New Android apps: AndroidPIT recommendations for August

Update: Laugh Out Loud by Kevin Hart, Ava and Radiate 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 apps include Laugh Out Loud by Kevin Hart to entertain you, Ava to help make the world more accessible to the hard of hearing and Radiate to help you find friends at festivals.

I am more interested in the code of this page than in the article.

Apps you need to try: August 2017

Laugh Out Loud by Kevin Hart

Everyone's favorite comedian and actor now has his own app, which is like an all-digital comedy network, and you could say it's Seriously Funny. Kevin Hart's app will make you laugh out loud with with streaming videos of comedy specials and exclusive series, in addition to blog posts and live broadcasts. There's no cost, but you can subscribe for $2.99 per month for instant access to additional content and to make everything ad-free.

  • Version tested: 1.0.1
  • Compatibility: Android 4.4 and up
  • Price: free with in-app purchases

Available in the Google Play Store.

Ava

Ava's goal is to simplify the daily lives of the deaf and hard of hearing. It is intended to be an alternative to interpreters, which tend to be very expensive. What does Ava offer? It transforms spoken words directly into text on the screen so that the person with trouble hearing can read them. It's like a rapid subtitling, or smart captioning, system.

The app isn't perfect, but overall, it does what it sets out to do. It should be noted that the app is available for free, and for $30 per month you can upgrade to get more features. It is definitely a worthwhile investment in improving daily life if you or someone you know has hearing difficulties.

  • Version tested: 1.0.3
  • Compatibility: Android 4.1 and up
  • Price: free with in-app purchases

Available in the Google Play Store

Radiate

Radiate is an app for meeting people. Forget about Tinder, this is not about helping you find someone to accompany you on dates, but to accompany you to festivals. You use your Facebook account to log in, then you get access to a list of festivals around the world which you can declare your interest in attending. 

You can also choose to swap profiles, or participate in festival-specific conversations. It's great for making friends, asking questions and discovering where the fun is at a particular festival.

  • 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
