Top 10 New Android Apps of the Week – April 30, 2012
Sorry we missed last weeks list, but we’re back this week for a new Top 10. Without further ado, we proudly present Android-Apps.com’s Top 10 New Android Games of the Week…
All week long we’ve heard rumors of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3, and Samsung was nice enough to put out an app to highlight their unpacked event coming up in a few days. The Samsung Mobile Unpacked app will give you information about the event, locations, and even some teasers to get you ready. It also allows you to watch the event “live” if you can’t make it to London for the big event. If you’re interested in the new Samsung products that will be unveiled this week you’ll definitely want to grab the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 app.
Communilator is a new translation app from Rantnetwork Inc that works to recognize and translate foreign text in over 40 foreign languages. It can translate foreign text images taken with your phone, speak text translations to you, and even does voice recognition which lets you speak in one language and hear then translated into another. Basically it will translate damn near anything you throw at it as long as it’s not an alien language. There’s a free version of Communilator you can try or you can skip right to the full version for $2.99.
Swiss Codemonkeys definitely has a lock on the “make me” apps as they’ve just released another one called Make Me A Pirate. If you’ve ever wondered what you’d look like as an old timey pirate, wonder no more as this app will make that dream a reality. You can checkout Make Me A Pirate for free on Google Play.
4. Cube Complex
It’s been awhile since we’ve put a Live wallpaper on our list, but we recently found a cool new one called Cube Complex from Toxic Bakery. This funky Live Wallpaper gives you ever changing multi-colored cubes that glow and move around your screen at adjustable speeds. It’s a very cool LWP and looks great on a tablet. You can try out the free version of Cube Complex or pick up the full version for only $0.99.
Color Splash FX is a new Android app from Androidslide makers of the popular Camera Zoom FX app. Color Spash does exactly what the title implies and lets you quickly add color to your photos with the touch of a finger. Color Splash FX is free to download on Google Play.
Cubby is a new app that lets you get to your important pics, docs, or anything else on any device at anytime. You’ll make folders into “cubbies” which allows you to stay up-to-date on all your Android devices; you can also share cubbies with friends and colleagues for easy collaboration. The app is free, but in Beta and you can get an invite at cubby.com.
Another week… another talking animal app, and once again its Oufit7 behind strings of a new app called Tom’s Messenger. The app brings back the famous Talking Tom, but this time around you’ll be able to send video messages to your friends and family via text, Facebook, twitter, etc… If you enjoyed one of their other 20 talking animal apps, you’ll probably want to get this. You can get Tom’s Messenger for free on Google Play.
I don’t own an Xbox 360, but I am a Star Wars fan so this one made the list. The Kinect Star Wars app let’s you connect with friends via Facebook and twitter. There’s also mention of getting your feeds in the style of the Star Wars opening scroll which sounds pretty damned cool to be honest. That being said users of the app seem to be split down the middle about it with some loving it, and others detesting it. If you’re a Star Wars fan you’ll understand the love/hate relationship with anything Star Wars related, and you’ll also probably download this app. You can check out Microsoft’s Kinect Star Wars app for free on Google Play.
9. Privacy Safe
Want to keep your phone locked down? If so you may want to check out Privacy Safe from Security Dev Team. This handy little app has call block, one-key delete, PIN permissions, customized notifications, and blacklisting support among other things. You can check out Privacy Safe for yourself on Google Play for free.
TinyList is an easy way to make simple check lists for anything you like. You can make lists with just a few simple taps, and navigation is a breeze. If you’re looking for a new Todo list maker, TinyList is definitely worth a look. You can check out Marcelo Blanco’s TinyList on Google Play for $0.99.
