A week has passed which means we had enough time to compile a nice list with some of the best new Android apps and games that have been recently released on the Play Store. We managed to find some pretty decent ones the past week, as well, so have a look to see such popular games as Shadow Ninja 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and new apps like Facetune, F-Secure Freedome and others. But now let’s have a look at the latest ones.
Amazon Wallet (Free)
The Amazon Wallet app is still in Beta but you can already use it to store your gift cards, loyalty and rewards cards, and your membership cards. With the app, you can easily redeem them to pay in store or pay online. You can scan your plastic gift cards, loyalty cards, and membership cards and also take pictures of each of your cards with your built-in camera. It’s also possible to organize your cards into categories.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout ($6.99)
Without any doubt, the much awaited Modern Combat 5: Blackout game for Android users is one of the best action titles on the Play Store. Inside the game, you will be able to create a squad and play along with your friends. You can choose from 4 customizable classes and four different play styles, as well – Assault, Heavy, Recon, or Sniper. The multiplayer mode is perhaps the game’s strongest point as it comes with epic team clashes in Squad vs. Squad matches and the ability to talk to other players in Global and Squad Chat.
NPR One (Free)
By using the new NPR One app for Android devices, you can connect to a stream of curated public radio news and stories right from your smartphone or tablet. The app comes with ‘great storytelling and rigorous reporting that informs, engages, inspires and surprises’. When listening to a certain story, you can pause, skip ahead, rewind or share a story with friends. It’s also possible to search for your favorite shows, stations and podcasts and it also comes with international, national, regional and local content.
Thomas was Alone ($5.99)
Thomas Was Alone is an indie puzzle platformer video game which was originally released as a Flash-based browser game in 2010.

Batman Arkham Origins
Batman is my favorite superhero and I’m sure millions out there will say the same thing. Batman Arkham Origins is the latest Batman-themed Android game from Warner Bros and it comes with a range of special features, such as exclusive Batsuit skins, cross-platform unlocks and Facebook integration. The game’s description sounds like this: ‘Prove your worth as Gotham’s Dark Knight, facing off against a slew of deadly assassins and their thugs in the new mobile game, Batman Arkham Origins. Fight your way through Gotham City’s most dangerous locales in this free to play brawler from NetherRealm Studios’
Blood Bowl ($5.99)
Blood Bowl is one unusual game that will definitely attract dozens of Android players in the near future. This is basically an adaptation of the famous Warhammer Fantasy football board game where you get to assemble your team from among six races in the Warhammer universe – Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves and Chaos. Each race comes with its own strengths, weaknesses and numerous opportunities. There’s a Solo Player mode but also a Multiplayer one where you can compete against a friend on your tablet in “Hotseat” mode.
Atlas Web Browser (Free)
There’s definitely not a shortage of web browsers on the Play Store, but Atlas does come with some interesting features. You can use AdBlockPlus filters to remove web annoyances, advertising, and tracking; the “Control Panel” slide-out feature to control site behavior; dual-view mode and a content-centric user interface. It also puts a big focus on privacy features, having a sandboxed Private Browsing and the option to disable automatic search and suggestions from the location ba.
Microsoft Account (Free)
Microsoft is showing an increased interest for its users from other platforms, such as iOS and Android. That’s why it has released the standalone Microsoft Account app that you can use to verify your identity. Thus, you will no longer need to enter security codes from text messages or authenticator apps as you’ll get a notification when you need to verify your identity. Just make sure you’ve turned on two-step verification for your account.
