To sum up, the worst type of Android app would be: a Useless X-Ray Antivirus RAM booster and Battery Defrag Memory Manager. Time to re-download the Android SDK and monetize the idea, Luis!

I downloaded Clean Master and after that my phone started hanging very much, I uninstalled it later. It's silly to use such apps.

I disagree, in some cases, it is useful, I also disagree with peter on ram cleaners as some times u do need to clean some ram, useless cache from the phone(u feel the phone is slow because once the phone clean the ram, it will try to restart some background tasks which had been closed, makes phone sliw for some secs Some battery apps are actually useful as the change the settings automatically once battery is low... Well I had a great laugh on other apps

This is quite fun, had long laughs reading this. The average Joes among us still downloads these apps no matter what you tell them, especially, ram and memory boosters, battery boosters and anti virus/malware apps.

On defragmentation: No android application *can* defragment the storage, since they simply do not have any access to that AT ALL. Anti-virus on Android is actually the EXACT SAME as defragmentation. It doesn't matter if you go to the big guys or the little guys for it... the result is the same: They simply DO NOT HAVE ACCESS required to scan ANYTHING. Lie detectors... may actually be possible. Not saying that any of them are legit (I would be highly surprised if there was one...), but certainly with the right hardware, this could be done. For example, a MUSE headband could DEFINITELY be a data source for a lie detector. Is the SDK out for that yet?

They are apps meant to be used for 5 min, laughed at and then discarded. Most free versions have adds, so owner earns a little money from the 5 min usage and is likely spitting out same type of "5 min laugh" apps, simple to make and is probably earning enough to justify it.

1- In the pictres above there is few app icons which does different things than the labled useless apps. e.g. DU Battery saver and snapdragon batteryguru are battery saving app not Battery calibration. also Tablet Antivirus from AVG (Which you said is from Big company) and Network Signal Speed Booster which is already included on your signal boosting apps. 2- I remmember that old android versions before ICS weren't able free ram and reboot apps in that way and that's why these ram apps were very functional and famous but now Android System do that by itself. 3- With Rooting there is apps that Boost apps by not allowing them to reboot and there is apps that boost internet by not allowing other apps to use internet.( I don't know about other other internet boosting apps. 4- Useless apps are really funny :DD
