Best Lightweight Android AppsThese days Android Apps are becoming more and more big in size. Heavy apps steal most of your device’s storage, and you will not be able to store more media files then. If you have a device with no expandable storage support, the scene becomes even worse. You know what? There are lightweight versions (not always from the same developer, though) of almost all the applications you use every day. Unfortunately, the statement is not true for graphic intense games. Anyhow, Here in this post I have collected seven lightweight apps to save your storage and do the tasks you love.

You might have used many music player apps in the past. I am certain that all of them weigh more than 20 MB in size.

Yeah, Pixel Music Player doesn’t steal one big chunk of your phone’s storage. It has all the specs of a modern music player app like equalizer, bass boost, tag editor, online support, widget, lock screen controls, and customization. The best thing is you won’t see ads.

2. Zero Browser


If you use Google Chrome, you know it robs a lot of your memory when you open multiple tabs. For the same reason, your phone may hang, and you have to restart it to go back to the initial state.

You may uninstall Chrome now. I have got you a brand new browser for you. Zero Browser can be something new for you. Though this is not a prettiest browser and also it don’t have any revolutionary technology, but this is a decently small sized web browser for your android phone.

569 KB. That’s the size of this app. If you want to see web pages with styling via a moderate sized app, you can download APUS Browser (2.5 MB).
