Everyone has read quotes at some point in their lives. Whether it’s, “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish” by the late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs or Gandhi’s “An eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind”. Quotes have not only motivated individuals but can uplift an entire generation of thinkers. So, if you’re feeling demotivated or you just want some inspiration, here are the best quotes apps for your Android phone.
7 Best Quote Apps for Your Android in 2020
1. Best Quotes and Status
This app is for anyone looking for a large collection of quotes and yes it works offline. The app comes with a minimal home screen and the quotes segregated into categories like anger, birthday, love and even break-up (yes, there’s an entire category for it). Tapping onto the categories gives you a list of quotes that you can save, copy or share straightaway either as a text or an image for your next WhatsApp status.
By default, the quotes are displayed in plain text. However, tapping on the quotes gives you plenty of background options ranging from a gradient to picture and solid colour. You can even bookmark your favourite quotes by liking them which in turn will appear in your Liked Quotes section. There is also a pro-ad-free version which costs $1 and watermark from the images. This app is great for basic usage, however, I would have loved a home page widget which delivers new quotes every day.
- A large collection of quotes

- Option to change image background

2. Brilliant Quotes
Like the previous app, Brilliant Quotes not only have a huge collection of handpicked quotes but also supports widgets. For those of you who don’t know, widgets lets you see the quotes directly on the home screen. So you don’t have to open the app every time to view or modify it. Additionally, you can also tweak the layout, appearance and content of the widget within the app itself. If you want more than one widget, you can easily save more than one profile.
The app is divided into several sections. The most important being the morning quote section which also comes along with random and trending quotes. In the second section, you can see similar quotes or can simply tap and view related content as it is hashtag based, unlike the previous one which was category based. The third is dedicated to picture quotes, it isn’t well curated like the other sections nor do you have the option to edit the image quotes.
You can choose which type of quotes to display in the widget. But you want specific quotes on each day of the week, there is no option but to go premium at $1.7. In addition to that, you get daily quote notification, removal of ads and a daily quote notification every day.
- Customizable Widget
- Trending Quotes section
- No option to edit images
- Banner ads at the bottom
- Need to sign-in to add favourites
- No offline support

Unlike most of you, I don’t want to be motivated just in the morning and this app is the ideal solution for it. So, the motivation app lets you choose a time frame where you’ll be notified with a quote. The app is simple and doesn’t have too many options. You can choose a start and end time and also the number of times you’ll be notified with a quote, maximum being 30.
Besides that, it has a very minimal UI. You see the quote in with black font and white background on the home screen. There is a theme section as well which changes the app home screen wallpaper. I like the app overall, although most of the categories like body positivity, goal focus, coping with death, are locked for premium users.
The app has a 7-day trial period but is activated only after you pay for the plan you choose, which doesn’t make sense. It costs $3.15 which gives you all the categories, full reminder feature and also removes all the ads. Oh, If you’ve your own quotes, you can add it to the list, but that’s just restricted to plain text.
- Time Frame Reminders
- Clean UI
- Can watch ads to access certain features
- Most categories are paid
- No free trial
This one is a new app as compared to others on the list, but it doesn’t shy away from having a large database of quotes. Similar to the first app, Quotee also groups the same type of quotes in a single tab, such as motivation, hope, funny, anger, etc. It aces in terms of a very simple UI, which lets you either browse through categories and search for a specific type/keyword. You also have the option to download the quote to your gallery, share it or add it to favourites.
The app has a fresh quotes section which touts to fetch new quotes from the internet. In my opinion, the app can improve on two fronts. Firstly, I miss a solid/gradient background on my quotes, which makes the current quotes UI look more text-based. Secondly, an option to save quotes to the gallery without the watermark.
- Database of quotes
- Zero ads
- Fresh quotes from the net
- No option to add colour to quotes background
- Watermark on the download (can be cropped)
If you want to share a part of the song you’re listening to, Musixmatch is the app you need. To make a lyrics card all you have to do is open the app and search for the lyrics you want to add. Select lyrics that’ll go into your lyrics card. You can then click on the quote icon on the top. This gives you a few customization options. For example, you can change the image background with pre-loaded pictures or choose one from your gallery. There is a font section as well, here you can make the font small to large, along with alignment options. You can also change the font style if you like.
There are extra details like the singer and song title along with a watermark. But it’s so subtle that it doesn’t bother me. So, the next time you’re listening to a song and you see yourself emotional. Simply select lyrics, add an image and share it on social media or loved ones.
- Large lyrics database
- Picture and text customization
- Can drag and move the text
- Musixmatch watermark
- Not a dedicated quotes app
YourQuote is just like Instagram for quotes. People share quotes, which you can like, comment and even share your own. You have to sign-up before you start creating quotes. On the home screen, you’re given two options as you sign up, You can either find writers to follow based on categories like film, politics, life, etc. You can scroll through these picture quotes and also follow profiles you like. It also somewhat mimics Instagram, where you can comment like and save quotes.
Creating a quote is also fairly easy. You start by typing the quote in plain text and further can add images, animations, and filters to the text, to make it look appealing. You also get to change the text size, add your name, and also change and download multiple fonts. Lastly, after you publish 48 posts, you unlock the publishing feature. With this, you can not only publish an online book but also earn royalties in the longer run. What do you do now? Post it, and let people enjoy your writing!
- Lets you create Quotes
- Built like a social media platform
- Study your channel stats
- Supports Regional Quotes
- Not for non-writers
- Permanent watermark
7. Wallpaper (Reddit)
Wallpaper as the name suggests grabs pictures from subreddit and sets them as your phone’s wallpaper. The best part is, it lets choose the subreddit, so you can handpick your favourite quotes, like r/quotes, r/QuotesPorn, r/stoicquotes and many more and set them as your wallpaper. In addition to this, you can also time it to change automatically and add multiple subreddits for diverse options.
Another very useful feature is marking an image as a favourite, which makes it repeat in the future. There are editing options but I feel it’s just bare-minimum. You can control the blur, saturation, change brightness and also choose whether the image will be in max resolution or compressed. The app isn’t free, but for what it offers, I suggest you buy the app for $1.
- Automatically changes the wallpaper
- Can add multiple subreddit
- Just restricted to Reddit
- Might not always fetch a quote but a picture
Finally, these are some apps that might motivate and inspire you but hard work has no substitute. So rather than a long closing statement, I’ll leave you with what Maria Sharapova the veteran tennis player has said,
I have had lots of luck in my career but there has also been a lot of hard work.
