Best Android Apps – July 2017

July 14, 2017 - Written By Justin Diaz

Applications launch on Android and mobile devices in general at such a rapid rate it can sometimes be hard to keep up with what’s all available out there. If you find yourself in a position of wanting or needing a new app that will help with a particular function that you hope to use your mobile device for, you’re in the right place, as it’s that time of the month where we’ve rounded up a list of apps worth considering. Not all of the apps on this list will cater to every single user, but there’s a good chance that everyone will be able to find at least one app which might be useful to them. With that said, let’s take a look at the list of apps below.

Caledos Runner – GPS Running Cycling Walking

If you’re of the mind that there may be too many apps of this particular persuasion, you’re not alone. There are a lot of them and perhaps too many to make a decision quickly, but it’s not about finding an app fast all the time. You want the right app for the job based on your needs and wants, and Caledos Runner just might be that app if you’re looking for an app which tracks your runs. More than that though, Caledos lets you measure your time and distance, the ability to see your running data from an analytical view, and there’s even a “live tracking” option so you can let others know you’re running and where, and that’s not all as the app is packed with other features.

PlayStation Video Android TV

PlayStation Video isn’t a new app itself but the Android TV version of it is. If you own a PlayStation console and you also own an Android TV device, now you can access any of the purchased PlayStation video content like movies and TV shows from that Android TV unit. Sure, both the console and your Android TV may be plugged into the same TV, but if you’re not already using your PlayStation, there’s now no longer a need to turn it on to get to the video content.

Persona 5 IM App

This is more of a niche offering but it’s a good one if you’re a fan of the Persona series of RPGs. As an app that hasn’t been out long there may be a feature or two that it’s lacking, but overall it is a well-rounded chat app and it comes in the exact same style as the chat in the game – Persona 5. It’s colorful, stylish, and quite honestly a little bit fun.

Flowx

In the name of simplicity without giving up too much, or anything, Flowx is a weather app that aims to deliver all of the necessary weather information you might need on one single screen. There are more than 30 different types of data that you can see within the app, and while there are other screens within it, the majority of the information you might want to see at a glance can all be accessed from the main screen, all you’ll need to do is scroll up and down the page.

Fingerprint Gestures

For starters, this is an unreleased application so there will be updates to it as this is an unfinished version of the product. You’ll also need to be running Android O for it work and you do of course need a phone with a fingerprint sensor. If you meet the criteria this will be a useful app to have on hand as it expands the capabilities of your phone’s fingerprint sensor, by letting you incorporate a handful of gestures. These gestures will let you initiate actions that do any number of things from launching an app, to going back to the home screen, to enabling split screen.

This is quite obviously a VR app, but it’s one that’s catered to BBC content. It allows for access to 360-degree video and other 360 content that’s based on BBC programming, like Planet Earth II, and it offers things like binaural audio so you have more immersive sound for whatever it is you’re viewing.
