We all know there's a whole universe beyond Google and Apple's gargantuan app stores. We also know that it is not only high profile, everyone-uses-them apps that are worthy of our attention. Just look at our 10 fantastic Android & iOS apps & games that no one has probably told you about, or 5 prime Android apps you won't find in the Google Play Store selections.
There are so many hidden gems out there that we have some serious trouble wading through everything! So, how about you give us a hand? Tell us about your favorite "underground" apps that not many, if anyone at all seems to know about.
Use the comments section and give your own favorite apps some much needed exposure!

SwipePad Heard about it once when it first came out years ago. Never again. Always one of the first things I set up on my new phone. Just a little bit faster way to get to my most used apps from literally any and every screen.

Simon Tatham's Puzzles by Chris Boyle. A collection of puzzles from Minesweeper to Sudoku (although with different names, presumably for trademark considerations). Free and Open Source. No ads, no unnecessary permissions, no Internet connection required. Also all puzzles are generated internally so you don't have to download "puzzle packs." You can vary the difficulty, automatically save and resume puzzles, undo moves, etc. Also, if you like crosswords, Shortyz Crosswords which pulls crosswords off a variety of websites.
