Hey There ! Today we got you all new android app launch for October 2016, helping you to make sure you Keep track of the best new Android apps available in the market, which is why we do it for you. Here you’ll only find the ones worth spending your valuable time (and maybe even money) on. All you need to do is download them.
Released last month, Google’s Allo messenger (also available for iPhone) is entering an exceptionally busy space, already dominated by the likes of WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and numerous other large players. Google’s new messenger, however, brings a whole lot more to the table, most notably by integrating elements of the Assistant it showed off at Google IO.
Assistant is integrated into your chats with other people (you can fire it a request at any time by using @google in your chat or you can have a one-on-one with it, if you prefer. It’s not just useful because it taps into Google’s Knowledge Graph though, you can also carry out actions (like booking a table at a restaurant) directly via the app.
Privacy fans will also like the fact that you can have Incognito chats, as well as set a time limit on how long conversations stick around. It also supports end-to-end encryption. Add in that Allo ‘s messenger aspect lets you quickly add things like stickers, emoji, GIFs and all the other fun stuff and it’s worth a look this month for sure.
Anchor isn’t an entirely new app, but it hasn’t been available on Android devices before, having launched earlier this year for the iPhone. In a nutshell, you can think of it a bit like a mini podcast or an audio version of Twitter, perhaps, as each broadcast is limited to two minutes or less. As a result, it’s not a format that will appeal to everyone.
For those that do like the sound of it, no pun intended, getting up and running takes less than a minute and the interface is pretty self-explanatory. Each recording is called a ‘wave’ and each wave is part of a conversation. After you’ve recorded one, other people get the chance to record their own in response and interact.
As you’d expect for any social-based audio platform, there’s a friend system in place too, so you can keep track of waves from people that you enjoy. You can also see some basic stats on how many people are listening and interacting with your waves too. And best of all, it’s free.
There are a lot of bookmarking apps for Android, but a lot of them just aren’t that smart. Stash is though. Instead of requiring you to manually tag and add keywords for bookmarks and arrange them by category, Stash will automatically recognize lots of different types of bookmarks and add tags for you.
As well has having a [so new it’s still unreleased] Android app, there’s a Stash Chrome extension too, which lets you manage everything from your browser, and push notifications and bookmarks between devices. You can even add reminders to bookmarks, to ensure you don’t forget to come back later and check them out.
Stash isn’t quite open to everyone yet, but if you register interest and share the special link you get to the homepage with 10 friends (i.e. 10 different people need to click the link and look at that page), you can skip the queue. We could never condone just using a VPN, changing locations 10 times and clicking the link in a private browser though, obviously.
The main list of stashed items needs a little UI love on Android, but it’s a promising start for an app that hasn’t yet launched.
