The Best New Android Apps of the Week – April 7, 2013
Floating apps are apps that stay on top of other apps, and Carsten Drösser’s Tiny Apps gives you 5 floating apps in one tidy package. You’ll get a recorder, music player, calculator, paint app, and a note taking app. Each has their own set of features, and you can move or resize any of your floating app windows. There’s a free version of the app you can check out, and the full version will only set you back $1.92.
The folks at Fully Delusions have put out some killer apps and their latest is no exception. Random – Generate Randomness is a random numbers generator that can generate a load of different things like passwords, clock times, colors, names, words, and even dice rolls. Random has an ad-supported version that’s free to download; if you like what you see you can pick up the ad-free version for $1.99.
If you’re a fan of The Colbert Report today’s your lucky day. MTV released The Colbert Report App and it’s full of great stuff if you’re a fan of the show. You’ll get to browse the clip archive, set reminders, share videos, and catch the latest up on the latest happenings from the show. There aren’t any full episodes unfortunately, but it’s still a cool app nonetheless. The Colbert Report app is free to download if you want to give it a go.
4. Sphere Share
The SphereShare app is an app that’s all about Photo Spheres as it allows you to upload, browse, and share your cool pics with others. The app works in conjunction with the SphereShare.net and is very easy to use; needless to say it’s an app you’ll definitely want to check out if you’re lucky enough to have Photo Sphere on your phone. You can pick up Jakub Kinst’s SphereShare for free on Google Play.
The folks at Rosetta Stone released their official Android app last week, and it’s one of the best way to learn a language on the go. Rosetta Course has 24 different languages, and the lessons make learning a breeze through the use of sound, pictures, and text. The app is free to download and you’ll get to sample the languages, but you’ll have to pay (its expensive) to do any of the full courses.
6. Hitman ICA
Square Enix pleased a lot of Hitman fans last week with the release of Hitman ICA for Android. The app syncs up with your game and allows you to set up contracts, upgrade weapons, and access the ICA database. Agent 47 would be pleased, and fans of Hitman Absolution will dig it as well. You can pick up Hitman ICA for free on Google Play.
7. Spark Pay
Everyone has their own credit card reader these days and Capital One just got in on the action with their Spark Pay app. The app allows you to accept all major credit cards through your phone with a little help from a card reader. You’ll have to pay a fee per swipe, but the service, app, and reader are all free once you sign up. It’s a nice service, and read a bit more about it here if you’re interested. If you want to give the app a look you can check it out for free on Google Play.
Autodesk released SketchBook Ink for tablet last week, and if you’re the artistic type today is your lucky day. Sketchbook Ink gives you a nice toolbox to create with as you’ll be able to work with layers, colors, and several different preset ink-styles. I haven’t used this one yet, but if it’s half as cool as SketchBook Pro for Tablets it’ll be a solid app. SketchBook Ink will set you back $4.99 and is available to download from the Play Store.
