Default Top root apps for S4??

Been a while since I've gotten into the root game. I'm back into an S4! So what do you guys think are the best apps I should download?? And what do they do?

Thanks in advance!!

Each app is different as are people's tastes in apps. You will have to decide what you need/want. Best app/ROM threads are not really allowed on XDA. You are required to research and find what you should use.

Like what was mentioned, be careful not to ask questions with "best mods/tools/apps/elephants/bananas for the <insert phone model here>". Mods won't like it.

However, these two forums should be able to help you:
1. General
2. App Dev

... and Google of course. Good luck.
Phone: Bell Galaxy S4 i337M [Locked, Rooted]
ROM: GOLDENEYE27 XXUFNC5
Kernel: Adam
Modem: NC1

Phone: T-Mobile Galaxy S3 T999 [Unlocked, Rooted]
ROM: CyanogenMod 10.0.0
Kernel: Stock CM
Modem: MD5


Some advice: if you're on the old i337M bootloader (pre-4.3), STAY THERE. DO NOT UPDATE THE BOOTLOADER.
On a Touchwiz ROM and hate Samsung's Settings app layout? Wanna have it in list format like on AOSP? Check out this simple tweak.

If you have to ask this question why did you root in the first place? I ask that in all seriousness. You're risking bricking your device by rooting if you mess something up, why would you take that risk if you're not sure what root does.

pguillory -

The question you should ask is "Do I need root and what would I use it for?"

My easy first answer:

Titanium Backup.
ES File Explorer

(BTW, there really is very little risk bricking it if you use the easy method. Search forum for the thread.)
