10 best new Android apps and games from January 2015

Posted by wicked January - 28 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


We’re nearing the end of the first month of 2015 and a lot has happened. CES 2015 showed us some new tech and everyone’s looking forward to the next few months as new phones and products are announced and launched. There were also some great apps and games released. Here are the best new Android apps and games from January 2015.


adobe lightroom mobile best new android appsAdobe Lightroom Mobile

[Price: Free (requires Creative Cloud subscription)]
First up this month is Adobe Lightroom Mobile. This is a mobile version of the popular Lightroom app that lets you edit, organize, and otherwise manage your photos and other images. There have been some issues including compatibility issues with newer smartphones and space issues. However, if you can get passed that, this is a powerful photo editor that can be used in tandem with the desktop version assuming you use and pay for a Creative Cloud subscription.

Asana best new android appsAsana

[Price: Free]
Asana is a task management platform aimed at teams of people who need to get work done. Technically, this app has existed for a while but it essentially a wrapper for the mobile site and it was pitifully awful. It’s now a native Android app with Material Design and it’s way better. There are still some issues here and there but this is a big step forward and an app to keep an eye on.

camu best new Android apps and gamesCamu

[Price: Free / $2.31]
Camu is a popular photo editing app that was very popular on iOS and has finally made its way to Android. It features the ability to shoot videos and photos with live effects applied, collages, text, various effects, super focus, and auto-enhance mode. It’s free with in app purchases but, believe it or not, the in app purchases aren’t that bad.

crossy road best new Android apps and gamesCrossy Road

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Crossy Road was about as big a hit as any app could be on the Amazon Appstore and eventually saw its release on Google Play. It’s kind of like Frogger in that you’re a chicken who must cross many, many roads. The graphics aren’t great but the game play is surprisingly fun. There is no story or anything ridiculous but it’s a solid and difficult time waster that costs nothing to download.

dragon quest v best new Android apps and gamesDragon Quest V

[Price: $14.99]
Square Enix continues to re-release their old collection of games here in 2015 and first up this year is Dragon Quest 5. Much like others in the series, the game is played entirely in portrait mode which is unique. It also features full camera control, monster catching, AI battles for easier level grinding, and more. It’s a tad expensive at $14.99 but at least there are no in app purchases.

facebook lite best new Android apps and gamesFacebook Lite

[Price: Free]
Facebook Lite was developed for those who use budget phones. It’s optimized for 2G internet and its less-is-more design is great for weaker processors. Unfortunately, you can only officially get it from the Play Store if you have a terrible phone. It’s less than 1MB and includes the core Facebook functionality without any of the frills. If your device isn’t compatible in the Play Store, you can pick up the APK to sideload here.

google classroom best new Android apps and gamesGoogle Classroom

[Price: Free]
Google Classroom is a classroom environment that allows teachers and parents to help students learn by creating a virtual classroom environment. It was only available as a web app for a long time but is now available on Android and iOS. It allows students to take and upload pictures to Classroom, interact with the platform, chat with students live, and more.
Get it on Google Play


Lego Bionicle best new Android appsLego Bionicle

[Price: Free]
Lego Bionicle is a hack and slash style game where you must pick your Lego hero and kill a bunch of bad guys. The graphics and controls are actually pretty good even if the story line is a tad shallow. It is totally free to play with no in app purchases which is a rarity and thanks to its mild nature, it’s a great game for kids.

Lego Bionicle best new Android apps


libreoffice viewer beta best new android appsLibreOffice Viewer

[Price: Free]
LibreOffice Viewer is a document viewing app released in beta this last month. It is in beta so if you find bugs, it would be better to report them than to give the app a bad review because it is a beta. Aside from the beta related issues, the app seems to be progressing nicely and even hit the 4 out of 5 star rating on Google Play recently. It’s also nice to see official LibreOffice on Android, even if it’s just a viewer.

manual camera best new Android apps and gamesManual Camera

[Price: $1.99]
Last on our list this month is Manual Camera. This app takes full advantage of the Camera2 API in Lollipop so, as you can probably guess, this app is only for people who use Lollipop. It lets you adjust things like shutter speed, focus distance, ISO, white balance, and exposure compensation. The compatible device list is pretty slim so read the description before downloading!

Hotspot Shield update brings three new VPN protection modes

Posted by wicked January - 28 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

hotspotshield

Hotspot Shield is one of the apps on our best VPN list, and it has an update rolling out today that will make it even better. Hotspot Shield version 3.0 is available now, free from the Google Play Store.

Version 3.0 brings on board three new protection modes to Hotspot Shield. The new Selected Sites, Smart Protection and Full Protection modes prove that the app is not just your run of the mill VPN tunnel. They want to do more than just let you watch BBC shows, or access your Gmail when travelling to certain countries of the world.

While the app is free to install and offers some functionality from the get go, the majority of top features will require in-app payments at a small monthly fee to unlock. Considering the extra security benefits of Hotspot Shield, it would be good to at least check out the app before shrugging it off for its costs.

Hotspot Shield v3 update

Looking at those new features, the Selected Sites tool, as the name implies, allows you to control your VPN usage and settings on a per-site basis. Not a bad start. Smart Protection offers up automated controls for the new settings, including the ability to select which settings should operate over which wireless access point you access. Full Protection mode is pretty simple to explain, you gain full security coverage for all actions on your device.

One of the best parts is that Hotspot Shield can be setup to run at boot, turn off when your device goes to sleep, and ultimately run autonomously. This means that you do not need to worry about starting and stopping your VPN on the fly, just go about your day and know that you are secure.

If you are liking what you are hearing, go ahead and grab your copy of Hotspot Shield from the Google Play Store and see for yourself what the extra features have to offer. If you need a few pointers on how to put the tool to use, head over to their how-to pages.

Are you a fan of Hotspot Shield, willing to give it a go now that it has these new features or is it still too expensive for your needs?

Meet the Devs – Minisaur

Developer Interview - Minisaur
Welcome back to our Meet the Devs segment! In this piece we take a little time to get to know the people who really make Android what it is today and that is the app developers. In this week’s developer interview, we are talking to Matthew Mario Negri of Minisaur.

Name: Mario Negri

Developer Name: Minisaur

Country: Italy

Website: Official Facebook page

Social Media Profile/Page: Google+

How many people on your team? 3

bruce wheels icon Developer Interview - Minisaur

Apps

Bruce Wheels

About your company?

Minisaur is a small group of 3 really good friends. We are all from Milan (Italy) and have the same great passion for videogames. The 2 designers of the team both studied Design & Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Milan, where they got to know each other and discovered their common interest. The last year of their studies they decided to create their first game and asked me to be the key part of the team. :) Before working with Gianni and Riccardo I was a freelance software developer for many big italian and european companies and studios. Minisaur was my chance to finally focus on something I really love.

What level of experience do you have with coding and development?

I’ve worked for 6 years as a web developer and recently started to develop apps for Android. To develop Bruce Wheels and Java Android apps I use Eclipse. I have some experience with visual studio to develop .net applications, while for web I’ve been mainly using notepad++, ultraedit and sublime text.

What languages do you know? How and where did you learn them?

The first language I learned was Amiga Basic, thanks to my father’s lessons when I was only 12 years old :) To develop Bruce Wheels I used Java, which I first learned back in Highschool. I’m extremely well versed with python, asp 3.0, php and c# and familiar with visual basic 6 and c ansi. The book I recently really loved to read is “Pragmatic Programmer”, which really teached me the correct way to act and think as a programmer.

What level of experience do you have with design?

0, zero. All the design is done by my brother Riccardo and my friend Gianni :) They are awesome! They do their job using mainly Adobe Illustrator and Spine, a great program for 2d animations which we chose to support since its Kickstarter.

bruce wheels minisaur developer interview

What apps have you made?

Bruce Wheels is our first big app. We put all our passion to develop and design it the way we wanted it to be. We strongly believe in this project, which took us way too much time :) We worked on it for 2 years in our little spare time between work, university and other annoying IRL stuff.

How do you monetize your apps?

For Bruce Wheels we chose a freemium model. The game is free to download, while the complete version without ads is unlocked with an in-app purchase. We want people to try our game before purchasing it and we thought that this was the best way to do it as a new indie company.

Do you consider yourself successful?

I created something I love, together with 2 of my best friends. Within the span of 2 years, we all acquired in depth technical knowledge in building and designing a great Android game. Yes we consider ourselves successful. :)

How difficult is it to make money as a developer?

As an indie developer it is really difficult. With the Android market beeing flooded with all kinds of trash apps coming out every second, games developed with passion and love are simply not noticed without marketing and advertisement.
bruce wheels minisaur developer interview

What can Android do to improve?

Android is used on so many devices, it is really difficult to get a game running well on all of them. There could also be a spotlight on a choice of new indie releases in their main page on the Google Play Store.

Why did you choose Android? Do you develop for other platforms? What are the differences between them?

We picked Android mainly for one reason: it was the type of device we all had when we started. We have never been the biggest Apple fans and love Android becouse it is open source and costumizable. I’ve never tried to develop anything for iOS or Windows Phone yet, but I may do an iOS version of Bruce Wheels soon™.

What do you think of the Android design guidelines?

Early on, there weren’t any guidelines and it was really hard to design a consistent user experience without the help of good UI designers. Now they are really well designed and simple but there’s not that much yet that could be applied to games.
bruce wheels minisaur developer interview

What are your favorite apps?

My favourite games for Android are Cannabalt, Rayman Jungle Run and Doodle Jump. I really love to use Whatsapp, Dropbox, Sketchbook Mobile, Waze, Tasker and Wunderlist on a daily basis.

What has been your experience been like working with Google?

Google is really fast to solve problems and to give feedback to opened tickets. The play console once had a problem with my app and they were really kind to immediately contact me and get it fixed.

What tips do you have for aspiring developers?

Be passionate about what you do. Passion drives creativity. It is passion that keeps you working on something you love for hours on end. It’s what eats away at your nights and weekends, completely destroying your social life.


Developer interview wrap up

We want to thank Mario for chatting with us in this week’s developer interview! If you’re a developer and this looks like something you’d like to do, check out our Meet the Devs form! We look forward to hearing from you!

HTC One M8 GPE removed from store, leaves future unknown

Posted by wicked January - 22 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

We’ve seen Google Play Edition devices come and go from Play Store, usually in order to pave way for newer models. Today, the HTC One M8 GPE silently left the Play Store shelves just as had others before it. But this removal is quite noteworthy because of what it could imply. With the One M8 GPE’s exit, there are no more Google Play Edition devices left on Play Store, leaving only the Nexus line to hold the fort and calling into question the survival of the GPE idea.

If some consider Nexus smartphones and tablets to be niche, the GPE models are even more so. They straddle the very thin line that separates regular OEM devices from Nexus ones. Their primary purpose was to offer the same juicy hardware as manufacturer flagships but with a vanilla Android experience, without the OEM or carrier bloat. Sounds reasonable enough, except probably when you factor in profits.

LG revealed before how Nexus devices, though hot items, aren’t exactly big money makers. We can imagine that GPEs fare even less. Especially with the large and mature modding community on Android, even closed devices are easy work. Perhaps there isn’t just enough incentive anymore for a Nexus-like open experience on a flagship device as there was a few years back. And without incentive or market demand, there is likely not enough money to continue making such devices.

So was the HTC One M8 really the last GPE device? At this point, it’s still unclear without an official statement from Google. In the past, older GPE devices would be removed to make way for new ones, and we are expecting some new ones to be announced in a month or so. We will most likely hear more about this developing situation as we slowly trek the road to MWC 2015 in March.

QualityTime for Android tracks your smartphone usage time

Posted by wicked January - 21 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

With more and more people trying to break away from being forever stuck with their mobile phones, new apps to help people overcome smartphone addiction are coming out. One such app is QualityTime, another tool launched today which hopes to make you more aware of the time you spend face-to-face with your device.

This cool new app tracks your usage habits – everything from time spent on apps to the number of times you access your phone. The data it collects helps paint you a picture of how much you use your phone throughout a specific week. The longer QualityTime spends collecting data after installation, the more data will be available for you – such as the day you use your device the most, drilling down into what apps you use at particular times during the day. Pretty cool.

quality_time_1

If you’re trying to control how much you use any particular app and boost your productivity, you can even set QualityTime to warn you that you’ve reached the boundaries you set for yourself. There’s also a cool “take a break” mode – this locks you out of certain apps for certain periods of time that you select. Of course, you can exclude pre-approved apps just in case there’s an emergency.

So this looks like a cool tool to help you be aware of just how long you are on your phone – just in case you’re one of those people who are still unaware of the huge amount of time we spend on our mobile devices. Download it via the Google Play Store below.

Gameloft brings Dungeon Hunter 5, pre-register now for rewards

Posted by wicked January - 21 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Top-rated developer Gameloft has announced the fifth installment of the Dungeon Hunter series is currently in the works, but this early, followers of the game, as well as new users, can pre-register at the game’s micro-site (see source link below) to qualify for in-game rewards that can come in handy once the game launches officially.

Although Dungeon Hunter 5 is still under development, Gameloft has so far revealed that this version of the widely-popular game carries vast improvements with regard to graphics, gameplay, and user interface. Through its Developer Diary videos both on YouTube and the micro-site, Gameloft is saying that DH5 features a new multiplayer aspect, along with a “fusion” feature that allows the player to level up weapons and gear along with their primary character. The multiplayer element is especially interesting, as it allows players to create their own bases, or more appropriately called “dungeons,” and fill it up with characters or minions that they can use to raid other players’ dungeons for gold or to defend the player’s own. The cherry on top here is that at the end of each raid, one is forced to confront the user’s primary character, making it the boss opponent.

The storyline for Dungeon Hunter 5 is essentially a carry-over from the fourth installment, where the player now deals with the consequences of the events in DH4. In the aftermath of the demon invasion, the fictional kingdom of Valenthia has splintered, leaving everyone to fend for themselves. Users are no longer soldiers of war but now play as bounty hunters who must band together to survive against the demon onslaught. A typical player must obtain gold (which serves as the in-story currency to buy weapons and stuff, as well as someone else’s allegiance), gems (to unlock rare items), and fusion boosters that can be used to upgrade one’s own avatar together with its gear to make for a more formidable in-game character.

Players are encouraged to sign up now to receive in-game rewards when Dungeon Hunter 5 finally rolls out. Early registrants, however, are encouraged to promote the game even further, as Gameloft reveals the more the game is shared on social media, more rewards will be unlocked for players. So if you’re looking for some rare in-game sword or bow, it might be a good idea to visit the DH5 micro-site now and start sharing to your comrades.

12 best Android card games

Posted by wicked January - 21 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

best Android card games
Card games are a fantastic form of entertainment. They work anywhere and everywhere, they’re small enough to fit into a bag for travel, and there are so many different kinds of card games. With our smartphones always on us, we can also play card games on mobile as a way to pass the time or goof around with friends. On this list, we’ll look at the best Android card games.

It’s important to note that there are two distinct kinds of card games. There are fantasy card games like Magic: The Gathering and the regular card games using the 52-card deck that we all know and love. On this list, we’ll include both of those types of games. Also don’t forget that many entries on this list hold more than one game, so there are vastly more than just 12 games total. Enjoy!


6 Takes best android card games6 Takes

[Price: $1.99]
6 Takes is a game inspired by famed board-game creator Wolfgang Kramer. The idea of the game is that each player must avoid getting cards. When cards are dealt, players are assigned points based on how many bullheads are on each card. The player with the least number of bullheads at the end wins. It requires some strategy as well as luck like any good card game. It’s also great for kids and you can play against the CPU or there’s a local multiplayer mode where you can play with friends on the same device.
Get it on Google Play


AI Factory Limited best Android card gamesAI Factory Limited collection

[Price: Varies]
AI Factory Limited is a developer on the Google Play Store who has released a ton of card and board games on Android. These include standalone versions of Gin Rummy, Euchre, Hearts, Spades, and Solitaire. There are also some non card games like Chess, Checkers, and Sudoku. Pretty much all of them are pretty good and most of them were updated in the last year so the developers are still working hard on these. If you click the button, we’ll take you to the AI Factory Limited page on Google Play so you can see their entire collection.

ascension best android card gamesAscension

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Ascension is a fantasy card game where you must build a deck and battle against other players. There are 50 cards in total but those cards can do a vast number of things. It’s also worth mentioning that an expansion called Realms Unraveled was released very recently which adds to the total number of cards. There is online multiplayer support that is also cross platform so you can face foes on Android or iOS and you can play against AI opponents as well. It’s a good looking card game that has only gotten better in recent updates.

cardshark best android card gamesCardShark

[Price: $2.99]
CardShark is one of the best regular card game apps available. It includes a huge number of games including Solitaire, Gin Rummy, Rummy, various forms of Poker, and even some more obscure games like Crazy Eights, Egyptian Rat Screw, and more. There are literally dozens of games and they’re presented on a simple interface. There are even different card deck styles so you can customize it to your likes. It hasn’t been updated in a while and that’s a shame, but for now this is the best if you want a lot of games in a single app.

deck heroes best Android card gamesDeck Heroes

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Deck Heroes is a fantasy card game with hundreds of cards you can get. The game play is of a similar style of Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone so those familiar with those kinds of rules should be able to pick this up pretty quickly. There is online multiplayer mode along with a campaign mode for offline play, and plenty of other things to do. It’s a solid card game with a little depth to it for those that want depth.

eradan arena best android card gamesEradan Arena

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Eradan Arena is a mix between a dice game and a card game. You choose five heroes from a deck of 120 and then in battle you throw dice to trigger their abilities. It’s a unique premise that combines multiple elements of tabletop gaming. There are a lot of strategies which helps keep the game fresh and heroes level up and unlock new abilities. Thanks to the randomness of the dice rolls, pretty much any match can go any way and that also helps keep things even.
Get it on Google Play


hearthstone best Android card gamesHearthstone Heroes of Warcraft

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Hearthstone is a long-anticipated card game that finally hit Android late in 2014. It’s a fantasy card game with hundreds of cards you can use to build your decks and you can play against people online or against AI characters if you prefer. The only downside is that the game is only available on tablets and phones with screens that are larger than 6-inches. There are ways around that, though, and we expect there to be a release for phones eventually.
Get it on Google Play


live holdem poker pro best android card gamesLive Holdem Poker Pro

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Sometimes people just want to play a good old fashioned game of Holdem and this app lets you do that. The game features extensive online play that includes a live chat, personal avatars, and the ability to quickly sign up with Facebook. We would’ve liked to have seen Google+ included as well. It features well over a million players and it’s a great way to play a classic card game with other people in a comfortable setting.
Get it on Google Play


magic 2015 best Android card gamesMagic 2015

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
When it comes to real life fantasy card games, there are few that can even approach the massive following and customization of Magic: The Gathering. We acknowledge that the video game versions aren’t nearly as good as the real life game, but they’re still really good card games. Magic 2015 features a number of pre-made decks that you can start with and unlock new cards and decks as you go. There are expansion packs, online multiplayer, a campaign mode, and plenty of other things to do. It’s a big finicky from time to time but overall it’s a good entry point for people interested in Magic: The Gathering.
Get it on Google Play


solitaire megapack best android card gamesSolitaire MegaPack

[Price: $2.99]
Solitaire is one of those games that we all played when we were younger because it was on Windows computers. Solitaire MegaPack features a wealth of Solitaire variants including FreeCell, Spider, 3 Towers, Clock, and Pyramid variants along with others. It has an easy-to-use interface, includes stats like fewest winning moves and longest win streak, and even allows for Samsung’s Multi-Window feature. It’s $2.99 but there are no in app purchases and no advertisements.
Get it on Google Play


star realms best android card gamesStar Realms

[Price: Free / $4.99]
Star Realms falls into the category of fantasy card game but with sci-fi and it was designed by a couple of the same people who worked on Ascension. Like most, it features online multiplayer so you can battle it out with other people and many cards so you can customize your decks. The free version features six campaign missions with the full version giving you an additional nine missions. It’s worth noting that online multiplayer mode is for full version players only while the free version acts mostly as an open ended trial.

world series of poker best android card gamesWorld Series of Poker

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
It’s a rarity when a name brand product like the WSoP makes a top list. Generally they’re sub par (read: Wipeout 2) but World Series of Poker managers to be pretty good. It features multiple variants of poker, online leaderboards, the ability to play with your friends through an invite system, and more poker fun. The in app purchases aren’t very good and, with patience, you can play without them but other than that, it’s a solid online poker experience.

WhatsApp begins crackdown on unlicensed 3rd party clients

Posted by wicked January - 21 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off
WhatsAppLogo

WhatsApp… that’s it. No Plus or MD or anything else is allowed or licensed by the company.

It’s a given fact that as something becomes more popular, there will be an endless number of “inspired” products that are eager to cash-in on said success story. There are any number of phones and clones. Apps are no different: a simple search for any random Twitter or Instagram user’s account will yield potentially dozens of “similar” services all of which try to make use of the original’s content. Popular texting/chatting omnibus program WhatsApp is no stranger to this, and the company is now taking action.

WhatsApp Plus users have recently been experiencing a 24-hour ban from the service, in no small part because WhatsApp Plus is in no way authorized or licensed by WhatsApp. Here’s the official word, straight from the horse’s mouth:

WhatsApp Plus is an application that was not developed by WhatsApp, nor is it authorized by WhatsApp. The developers of WhatsApp Plus have no relationship to WhatsApp, and we do not support WhatsApp Plus. Please be aware that WhatsApp Plus contains source code which WhatsApp cannot guarantee as safe and that your private information is potentially being passed to 3rd parties without your knowledge or authorization. Please uninstall your application and install an authorized version of WhatsApp from our website or Google Play. Then, you will be able to use WhatsApp.
Whatsapp Official Website (FAQs)

Given that the offending application requires side-loading to install (i.e. it’s not actually available on the Google Play Store), it might be safe to assume this issue isn’t affecting many users. It’s also hardly the only WhatsApp unofficial client for that matter, and indeed there are reports that other third-party app users have been experiencing trouble as well.

In many ways, WhatsApp’s warning about the unlicensed source code is a truly concerning one, and something that any person who goes around the “established” way need keep in mind: while some apps might offer extra features or content beyond the original product’s scope, few have the abilities needed to check for any kind of malicious programming embedded within it.

There’s no more hassle of lugging around heavy equipment or setting up stage before playing. The DJ app is now available to Android devices that operate on Android 4.4 KitKat and higher.

The DJ app has worked in various features making editing more simplistic. If you’re just picking up the lifestyle of creating music, this app could be what you’re looking for.
