10 useful Google apps you probably aren’t using




Google’s got a lot of apps. Maybe even too many, in certain (ahem) cases.

Amidst all the obvious titles and oddly overlapping offerings, though, Google’s wing of the Play Store holds some genuinely useful treasures — clever creations by the creator of Android that are just waiting to be discovered.

Here are 10 off-the-beaten-path Google apps that’ll help you do all sorts of interesting stuff with your Android device. Sure, any one of ’em could disappear any day with little to no warning — this is Google we’re talking about, after all — but for the moment, at least, they’re out there and ready for the taking. And yes, they’re all free.

(Some, but not all, are also available for iOS.)

Need to get a quick measurement of a physical object in your home or office and don’t have your trusty tape measure handy? (What you were thinking, heading to work without a measuring apparatus in your pocket?!) Well, fret no more: Google’s Measure app is up to the task.

Just fire up Measure, aim your phone’s camera at any object around you — a box you need to ship, a ship you need to box, or anything in between — and within a matter of seconds, the app will help you drag a virtual tool onto the image and get a real-world measurement of any of its sides.
