Delhi Public Transport Offline
This might only be useful to those who live in the region, but Google's basic app for alerting users to details about the public transport system in the Delhi area should be quite useful for residents of the city. The niche of this app is that users can access public transport information for the Delhi Metro and Bus systems while offline, but an added feature of notifications on delays and news about the transit systems (internet required) makes for a little extra "something special." You can use the app to plan routes or just look up scheduling for upcoming transit times, or utilize a number of other features.
This is Verizon's recently launched go90 video app, which lets you stream and watch videos over a collective of different content types like the Daily Show, reality TV and others. Aside from just watching stuff, you can take any video you view and cut specific parts of the video out to share with other users, friends, or family so they can all experience the things you feel are worth sharing. The app is usable by any US carrier subscriber, but Verizon states that some content is limited to Verizon customers only.
InstantReplay Sideline Video
This is really only useful for coaches or other people/teams that stand on the sidelines for sports, but if you fall into that category this can be one useful tool to have. It lets you connect up multiple devices to one host device so everyone can view what the host is recording, with multiple playback options and editing tools to view every angle of every play during a game.
Adobe Capture CC
Adobe has been putting more and more of their apps and services on Android lately, and one of the most recent additions is Adobe Capture CC, which lets you basically extract colors from photos in your gallery or photo's you take with the camera to create unique and personalized color pallets for use with Adobe's other apps. More than that though, Capture CC also lets you convert images or other things like drawing into vector graphics, and you can use it to take your pictures and transform them into brushes. All of the creations can be used in other Adobe apps like Photoshop Cc and Illustrator CC.
Meter Live Wallpaper
If you love customization and live wallpapers just as much as you love things with a functional purpose, then Meter Live Wallpaper from Google Creative Lab is just the app for you. It's a live wallpaper that actually gives you details on things like WiFi status, battery meter, and notifications, and layers them with a material design inspired style. Of course, it wouldn't be live if it didn't move, which is why moving and twisting your phone around makes things move on screen. It's mostly something for aesthetics, but it's kind of cool and worth a look. Plus it's free.
This is geared towards those that have the Asus ZenWatch and ZenWatch 2, and if you fall into that category this is a must-have app. It lets you customize and tailor a unique looking watch face according to your specifications for use on your watch, and has options like customizable backgrounds, the look and color of the ticker, hour and minute hands, and which widgets you want on the face as well as the color of those widgets.
Adobe Illustrator Draw
This is the other most recent application launched by Adobe alongside the Capture CC app, and one of the apps you can use Capture CC with. Illustrator Draw lets you create hand-drawn vector illustrations with the touch of your finger, and once finished you can send everything to your Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC accounts. You've got plenty of tools and options for use here like ability to add layers, adjust the pen tips, and things like size, color, and opacity.
Swiftkey Neural Alpha
This is the latest project from the team at Swiftkey, and is a completely separate keyboard app from the original Swiftkey you may already know and love. It does however, use the same smart predictions and other useful features, while adding the element of better learning through the use of Deep Neural Network technology. This results in better word predictions, but keep in mind it's an early stage alpha version of the app, so it could be a bit buggy. having said that the app can only improve, and it's sure to over time.
If you're a fan of BuzzFeed and some of or most of the content that comes out of the site, then you'll want to take a look at BuzzFeed News, their latest Play Store addition which came out at the very end of last month. A team of editors curates the news stories you'll find here ranging from a vast collection of topics and categories, from both national and international. It's also got a fairly decent material design style UI.
