5 Android apps you can't miss this week - [Google Play Weekly - Sochi 2014 edition]
It's time for the Sochi 2014 and we have a nice choice of Android apps to help you follow it. Also, we talk about the news from around the app world!
February 7, 2014
As always it’s been an exciting week in the Google Play Store. To start, the Chrome SDK has finally been made public so app developers have been fervently working to get their app to support Chrome. This includes AllCast by Koush, which gets the Chrome support back after losing it last summer. The long awaited Pebble App Store is now available on Android, albeit only in beta form. Popular XDA developer Chainfire has released an app that changes your MAC address so governments can’t track you. We took a closer look at the mega popular browser EverythingMe and decided that it was actually pretty good. Lastly, we saw some potential Galaxy S5 app leaks including S Health and S Voice. Since the Winter Olympics start today, our five Android apps that you can’t miss are apps that anyone who wants to follow the Sochi Olympics should check out!
For those wondering, WOW doesn’t actually mean the term that expresses awe, but stands for Wireless Olympic Works. With this app, people
can keep up with what’s going on in the Olympics. One nifty feature is an explanation of what each event is and how to play that particular sport which is kind of nifty. Even though it’s branded by Samsung, our comment section has confirmed it does work with non-Samsung devices.
theScore updated their application specifically for the Olympic events which means there are a lot of fun and useful features for those who want to keep track. This includes a medal alert function that sends you notifications when medals are won, up to the minute news, and separate sections for men and women
as well as hockey because this is a Canadian news source. It’s free and it’ll have good coverage plus it has good coverage of other sports year round, so it’s a good option.
