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

Welcome to the 173rd edition of Android Apps Weekly. Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • There are a metric ton of apps and games on sale right now. Google Play has a selection of apps going for up to 80% off and games going for 85% off. Alongside that, Amazon is having a large sale of its own for both apps and games. These are technically Christmas and New Years sales that are still going on. There are some excellent apps and games on sale if you’re looking for stuff on the cheap.
  • Google Play is also having a sale on a number of movies, TV shows, and books. Some of the movies include Star Trek Beyond, War Dogs, and The Legend of Tarzan. The books include Deadpool Classic, West With the Night, and Civil War. Finally, the TV shows include The Flash season three, Arrow season five, and Big Bang Theory season ten. Some of these are going for a pretty good price.
  • Square Enix is shutting down its Justice Monsters Five game on March 27th. It came out alongside Final Fantasy XV as a kind of promotional thing. It kind of helped build the hype around the game’s release. There has been no word on why the game is shutting down. Simply that Square Enix is sorry for the decision. To be honest, it wasn’t a great game overall. It has a few bugs and never really recovered.
  • Vine is officially shutting down on January 17th. We’ve talked about this social media network ad nauseum over the last two months and we’re nearing the end of the rope. On the mentioned date, the service will shut down. The app will turn into Vine Camera. You’ll be able to take the same old six second videos and post them on social media. Thankfully, all of this will be over soon.
  • It was announced this week that Google Assistant will start to be made available on set top boxes and smart TVs. Many of those devices are coming out in 2017. That also includes the new Nvidia Shield TV announced at CES. This puts into question how valuable the exclusivity of Google Assisant is on the Google Pixel, but otherwise it’s great news. It should also help bolster development for the platform by other app developers.

MoodCast Diary

[Price: Free / $2.99]
MoodCast Diary is an app that lets you keep a diary. The basic idea is that you tell the app how you’ve been doing over the course of every day. After each entry, the app determines whether the mood was positive or negative. The app can get it wrong sometimes but you can always change it. Over time, the app can tell you how your mood has changed over the lifetime of your usage with it. Pro users can link things like Twitter and Facebook to import your various status updates and tweets into the app. It’s unreleased, so there are bugs, but it’s pretty fun to use.

We did have to fiddle with it to get it working and some combos cause more problems than others. Thankfully, it’s completely free so it costs nothing if you want to try it.

Some issues include low framerates alongside the usual array of early release bugs. Capcom has responded to several user reviews stating that they’re looking into the issue. Thankfully, the ports are only about two bucks each with no in-app purchases.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for Android


Finding great wallpapers and backgrounds for your Android device isn’t all that difficult. There are a ton of apps out there that can do the task. On top of that, a simple Google image search can also show you some unique options. The trick is finding the apps that work best for you and finding the kind of stuff you want to see. Let’s take a quick look at the best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for Android!


10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidBackdrops

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Backdrops is an above average option if you’re looking for good wallpapers. It features a variety of styles along with some modern features. For instance, you’ll be able to sign in with your Google account to sync wallpapers across devices. It’s a good start for collecting some good wallpapers. The only caveat is that there is a pro version that comes with exclusive wallpapers, and then additional paid content on top of that for more wallpaper packs. It’s not inherently bad, but it can be frustrating if you don’t know it’s coming. It’s one of the better wallpaper apps and it’s worth a shot.

Backgrounds HD has been around for a long time and is one of the most popular wallpaper apps on this list. It’s considered good because it has a metric ton of wallpapers to choose from. Updates in 2015 and 2016 have modernized the design and 30 categories helps keep their massive collection in line. There are a variety of resolutions supported so you may have to wade through some lower quality images to find the really high quality stuff.

[Price: Free]
Cool Wallpapers HD is another one of the most popular wallpaper apps available on mobile. It boasts a staggering collection of 200,000 images that you can choose from. These are laid out in a variety of categories for easy surfing. You can also search for specific wallpapers by using tags or even searching by color. Like most, it also supports favorites so you can find your favorite wallpapers again. It’s a decent app that has definitely gotten better over the course of the last year. It’s also completely free.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidTapet

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Tapet is a (relatively) newer offering that’s quickly gaining popularity. This app doesn’t offer backgrounds like most wallpaper apps. Instead, this one will generate a wallpaper for you. Once you open the app, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of patterns and colors. The app will then create a wallpaper just for you. It also creates wallpapers based on your device’s screen resolution. That means it’ll be crisp which is what you’re looking for. There’s a free trial to check it out before it asks you to pay anything.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidTrue HD 4K Wallpapers

[Price: Free]
The name of this app is pretty lame, but thankfully it makes up for it by having a good selection of wallpapers. What makes this app special is that it will only show you wallpapers based on your screen resolution. Therefore, those with 1080p displays won’t see 540×960 images. If you’re rocking a 2K screen or greater, you won’t be bothered by lower resolution stuff. One of the more difficult things to do is find good 2K and 4K wallpapers since a lot of wallpaper apps don’t have that many yet. This gets the bric-a-brac out of the way so you can find those crispy wallpapers. It’s one of the best free wallpaper apps out there.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidWallpapers by Google

[Price: Free]
Wallpapers by Google is probably the most simple of all the wallpaper apps on this list. It shows a smaller selection of wallpapers, but they are all high resolution. You can access additional wallpapers using Google+, Google Earth, and other sources that Google calls “partners”. You also get additional features if your device is running Android 7.0 Nougat or higher. It’s not the most robust option on the list, but it is completely free and taps into some pretty good sources for wallpapers.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidWonderwall

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Wonderwall is one of the lesser-known wallpaper apps on Android. It doesn’t boast massive collections like Backgrounds HD or Cool Wallpapers, but the collection it does boast is hand picked by the developers. They’re mostly things like photography and abstract creations. All of the images are high resolution and should fit well on most screens. Some additional features include the ability to auto-set wallpapers on your device, submit your own photography to be featured in the app, and some other stuff. It’s also free to use with no advertising which is nice.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidZedge

[Price: Free]
Last on our list is the venerable Zedge. Zedge is probably the most popular app that offers ringtones, notification tones, alarm tones, and wallpapers. It has quite a large selection of all of those and we always manage to find some obscure stuff stashed in there somewhere. Wallpapers can be searched, sorted by category, and Zedge always has some that are picked out as featured when you open the app. The app isn’t perfect and features some of the more outrageous advertising we’ve seen. Their selections do include HD wallpapers and better, but there isn’t really a way to search to get rid of the lower resolution images. It’s a bit like the wild west, but it’s a good app for those looking around.

Get it now on Google Play!


10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidBonus: Google Search

[Price: Free]
Of course, if none of these apps work for you, then you can always turn to the venerable Google Search. There is a whole section for images there and you can search for backgrounds, wallpapers, and even add in variables to find the types that you want. Let’s face it, Google’s image search has more images than pretty much all of these apps combined which makes it a great option. The only issue is that downloading images can be a pain sometimes and you’ll have to set them manually each time. The best reason to use a Google Search is because you can search for resolutions (2K, 4K, 1920×1080, vertical wallpapers, horizontal wallpapers, etc) which helps filter out a lot of the nonsense that you might not want. It’s a good fallback plan if none of these apps have what you’re looking for!

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)


Icon packs have always been popular. Most mainstream, third party launchers support them and they provide a cheap and unique way to customize your device. When we first thought about doing this list, we thought about doing individual icon packs. Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), there are hundreds of amazing icon pack apps out there so instead, we decided to showcase the best icon pack developers. Each of them have multiple packs to choose from. Enjoy!


10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)Benas Dzimidas

[Price: Free / $1.39]
Benas Dzimidas is an icon pack developer with a lot of talent. The icon packs Benas is most known for include the Rondo icon pack, the Lai icon pack, and the Toca UI icon pack. Rondo is flat, round, and Material inspired and Toca UI is similar except they are rounded squares instead of round. Both are excellent options. The Lai pack are rectangular with muted colors and have over 2200 icons included. The icon packs also include wallpapers and some of them have Muzei support as well. It’s a good option if you want icon packs with simple designs.

The icons themselves are insanely highly rated and most present with a more sophisticated and minimal look than many others although you can find some fun designs among the various packs. GSeth does do some interesting ones though, like Rugo which is a crumpled paper and dirt style which looks awesome. To see GSeth’s collective work, click the Google Play button below.

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)Hooolm

Hooolm is an icon pack developer recommended to us by our readers and it turns out that Hooolm is a pretty good icon pack dev. Hooolm seems to enjoy doing glass-style icons and that’s most pronounced with the Smoke and Glass, Spatial Glass, and Tinted Glass icon packs. Unlike many, Hoolm doesn’t shy away from doing 3D icons, but still manages to keep them classy and sophisticated. They’re definitely worth a look.

Kovdev is a unique developer. S/he doesn’t have too many icon packs but it seems like whatever Kovdev releases gets put in the headlines. As one of the few devs that have had an icon pack go viral, you can imagine what kind of quality you’re looking at. The big ones by Kovdev are Nox, Domo, Stark, and Lumos. Nox is sharp and modern while Lumos is softer and muted and Domo is a marriage of complexity and simplicity. Stark is a newer icon pack that features hard squares and vibrant colors. All of them have nearly 2000 icons and there are others by Kovdev if you want to check them out.

Most of the icon packs have well over 1000 icons and we especially liked Samer’s Glass icon pack along with the Flatee icon pack. Many of the icons come in the form of theme packs so you’ll need a third party launcher like Apex or Nova but you usually need a launcher like that in order to use icon packs anyway!

Retrorika still follows the Material Design theme, but uses muted colors and retro color combinations to give your home screens a vintage look. The fl3D icon pack is unique in that it’s a 3D icon pack which is rare these days, but it looks sharp. The prices vary but most of them are either free or $0.99.

The best ones are Min, Minoir, and Redux. Min and Minoir are minimalist icons that keep things small and out of the way with the only difference being that Min is white while Minoir is black. Redux is in development (at the time of this writing), but is showing a lot of promise with muted colors and unique combinations. Most icon packs are either free or $1.00.

However, there is a selection of monotone icons in a couple of colors as well as more popular designs like metal, gold, wood, platinum, and others.

Vertumus has a ton of icon packs but the highlights include Umbra, Elun, Cryten, Vopor, and Rewun. Actually, pretty much everything Vertumus releases rocks a 4.7 rating on Google Play or higher so you can’t go wrong with anything. You’ll find pretty much whatever you’re looking for whether it’s colorful and vibrant, muted and flat, and even shapeless designed icons. It’s good work, check it out!

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.

For even more Android apps and games news, updates, and releases, check out this week’s newsletter by clicking here! There you’ll find a ton of information that we didn’t have time for here.
