We were pretty busy the previous week with the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but now we’re back to our usual working schedule. Which means our weekly roundup with the best new Android apps and games that have been released on the Play Store. So, let’s have a look at what are the newest goodies that you can download on your Android-powered smartphone or tablet.
YouTube Kids (Free)
The official YouTube Kids app has been launched on the Play Sore featuring popular children’s programming and other kid-friendly content from filmmakers, teachers, and creators. The app is really easy to navigate as it comes with big buttons, easy scrolling, and instant full-screen. Kids will be able to enjoy such productions as Sesame Street, Thomas & Friends, along with Mother Goose Club, TuTiTu, and Super Simple Songs, and much, much more.
Blood & Glory Immortals (Free)
Blood & Glory Immortals is a brand new game from known mobile game developer Glu Mobile. As the name suggests, and as you can see from the video, this is an action game where your mission is to ‘become a legendary hero and save the ancient world from vengeful Gods‘. You can choose from 3 RPG heroes to play – the Gladiator, Warlock or Barbaress. You will be able to explore the ancient Roman and Greek Empires and fight in amazing environments, battle unique enemies and experience beautiful effects.
Google AdWords (Free)
Google has finally made available its AdWords app available to Android users from all over the world. Thus, by using it, you can stay connected with your ad campaigns from anywhere. Advertisers can view their ads’ performance and have access to such details as campaign stats, the option to update bids and budgets and to get real-time alerts and notifications. You can also call a Google expert and act on suggestions to improve your campaigns.
Age of Sparta (Free)
Gameloft is known for its high-quality games and now they are announcing a brand new entry on the Play Store – strategy game Age of Sparta. If you have played games from this developer before, then you probably know how well they are designed. This strategy game comes with a unique and intense combat system. You fight against Xerxes and in order to defeat him you can ‘call upon Zeus’s thunderous might and Hades’ dark wrath to purge foes from the battlefield‘. The game features some really impressive animated combat scenes which are worth checking out.
You have probably made at least one PowerPoint presentation in your life, and if you were looking for fancier tools to create presentations, then you’ve probably stumbled across Prezi. The popular tool has now landed on the Play Store, as well, letting you access and view your entire online prezi collection, practice and rehearse, watch and present prezis remotely, easily share them and much more. However, you need to know that this is a companion app, and won’t actually allow you to create them from your smartphone or tablet.
AdVenture Capitalist (Free)
I have installed AdVenture Capitalist for a few days now and, unfortunately, become hooked to it. Eventually, you will too, and not because it will give you the feeling that you’re becoming the world’s wealthiest man, but because, actually, you will learn what other numbers are there after a trillion. Described as a capitalism simulator, it lets you start your own multi-national conglomerate from a lemonade stand to an oil corporation. Which reminds me that I need to check today’s earnings…
Back in October we were telling you about PhotoMath, a useful app that allows you to scan and solve math equations with your smartphone. At the time, it wasn’t available on the Play Store, but now you can get PhotoMath from Microblink completely for free. To use it, you just need to point your camera to a Math problem, and the app will instantly display the answer. At the moment, it supports basic arithmetics, fractions, decimal numbers, linear equations and several functions like logarithms.
Red Baron: War of Planes ($2.90)
If you like plane games, then you definitely need to check out the new Red Baron: War of Planes from Yaku Media. The game comes with impressive graphics and over 20 various dramatic missions in 2 game modes – arcade and simulator. You will be able to protect allies, chase down your targets, eliminate all opponents and survive the war. You can choose from 5 different warplanes – Halberstadt, AGO, Pfalz, Albatros CIII, Fokker Dr.I and you will be able to fly them to combat in 5 various weather conditions.
Jelly Jump (Free)
Jelly Jump from Ketchapp is one of those casual games that you play when commuting or just having to wait for something. However, this doesn’t make it bad, not at all. You can have a look at the above video to understand how it looks like. As ‘little jellies need you more than ever’ and ‘they keep drowning over and over again‘, your mission is to jump higher, survive longer and never give up. Go ahead and start collecting little jelly blobs and craft new jellies out of them and challenge your friends, as well.
Dark Echo ($1.99)
Described as a ‘brilliant, unique, and incredibly tense must-have masterpiece‘ or even as ‘one of the creepiest and most creative horror games‘. The players must use visualized sound to guide their way through threatening environments. Thus, the sounds you create will bounce off obstacles, revealing the shape of the surrounding world. Have a look at the video to understand more about it.
