Updated: 42 Free and Useful Android Applications including Track Virus and IZEE TV

Hi Everyone!

I updated my list of free and useful Android applications.
The list has 42 free and useful applications that I recommend. 
Several of the programs are supported by ads and some have 
ad-free paid versions. 
After each application description is a link to its download page. 
Note to Apple users: Many of these applications are also 
available for Apple iOS devices.
I am not connected or know any of the developers / owners.
There are no affiliate links or advertising on my page.

The 6 new additions are:

1. Track Virus - Israelis developed this new app, in partnership with 
United Hatzalah of Israel, that lets the user know if she or he has 
been exposed to someone diagnosed with the COVID-19 novel coronavirus.
The information is kept anonymously on each smartphone and 
is not uploaded to the cloud. Downloading does not require any form 
of identification or information gathering.

The app works by crosschecking a person's path with the paths of 
confirmed patients of the coronavirus as listed by the Health Ministry. 
Should a person have been in a location where a confirmed ill person 
was they will receive a notification on their app. 
It is important to note that the application only works from the time 
it is downloaded and not retroactively.

2. Zap Price Comparison - presenting more than a million products from 
1,300 e-commerce stores. Compare prices for each product, 
read users reviews on products and stores, get detailed products specs.
