Unclouded was updated to version 2.0 this last week and with it came a number of changes. It now has Material Design, sports a dark theme for premium users, and has support for Microsoft OneDrive and Box.com. There were also the standard bug fixes and performance improvements and remains the best way to manage multiple cloud storage services in one app.
SoundCloud received a pretty substantial update this last week. With it came some design tweaks to make it more Lollipop friendly along with Lollipop notification support, better Facebook integration, French translation, and some bug fixes and performance improvements. It’s worth noting that it’s not full on Material Design but it still looks really good.
Lego Bionicle is a tap-to-play hack-and-slash game where you play as one of six heroes as you beat the snot out of a bunch of robotic bad guys. The graphics are decent and the game play is simple but that makes sense because it is a game geared toward kids. It may be a bit repetitive for adults but it’s free with no in app purchases which helps make up for it.
SnoopSnitch is a crowd-sourced and open source security app that analyzes mobile radio data to make sure that you’re mobile data isn’t being tracked or jacked by hackers or other people aiming to do you ill will. This app comes with a cornucopia of restrictions. You’ll need to be rooted, not running a custom ROM, and have a device with a Qualcomm chipset.
Last up this week is Bitcoin Wallet. It’s one of the premiere apps for Bitcoin users and it received a pretty substantial update this last week. It now comes with more Material Design along with some under-the-hood security enhancements along with the ability to send and receive Bitcoins. You can also buy Bitcoins which is a nice touch if you need that.
