New Android apps: AndroidPIT recommendations for September

Update: NFL Mobile, Clockwise Smart Alarm and Split-screen creator added

Keeping track of the best new Android apps available to download is a full-time job, 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. This month's featured apps include NFL Mobile just in time for the season to start, Clockwise Smart Alarm to keep your mornings optimized and Split-screen creator which brings the Note 8's App Pair feature to any Android phone with Nougat.

Apps you need to try: September 2017

NFL Mobile

It's not a new app, but NFL season is about to start, and there's no better app than NFL Mobile to keep up with it. It's just been updated for the 2017 season. You can get updates for all 32 teams, from the off-season to the Superbowl. That means news, game highlights, minute-by-minute scores and all the stats you could possibly want. Verizon Wireless customers can stream games via the app, and with an NFL Game Pass subscription, you can watch replays.

Get it now on the Play Store.

Clockwise Smart Alarm

Clockwise is an alarm that reads your favorite content to you, in order to make your morning a bit nicer. You set it like a normal alarm clock, but you also can attach widgets or modules to each alarm that trigger it to read certain content to you. You can customize it to tell you the weather in your area, the length of your morning commute, the news, top Reddit posts, new Tweets from your favorite users, reminders and more. Plus, it's got the usual set of features you expect from an alarm clock: volume, snooze, music tones, etc. The only drawbacks are the ads and that it only reads to you in English.

Get it now on the Play Store.

Split-screen creator

If you have Android 7.0 and up, you can launch apps in split screen. But, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a special feature that many users of other Android phones are jealous of, and that's App Pair. App Pair allows you to launch two apps in multi-window mode at the same time, and this app brings the exclusive feature to any Android phone. While it doesn't work perfectly with all app combinations, and it's not compatible with MIUI, it can be a very nice feature for those who like to watch YouTube while browsing Twitter each morning while riding the bus, for example. It also allows you to create nice custom shortcuts to launch your app, using any icon you want, including those from third party icon packs.

  • I've tried various privacy browsers to avoid cookies and kludge when opening one-off sites from news aggregators or emails - the main problem is site compatibility, sites that open in full-feature browsers sometimes won't in the lighter ones. The best so far has been Ghostery but I'd be open to try FF Focus.

    I like firefox focus, even though you can't save passwords, use new tabs, etc.. Just the pleasure of not having ads pop up, scroll past, slow load the page ,etc.. makes it earn it's stripes with me. If I need saved passwords, and all that other stuff, I will use chrome( it's still my default ). For those times you need no-nonsense browsing, it's the best.

    I wish Socratic had a way to teach general knowledge. When standing in line, I'd like to just learn facts and interesting things.

  • The Android apps I use mostly when it comes to the messaging side of things are "Facebook Messenger," "Duo," and "Allo" (which is getting a "desktop" version soon.)
    I do have an iPod Touch of my own, though "IMessage" and "FaceTime" are rarely used.

    BTW, no one on here has mentioned "Threema" yet.

  • wow!
    really awesome, i like photo editor and i will install these apps.
    i am keen on snapnote. it is quite suitable for an old student like me.

  • Thanks for the recommendations, energy bar adds the touch I've been looking for
