The LG G2 is quickly growing in popularity as more people realize the incredible features and functionalities, offered at a reasonable price point. Also, thanks to T-Mobile, people can purchase the new LG G2 smartphone with no binding contract and unlimited 4G LTE data, so it’s easy to use apps anytime, anywhere without paying an arm and a leg.
If you’ve recently picked up an LG G2, you’re probably looking for some free apps to add for a more robust experience. Here are some ideas:
If you can’t go a day without browsing the top headlines, the Google Play Newsstand app is for you. Choose from 1,900 free and paid publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Wired and more. Read through full-length articles, enjoy audio and video features or bookmark an article to read at a later time. This app also allows you to go offline for news and magazines.
Any adult who runs a household could use a little help with the bills. The Bills Reminder app keeps track of all of your bills and alerts you in advance when a bill is due. You don’t even have to open the app — it will still fire off an alert. It also offers functionality to attach photos of your bills, invoices and receipts for future reference. Never miss a payment again!
If you’ve recently celebrated a milestone or taken a vacation and filled up your camera, phone or Instagram feed with photos, turn them into a short video story using Flipagram. Set your own timing and speed and draw up a colorful title for your project. You can even add a custom soundtrack to the video and share it via YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and other platforms.
Taking a trip to London, New York City, Paris or Berlin? A city map is your best friend. Navigate the streets with Citymapper, an urban transport/transit app designed for these complicated cities.

Rovio is back with another version of the insanely popular angry avian game. Think of it as Angry Birds meets Mario Kart — now the birds are behind the wheel of a car or pig while riding on a racetrack. Angry Birds Go offers special powers, different game modes and the ability to see the birds and pigs from every angle.
Twoo is the latest dating app to hit the Google Play Store and has more than 10 million monthly active visitors.

Get to your meetings and events quickly with the Google Maps integration.
One of the best things to do on an LG G2 is take photos. The VSCO Cam app helps you edit your photos by adjusting elements like contrast, rotation and color temperature. When you’re happy with the finished product, share the pictures via your social network.
