Linux is regarded as the best operating system for ethical hacking and penetration testing also called pentesting. There are various hacking apps available for Android, as it is a Linux based operating system. If you want to test out vulnerabilities and find bugs, you need a solid hacking tool to back your research up.
Below is a list of Android hacking applications that will convert your Android device into a hacking machine.
