The month of September is upon us and keeping up with the monthly routine, we are back with a new set of cool Android apps. This month, we have compiled a list of apps which can bring a nifty iOS-like control center or a camera app with built-in AR to your Android. And yeah, we also have a cool SMS Organizer from none other than Microsoft.
As it’s going to be a long one, let’s jump straight in.
Holo lets you add holograms of real characters — super heroes or animals — into your pictures or videos. So, even if you haven’t really met Spiderman, you can have a little holo of him sitting next to you or perhaps on your shoulders. Cool, noh?
If you are choosy about your phone wallpapers, trust the HD Wallpapers from WallR app to take care of it. It comes bundled with a beautiful collection of HD wallpapers with an easy-to-navigate interface.
What’s more, if you are pushed for time but yet would want to go for the best wallpapers, the Standouts section under Top Picks will serve the purpose.
The SMS Organizer from Microsoft is an app that Android, unfortunately, never had. As its name suggests, it focuses on the important messages and in the process filters out the spam.
What’s more, it also segregates payment related, transactional and promotional messages into nice little tabs. Beyond that, it has a read/unread toggle at the top which makes segregation even cooler.
4. Control Center IOS 11
Another nifty Android app is the Control Center IOS 11 app. It replicates the iOS 11 Control center on your Android thus giving you easy access to the controls like brightness, volume, calculator, screen timeout, etc. and toggles for Bluetooth or Wifi.
It needs a tad setup in setting up the camera app or music player and once done, but once done, all you need is swipe up on the home screen and all the handy settings will be instantly available.
Odds are that most of us use around 3-4 messaging apps at the very minimum. DirectChat (ChatHeads for All) is the app which keeps all the messages under a single roof, thus making it convenient to reply to messages from a single platform. Not to mention the amount of time saved which goes into opening different apps.
This app supports 16 apps and also lets you customize them. What’s more, you can also have floating chat heads to access the messages even better.
6. S Player – Light & Powerful
The Google Play Store has its share of both powerful and mediocre video players. And a new kid joining this herd S Player – Light & Powerful.
It’s light and sports a handful of nifty features like gesture playback with ease.
As suggestive of its name, it’s light and sports a handful of nifty features like gesture playback, eye-protection mode, and real-time sync.
Plus, S Player also boasts of a video scanning feature which scans through both the internal memory and SDcard for playable video formats. However, this feature also has a downside — all the annoying WhatsApp videos also makes its way to this list.
I think we have all been in a situation where we struggle to remember a particular word, but can’t get down to it. That’s when Reverse Dictionary comes in.
It lets you describe a concept and it gets back to you with a set of related words which describes the phrase best. For instance,
For instance, great river London translates to Thames or big mountain Nepal translates to Everest.
And for more desperate situations, it gives you the option to select from the Sounds like or Spelled like.
8. Pixomatic photo editor
The Pixomatic photo editor app lets you remove, replace and cut out non-essential image elements from your pictures all from the comforts of your smartphone. All you have to do is mark the edge of the object and the rest of it will be taken care of by the app.
Beyond that, you can also use it to blur image backgrounds for bokeh effect, apply filters on top of other filters and manually adjust image color and opacity.
What’s more, it lets you make stickers and add it to pictures later.
