The best Android apps to check out this July

The best Android apps to check out this July

We're back this month with a fresh round-up of the best apps to check out from Google Play Store. Enjoy the July 2019 selection of our Android app favorites.

Our pick of the best new apps to try in July

Spotify Stations

Spotify Stations is a new app which Spotify calls an "experiment". While it's clearly a work-in-progress, it's one of the most simple and pleasant apps of its kind already. Those who remember the good old days of Pandora will find the concept familiar. Spotify has basic station themes available like country or workout music by default, and it can build them based on an artist mix you specify. Then it customizes the stations based on your input (thumbs up or down) and specified artists. It's truly a great radio-style app for those who don't like to fiddle with playlists all the time.

Flappy Royale

If you're a fan of Flappy Bird, Fortnite, or both...you're in for a treat. Flappy Royale is a battle royale game, with gameplay similar to Fortnite, but with the adorable retro fun of Flappy Bird. Like the original Flappy Bird game, you have to avoid obstacles, but here, your goal is to outlive the other 99 players, who you can also see flying past you in real time. Give the beta version a try!

Sometimes when you're itching to buy a new smartphone, all you really need is something to make your phone feel new. If new wallpaper and phone cases aren't cutting it, it's time to jazz up the user interface of your Android smartphone! Those who like a clean, modern look and feel will enjoy this launcher app based on Xiaomi's MIUI. Created by XDA Developers user TomBayley1, MIUI-ify offers a notification and configuration panel inspired by MIUI 10 which allows you to quickly access Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other settings... It's a great way to give your phone a new refresh!

    I installed Datala and found that mobile data traffic dropped, which is a very good thing.
    I recommend this app.

  • "Every time you visit a website, it will show you how many trackers are attempting to keep track of your." - Please finish your sentences.

  • 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
