✏ Recommended Playstore Apps to analyse problems or which are useful

Hi,

It would be useful if there would be a list or wiki of RECOMMENDED APPS to analyse and improve your phone. I suggest these categories and additional infos:

compatibility FP1 / FP2:

  • :white_check_mark: = running and no negative impacts found
  • :negative_squared_cross_mark: = not running (e.g. FP2 root necessary)
  • :question: = do not know / have not tested yet
  • :warning: = problems / malware / other issues
  • (Username) who tested this app and rates it

Some of these apps were mentioned in the forum:
