    Hey guys,
    I thought id start a thread for getting the best apps on your device! So, What Apps would you recommend to download on the nexus 5x?


    I'll add to the list as well. These are the main Apps I install on all of my devices. The $50 store credit is awesome for upgrading Apps!! The free versions of each app (that's paid) is fine as well.

    Nova Launcher Prime
    Smoke and Glass icon pack
    Battery percent enabler
    Microsoft office Apps
    Twilight Pro
    Weather Live
    AVG antivirus Pro
    BBC News
    Footy Light
    Runtastic Pro
    MyNetDiary (calorie counter) Pro
    Basis Peak (if you have the fitness band)

    My can't live withouts:

    --Nova Launcher (buy the Prime version to get the gestures and extra features)
    --Pocket Casts
    --Amazon Kindle
    --MLB At Bat
    --Falcon Pro 3 (Twitter client--free to try in demo but costs $3.99 to add your account--good use of your Play credit)
    --Runtastic Pro
    --Inbox for Gmail (I was an early convert and now I can't deal with the cluttered Gmail interface)

    I don't really like weather apps anymore--mostly because Google Now does a perfectly serviceable job and I use my local TV station's weather app to get radar/alerts--but if I do use one, it's Weather Timeline. Great design, no battery drain, and only $0.99.

    Netflix (mainly for casting)
    TuneIn Radio Pro
    Fantasy Premier League
    Stick Cricket 2
    Footmob Pro
    Sky Sports News
    Banking apps
    O2 mobile app

    I currently don't have much on my N5x and need to go through my apps to see what I'm missing.

    I tend to leave more media stuff (like movie watching) to my tablet such as:

    Sky Go
    Netflix (for watching on the tab, not casting)
    VLC player
    BBC iPlayer, 4OD, ITV Player, TV Catch up etc
    Flixster (for Ultraviolet)
    Larger games
    Nova Prime (to reduce Touchwiz)

    As a note, I always try to get paid apps if I can in order to avoid adds. I try to avoid freemium apps unless it's one payment to remove ads. I'd be interested to know other people's thoughts on this?

    Forgot about LightFlow although not updated for 6.0 last I checked.
    A must have for Nexus owners which will make better use of the RGB notification light.

    Edit: seems there is a problem with light control and ambient display - hope this gets resolved

    Manual Camera and Camera L have been recommended elsewhere on the forums, but I haven't used them.

    Does anyone find it odd that Redbox doesn't support the 5x?

    Solid Explorer for a really really.....solid.... file explorer with great cloud/network integration.
    MacroDroid for an easier to learn and almost but not quite as powerful automation app - alternative to Tasker.
    Smart Launcher Pro 3 - simply a great launcher particularly for the minimalist who likes gesture launched navigation.
    WallPaper Changer - This is a brilliantly simply wallpaper rotation app with good integration with my automation app.
    Snap (+ Car Widget) - basically allows me to access a bespoke driving launcher home screen with a gesture.
    Aida64 - I like geeky numbers.
    FolderSync - Really good cloud sync app - again integrates nicely with my automation app.
    Team Viewer so I can mess with my other half by taking over the home laptop from work.....
    Weather Timeline - best weather app by a square mile
    SoundCloud - great place for fresh tunerage.
    Plex - I just love Plex - use it mainly for casting to the big screen but it's nice to have access at will when I'm out and about to my own cloud video library
    DSub - Same for music - I've got about 50GBs of my own music which sits on a SubSonic Server. DSub is the client.
