    Photo Management - I use the stock gallery and backup to Google+

    Keyboard - Swifykey/Swiftkey Beta (The beta has a dedicated number row)

    Messaging - I have been using Evolve SMS for texting lately. I also like using Textra and Hangouts.

    I'm having a problem finding an email app that I like. I have a Yahoo account and the Yahoo app is fast but boring and I hate the recent update. The stock app wasn't sending images correctly so some of my contacts weren't able to open them but I like that it had a badge notification.

    This * changes if it was a nexus because I can't stand the default apps.

    I love SwiftKey and Textra.

    Others? I love tunein during NFL seasons because up here we don't get ESPN shows like Colin Cowherd.

    Go into Nova settings and check in Tesla counter and open Gmail settings and choose which mail folders to show on counter. Had the same problem with mine and now it works
