    well i have just finished rooting my phone, and i was expecting to find another app store, or link to a website to download apps that arent avaliable on google play, but found no such thing, so i was wondering if any of you had any apps that you think i should try, and/or a good place to look for some.

    all help appreciated!

    These are the root only apps I use:

    Rom toolbox pro
    Root explorer
    WiFi tether
    Rom manager
    Titanium backup Stickmount

    You can look them up on the play store.

    actually no, but jailbreaking for friends/family has been my only experience in this type of thing.
    thanks, ive already checked out a few and they work great!

    Custom recovery and roms are the big thing for me after rooting. Stock roms have so much bloatware and features that you don't need or don't have ones you want, its great to be able to install your favorite. As far as apps, root explorer, titanium backup, cwm, superuser, ROM toolbox, beats audio, (be careful with that one, it can brick your phone if its not compatible) there's so many its hard for me to come up with a list of my favorites.

    Everything is available on the Play Store because Google allows you to tinker with your phone. Apple refuses apps that change the experience of how they want you to use your phone. That's why there are apps that are available for iPhones that aren't available in their app store.

    You can install apps from other sources without rooting if you want. That's a big difference between android and iOS.

    You can install apps from any sources you want with android - love this freedom) Rooting just is essential for some of the apps

    Rooting is pretty much the equivalent of having admin rights on a PC, it makes you the boss of your device lol. Some apps need to do things to folders that hold data essential to your phone working right or at all, having root allows them to be installed. That's why you have to be careful and have a recovery ready, just in case something goes horribly wrong! I've been to Walmart more than once returning a phone i screwed up, mostly because there was no recovery for that device yet.

    Whoops. Supposed to have been:

    Titanium backup

    Two very different things, but probably my two favorite root-needed apps.

    Android isn't like Apple. You don't get free things from rooting. I wish people would finally understand the difference.

    titanium backup is a must, get the pro version just for batch restore.

    Root explorer isn't needed. ES file explorer does the same things and much more for free.

    With so many here calling themselves tech geeks, I'm surprised I don't read more people recommending busybox and a terminal emulator.

    I prefer root explorer for my root needs, but use es file explorer as my normal one.
