Welcome back to another Google Play Weekly! Here are the headlines this week:

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


HTC Camera Android apps
HTC Camera

[Price: Free]
First up is HTC Camera. HTC has been systematically putting their proprietary apps on the Google Play Store for faster updating and it’s a practice that should be applauded. Unfortunately, only HTC devices can get it so if you don’t have one, you can’t get this.

A Better Camera Android apps
A Better Camera

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
A Better Camera is a solid camera app that offers some desirable features. It tries to mimic a DSLR camera experience by giving you control over things like White Balance and ISO and even allows for HDR video recording on devices running Android 4.3 and up. It’s a solid option if you’re looking for a camera app and there are some fun features if your device supports them.

civilization revolution 2 Android apps and games
Civilization Revolution 2

[Price: $14.99]
Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 was released on Android this last week and its a great strategy game if you like those. It features a bunch of new content including new civilizations, leaders, units, technology, and more. It is having some release day hiccups much like Grand Theft Auto San Andreas did so you may want to wait a week or two before buying it. It’s a little expensive but there are no in app purchases.

Google Messenger Android apps
Messenger

[Price: Free]
Messenger is Google’s official text messaging app that was released alongside the Nexus 6. It’s available for Android devices running 4.1 and up and includes Material Design and some management features like easy search, the ability to block SMS senders, audio messages, and emoji support. It’s free with no in app purchases if you’re looking for a new text messaging app.

monument valley Android apps
Monument Valley

[Price: $3.99 with in app purchases]
Monument Valley is going to be getting an expansion to its already highly rated experience sometime soon. The game is brilliantly designed around optical illusions and geometry and we assume the new levels that are coming are done up the same way. The expansion is available on iOS right now and will be available on Android soon so if you’re interested, make sure you pick it up now. The expansion will be paid but it’s no big deal.
