The best Android apps to try out this March

Another month, another batch of fresh app recommendations. We've been digging through the Play Store to pick the very best, must-try apps of the month to show you. Enjoy our March 2019 selection of the most fun and useful Android apps.

Our pick of the best new apps to try in March 2019

App Tiles

If you don't think your notification bar/quick settings area offers enough useful shortcuts to the apps you really want, then this one's for you! App Tiles gives you the option to add up to six shortcuts for apps in your quick settings area on the notification bar. It's easy to use and does exactly what it says on the tin without requiring any invasive permissions. This practical app is great for hoarders who don't want to go through multiple drawers to find the apps they use most often, and is free to download, although supported by advertising.

Get it on Google Play

Nova Launcher

Fast, fluid, and user-friendly, Nova Launcher is a long-running and well-loved customization app that really brings a new dimension to the Android experience, and it just received a bumper update that makes it even better. If you've never tried it, we heartily recommend downloading it to transform your user experience. Longtime fans will appreciate the revamped settings, new icons and even more options to customize every aspect of the launcher. 

Nova Launcher's improvements are available in both the free version, and the $4.99 paid version that also includes gesture controls and more control over your app drawers.

Live Transcribe

Live Transcribe is a free new app from Google that takes advantage of Mountain View's advanced voice recognition to convert live speech to text. The app is intended primarily as an aid to deaf people, and it does a decent job of transcribing deaf people when they speak out loud too. Live Transcribe supports over 70 languages and supports bilingual operation. Aside from the hearing-impaired, it's also a handy app for journalists to use during interviews, students for their lectures and seminars, and business people for important meetings.

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

  • 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 was here from someone but not exactly is there but i here from that recently someone launch a application like we have enter mobile number and we have got the all chatting information which we have to do with all our contacts is it true or not can you please inform me..?

  • 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
