It’s the beginning of another new month, and we are ready with a whole batch of free and new Android apps for you. As a ritual, this month’s list also has apps spread across various categories. So whether you need a nifty app vault to hide apps or a new customization app for your Android smartphone, we have everything covered.
So, if you want to kick-start the month of May with a bang, here are some new Android apps that you must get.
As the post is going to be a lengthy one, let’s get started, shall we?
1. SNAP SEARCH: INCOGNITO BROWSER & SECURE SEARCH
Do you find it cumbersome to open Chrome’s incognito mode every time you want to search for something that you don’t want Chrome to remember? What do you do when you have to search something specifically on YouTube but you do not want related content on your timeline? Normally, you’d have to take a pretty long route. But not anymore with Snap Search in the picture.
This simple app has an always-on incognito mode. And the best thing is that the search engine is not just reserved for Google alone. It has a horde of search engines such as Yahoo, Duck Duck Go, Baidu, etc.
Moreover, you can also search in incognito mode on YouTube and IMDb, among others. Overall, it has more than 40 search engines. Cool, right?
2. CALCULATOR LOCK
What if you could hide some of your pictures and documents under a simple-looking app? Sounds exciting, right? Well, the Calculator Lock is exactly that.
If you have some files to hide and don’t want to store them under a conventional locking app, the Calculator app is the one for you. And the best thing is that it appears to be a simple calculator at first glance.
3. VOLUME STYLES
Volume Styles is the perfect app for phone customization lovers. As its name implies, it brings home several cool volume bar designs to your Android smartphone.
4. DOLBY ON
If you often record audio natively on your phone, you must know how the audio quality can be spoiled by background noise. As you may already know, it’s quite a task to remove background noise, especially if you do not have access to tools like Sony Vegas or Adobe Audition. But at the end of the day, these tools are more suited for a professional video editor.
So, if you are looking for a phone app for the job, say hello to Dolby On.
Dolby On automatically reduces background noise significantly. When you start a recording, the app listens for the background noise for the first three minutes and then removes them when you finish recording. Yeah, you read that right.
5. FACEBOOK GAMING
If you still have the Facebook app on your phone and have time to kill, you should certainly try out the Facebook Gaming app. It lets you play games and watch others playing games from around the world. And well, you can also join others to form a game group.
6. DOCUMENT SCANNER
Next on our list is the Document Scanner by TopTapStudio. It’s quite a simple app and if you do not have apps like Microsoft Office Lens and Adobe Scan on your Android, you can give this app a try.
The rules are pretty straightforward. Tap on the camera icon on the landing page to grab an image. Once done, the app will give you the option to adjust the borders of the layout manually.
7. CLYMA WEATHER
Last but not least, we have a weather app. Aptly named Clyma, this one is for you if you are bored with the stock app on your smartphone.
It includes a “feels like” temperature, minimum and maximum temperatures for the day, precipitation, humidity, cloud cover, and so many other little details. Furthermore, it’s well-designed and comes with a clean interface (save for the small banner ad at the bottom). Best of all, it includes a detailed 7-day forecast.
HELLO, GREAT APPS!
With many of us staying indoors these days, it more important than ever that your phone gets its share of new android apps to add to the interesting quotient. After all, you can’t just pass your time browsing through Twitter and Facebook.
I particularly liked Volume Styles and Snap Search. Plus, the games on Facebook gaming are quite interesting to start with.
