It’s that time of the week. Time to check out a few new apps that are pretty darn good and worth checking out. This week quite a few new apps entered the Play Store, but this isn’t about just new apps, but rather good apps in general that you may have never heard about. So let’s name off our 5 apps for the week.
Yes, it finally made it to Android. After being on iOS for a few months. Vine is owned by Twitter and basically allows you to create 6 second gif’s of yourself or other things. As they describe it “Vine is the best way to see and share life in motion.” Which after using it for a few days, I’m inclined to agree.
We actually covered this one yesterday in our Android App of the Day, but Camera 2 is a new camera app that allows you to add real-time effects like using a camera from the 20’s, using a retro camera, or even a comic camera. It’s actually a pretty cool camera app and it’s about $2.99 USD on the Play Store.
AVG Battery Saver & TuneUp
As Android users we are always trying to optimize our battery life. Many of us turn to apps to help optimize battery life like Juice Defender and Battery Guru. This is what AVG aims to do with this app. It uses a task killer to help save power and manage storage space. Which is good for those without a microSD card slot.
Who doesn’t love a new launcher? Well Splay Launcher is currently in beta, but it’s a unique home launcher for Android devices that puts your own activity preferences at the heart of your mobile experience. Which sounds really cool, and is even better when you see it on your device.
Status Agenda Beta
Tired of the Google Calendar app? Check out Status Agenda beta. It’s a new agenda app that uses Google Calendar to show your upcoming appointments in the status bar. It also requires Android 4.0 or higher.
