Angry Birds Stella best Android apps
Angry Birds Stella

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
First up this month is Angry Birds Stella. Yes, I know Angry Birds isn’t the world’s most favorite franchise anymore but the game is still fairly decent. There are over 120 levels, it’s bright and colorful, and it’s great to keep your kids busy on a long car ride. It’s free to play with in app purchases and that makes it a good deal even if it is another Angry Birds game.

beach buggy android apps
Beach Buggy Racing

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Beach Buggy Racing is the latest racing game out of Vector Unit and it’s pretty good. It’s a lighthearted kart-style racing game where you can pick up power ups, race through a bunch of tracks, and do other race like things. It’s free to play with in app purchases and Vector Unit does really well with their games so this is worth checking out.

complete ear trainer android apps
Complete Ear Trainer

[Price: Free demo / $2.99]
Complete Ear Trainer is a music app that teaches musicians how to listen to music and know what notes are being played. It’s fairly comprehensive and it works kind of like a reference guide mixed with a video game. The design is top notch and it really is one of the best instructional music apps we’ve ever seen. You can demo the app for free.

Dragon Quest Android apps
Dragon Quest

[Price: $2.99]
Dragon Quest was originally released by Squaresoft back when it was still called Squaresoft back in 1986. Fans of retro games and fans of jRPGs should have a good with this one. It has remastered artwork and the controls have been updated for mobile titles. It’s also fairly cheap for a Square Enix game because it only costs $2.99.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team android apps
FIFA 15 Ultimate Team

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
FIFA 15 was released earlier this month. It’s an upgrade to the insanely popular FIFA 14. It comes with improved graphics, more players, and more teams. It’s free to play with in app purchases much like the prior title. The game play is pretty much as good as you’re going to get for a mobile sports game and outside of some early server issues, people seem to be enjoying it.

flynx browser android apps
Flynx Browser (beta)

[Price: Free]
Flynx Browser is a new app that is in beta right now. If you’ve ever used or heard of Link Bubble, you essentially know how this works. You click on links and they open in little bubbles and you can do whatever you want and come back to the bubble to view the link later. It’s currently totally free which is a good price but it is in beta so beware of bugs.

Goat Simulator Android apps
Goat Simulator

[Price: $4.99]
Goat Simulator was released earlier this month to positive reviews. In this game you sling, slide, and otherwise goof around as a goat as you simulate its life. It’s a hilarious game where the developers actually keep bugs around if they’re funny enough but they are still fixing at least the ones that make the game not work. You can be a goat and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Hangouts Dialar android apps
Hangouts Dialer

[Price: Free]
Hangouts Dialer reminds us that earlier this month, your Hangouts app can now make phone calls and that Google Voice was integrated into it. This app is actually fairly useless because it just opens up the dialer section of Google Hangouts. Even so, it’s a nice little shortcut to the new feature that you can use instead of your regular phone dialer icon if you so choose.

horizon android apps
Horizon

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Horizon is a camera application that always shoots in horizontal mode. This is great because vertical videos have always been terrible and this app keeps that from happening. It’s pretty unique and it uses the gyroscope of the device to keep your shot level even as your phone turns. It’s free with in app purchases so why not?

Month android apps
Month: The Calendar Widget

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Month is a calendar widget application that allows you to create, you guessed it, calendar widgets. Its claim to fame is its massive theme selection. The free version doesn’t come with all that many themes but you can buy more at your leisure as in app purchases similar to SwiftKey. The widgets look really nice and you can find a theme to match yours most of the time. The actual calendar app is a little minimal but gets the job done. This is great for casual users but hardcore users may want to find something more feature rich.

star wars commander android apps
Star Wars: Commander

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
If you like Clash of Clans but wished it has more Star Wars then Star Wars Commander is for you. It’s a lot of the same kind of stuff. You build a base with walls and defenses and then you defend against attacks and launch attacks of your own. There are a few unique game features here that you don’t get in Clash of Clans. It’s free and it’s Star Wars and that means it’s worth checking out.

Topeka android apps
Topeka

[Price: Free]
Topeka is a new quiz game that came out this last month. As a quiz game it’s pretty average but the real story here is the design. It was released by Chrome Apps for Mobile and it’s actually an HMTL game that’s been converted for Android and uses the latest Material Design. It’s pretty fun and it looks really good so check it out.

watch over me android apps
Watch Over Me

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Watch Over Me is our last item this month and it’s pretty useful. This is a GPS app that will alert your loved ones if you don’t do something at a certain time. Let’s say you go for a run and you tell the app that you’ll be back in 30 minutes. If you don’t disarm it in 30 minutes, the app sends your last known GPS coordinates to your emergency contact and lets them know you didn’t check in. This is great for anyone who lives in a bad neighborhood or anyone who has health issues.
