It’s been ten years since Android was announced and what a decade it’s been. There’s never been a better time to jump on board as the Google Play store has exploded in recent years. With a proliferation of apps that can cater to your every need, the number of apps in the Google Play Store grew to around 2.6 million in March 2018. The list below is just scraping the tip of the iceberg of the Android apps available on your Play Store.
App developers are pushing the envelope on a daily basis trying to improve and enhance our smartphone and tablet experiences. In fact, so many Android apps come out every day that it’s difficult to keep track of them all. It’s difficult to usurp the best of the best but if you’re getting bored with what you’ve got and want to try something new, check out this neat list of Android apps listed below.
Creating high-quality tech videos for our YouTube channel? Are you a struggling influencer trying to find your voice? Unquestionably, creating videos can be fun and amusing but there’s this thing that challenges our anchors — remembering the script. At times, when there’s a derailment in your train of thought, you turn to the usual solution of retakes. On the bright side, you get tons of footage for bloopers (which are an absolute delight to watch) but when it comes to shooting with a video camera, you have a saviour in a teleprompter.
But the situation narrows down dramatically while recording with phones and you are left with no option but to memorise the complicated script. Oh, the horror of it.
Worry not, Android apps offers a saviour lurking in the Play Store.
A quick search on Google can lead you to an app called Selvi – Teleprompter Camera, which has brought the teleprompter concept into the smartphone.
Are you constantly worried you’ll run into online spoilers regarding your favourite movies or TV shows? Then, Spoilers Blocker is for you. The in-development app allows you to, as you might assume, enter movies and TV shows that you don’t want to see spoilers of, after which the app will block certain text that might contain keywords related to spoilers. It won’t be as effective as avoiding related content altogether but it may help in case you unwillingly stumble across something.
Envision AI is part of a new branch of accessibility Android apps for the visually impaired. It acts as a set of eyes for the blind. All you need to is point your phone at an object and the app will tell you what it’s looking at. The app’s developers boast of functionality in places like supermarkets, restaurants, and around the home. It can even recognize friends after a proper setup.
Many reviews on the Google Play store indicate that the app works very well – despite being one that is relatively new. It’s completely free with no in-app purchases or advertising.
Blog Compass is a brand new app from the rich suite of Android apps and is currently in beta stage. This app helps bloggers manage their sites and find topics to write about based on Google’s trending topics. It shows stats about their website, important metrics about their readership, and it even gives ideas for bloggers to write about. You can also approve comments and read tips on how to make your blog more successful – all in one convenient app!
Additionally, the app is compatible with Blogger and WordPress blogs along with some self-hosted setups. It’s completely free right now and it has an easy user interface.
