Fleksy had a big week. They managed to break their own Guinness Book of World Records speed record and to celebrate, they have permanently lowered the price of their app to $1.99. If you’ve been on the fence about buying Fleksy, this is the perfect time to do it but remember that they do have a free trial version so you can see if you like it first.
The Hunt is a community-driven fashion app that allows you to snap pictures of various outfits, upload them to The Hunt, and other people who use the platform will help you identify what those items are, how much they cost, and where you can buy them. Their demo video sucks but the app itself can be quite handy for those who fashionably minded and it’s totally free.
[Price: Free with in app purchases]
SwiftKey Keyboard got a huge update this last week that helps fix a number of performance issues and lag problems. They have also added some new languages. On top of all of that, they also released a Material Design keyboard theme pack for $2.99 so if you want the Material goodness but want it on a different keyboard, this is the way to go.
Nokia’s highly anticipated Z Launcher is out on beta in the Google Play Store now. It’s received a slew of bad reviews because of an activation thing that they did. The launcher itself is very simple and relies very heavily on gesture controls. It’s not ready for prime time yet but if you want to check it out, it is free with no in app purchases.
