Another week has come to an end, which means we’re here with the usual roundup of the best new Android apps and games that have made it to the Play Store. As always, I invite you to check out the previous list and have a look at the new one meant at iOS users who are looking for some new apps and games to try out. So let’s have a look at what we’ve managed to put together for this week.
Adobe Photoshop Mix, Shape CC, Brush CC, Color CC (All Free)
Adobe has taken by storm the Google Play Store, releasing a bunch of new apps meant for creatives who are using Android smartphones and tablets. Adobe Photoshop Mix is a photography app which is meant to provide mobile users with a wide range of editing tools; Adobe Shape CC let you quickly capture and convert images into vector graphics; Adobe Brush CC turns your photos or graphics into high-quality brushes and Adobe Color CC provides you with sample colors to create themes you can use in Adobe desktop apps.
PBS Video (Free)
The new PBS Video app for Android users lets you watch the most popular programs from PBS, including Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece. There are thousands of full-length videos from your favorite PBS programs and local stations to enjoy inside the app. You can also save your favorite programs and watch them on Chromecast, as well.
LEGO Ninjago Tournament (Free)
Lego lovers now have another fresh Android game that they can play – LEGO Ninjago Tournament. Your mission will be to take part in the Master Chen’s Tournament of Elements where you will utilize your Ninja Training to unlock your True Potential, and defeat the other Elemental Masters. The game brings well known enemies from the Ninjago: Masters of Spinjtsu TV Series and will allow you to level up your characters and unlock new ones, such as Sensei Garmadon, Snike and Mindroid.
Kamcord is a new Android app which allows users to record and share videos of their gameplay sessions. You can also capture game audio and add funny voice-overs, as well. And if you want to, you can also pause and resume a recording when you leave and return to a game. Sure, this app isn’t the first of this kind, but give it a try and see whether it is better than its competitors.
Tiki Taka Soccer (Free)
Soccer lovers have quite a lot of games on the Play Store to feed their passion, but if are looking for yet another one, then perhaps Tiki Taka Soccer could be a worthy title. Coming from a new developer, the game lets you create a team, hire staff, choose your formation and buy the best players that you need to score as many victories as possible. It might seem like a ‘meh’ game when looking at the above gameplay, but your definition of it dramatically improves when you download and start playing it on your device.
Visual Dictionary (Free)
We’ve talked about the new Visual Dictionary app for Android users this past week. Coming from the British Council, the world’s largest English-language teaching organization, this new app lets you find the English name for any object you don’t know by taking a picture of it. After trying it out myself for a couple of times, I can confirm that it’s quite accurate and helpful in many situations.
Pirate Battles: Corsairs Bay (Free)
Pirate Battles: Corsairs Bay is a new Android game which lets you feel the thrill of being a pirate. Described as a turn-based, multiplayer strategy game, it comes with 4 types of battle, 6 types of pirate ship and more than 100 levels to play. You can also invite your Facebook contacts to play as friends or foes in an epic battle of the seas. Have a look at the above video to see more details from the gameplay.
Mozilla has released the official Webmaker app for Android users, which is the company’s official app for its open-source platform initiative with the same name. The app allows users to build original content like scrapbooks, photo galleries, memes, comic strips and more. Mozilla says that app comes with a unique and flexible design which ‘makes telling your story simple and intuitive’. Free, open-source and independent, the app is worth checking out.
Looking for Laika (Free)
Looking for Laika is a new Android game with a beautiful design which hopes to help you kill time and help you relax. The story of the game goes like this – ‘the aliens abducted your puppy Laika in this epic side-scrolling puzzle adventure and as Astronaut it is your duty to go and save your best friend.’ The app is really easy to play and lets you opt to beat the worldwide Hi-scores, or dive into the compelling story.
Monsieur Moustache (Free)
Monsieur Moustache is a new indie game for Android users coming from newcomer 4AM Games. Inside the game you play as Monsieur Moustache as you help him escape the flooding underground lab. Describe as an endless jumper game, the new title has a ‘very simple, yet addicting mechanic’ which makes it similar to Flappy Bird’s tap to fly gameplay.
