August has come and gone and with it marks the beginning of the end of the season. It also left us with a bunch of awesome new Android apps and games! Let’s take a quick look at the best ones released this last month.


fallout shelter new Android Apps Weekly  Fallout Shelter

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Fallout Shelter turned a lot of heads when it was released on iOS back at E3 2015 and turned even more once it was released on Android. It’s a sim builder where you must create a Vault for survivors and help coax the new community into thriving. It comes packed with things to do including building rooms, exploring the wasteland, and even making babies. There is plenty of that classic Fallout quirkiness to make it feel authentic.

final fantasy portal app new Android Apps Weekly  Final Fantasy Portal App

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Fans of the Final Fantasy series got a new application this last month that lets them stay up to date on the latest Final Fantasy news. On top of that, the app also includes the Triple Triad card game from Final Fantasy VIII with an updated deck that allows you to collect characters from most games in the series. You can also play the original Final Fantasy right from the application. It’s about as good as it gets for a portal app.

FishBrain is an application developed specifically for those who like to go fishing. It’s a crowd sourced application which means other people using the app are the ones providing the data and you can see what fish are biting, where they’re being caught, and there is even a built-in competition where you can climb leaderboards in your favorite fishing spots. It’s a fun little app for anglers and it’s free to download.

Framed new Android Apps Weekly  Framed

[Price: $0.99]
Framed is a new puzzle game out of Noodlecake Studios and it is actually really fun. The premise is you have a bunch of movie panels that play short video clips. Your job is to arrange them in their logical order so that the right actions happen. If you do, you can advance and if not then you fail the level. It also comes with a decent soundtrack, plenty of game play, and a cheap price tag. It’s definitely a different kind of puzzle game.

Lara Croft GO Android Apps Weekly  Lara Croft GO

[Price: $4.99]
Lara Croft GO is a new puzzle game out of Square Enix where you raid abandoned ruins as the famous Lara Croft. It’s a board-game style puzzler where you must move around, solve puzzles, find hidden items, and kill bad guys to continue on to the next level. It’s beautifully designed, easy to play, and it does feel a bit like a Tomb Raider game. It’s a bit expensive for how short it is, but it is a very well executed game.

mirrativ best new android apps and games from august 2015  Mirrativ

[Price: Free]
Mirrativ is a brand new application that allows you to broadcast pretty much anything on your device to the world. Before, there were ways to do it with games and broadcasting your camera like Periscope. This allows you to stream anything on your phone and allows people to watch and comment. It’s a unique premise but it is in beta so expect some bugs. It’s also only usable by devices running Android 5.0 or higher.

Get it now on Google Play!

 


pac man 256 new Android Apps Weekly  Pac-Man 256

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Pac-Man 256 is an infinite runner version of the classic Pacman game. However, unlike most bastardizations where the infinite runner aspect makes the game feel hollow, Pac-Man 256 actually still feels like Pac-Man. You still deal with ghosts and you must eat pellets to increase your score, but now you have to do it fast enough to not die. It’s surprisingly good for a Freemium game and worth checking out.

Get it now on Google Play!

 


mozilla webmaker new Android Apps WeeklyWebmaker

[Price: Free]
Mozilla quietly released an application earlier this month called Webmaker. This nifty little application allows you to create web pages right from your device. You don’t need a lot of web design experience although from what I’ve seen, a little HTML and CSS knowledge certainly doesn’t hurt. The app is also open source which is always a good thing and comes with a variety of templates to play with. It’s also totally free.

Get it now on Google Play!

YouTube Gaming new Android Apps Weekly  YouTube Gaming

[Price: Free]
Last and certainly not least this month is YouTube Gaming. Google’s competitor to Twitch is now in the wild and the accompanying app is made to help people find the channels and games they want to watch. It’s a totally free application and it’s easy enough to use. It also comes with notifications to let you know when live streams are starting, chat rooms, and a lot more. It’s going to be fun and we’ll be there very soon.

13 best new Android apps and games from May of 2015

 

May 27, 2015


 
 
 
 

We’re reaching the end of May and a lot of exciting things are about to happen, including Google I/O which usually brings about a lot of big Android things. We’re heading into the lull of summer but there were still some amazing apps and games released this month. Let’s take a look at the best Android apps and games from May of 2015.


Bleep new Android Apps WeeklyBleep

[Price: Free]
Bleep is a free messaging service from, believe it or not, BitTorrent. The premise of the app is very simple, it stores all of the encryption keys and messages on your device instead of the cloud. This helps prevent hackers from intercepting and decoding your messages and gives you a very secure, private way of messaging other people. The interface is also pretty nice.

Broken Age new Android Apps WeeklyBroken Age

[Price: $9.99]
Broken Age is a game from Double Fine Productions that has you playing the stories of two teenagers and you can switch between their stories at will. The game includes gorgeous hand-drawn graphics and an all-star cast of voice actors including Elijah Wood, Jack Black, and many others. It’s a bit expensive at $9.99 but there are no in-app purchases and it’s a good looking game.

chrome dev channel new android appsChrome Dev

[Price: Free]
Chrome Dev is the developer channel release of the Google Chrome Browser. This is very popular with the tech nerd community because it gives you a glimpse of the latest features that could be coming to Google Chrome. If you like living on the bleeding edge of development, this app is for you but do beware that there will be bugs because this is essentially the Chrome Browser test bed.

GoatZ new android appsGoatZ

[Price: $4.99]
GoatZ is a parody of the popular DayZ game that is based on the popular Goat Simulator game. You play as a goat as you take out zombies, get hit by cars, and cause other, goat-related mayhem. The graphics are good and the game is buggy but it’s kind of meant to be. It’s pretty funny and there’s a lot to do. There are also no in-app purchases and plenty of zombies.

google io 2015 best new Android apps and gamesGoogle I/O 2015

[Price: Free]
This year’s Google I/O is fast approaching and those interested in keeping up will need the official Google I/O app in order to do it. The app is done completely in Material Design and features the ability to live stream sessions, see what’s going on, check events, and engage with the event. Everyone who is going will have this app but it’s still useful for everyone.

meerkat new android appsMeerkat

[Price: Free]
Meerkat is one of two new streaming applications out this month that allow you to live stream footage from your smartphone camera. Meerkat allows you to stream footage to your Twitter followers straight from your camera. People can only watch it live and video doesn’t get saved afterward. It’s a fun concept that’s already seen some controversy but it’s fun to play with.

mixradio new android apps weeklyMixRadio

[Price: Free]
MixRadio finally released an Android app this last month. The UK-based streaming service is kind of like Pandora in that you can subscribe to stations and listen to music. It also takes the music you listen to and tries to guess what kind of music you might like. It’s good for music discovery and radio-style streaming. It’s also free to use and it has a decent interface.

periscope best new Android apps and gamesPeriscope

[Price: Free]
Periscope is the other video streaming application that was released this month alongside Meerkat. Unlike Meerkat, Periscope allows for video replaying so people can watch your streams over and over. Otherwise, the concepts are pretty much the same. Both rely on Twitter integration and both stream live from your phone camera. Also like Meerkat, Periscope has already seen some controversy.

seabeard best new Android apps and gamesSeabeard

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Seabeard is a puzzle adventure game where you walk around, solving puzzles, and beating up bad guys. The graphics and design are reminiscent of a Nintendo game and there is quite a bit of stuff to do. The main premise is to build a trading empire and most missions revolve around that idea. It’s great for kids and adults, is free to play with in-app purchases, and it looks nice.

Snake Rewind new Android Apps WeeklySnake Rewind

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Snake Rewind is the long awaited spiritual sequel to the hit game Snake that we used to play on the mobile phones of old. The mechanics remain largely untouched and while some may not like the controls, I didn’t think they were that bad. The graphics are decent and the game is free to download. It’s a Snake game through and through and it’s a good burst of nostalgic joy.

It’ll even eventually recommend sketches the app thinks you might like.
