Modified Android Apps

Android is the most versatile mobile operating system. It is also the most widely used operating system at the moment. What makes Android so good is its open-source nature. This allows developers and programmers to mold the operating system according to the way they want. Not only the operating system, but developers also modify the applications and release the aftermarket versions with better functionality. There is an aftermarket version of almost every popular application. For example, you can find a modified version of the YouTube application with background and audio playback. There is a modified WhatsApp with extended features and so on.

The purpose of these modified applications is to give the users access to the hidden features. The applications are basically much more capable of what they are in the original form. The original application developers lock down those features to keep from loss of viewership and revenue. The Android OS does not restrict the use of modified applications, so, the developers keep coming up with something new every now and then.

If you are an advanced Android user and you are now looking for the best modified Android apps, you have landed at the right place. In this post, I will show you the 5 best modified Android apps. I am listing down only 5 applications here as these are the only 5 apps that are still working. The app companies crack down the modified applications quickly, so its really difficult for a modifed app to survive for long.

YouTube Vanced

The YouTube Vanced is a tweaked YouTube app with features like Background Music Play and Download. It looks like the original YouTube. It has all the features that you will find in the original app. The only extended features here are its background play which can save your internet data. Users can login using their YouTube account in the YouTube Vanced. This will let them access their playlists and liked videos. Those of you who want to multi-task while playing the YouTube in parallel, this is the best choicce for them. This is one of the best modified YouTube apps that still works great.

Fouad WhatsApp

Fouad WhatsApp gives you the basic WhatsApp functionality with added features. It has a huge number of useful features. For example, you can find the call block feature which will only restrict someone from calling you (on the original WhatsApp, blocking someone blocks from everything). You can change the whole UI of WhatsApp. This includes changing the forward icon color, forward background color, participant color, data color, and a lot more.

If you don’t like that forward tag before the videos and pictures, you can disable it in the Fouad WhatsApp. If you want your and the sender’s texts to have a different color, Fouad WhatsApp will let you do that. It also has a few languages that are not there in the original WhatsApp. If you don’t want someone to delete there message once you get it, you can turn on the anti-delete feature in it. Fouad WhatsApp brings a bunch of themes which means instead of changing the in-conversation wallpaper, you can change the whole UI. You can learn more about this application by getting your hands on it.

MusicPiped is also a modified YouTube application. Apparently, it is a music player, but it doesn’t stream music from your phone’s local storage. It loads it from YouTube instead. The search button of MusicPiped looks through the YouTube database to find your desired video. It then fetches the audio of that video and plays it on your phone. Now that you are playing the audio only, it will consume the least amount of internet data. If you cannot afford a live music stream application like Spotify, you may just use MusicPiped as its replacement.

GBWhatsApp is another application like Fouad WhatsApp. It allows changing almost all the elements in GBWhatsApp. You can see the last seen of the other content while they have it hidden. You can block someone from deleting a message. The call blocker to block a specific contact is also there. From the buttons of your WhatsApp chat to the theme of the whole app, you can change pretty much everything. You can hide the second tick that appears after the message is delivered. There is a way to turn off blue ticks, you can also hide the writing tick. The recording status of a voice message can be hidden too. GB WhatsApp is also continuously updated and it still works. If you don’t like those limits in the official WhatsApp, GBWhatsApp is your way to go.

GB Instagram

And here is the modified Instagram app. This gives you extended control over your Instagram activities. You can mark a conversation with a star to keep it highlighted in your inbox. Hide the story-seeing status, it means that others will not be able to know if you saw their story or not. You can disable the right and left drag option in the application. If you want to download images, stories, and videos from Instagram, you will find the options in GB Instagram. This application will let you zoom in and out of the photos. Normally, you cannot copy a picture’s description on Instagram, but with GB Instagram, you can do that too. You can get the Notification count on the phone too. This will also let you run two instances of Instagram in the same phone, but you can add two Instagram accounts in the official Instagram app too now.

Wrap Up

That’s all with our list of best modified Android apps. The applications look lucrative at first, but we suggest you proceed with caution. The reason is that these are the reverse-engineered versions of the official applications. When you log in using your main account, the original app developers know that you are using a modified version and they have every single right to kick you out of the application. Even if you are planning to use one of these applications, we suggest you to not to use your main account in any of these.
