly want to send to your friends, but you also wish the text on it could be quickly changed? This isn’t a daunting task anymore. Memix helps you do that and is one of the more interesting free Android apps we have come across.
All you need to do is enter the text, and the video meme will now feature your custom text. You can also easily share it with all of your messaging apps, and hence, achieve the tag of a meme king in your WhatsApp group.
There are tons of templates to choose from, and finding them is easy, given the number of tags they are categorized under. The user interface is simple too. However, we wished it was optimized further to reduce the lag.
The good news, though, is that this app is free from ads, and is completely free to download. No feature of this app is behind a paywall. This definitely takes the text messaging game to a whole new level, and rightfully deserves a spot on the best free Android apps list for February 2023.
3. Codora: A Powerful QR Code Scanner
QR Codes are omnipresent in our daily lives. And wouldn’t it be great if it had a standalone app with a few added features? Codora does exactly that. It has a few useful tools, packed in an easy-to-use interface. This app was another interesting find for us and deserved a spot on the best free Android apps for February.
It has a feature to scan and also generate QR codes. The scanner has multiple modes of scanning. For one, we like the ‘Decoder’ feature that lets you extract the plain text from barcodes. There is also a feature that lets you quickly scan codes one after the other, and the results can be checked in the history.
The app also helps you generate QR codes of nearly every single format available. And if you are someone who has to generate QR codes as a part of your day, this app will certainly help you out.
The app has ads, but they aren’t intrusive so that’s a plus. You can purchase the pro version to get rid of them. Besides, the pro version also comes with dark mode and fast scan mode and lets you store unlimited barcodes.
Price: Free; Pro Version: $3.79 onwards
4. SnoreGym: Say Goodbye To Snoring
SnoreGym app helps you with exercises to reduce snoring, as its creative name suggests. If people find your snores disturbing throughout the night, this is an app that you must check out.
According to the app, the main cause of snoring is weak muscles in the mouth area. Hence, the app suggests exercises to tone your upper airway muscles which in turn reduces snoring.
This app has exercises with easy-to-follow animations so that you have a clear understanding of what you need to do. Additionally, you also get detailed text-based instructions.
The app also claims that the workouts are evidence-based and scientists have tested these exercises along with research that shows they can reduce snoring and the severity of sleep apnea. Thus, improving the overall quality of sleep.
SnorGym also helps you track your progress and sync your data so that you do not lose your progress. However, these features are only available on the premium version of the app. Along with these, you also get three additional workout modes.
However, there are a few animations that do not match up with the timing and the reminders don’t seem to work at times. But overall, we were happy with what the app offers and hence, made it to our list of best free Android apps.
Price: Free; Paid Version: $9.99 onwards
5. LyriTunes: Get AI-Generated Lyrics
With the release of Dall-E 2 and ChatGPT for the public, it was evident AI is here to take over. Many apps that use OpenAI’s open-source code have been developed to serve a bunch of purposes. LyriTunes is one such app that is used to generate lyrics using Artificial Intelligence.
So, you know what to gift your better half this Valentine’s! 😉
Like all other AI products, LyriTunes also involves the user adding the text prompt to generate the output. So, once you provide a few phrases and keywords, LyriTunes will write original lyrics relevant to your prompt.
The app also allows you to add a soundtrack to the generated lyrics to create a complete song. Gives you a bunch of options to choose from so that you can select the right track for your lyrics.
The app also has a premium version that gets rid of all the ads. However, these ads aren’t intrusive and do not disturb your user experience. We feel the user interface could be a bit better and the singer’s vocals do need improvement since it lags heavily.
However, all AI products are in their nascence. So, we can certainly hope it gets better over time with updates. Nonetheless, it still does a good job to help you make that special someone feel special. So, go ahead and get started.
Price: Free; Paid Version: $2.99 onwards
6. Invoice Maker – Smart Invoice: Generate Invoices With Ease
If you are a freelancer or self-employed, this app will definitely help you out. You probably need to hand out a lot of monthly invoices and creating them might be quite time-consuming if you haven’t figured out a way to use a tool for the same.
Invoice maker is an app that helps you easily generate invoices and effectively manage all your bills.
This app provides tools to create bills, estimates, and receipts. You can add detailed information regarding customers, items, taxes, and discounts. It also allows you to add and organize customer information into multiple lists to easily retrieve them. You can also add a custom status for your invoice i.e. paid, pending, or unpaid.
The app is free to use but if you want unlimited invoices and estimates or unlimited clients and items, you have to purchase the pro version. The pro version also gives you the option to track invoices and sign these documents too.
Price: Free; Pro Version: $2.99 onwards
7. GIFTLY: Get Cool Gift Ideas
We mentioned earlier about us keeping a little focus on Valentine’s day and giving you an app recommendation for the same. Well, this is it! GIFTLY helps find gift ideas for your special one to make the day memorable.
Hence, if you are running out of gift ideas, you can definitely check this app out.
To get started, you need to add a few basic details of the person you are planning to gift – like the name, relationship, and age group, and select their interests like arts and crafts, cars, music, food, etc. Once you select Valentine’s Day as the event, you get a bunch of suggestions to explore.
After you select a gift, you will be redirected to the Amazon website, to quickly make your purchase. While we really appreciate the idea behind this app, we feel the user interface can be updated so that it feels less sluggish and laggy to use.
Besides, the app does not require a login which is definitely a plus. It is also fully free to use with no feature behind a paywall.

1. Reading Mode by Google: Listen to the Written Content
Companies like Google, Apple, and other big names have always taken up the responsibility to make technology accessible to all, and have developed apps and services to help the differently abled. One such app that Google recently released is called Reading Mode and it features on this list of best free apps for Android. So, read more to know why.

2. ChatGPT Smart AI Chatbot: An AI Chatbot for Your Phone
The capabilities of AI always seem to surprise all of us, but when OpenAI introduced ChatGPT, we were beyond surprised, shocked, and amazed at how far technology has come. ChatGPT helps you with any question you throw at it, irrespective of the nature of the query and we often found the answers too good to be true.
Not only that but you can also have conversations with it and it will provide you with human-like responses. And if you want to try this technology on your phone, ChatGPT Smart AI Chatbot is an app that you can try.
The AI can also familiarize itself with all of your interests and provide you with more personalized responses and answers. The app also lets you customize the characteristics of the AI, and you can adjust values for randomness and response size.
However, the app has a lot of ads, and sometimes it gets quite annoying. It also only has limited tokens that you can use to generate responses, and you need to watch ads to increase the number of tokens.
Overall, we feel that this app does a good job as a smart AI chatbot. But if you want to test the full potential of an AI chatbot, you can check out the official website of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. However, this app does give you a brief idea of how an AI chatbot works, and we’re sure you can have some fun with it as well!

Journaling is deemed to be a good practice to improve mindfulness on a daily basis according to multiple scientific studies conducted worldwide. Since then, a plethora of apps and services have been developed to help us journal on our smartphones, and one such app is Daily Diary.
Daily Diary has a colorful user interface and lets you journal and track your mood daily. It lets you add pictures to your journals so that you can record your memories in detail. And of course, all of these journals are private, hence the app provides an option to securely lock the same.
You can also save your memories using the calendar, and also add reminders to make sure you don’t skip a single day of journaling. You also unlock new themes after completing certain goals and track your mood using a graph to understand your well-being. The app also does not require any signing up to start with, and that’s something we wish other apps to follow suit.
However, the app comes with ads, but they are minimal and do not interfere with your usage. You can disable them too by purchasing the pro version.

The wallpapers are well-designed and quite minimal indeed. So, you don’t have to see overwhelming elements on your home screen. However, not all wallpapers are free and some of them can only be unlocked in the pro version. It also has a few ads, which can be disabled in the pro version. A few downsides we noticed in this app are that the sign-in process took some time and some users also complained about issues while purchasing the pro version.

In today’s world, we have more than one option to stay connected with our loved ones, and every day we see unique apps and services that let us do so. Noteit is a wholesome app that adds another way to keep in touch. We’ll show you more about what it is.
Noteit lets you add a widget on your home screen, which showcases live notes from a loved one. All you need to do is to add the widget, send a link to your friend, and then you can send a note right to their home screen.
We liked the concept behind this app, and if you want to take a break from all the noisy social media apps and yet stay connected, we highly recommend this app. The app also does not come with any advertisements and is completely free to use.
6. Milki – Pomodoro Study Timer: Android App to Improve Your Focus
The Pomodoro technique is a time management technique developed in the 1980s, which is used to break work into periods of 25 minutes before one can take a break. This technique is deemed successful as it not only helped people complete tasks, but also not feel overburdened or stressed during the process.

It starts with a detailed sign-up process to tailor the app’s features to meet your goal. It has a range of workouts for both home and gym and lets you create and customize your workout routines.
