New Android apps: AndroidPIT recommendations for December

Update: Datally, YouTube Go and Onetap Glitch

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 Datally and YouTube Go to help you save your monthly mobile data allowance, and Onetap Glitch for cool photo effects that are hard to get anywhere else.

Apps you need to try: December 2017


Datally, Google's recently released app is designed to help save you from using up your monthly data allowance. It lets you monitor and reduce data consumption on your Android device. View your daily, weekly and monthly consumption in a graph, or your consumption by app. You can even use the app to locate nearby Wi-Fi hotspots.

Get it on the Play Store.

Onetap Glitch

The glitch effect is one of the most difficult to create on a smartphone, as usually elaborate software has to be used. But, using Onetap Glitch, you can get great results without much effort at all. There are several effects, which you can set, like webcam lag, and its possible to save the photo directly to your device right after editing so you can share it on Instagram and elsewhere.

Get it on the Play Store.

YouTube Go

Until now, YouTube didn't have a lite version, which is a shame since it has a tendency to use a lot of mobile data. But now, there's YouTube Go, which allows you to download videos for later viewing, which is particularly convenient for those who want to download over Wi-Fi rather than their limited mobile data allowance. This app is not officially available on the Play Store in most regions, so you will most likely need to install the APK. Don't worry though, it's simple and we explain how to do it in our tutorial for installing YouTube Go.

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

  • very informative ,regarding up to date technology

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

  • Please I have not been able to download through my play store

  • 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
