Welcome to the 287th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:


Lightbeam

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Lightbeam lets you share your screen with other Android devices. It basically turns any app into a collaborative experience without a lot of hassle. You basically connect to other Lightbeam users and they see what's happening on your screen or vice versa. It's a bit of a niche app and we can't think of any widespread use you would need out of this. However, it worked fairly well in our testing, although it could use some stability improvements. It's early days still, but this one shows a lot of promise.

Grand Mountain Adventure

Price: Free / $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Grand Mountain Adventure is a new skiing game for Android. It features surprisingly gorgeous graphics, simple controls, and very satisfying game mechanics. It's an open world game and that means no missions, no closed off areas, and no specific quests. You simply ski through the wilderness. Players also encounter stuff like deer, bears, and other NPC skiers and snowboarders along with potentially lethal avalanches. It has a lower graphic mode for low spec devices so most phones should play this well.

Holey Light

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Holey Light is the latest app from Chainfire, developer of many amazing things and also Hidey Hole. This is another app specifically for the Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10 Plus. It lets you turn your punch hole cutout into a notification light. It's a little barebones right now and only works while plugged in or with the screen on. The feature to use it on battery with the screen off is still in the works. Still, this is such an obviously good idea for S10 owners that we had to write about it. It may be useful now, but it'll be way better in a few updates when all of the features are working properly. Until then, it's in beta and it's also entirely free.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades

Price: Freemium
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a new action RPG in the Elder Scrolls universe. Players can create a character from basically any race in the franchise. In addition, players quest for various materials, level up their characters, and rebuild a town that was ransacked by a real jerk queen. Bethesda actually opened up the Early Access Beta version to everybody with no invites or waiting needed. Thus, you can download the app and play it right now. Keep in mind this game is not done yet and all progress rolls over to the full game when it launches. Have fun!

Spark Email

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Spark Email jumped at the opportunity to launch during Inbox by Gmail's shutdown. It's a good move and, thankfully, the app itself is pretty good too. The app has a bunch of desirable features, including a snooze function, a send later function, reminders, various customization options, email pinning, smart searches, and a smart prioritization tool. It supports most current email clients like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, and many others. It's also entirely free. Google Play reviews complain of a few bugs here and there, but nothing that looks overly serious to us.
