Top 10 New Android Apps — October 2018

AH Tasty app 11

October is behind us and it’s time to check out the best new apps that we’ve stumbled upon last month. The vast majority of these apps got announced in October, maybe even all of them, but for a couple of them we cannot be certain it did not happen a couple of days earlier. In any case, all of these apps are quite new, and we’ve talked about most of them during the month of October separately. There are some interesting additions here, some will help you become more productive, while most of them specialize in specific areas. Before you begin browsing, do keep in mind that these apps are not listed in a specific order.



Tasty is a cooking application. Chances are you’ve seen some of Tasty’s videos online, no matter if you’re into cooking or not. Well, now those videos and recipes in general are available via the company’s official application, which is actually quite good. This app brings you all those detailed recipes, step-by-step instructions on how to make them, and all that in a really nicely-designed app. You can save the recipes you like, and it’s worth noting that this app does have ads, nor in-app purchases, it’s completely free.



Have you ever wanted to get rid of a bunch of apps that are installed on your smartphone, but you couldn’t? Well, there’s an app for that, and it’s called UnApp. This app does not require you to have root access or anything of the sort, but it does allow you to easily uninstall a ton of apps at the same time, all you have to do is select them. The app comes with a clean design, and you can choose between light and dark themes here. In-app purchases are available, but you’re not forced to do anything, as the app is free to use.


Remote Fingerprint Unlock

Remote Fingerprint Unlock is an app that lets you unlock your PC using your smartphone. So, the process is quite simple, all you have to do is connect your PC and your Android smartphone, and once you do that, you will be able to unlock your PC using your smartphone’s fingerprint sensor, just like you would unlock your phone. The setup process will require a bit of your time, but it’s not difficult, and everything is explained in the description of this app on the Play Store. It’s also worth noting that the app comes with “Dark UI”, for your convenience.




Stories is a rather interesting journal / diary application. If you’d like to keep a diary, or simply keep track of things you’ve done in any particular time, Stories is a really nice app that will show you your content using its “timeline design”. The design of this app is actually what’s most appealing about it, it puts focus on the content you put it, and yet it adds some elements that make everything looks really nice. There are a number of ways you can edit your text to make it pop, and this app is free to use, while you can also lock it using your fingerprint scanner or PIN, in case you’d like to keep others from accessing it.



Statify is an app that basically gives you some info regarding your Spotify usage, and it’s not useful if you don’t actually use Spotify. Having said that, this app can show you your most listened Spotify artists, your most listened Spotify tracks, while you can also create a playlist with those tracks. This app can also sort your playlist tracks by name, popularity, tempo, energy, and so on. Statify also includes artist details, and it’s really simple to use, while ads are not included here.


Power Shortcuts

Power Shortcuts is a really useful app for those of you who want to do things faster on your smartphones. This application allows you to create a ton of various shortcuts, and it’s extremely simple to use, as it will guide you through the process one step at a time. All you need to do is choose an app, set ‘Activity’, and ‘Intent’, and you’re good to go. Possibilities are endless using this app, and the application itself is also well-designed, and easy to use, while you can also customize its look, if you want to. Do keep in mind that this is a paid app, though.


Three.do is basically a reminder app, but it’s considerably different than your regular reminders out there. This app creates reminders through three parameters, ‘who’, ‘what’, and ‘when’. You will see suggestions on your screen in form of cards, and if you don’t like any of those, you can create custom cards that will always be accessible to you, so you can basically just tap three times and set a reminder. This app has the potential to be your fastest reminder-setting app, especially if you use it for a while and set your custom cards.


Manyverse is a social network application which is using the SSB protocol (Secure Scuttlebutt) where you can write and share posts with friends nearby or over the internet. This app is considerably different than your regular social media networks, as it keeps the data on your phone, it does not send you off to servers God knows where. This app does not require you to log in, and it will not push ads your way, nor will it track your activity, says the company. The app is completely free and open source.

Smart School App

Smart School App is an application for teachers and parents of school kids. Using this app, teachers can keep parents updated on the progress of their child in many ways. Updates are instant, while the app supports invitation and notice-sending. Using this app, teachers can inform parents of any changes in regular school timings, inform them of their child’s attendance, and much more. This application does not come with ads, nor does it support in-app purchases, it’s completely free to use.


Cymetry is an app that “provides a different approach to learning mathematics”, says the developer. This app offers courses containing high school mathematics, or those of you who are looking to learn more, or just test your knowledge. You can watch various lectures using this app, in a video format, and the app’s design is also good enough, as it does put focus on the content, in this case, math. The app is completely free, it does not come with ads or in-app purchases.
