5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly


Welcome back to Android Apps Weekly! Here are your big headlines from the last week:

  • Telltale Games is chugging right along as they picked up yet another popular IP to turn into one of their now-iconic episodic adventures. This time around, they’re making a Batman game. If their prior efforts are any indication, this game will likely be really good and true to the story of Batman. The game is expected to be released in 2016.
  • Google Play has released their picks for the best apps and games of 2015. It’s a pretty standard list and a lot of them may only be there because of their popularity or their close ties to Google. In either case, there are no real bad eggs on the list and we encourage you to check them out!
  • The Room 1 and 2 are among the best and most interesting puzzle games ever to land on Android. As it turns out, the developers have been fervently working on The Room 3 and that should be out Monday, January 11th, 2016. Needless to say, this app guy will be buying that on day one because it’s probably going to be awesome.
  • Google has released a new type of advertisement that allows people to play-test games in the advertisement without actually downloading the game. The hope is that the player will enjoy the experience and download the game after trying the in-ad demo. On paper, it seems really awesome but you know people are when it comes to advertisements.
  • Google has announced that by the end of January, they will have completely absorbed Songza into Google Play Music. As a result, the Songza service will be shutting down permanently. There is a silver lining as Google will be helping Songza users migrate over to Google Play Music to continue using those features.

For even more Android apps and games headlines, updates, and new releases, don’t forget to check out this week’s Android Apps Weekly newsletter. There you’ll find all the stuff we didn’t have the time or space for here today.

lego ninjago Android Apps WeeklyLEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin

[Price: $4.99]
LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin is a new action-adventure game from the popular LEGO franchise that has you playing as a group of ninjas who have lost their memories. Your job is to get those memories back and then defeat the evil Ronin to save the day. It’s a fun little game to play and, as with most LEGO games, it’s about as kid friendly as this subject matter can be. It’s also a pay once game with no in-app purchases!
Get it now on Google Play!


linkedin Android Apps WeeklyLinkedIn

[Price: Free]
We don’t normally do app updates in this section anymore but LinkedIn made such a huge change to their app that it’s worth talking about. Especially when the app was as bad as LinkedIn’s used to be. The new design features sprinkles of Material Design and it also appears to take some design cues from Facebook. The app centers around the core functions of the service and it’s so much easier getting around. If you haven’t checked out LinkedIn in a while, it’s worth a shot now.

rayman adventures Android Apps WeeklyRayman Adventures

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Rayman Adventures is the latest adventure-platformer game out of the once iconic Rayman franchise. This one features a bit more exploration than prior titles and the point will be to collect all of the Incrediballs. Interestingly, Ubisoft is going with a Freemium pricing model which is in stark contrast to the pay-once games that didn’t have in-app purchases. It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out, but so far the user reactions have been positive.

storehouse Android Apps WeeklyStorehouse

[Price: Free]
Storehouse is a unique photo sharing application that creates a kind of webpage with up to 50 of your photos for easy sharing. The basic idea as far as I can tell is that it lets you create a collection of photos which it then arranges on a webpage type of layout. You can then send that link to your friends who can then view it on their mobile devices or on the computer if they so choose. It’s fun to use and it’s totally free with no in-app purchases.

cardboard camera Android Apps WeeklyCardboard Camera

[Price: Free]
Last and certainly not least this week is Cardboard Camera. This app is meant to be used in conjuction with Google Cardboard and it helps you create VR photographs. In other words, it lets you take photos that are meant to be viewed in complete VR. The app works surprisingly well and some of the stuff you can create with this is really awesome. It’s completely free to download and use and is now another great reason to grab at least a Google Cardboard device.

Storehouse comes to the Android platform with latest release


storehouse_app_icon

Storehouse is an app designed to help users share photos and videos by creating a web page to share a collage, album or tell a story. The idea is to make the presentation of images a little bit richer and have a little more context than the simple sharing available through most methods and platforms. The problem with the app up until now is that it was not available for Android users. Developer Storehouse Media changed that this week with the release of the Android version of the Storehouse app.

When creating a page, users can select photos and videos from their camera roll, which the app will then use to automatically generate the page. Storehouse gives users the ability to add up to 50 photos or videos. If a user happens to not be happy with the automatically generated layout, they can do things like resize content using handles on the items or drag and drop them to a new location. Storehouse also lets users add text to the page.

Once a page is ready to be shared, and they are kept private until a user is ready, Storehouse can provide a link that can be sent by SMS or Email. Storehouse also gives users the ability to embed their creations on blogs or share them through social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Users can even setup shared spaces so friends can contribute content.

You can get Storehouse from the Play Store using the download link below.

The Omate Rise is a tough, circular, 3G-connected smartwatch running Android


Omate Rise

Omate is no stranger to producing wearables on the cheap, and that’s very apparent by the company’s lineup of smartwatches and other connected accessories. The Omate TrueSmart saw some pretty wide success over the years, only to be succeeded by the TrueSmart+, which launched back in September. Now Omate is launching another smartwatch that seems to fit right in to the company’s product portfolio.

The Omate Rise is a tough, circular, 3G-connected smartwatch running Android (not Android Wear). It sports a 1.3-inch touchscreen TFT display with 360 x 360 resolution, a strong sapphire coating on the display to protect from bumps and bruises, and supports interchangeable 22mm straps. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Omate’s OUI 4.0 on top, and can be paired with any Android 4.3+ device or an iPhone running iOS 9. Powering this smartwatch is a dual-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT2601 processor backed by 512MB of RAM. It also has 4GB of on-board storage, a 580mAh battery, and 1 ATM water-resistance.

This is a 3G-connected wearable, so you can connect it to any GSM network of your choosing. It takes a Micro SIM card, and supports 3G bands 2100 or 1900, as well as 2G bands 850, 900, 1800 and 1900.

Want to get your hands on one? Not so fast – the Omate Rise will only be available for 48 hours on Indiegogo beginning Monday, December 7th. Super Early Birds (folks who take advantage of the pre-sale) will be able to score the smartwatch for only $199 instead of the $349 retail price. Early backers will also get a free Bluetooth heart rate monitor chest belt with their order.

If you’d like to learn more about the Omate Rise, check out the company’s website for all the details.

Chrome for Android slims down the internet when speeds are slow


If you’ve ever been stuck with slow mobile internet and just wanted to read an article, Google has some mighty good news. It’s about to release a new feature to its Chrome for Android Data Saver mode that will only display text when it senses a slow network. Once a page loads, you can then show all images (above) or specific ones by tapping on them. Google says that the new trick will use up to 70 percent less mobile data on Android devices.
