5 Android apps you shouldn't miss this week - Google Play Weekly
- CyanogenMod released their camera app to the Google Play Store but it’s a CM11s exclusive.
- Microsoft seems to be working on a keyboard for Android Wear devices.
- A developer has gotten Fallout 1 and 2 running on Android…Then another developer named Corbin Davenport got it running on Android Wear.
- Corbin also got Gameboy Color games running on Android Wear. Did we mention that this is the same guy who got Windows 95 running on Android Wear last week?
And now here are five Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week!
[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Ready Contact List has been out for a couple of weeks but it seems to be growing in popularity by the moment. It’s a contact and dialer app that fuses card UI and a little Material Design which makes the app look really good. There is also a number of features you can get that you don’t see in regular contacts apps. It’s free to use with in app purchases.
NotifWidget a unique application that allows you to check your notifications almost anywhere. It comes with a home screen widget and a lock screen widget that allow you to check and dismiss notifications. There is also DayDream support so you can check and dismiss notifications without waking up your device from DayDream mode. It’s just over a buck which is a good price. If you’re interested, check it out!
Camera51 is a newer camera app and it’s aimed at people who are not very good at photography. The app uses a proprietary engine to help you aim your camera where it needs to be aimed to get everything you should need in a photo. This is also fairly useful for people who take selfies. It’s totally free with no in app purchases. If you’re pretty bad with a camera, you should try this.
[Price: Free / $2.49]
SuperSU got a huge update this last week to prepare itself for a lot of exciting stuff that’s coming up including Android L and Android TV. There is, of course, a huge list of other things including bug fixes, performance improvements, and architecture specific binaries for all version of Android. It also has Amazon App Store support now which is always good news.
A while back, the original Dragon Quest was re-released on Android by Square Enix and we figured it was only a matter of time before they started porting more. As per the norm, people who are huge fans of Square Enix games, jRPGs in general, or retro graphics will probably get a kick out of this. It takes place 100 years after the end of the first Dragon Quest so you should probably play that one first. It’s $5 in the Google Play Store which isn’t bad because this game is pretty long.
