Download apps on your TracFone by navigating to the TracFone website and accessing the Apps and More section. Accessing it requires entering your phone number. Not all TracFones can download and run apps. As of December 2014, some TracFones able to use apps include the LG Ultimate 2, the Moto E and the Alcatel Onetouch, TracFone Android phones can also access and download apps through the Google Play store.
The TracFone app lets users more easily manage their TracFone account and check their balance. If your phone allows you to move apps to an SD card, AppMgr III helps you make room on your phone. TracFone's Android phones sometimes have less free space available for apps and may benefit from this feature.
TracFone also offers a number of free social media applications, including Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter. These applications help TracFone users keep up with friends and family while providing those groups with information and pictures from their own lives.
Other apps for communication include Textra, which replaces standard text messaging with many extra features and customizable options. If you prefer video communication, the Google Hangout app helps you conduct group video calls while also allowing you another way to send text messages and photos.
