It depends on who you ask. To me, it is simply:
- Audio and video editing
- Document processing
- Password managers
- Web browsers
- Video games
- Conference software
- Development software
Some might add 3d modeling tools, content streaming tools, or maybe torrenting utilities to this list. But for my day-to-day use on a computer, I interact with these software packages the most.
For this tutorial, I won't be covering Development software as I will get more involved in setting up and configuring these software packages on Android in a later tutorial. But I will briefly go over a few repositories that contain useful tools that I intend to use.
I also won't be going over the specific tools that I intend to use for everything but development. Everyone has their favorite document processor or PDF reader, no point in trying to convince you otherwise.
- Have the Google Play Store installed on your device.
- Search for any of the keywords listed above in the Google Play Store search bar.
And that's it. That is the end of part 1 of this roadmap, which again was to install the "vanilla" software of Android. In the next tutorial, I will go over the development setup that I have done.
But if you want to jump the gun on what software I intend to use, checkout Termux on F-Droid.
Termux is the killer app that allows for desktop-class development to happen on Android OS.
