5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week – Android Apps Weekly!

Welcome to the 176th episode of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • It was announced this week that the team behind the intensely popular Alto’s Adventure is coming out with a skateboarding game called Skate City. Based on the footage, it’ll be a 2D runner with 3D graphics. It also appears as though you’ll be able to perform tricks. The game should be out sometime in 2017 and it’ll be one of the better free-to-play games if Alto’s Adventure was any indication.
  • Google is currently fighting a new set of ads that automatically download apps. Google removed a few thousand of these “self-clicking” ads in 2015, and then had to remove over 23,000 in 2016. That’s a pretty clear indication that the problem is getting worse. The report went on to show that Google removed 1.7 billion bad ads in 2016. It’s a fight that’ll take some time to fix, but at least we know about it.
  • An interesting piece of ransomware made its way to the Play Store. The app would open, ask for permissions to your contacts and SMS messages, and then give you a message that the info was up for ransom. As you can imagine, it wasn’t a great experience. Thankfully, the app is no longer available. It goes to show that some trouble can still appear in the Play Store. However, these occurrences are still exceedingly rare.
  • As it turns out, VPNs on Android really need to step up their game. A research study came out this week that shows a lot of VPNs aren’t doing a great job. To give you an idea of how bad it is, 18% of VPNs don’t encrypt traffic whatsoever, 84% leak traffic, and most of them use third-party tracking. Considering that people use VPNs to avoid literally all of those things, this is highly disappointing.
  • Google’s Daydream platform is now open season for app developers. That means it won’t just be the select partners that can release apps anymore. There will be an approval process for Daydream apps to make sure they are up to Google’s standards. That should help keep the experience consistent between apps. This should also increase the overall selection quite a bit.

Latest game from Flappy Bird creator now available in Play Store

Touch Arcade

Ninja Spinki Challenges!! is the latest game from Dong Nguyen, the man behind the viral sensation, Flappy Bird. And now it’s available for download in the Play Store. While it’s not exactly the same as Flappy Bird, if you’re up for a fun challenge, this might just be what you need.

15 best free Android games of 2017!

4 weeks ago

Nguyen has worked with Obokaidem, a Japanese publisher, to bring Ninja Spinki Challenges!!. Once the game starts, you will be taken to a set of challenges. You will need to do one of them in order to unlock an “endless” mode. For instance, in the first challenge, you simple have to swipe left or right in order to avoid being hit by an incoming obstacle. Spinki moves extremely fast, so take advantage of that. The goal is to not die until the timer goes all the way down to zero; once you finish the challenge, the endless mode is unlocked where the goal is to gain as many stars as possible.

There are six challenges per level, and there are five levels. So essentially you have 30 mini-games you can play. The first few are very straightforward (but nerve-racking nonetheless), but as you progress, it becomes more frustratingly difficult. The good news is, however, just like Flappy Bird, none of these challenges are complex. Each game is explained at the beginning, and all you’re doing is tapping or swiping on your screen.

The good news is, however, just like Flappy Bird, none of these challenges are complex.

One annoying thing that I noticed though is that when you die and you want to continue without retrying entirely, you do have to watch ad videos. And those videos can be pretty long. Other than that, it looks like the latest game from Nguyen is completely free. So if you’re looking to kill some time this weekend, click the button below to download Ninja Spinki Challenges!! from the Play Store!

15 best Android fitness apps and workout appsIngress

[Price: Free]
Say what? Yes, Ingress can actually be a fairly effective game for getting back into shape.

You can engage in the classic game where you must roam around and “hack portals” for your allegiance. There is also a Missions feature that lets you go on missions (and create them) which are essentially complex scavenger hunts. No matter which way you play, it involves getting out of the house and walking/biking around and eventually it’ll help you get into better shape!

15 best local multiplayer games for Android


Playing video games with other people is the best way to play video games. You get to share in the excitement, challenge your friends, and have fun together.

A lot of Android games depend on a mobile data connection.

Square Enix has been back and forth when it comes to online DRM checking, but you can play a few Final Fantasy games offline provided that you’ve logged into them at least once with an Internet connection. Final Fantasy games offer more than 20 hours of game play per title along with deep story lines, various types of character development, and more. They’re not the most exciting games, but fans of the series generally play them for their stories. The cost varies per game, but they’re all pretty decent.

The muted, smokey colors and unique mechanics give this a wholly different feel from similar games in the genre.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 172nd edition Android Apps Weekly! Also, Happy New Year! Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • Square Enix has put a ton of its games on sale. This is great news because their games are usually expensive. On the block are seven Dragon Quest games, most of their Final Fantasy titles, Chrono Trigger, Adventures of Mana, Secret of Mana, Chaos Rings III, and Romancing SaGa 2. Most of these are great games and faithful ports from the original.
  • Snapchat purchased an Israeli startup called Cimagine. The price was between $30 million and $40 million. The popular opinion is that Snapchat plans on delving further into the augmented reality space and this company is going to help them do it. For those who don’t know, Cimagine is a company that lets companies show how their products look in the real world with virtual devices.
  • We released our official lists for the best Android apps, best Android games, and most controversial apps and games. Our pick for the best Android app was Chrooma Keyboard. The best game was Crashlands. Finally, the most controversial app or game was Pokemon Go. The lists are live on Android Authority and on YouTube if you want to see the all of the selections yourself.
  • Nintendo has officially put up Super Mario Run on Android for pre-registration. That means the game’s release is fairly imminent. It had a good run in its first week on iOS, although things are cooling off now. You’ll also get a notification when the game is out to the public. We’re all but certain that it will be out before the end of January 2017.
  • While we’re on the topic, it turns out that Super Mario Run is having problems getting people to pay. A report this week showed that only about 1-2% of those who downloaded the game actually bought it. It has also been free-falling through the charts as the game’s hot release starts to cool down. At this point, let’s just wait and see what happens when it comes to Android.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 170th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • Google Allo limped over the ten million installations mark this week. It’s a number to be proud of, but we all know that Allo has had a cold reception from almost everyone. That makes the ten million mark seem both impressive and a little sad. The app has been getting better and we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before things pick up a little more. As it stands, these things are marathons and not sprints, so it’s still too early to call this a success or failure.
  • Evernote has updated their privacy policy and everyone’s pretty mad about it. The policy will give a small number of Evernote employees the ability to view your notes. According to the CEO, this is so the machine learning features that will be implemented soon can work properly. Thankfully, the company will give users the option to opt out of this if they want to. The change will take place in late January so keep your eyes peeled if you use Evernote.
  • Okay, so get this. Someone actually went and spent $1 million on a freemium game. The guy who did it actually stole the money from the job he was working. He then turned around and blew a million of it on a game called Game of War. He also spent money on plastic surgery and season tickets to the San Francisco 49ers. As you can imagine, the man has been arrested. This also no doubt helped Game of War’s bottom line quite a bit.
  • Google released their top regular search trends for 2016. As you can imagine, it sums up the year pretty well. You see the expected results like Hillary Clinton and Trump along with Prince, the Olympics, David Bowie, and Pokemon Go. The very top of the list was Powerball, which was worth a mind-bending $1.56 billion back in January. Apparently, everyone wanted to see how that turned out.
  • Super Mario Run was released on iOS this last week. There are tons of game play videos on YouTube now if you want to check that out. It’s had a fairly polarizing reception so far with some praising the mobile-centric game play while others wish it adhered to older Mario mechanics. In either case, you can get it on iTunes now. Nintendo is going to release the game on Android. However, they have been a little quiet on when that will happen for right now.

The bad news is that the app is suffering from some release bugs which include playback errors. The UX probably could use a little work as well. Still, it does work most of the time so it’s worth a shot if you have Daydream.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 169th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • Niantic and Starbucks have announced a collaboration. Over the course of the coming weeks, 7800 Starbucks locations will be turned into either a Gym or a PokeStop. This comes just a couple of weeks after a similar Sprint deal that saw 10000 stores join the ranks of PokeStops or Gyms. Additionally, Starbucks will be selling a Pokemon Go Frappuccino. This is just in time for the massive December update that promises more Pokemon along with more features.
  • Pandora has finally announced a relative release date for their Pandora Premium service. For those who don’t know, the service is going be much like Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, and others. It’ll have on-demand access to a larger music library, playlists, and more. It’ll still have some features of the original app. Pandora is launching the service sometime in early 2017. We don’t know how much it’ll cost, but we’re guessing it’ll be the standard $9.99 like most services.
  • Google Play is reportedly testing a new and separate apps and games section in the Google Play Store. Currently, both are in the same spot in the Play Store. Earlier this year, Google started removing the games from the app section of the top charts. This seems to be a natural continuation of that effort. We don’t know if it’s rolling out to everyone or if it’s just an A/B test, but it would be really nice if it did.
  • A while back, Sony teased that they could be getting into the mobile gaming fray. This week, they officially announced that they are working on ten mobile games. ForwardWorks will be developing and releasing all ten games. That is a company that Sony set up specifically to make mobile games based on PlayStation IP. The release date is set for 2017 for all ten games. In a surprise twist, Square Enix will also be collaborating on a game with Sony next year as well.
  • Google has officially opened up Google Home for app development. The platform should allow developers to integrate new voice commands into their apps to make it compatible with Home. A few developers are already working on it, including Yahoo, Dominos, CNBC, and others. Google will also be adding in additional features over time. Some examples are the ability to purchase things or book things like airplane flights.i
