Going back to work after weekend is one of the worst feelings of all time. As I’ll have to go through this with you this monday I thought, why not cheer everyone up with a bunch of new awesome android apps to download ? Well, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Top Android apps of the week (let me know what you think in the comments section below) :
Elixir 2 :
Elixir is a comprehensive system info app for Android that also incorporates a ridiculous amount of extra functionality for power users. Essentially, it’s a software toolbox for Android that lets you view app and system info, sensor inputs, log data and create advanced, customizable widgets. As a general rule, if there’s a system function you want to access, or something you want to map to a button or widget, Elixir 2 will have you covered.
From Developer : Do you want to know everything about your device? Try Elixir 2 and its widgets! Elixir 2 is a system information application with highly configurable widgets.
New SMS Locker :
This app is just like your default SMS app. You can receive, store, read, and compose your messages within the app. What make this app special is that it has a security feature that prohibits anyone from reading your messages. Before you can access your inbox, you will need to enter your pattern code.
From Developer :
- Receiving all messages
- Allows to import messages from standard mailbox
- Pattern Lock Password (change)
- Send messages
- Forward messages
- Photo capture of the person who tries to break in with wrong password ( photo view, location, spin)
Simplicity is beautiful. If you have an eye for a simple, minimalist designed, easy-to-use, and friendly user interface, then you will most likely love the Lite.Browser app for your Android device. It is so light that the app is just only 187 kB. This app won’t surely clog up your Android device. If you don’t need the complicated options, swiping gestures, and all other gimmicks on your other browsers, then you should definitely try this browser.
From Developer :
one of the lightest browser
no address bar just a google search bar and one back button that’s on your phone and your fingertips thats all you need to navigate the web.
No clunky themes just a fullscree web experience
and all the good stuff like flash player and no Sneaky permissions
Komik Reader – Free :
I dig reading a lot of graphic novels, mangas and comics in general. Given those files often come in different formats I’ve been testing out which apps work best for reading them all without having to swap between apps. One I’ve found most useful is Komik Reader. It supports CBR, CBZ, and image directory support as well as allowing for thumbnails of added files. One of my personal favourite additions though is the widget that allows you to jump directly to your files from your home screen. It makes for easier access to reading.
From Developer : Komik is the first comic/manga viewer and collection manager designed specifically for Android tablets. We are currently rapidly developing Komik and would love to hear any suggestions from you.
Music Paradise Lite :
Set foot on the land full of musical notes and rhythm. Listen to your favorite songs online with Music Paradise Lite on your Android device. With this app, you don’t need to download and save music files on your Android device. You can listen to your favorite songs online with the app.
From Developer : New Lite version! Music Paradise Lite is a place to discover and listen to free music online! Listen to free music. Search and listen to free songs online. Search songs, artists, and albums & share them with your friends and family.
One of the causes of road accidents is using the phone while driving. It is always advised not to text or answer calls while driving. But, since we live in a very hectic environment, we are usually tempted to answer the phone or reply to our text messages. The DriveOFF app sees these driving hazards and promotes safety by killing all your notifications sounds while you are driving. It will also launch a background, blocking your view of your phone’s screen.
From Developer : Mobile devices are more of a distraction to motorists than a screaming child and feeling stressed. A single beep of a phone diverts motorists’ gaze away from the road four times longer (2.30 seconds vs. 0.48 seconds) compared to standard driving conditions even when unanswered.
XenoAmp BETA :
Brought to us by XDA Member ssuukk, XenoAmp brings together design elements from the Metro UI and Android’s magazine interface, laying album art all over what seems to be a freely scrollable, boundless background. The UI is all about using natural gestures to control playback, manage playlists, and browse through albums in a very elegant, unique, and beautiful interface.
From Developer : Why try another music player when you’ve seen them all, and you use a better one anyway? Well – you haven’t seen a music player like this. And believe me – mine’s much bigger than yours! Forget screenshots, watch it move!
Office Ringtones Professional :
One of the perks of having an Android phone is that it can be easily be customized. If you’re looking for an app that lets you choose a phone ringtone suitable for a corporate environment, you can try the Office Ringtones Professional app on your Android phone. This app is like a ringtone hub that lets you choose a variety of ringtones and set them on your Android phone.
From Developer : Professional office ringtones for corporate environments. Office Ringtones Professional app contains ringtone and notification sounds suitable for office and workplace. The best professional tones for official and corporate environments are chosen. App contains more than 50 elegant ringtones for you to choose from.
CloudVault Photo Uploader :
Weren’t you expecting an app of this kind? I was. Google Drive is a great cloud-based storage service since it’s associated with your Gmail account and makes the most of Google Docs, your office in the cloud. For this reason, make backups of your pictures and videos to storage them on Google Drive is a must. Do it isn’t too much complicated, however, it’s much better if an app makes it for us. That’s what CloudVault does.
From Developer : Instantly and automatically backup your Photos & Videos to your Google Drive™. Never worry about losing your media again!
Splashtop 2 HD :
Get remote access (via WiFi and 3G/4G) from your computer (Windows and Mac supported) to your tablet. You will be able to watch movies featuring full video and audio support. Likewise, you will be able to surf the web through your regular browser with Flash. What’s more, access any application or file on your computer (powerpoint, outlook…). You can even play games with high requirements! Take in account that what’s running the application is the desktop computer, and the tablet just displays it, and gives you the mobility you needed.
From Developer : Splashtop is the easiest and fastest remote desktop app to access your Windows or Mac from your Android tablet, anywhere, anytime! Get full access to ALL your applications (e.g. Office, Email, IE, Photoshop), PC games (e.g. Civ5, Diablo III), video (1080P), and documents on your computer over Wi-Fi or 3G/4G. It’ll be like having a computer on your tablet!
