    I have just upgraded my phone to the s6 edge and wondering what android apps you use relevant to IT Techs. I'm happy for paid or free.
    I currently have
    Wifi 360 pro
    Skype
    msecure password manager

    If it helps I work as a IT Technician in schools and help out family/friends.
    Sorry if this has been asked before - couldn't find a search relating to specifically IT Tech apps.
    Also if you know of an app to keep an inventory of computers. Like - when purchased, hardware, asset etc. We have computers that are all purchased at different years etc and not always easy to keep track and look up how old it is.

    IPcalc for when I'm lazy
    Wifi Analyzer

    I don't find that I use my phone much for work besides email.

    securebot and maybe inssider

    Otherwise like voyager I'm probably already on my work PC since in a service provider network environment, most of your work is remote :p

    Being a student IT technician at school I find the Office 365 Admin app really useful for managing Office 365 licenses/users. Admittedly I don't use it on Android (I use Windows Phone), but it's available for Android and iOS too. Great if you're managing Office 365 environments!

    WiFi Analyzer finds out the strength of the wifi signal around your house & finds out which neighbour's network is interfering with your wireless channel.

    I hardly use my Android phone as the company has provided me a Dell Latitude E5540 so when I am on the go I usually have my laptop. However for the few times I need to use my phone I have

    Spiceworks (for ticket management)
    JuiceSSH for the few RedHat servers we have
    Microsoft RDP for our Windows servers (extreme situation)
    default gmail client I have integrated with exchange
