December has arrived and we could not be more excited. From vacation planning to New Year's resolutions, much remains to be done. Phew! But before you start, how about giving a new look with a set of new Android apps? Yes, we are ready with our list of new Android apps.
This month's edition has everything from a cool gallery app to a nifty battery app. And, they will help you get the most out of your phones.
So, without further ado, let's start.
If you are not satisfied with the Gallery application stored on your phone, you can check the 1Gallery application. It comes with a lot of clever features. For example, you can hide some of your photos and videos in the encrypted folder called Secure Folder.
Secondly, there is a "Find Big Files" feature which, as you understand it, allows you to see all files with a large memory footprint. So, if you have a phone with low internal memory, you can easily find the large files that accumulate space. And it's a smooth ride after that. Make a backup of these files, then delete the photos from your phone's memory.
1Gallery is a clean and uncluttered application – the interface is refreshing. You can choose to see only videos or photos via the option at the top. In addition, it is possible to mark some files as important. After that, tap the star icon at the top to access it. Cool, no?
2. Lockdown Lite
Today, most phones have built-in functionality to lock applications individually. However, if your phone is not equipped with it, you can try the Lockdown Lite app. It is a simple and light application that locks a few specific phones with a PIN code, password or fingerprint.
The configuration of this application is simple as hello. You must choose the applications you need to lock, choose the type of lock, and that's it. The good thing about LockDown is that it uses very few Android permissions.
Are you looking for intuitive note-taking apps for your Android phone? Say hello to Transno.
Transmo allows you to try several types of notes, whether it is a simple list, a nested list or a beautiful mind map. All the features and settings are exactly there in the application – choose the right one and get started.
The interface of the application is fluid. Once you start using it, you can not go back. Creating a sub-list is one of the best features I've loved. Press the Withdraw button, add your entry and you're done.
Transno has several models for you if you do not want to get your hands dirty when designing your note. Press one to select it and add it to your notes. After that, you are ready to leave.
Each rechargeable battery has a specific life cycle. And we all know that negligent charging, such as charging or overcharging, is harmful to the battery in the long run. And applications such as BatteryGuru are focusing on ways to extend the battery life by monitoring its health.
It has a set of reminders and alarms that warn you when the battery reaches a certain level when charging. And the same goes for unloading. In addition, you can also see the usage pattern if the native battery application of your phone does not allow it.
And you can further optimize the battery or see its temperature, among others. If you are concerned about the battery life of your phone, it's a must-have app.
5. Answering Machine for Instagram
If you receive a ton of Instagram posts every day, it becomes a chore to handle them. If so, you may want to try AutoResponder for Instagram. As you may have already guessed, it sends an automatic response to all incoming messages. Cool, no?
And the story does not stop there. You can customize incoming and outgoing messages and specify when you want the application to work. And it works even when you have multiple accounts on your Instagram.
The good thing is that AutoResponder does not access your DMs. Instead, it reads the message from the notification panel. And so you do not lose track of outgoing messages, AutoResponder warns you every time it sends an answer.
It is easy to use, although at first glance the rules may seem a little complicated. All you have to do is define all the rules, and that's about it all.
6. Guitar Tuner Pro
This app is for musicians as well as amateurs. It is useful for tuning the guitar – whether it is yours or belongs to someone else. It uses the phone's microphone to help you tune your guitar and, according to many commentators, it does a very good job.
The interface is uncluttered and simple. You have to select the cord, play it and the application will guide you through the rest.
Apart from that, there are also other features. On the one hand, there is a huge library of ropes. And if we follow the claims of the developer, he would have about 2640 agreements.
7. Lock Me Out
On this day of exciting web shows and great apps on social media, you have to work hard to stay away from the phone. Often, I found myself browsing my Instagram feed or watching YouTube videos in the middle of the day. Although the Digital Wellbeing module helps you see the time you spend on your phone, in some cases that is not enough.
That's when Lock Me Out should be useful. As its name indicates, it locks you out of your phone if you exceed the unlock number or if your screen exceeds the specified limit. Cool, no?
Any deadlines or application names can be specified when configuring the application. In short, most of the options are customizable. After all, your phone should not block you out of your email application.
Go get them all!
In recent years, the Android system has evolved enormously to the point that most of the features and enhancements we usually seek are included in the built-in features. Take the case of screen recorders, screenshot editors or the integrated photo editing suite, for example.
Nevertheless, third-party applications help add the extra zing that is missing elsewhere.
So, which of the two will you have?
