So, what are we waiting for? Let’s check them out.

1. Music Player

BeatBox Music Player is a free mp3 music player for offline songs. Use this app for its amazingly fluid interface and backgrounds. What’s more, if you don’t like the default theme, you can change it right from the app itself.

Moving on, the settings menu contain a number of settings to make your music experience worthwhile. And like most of the music players out there, you can choose to select your songs through Artist or Albums. However, it won’t let you sort the songs or albums. Hopefully, they will close that gap on the future updates.

2. Shabaam – GIF + Sound

If only GIFs had sound? Well, it’s 2017 and it’s possible. Say Hi to Shabaam.

The app contains a ton of GIFs to choose from, so all you have to do is take your pick and record the sound. Simple. So now you’ll have an innovative style of sending birthday wishes over.

3. Kick WiFi Thief Off – WiFi Spy Detector

Kick WiFi Thief Off, as suggestive of its name, kicks off WiFi freeloaders from your network. It has a simple interface which lets you see the IP addresses and device names of those who are connected to your network.

And if you find some unknown IDs connected, you can kick them out through the device administration.

3. Screenshot Assistant

Screenshot Assistant has a unique method of taking screenshots. Just long-press on the home button and your screenshot will be taken. What makes it more useful are the editing tools that come along with it.

To use the Screenshot Assistant app, you’d need to replace the Android Assist & voice input with this app.

4. Adobe Scan

Adobe Scan is one of the latest apps from Adobe. Similar to CamScanner, it lets you quickly scan pictures and images and transform it into a digital format.

The best thing about this app is that it takes automatically stock of the situation and scans the document at the appropriate time. Once done, you can either chose to save it as a PDF or enhance the scan further.

Like most Adobe products, this one too needs an account before you can use it.

5. Firefox Focus: The Privacy Browser

Privacy is the talk of the town these days and you wouldn’t want the world to know which site you visit and when.

Focus, a new privacy browser from Firefox, helps take care of that. It blocks ads, ad trackers, and even analytics trackers.

What’s more, it has a nifty feature to delete browsing history with just a push of a button. So no more searching in the settings menu. Impressive, eh?

6. AMOLED mnml Wallpapers

If you have an Android smartphone with an AMOLED screen, your best bet is AMOLED mnml wallpapers. It contains a number of minimal but beautiful wallpapers that you can use to enhance your screen as well as save battery in the process.

Good news for the Galaxy S8/S8+ users, there are specially designed wallpapers to fit into the long screen.

7. Shortcutter Quick Settings

If you are one who is on a lookout to add more convenient options to the Nougat Quick Settings menu, then look no further. Say Hi to the Shortcutter Quick Settings.

With just a few taps you can add any number of shortcuts to the quick settings menu, whether it’s an app shortcut or the NFC switch. And if the Quick settings menu gets loaded up, the sidebar will help you in accessing all the tools.

8. VPN Private Internet Access

VPN Private Internet Access is a free VPN service which doesn’t require any logins or signup for access. All you have to do is open the app and connect. It has two mainly two options to connect,

  • Best Choice — the app will choose the best server for you.
  • Your Choice — click on the dropdown and choose the country of your choice.

Another nifty feature is the small speed test option at the bottom of the page to determine the speed of your connection. What’s better, it doesn’t trouble you with disturbing ads in between.

9. Sensoroid – Sensor Info

If you want to have a look at how your phone sensors are faring, then the Sensoroid app will be able to help you with that.

It has a simple interface listing all the sensor data and tapping on will give a real-time information on its performance.

10. Fokusi – Study Timer

Surely, incoming notifications on smartphones are tempting enough. I can’t remember the number of times I have whatever I was doing and picked up the phone. And there go deadlines down the drain.

If this drill sounds familiar, an app called Fokusi will be able to assist you in sticking to your deadlines.

All you have to do is set a timer, pin the screen and you won’t be bothered by notifications at all. If you ask me, the developers should move the cancel button to another discrete location.

That’s All, Folks!

These were some of the handy apps that were released in the last few months. Do let us know how many of these found a place amongst your favorite apps.
