PayPal for Android combines all of the features you use most on the Web with some new ways to pay, specifically added for smartphones. It's the most popular way to pay online for a reason, and this app is a seamless display of everything the service can do. If you buy things online -- or your favorite businesses use it instead of Square -- it's a nearly flawless download.

If you're one of the few people who don't have a PayPal account, you can sign up right from the app. When you sign in, PayPal for Android may text you with an authorization code to make sure it's actually you. From there, you can do anything you'd do on the Web version of PayPal. That includes sending and receiving money, checking your balance and recent transactions, and even updating your payment methods. Like many banking apps, you can snap a picture of a check for a quick deposit into your account. When you make a deposit, your account is updated in seconds. If a local business near you accepts PayPal, you can unlock special perks or pay for goods in real life using your balance, too. All of these features are presented in a layout that actually looks better than PayPal's Web layout.

If you use the service enough to even think about downloading this app, you probably should. PayPal for Android has enough features to get you excited, but is familiar enough to let you get your account up and running in a few seconds.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
