We’re back and things are back to normal this week with our picks for the Top New Android Apps of the Week. After last week’s experiment we’re going back to Sundays as well as separate lists on the sites. Now that we got that out of the way it’s on to the apps…
Nik software released Snapseed this week and photo sharers around the world rejoiced. Snapseed is a great new photo app that lets you enhance, transform, and share your photos in a fun and easy way. It’s packed full of cool features, and even has Google + built in to make sharing easy. Snapseed is free to download on Google Play.
The craft marketplace known as ETSY finally released their official app this week, and it’s been a long time coming for fans of the site. If you want to learn more about the ETSY app you can read our full review here or pick it up for free on Google Play.
Karl’s Castle is an interactive childrens book from the folks at Wolkenlenker UG. This fairytale has 70 interactions, 50 characters, and 3 fun mini-games. I haven’t played this one personally, but noticed this one on a friend’s device and it was impressive and very well done. I’ll have go hands on with this one for this weeks “Kids picks”, but if you want to give it a go now you can pick it up for $2.99.
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve featured a Live wallpaper, but we found a slick new one with Lonely Tree Live Wallpaper. It’s a simple, somber winter scene that’s fully customizable and very beautiful. There’s a full-featured trial version you can check out, and the full version will only set you back $1.00.
5. Ink Over App
The Ink Over Apps app is one of the cooler apps we’ve seen lately and for good reason as it lets you draw or make notes “over” any app you have running. There are hundreds of uses for this handy little app and it’s a free download if you want to give it a go. You should definitely give it a go…
If you’re looking for a new Android launcher that’s quicker than the rest, Action Launcher Pro might just be the thing for you. The app is designed to get things done quicker and it has a simple to use layout that’s easy on the eyes. As cool as the app is there isn’t a free version to try and it’s a bit buggy in spots so you’ll want to keep that refund window in mind or possibly wait for an update. It ran great on one of my devices, but not so much on another. You can pick up Chris Lacy’s Action Launcher Pro for $3.99 on Google Play.
The Multi-User App Share app helps to let you enable apps across several devices with Android 4.2’s multi-user feature. It’s in BETA right now and you have to be Rooted to use it, but it’s a very cool app that’s worth a look if you’re rooted an on 4.2. If you meet the requirements and have a compatible device you can get the app for free.
This one’s more of a game than an app, but the app releases were sparse this week so it made its way over from our Top Games list. Quizboard is an interesting quiz game that lets you compete against others to see who’s got the biggest brain. What makes this one different is the fact that you’ll move across a gameboard as you correctly answer questions and you can even block your opponents’ path. It’s a very interesting game, and it’s free to download on Google Play.
