My favorites are:

MS Word Online (Chrome extension)
Mighty Text (Chrome extension - I can send and receive text messages thru my phone on my Chromebook)
Volkron Checkbook (Android checkbook register app)
Microsoft Outlook (Android app)
Pi Music Player (Android app)
VLC (android app )


Right now all I have is LastPass installed but I’m watching this thread because I’d love more suggestions!

What do you guys use the VLC extension for? Or is this the Chrome App?

I use it to watch videos that are saved on my SD card. DVDs that I copied previously.

I use VLC to watch local copies of movies or TV. Ideal when travelling and you cant stream content. It plays pretty much every file type going as well.

I tried both the Android VLC app and the VLC chrome extension. I found that I liked the android app more, for playing videos off the SD card.
