Utilities, social apps, photography, launchers, custom keyboards,icon pack,games...any app which you think everyone should have in their Moto G,you can post here.
I'm doing this thread so that users could use the best app for them in their Moto G,by using other geeks experiences.

2.Everyone have different choices,so you must respect their opinion.
3.Please give only the Play Store/XDA link of the app.[NO Mediafire,Drive,Dropbox,etc. link allowed.]
4.Max. 10 suggestion[Apps] allowed per member.

7 Essential Apps according to me-


1.Nova Launcher[No Root]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Free Version-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...launcher&hl=en
Paid Version-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...er.prime&hl=en

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It offers many features such as themes, scroll effects, widget overlapping and placing widgets in your dock.Plus now, "Ok Google" hotword detection is added .

My way to customize it-
....Just Gesture,no widgets,dock with Moonshine Icon Pack





2. Greenify [NO Root/Root[Xposed Framework needed too.]]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Free Version-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...greenify&hl=en
Donation Package-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nify.pro&hl=en

Video Tutorial To Install It--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J3CCpxJBuE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think it's one of the best utility app,you can put apps to "hibernation", thus freeing your ram and increasing your battery life.


3.QuizUp[No Root Obviously ]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Link-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...zup.core&hl=en
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For me it's the best trivia game ever......you can challenge your friends or fellow players,and you can increase your knowledge regarding any topic while getting entertained.




4.GMD Full-Screen Immersive Mode[No Root Required.]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Link-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mmersive&hl=en
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Think your navigation bar takes a unnecessary space,well now you can hide it and trigger it back when you want.

Bug-Keyboard may not work while navigation bar is hidden.


HomeScreen Full Screen Mode [Status Bar and Navigation Bar Hidden


5.ZPlayer [No Root]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Free-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nd.wpmusicfree
Paid-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....wpmusic&hl=en

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you love minimal design and want a bunch of features like artist bio,album info,lyric,equalizer,etc., then this might be the music player for you .




6.UC Browser [No Root Obviously ]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Link-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ile.intl&hl=en
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Its packed with lots of features like custom themes,Incognito Browsing,Night mode,add-ons etc plus its fairly faster....


7.ES File Explorer [Root/Non-Root]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Link-https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.pop&hl=en
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think everyone here is aware of ES File Manager,its one of the best management app offering build in ZIP and RAR support,Root explorer,application manager,etc

My Top Apps
These are my picks.

1.) MiXplorer Root/No Root [Best file manager I think out there. It has many options, is always being updated and has many themes.] ==> Here

2.) Kernel Tweaker Root [Way better than Performance Control] Playstore ==> Here If that says non-compatible try this ==> Here

3.) OmniSwitch [Doesn't come with my current rom I'm using so I search around till I found a fully working one] {the rules in the op said I couldn't post a link not from xda or the alike so if you'd like the working one which I mean fully functioning NO FC PM me and I hit you with link took alot of installing and uninstalling to find.}

4.) Xperia Z2 Smart Social Camera [Fun app to play with use it a lot] ==> {One I've been using} Here updated one ==> Here

There would have been more but people have already touched on those. So there's my list. If you want Omni PM me.

These are some of the apps i use, ill exclude the ones already mentioned by OP. Im sorry i cant post links yet so ill just post the names

No root required

BubbleUPnP
this app allows you to stream your media from your phone to different devices, tvs, gaming systems, computers, etc, its free and works really good


Maps Measure
this app allows you to measure the distance between two points, its really helpful if you want to have an approximate or are just curious, it comes in handy
NOTE: this is not a navigation map, like i said, it just to measure distances


The Cleaner
Cleaning app, in my opinion better,simpler, lighter than CleanMaster, try it.


Zedge
Ringtones, wallpapers, games, IT HAS EVERYTHING, and its free, i love this app, everytime ive searched for a ringtone, ive always found it, amazing app, and its free
