The Top New Android Apps of the Week – October 28, 2012
As Sunday rolls around it’s time for another edition of our Top New Android Apps of the Week. This weeks list includes apps that help you remember important things, upload images to the cloud, and carve a few Halloween pumpkins…
The Great Pumpkin Festival puts you to work carving pumpkins and as the name implies it’s Peanut’s themed! You’ll get to carve pumpkins with a variety of tools, look at other people’s creations, and vote on the best pumpkin around. You’ll also get to create your very own Peanuts character from over 1-billion avatar & costume combinations. I haven’t counted to verify those insane numbers, but I will be giving the app a full write-up tomorrow if you’d like to learn more. The Great Pumpkin Festival is a lot of fun and it’s free to download on Google Play.
Microsoft’s Xbox Smartglass app is going to be a very, very popular app with Xbox 360 owners. The new app basically uses your Android device as a second screen which allows you to do some extremely cool things in conjunction with your 360. Unfortunately I’m a Ps3 kinda’ guy so I haven’t tested this one out, but it’s free to download if you’re a 360 owner and want to give it a go.
If you’ve ever uploaded an image online chances are you’ve used Imageshack at some point and time, and now they have an official app in the form of Skypath. Skypath lets you upload your images into the Imageshack “cloud” where you can access them at any time, and you’ll even get portable web links for use online. It’s simple to use and it’s free to download.
If you love movies First Day Fan is a great new Android app you’ll want to check out. First Day Fan lets you write quick movie reviews and browse users reviews instead of sponsored reviews from critics. All reviews are under 200 words, the app is easy to use and it’s free to download on Google Play.
There are a lot of apps that let you set reminders, but ReNotify takes a different approach to things. ReNotify is all about speed as it allows you to quickly leave a note and view or dismiss it from your notification tray. I’ve been using it for a few days and am happy to say it works like a charm and does exactly as advertised. You can check out Liam Lang’s ReNotify for free on Google Play.
If you are a fan of fonts, you’ll be a fan of Fontly. Fontly lets you browse interesting lettering from around the globe, and allows you take pictures of cool typography to upload on their feed, map, and website. It’s a little rough around the edges, but there’s some great stuff to be found and it’s a very cool concept.
