It’s been a few weeks, but once again we’re back with the Top 10 New Android Apps of the Week. We got some great Android Apps over the past week including apps that help you work out, keep time, take pictures, and watch TV. Without further ado, we proudly present’s Top 10 New Android Apps of the Week May 17, 2012…

1. XFINITY TV Player

The XFINITY TV Player App from Comcast dropped over the weekend much to the chagrin of 1,000 of happy comcast customers including myself. The XFINITY Play app lets you watch everything you love while you’re on the go and so far it run likes a champ on my phone and tablet. If you’re a comcast subscriber this is an app you won’t want to miss, and you can pick it up for free on Google Play.

2. BookAND 3D Book Community

If you like books the BookAND 3D Book Community app is just the thing for you as it allows you to create your own virtual bookstore and show off your favorite titles for all the world to see. There are several different types of bookstores, plenty of decorations, and there’s even an add-on that lets you create your own 3D book models. You can check out TecAce’s BookAnd app for free on Google Play.

3. Songify

Songify is a fun little Android app from the fine folks of Smule makers of another app I enjoy called Magic Piano. Songify doesn’t let you tickle the ivories, but it will take your voice and “songify” it by automatically turning your speech into music. It’s one of those apps you just need to try for yourself; it’s a lot of fun to play around with and it’s also free!

4. Mimic Circus

If you enjoy android apps that let you have a little fun with your friends faces then you’ll get a kick out of Mimic Circus from United Fun Traders. Mimic Circus allows you to apply fun filters to your pictures; there are plenty of different options to choose from and everything is easy to use. You can check out the free (limited) version of the app or grab the full version of Mimic Circus for only $0.99.

5. Digital Flux Free LWP

Digital Flux is a slick new Live Wallpaper that uses pulsing metallic tiles as its backdrop. Not much to say here, except that it looks great and the full version gives you a few great extra options for $0.99. If you’re looking for a new LWP or want to spice up your background a bit head on over to Google Play and pick up D’Keesto’s Digital Flux Live Wallpaper.

6. Remember the Redbox!

As much as I love Redbox, I also hate it because the machines always seem to be broken when it rains and I can never remember to take anything back on time. Not much can be done about the first one, but Remember the Redbox! from Speki Software can handle the second issue. Remember the Redbox! is a configurable timer app that ensures that you’ll never get another late fee again. It’s still up to you to get in the car and take it back, but the app will at least pester you until you do. No free version of this one, but you can get the full version for $0.99.

7. PiraText

PiraText is a simple app that allows you to send AES encrypted texts to anyone in your contacts list without having to manually encrypt or decrypt anything. We’re not sure exactly how it works, but it does work well and if you’re looking for a bit of texting privacy you may want to check this one out. You can get Corgrimm Tech’s PiraText for free on Google Play.

8. TRONICA Retro Cyber Stopwatch

The TRONICA Retro Cyber Stopwatch is a sharp Tron themed digital stopwatch for you Android device. It’s simple to use, has a slick widget, and several different skins. I’ve been sporting this one for a few days and you can pick it up for yourself for free on Google Play.

9. Sworkit

Sworkit is an exercise app that provides randomized circuit training workouts to keep you motivated and in great shape.  You can target workouts for specific areas including Upper Body & Core; you can also set it up for some light stretching or Yoga sequences. It’s a nice app with a clean layout and it can be yours for the low price of free.

10. Grab radio

Grab Radio is an Android radio app that lets you “Grab” the best stations from over 30,000 local & global internet FM stations. You can tag songs, vote for your favorites, and even use the built-in shazam feature to find out the name of a popular tune. I haven’t tried this one out and there isn’t a free version, but you can pick up the Full version of Grab Radio for $3.27 of Google Play.
