Welcome back to Google Play Weekly! This week’s headlines are:

And now here are five Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week!

Republique Android apps

[Price: $2.99 with in app purchases]
First up this week is République. It’s a stealth action game that comes with amazing graphics, a dark and entertaining story line, and three episodes of content to play through with more planned in the future. It uses the Walking Dead style where it adds content to the game in the form episodes, each of which you must buy. So far it’s garnered positive reviews and $2.99 really isn’t that bad.

Inbox by Gmail

[Price: Free (invite only)]
Inbox by Gmail has already made quite the splash and it’s still in the invite-only stage that most Google apps go through before being released to the public. It’s Google’s latest take on email and so far it’s had some pretty polarizing reviews. Some think it’s great and others thing it’s too busy and complicated. We did a quick hands on so you can judge for yourself and that’s linked below.

ES Chromecast plugin

[Price: Free]
ES File Manager now has Chromecast support but you’ll have to download this plugin in order to do it. It is free in the Google Play Store and it does essentially it says it does. Once you download and install the plugin, you’ll have the Chromecast option in the actual ES File Explorer app and you can cast videos and photos. If you use ES File Explorer, you should also have this.

nhl 2k android apps

[Price: $7.99 with in app purchases]
NHL 2K is out now and it’s probably the best hockey you can get on Android. It is a little pricey and having in app purchases on top of the $8 price tag is probably a bit much but sports games do tend to lag behind the competition when it comes to mobile gaming. In any case, there are plenty of game modes, accurate rosters, and some old style arcade style game play. It’s really nice to see major publishers taking Android seriously.

[Price: $2.99]
Last up this week is djay which is a very, very popular DJ application over on iOS that’s finally made its Android debut. It has a lot of features that allow you to alter and mix songs at your leisure and it comes with Spotify integration. It seems to be generally well liked but the more hardcore users seem to wish it had more features. In any case, $2.99 isn’t that much and it does look like a lot of fun.
