New Android apps you have to download in July 2015

Authored by: Scott Adam Gordon — 2 months ago

It’s easy to let the good apps in the Play Store slide under the radar as they're released. In our Android Apps of the Month series, we make sure you can always discover the freshest arrivals in the Play Store. Check out some great new apps for July 2015.

July 2015

JustWatch is a resource that locates the best places to watch movies and TV shows online, without breaking the law. It launched earlier in 2015 as an online service, but now has a dedicated app for Android and iOS. 

It's a simple idea, pooling the best locations for watching videos online, but it's surprisingly useful. It displays the cheapest prices to rent or buy a particular movie or series you're interested in, as well as whether it's available on a subscription service such as Netflix, or even for free on Hulu or Crackle. There's even a 'price drop' section where you'll find special offers.   

JustWatch integrates with a number of popular media streaming and download services, as well as websites such as IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes to aid its search features. It's one of those apps you might find yourself taking a quick peek at every time you get the urge to watch something new.

Intel Remote Keyboard

Even though Intel's specialty is very much at the hardware end of technology, we're still intrigued by the tech giant's forays into software. That's why we're excited about the Intel Remote Keyboard, which turns your Android device into a remote control for your PC keyboard and mouse.

It's designed for Intel's Mini PCs, but works just as well with any PC that's on the same Wi-Fi network as your Android device. This is one of the most intuitive PC remotes around. Its mouse controls in particular are second to none.

Adobe Photoshop Mix

Photoshop Mix is a simple yet impressive photo-editing tool that can effectively replace the default photo editor on your Android device. Its features range from the usual bunch of trendy filters, to letting you neatly cut out sections of pictures and splice them into new images.

Photoshop Mix can sync with Photoshop on your PC using Creative Cloud, so if you want to do some more advanced editing, you're only a couple of taps away.

Dash Radio

The most interesting competitor on the radio apps scene to have emerged in some time, Dash Radio features over 60 radio stations curated by the biggest names in world music. You won't find any algorithm-created playlists here, just plenty of radio channels created by labels, DJs, brands... and Snoop Dogg, among many other artists.

There are no ads on Dash Radio either. We're excited to see whether it succeeds in recapturing some of that old-school 'underground' radio magic.

Game of Thrones - Telltale Games series

From the same team who brought us the award-winning Walking Dead game series comes a Game of Thrones title. Like The Walking Dead before it, Telltale's episodic adventure title has a high focus on narrative and player-choice, allowing the player to make important decisions which effect the story you are a part of. The latest episode just arrived recently, and if you haven't gotten into this yet, you really should.

Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint for Tablet

In case you missed it, beautifully optimized versions of Microsoft WordExcel and PowerPoint recently came out on the Play Store as individual apps, complete with Dropbox integration to ensure you can access them wherever you want. The new partnership between Microsoft and Dropbox means you can easily access and edit your Microsoft Office files across devices and platforms using your Dropbox account. Nice.

Flush - Public Toilet Finder

Flush - Public Toilet Finder just came out but already it has to be one of the most useful apps in the world. Flush simply locates public toilets in your area, with maps populated by thousands of options, and you can even tap the navigation button to be directed to the nearest available restroom. Perfect for making sure you are never caught-short while day-drinking. I know more than a few people who could have benefited from this app.

NOVA 3 Freedom Edition

You’ve likely heard of NOVA 3. It's developed by Gameloft and puts you in the role of Kal Wardin who must fight hordes of aliens for the survival of the human race. It’s a gripping story filled with the stunning graphics. Why have we included this game if it isn’t a new one? Simple, Gameloft decided to make it available in the Play Store for free and without any in-app purchases. Now you can take part in exciting shootouts against aliens without spending a dime (though banner ads are a bit of a nuisance sometimes).

FlashChat is a new app, which is great for university or college students as well for at work, that allow you to chat freely with anyone who is using the same Wi-Fi network within a 1 km radius. The messages are instant, however they’ll disappear from the server once you leave the Wi-Fi network. They stay private from users outside of the Wi-Fi network, plus you can choose your own username to stay anonymous if you want.

The Android maps app HERE Beta by Nokia has finally arrived in the Google Play Store. This app is truly a worthy alternative to the Google Maps app, and provides accurate and extensive data on traffic, weather, transit, and maps for over 200 countries. You also get turn-by-turn navigation, offline access, location search and directory, and the map personalization. The app is still in beta phase, but worth a try!

Google Santa Tracker

Google is also getting into the Christmas mood: the Google Santa Tracker app is here for you to follow Old Saint Nick around the world as he delivers presents to all the boys and girls. It also comes with some neat little Christmasy games.

We are convinced that this app might have what it takes to outdo the likes of WhatsApp and Skype: Wire offers more than just your usual texting and video chat, it also has image and music sharing too. The developers have also gone to great lengths to create an attractive design and ensure for great audio quality as well. The quality that Wire offers might draw people away from other popular chat services.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a four-part playable graphic novel based on letters recovered from World World I. The episodes follow four unsung heroes as they traverse a war-torn landscape and bring the horrors, adventure and energy of the great war to (almost) life. It's not a ncheap purchase at 4.50 USD for part one alone, but take one look at this following trailer and tell me you don't think it's worth it.

Monument Valley: Forgotten Shores

Forgotten Shores is an 8-level update to the original Monument Valley. If you have the original app installed you can access the additional levels via in-app purchase. Forgotten Shores not only brings more of the mind-bending impossible architecture, Crow People and Silent Princess Ida of the original game, but there's some new twists as well: both literally and in gameplay. If you thought the original levels were trippy, Forgotten Shores almost gives you vertigo in some levels.

Google's new Messenger app is a standalone SMS/MMS app, kind of like Hangouts without instant messaging integration. However, you can still send photos and videos with the app as well as audio messages, which has also received a nice Material Design interface. If you like the way Google handles messages but didn't want your instant messages bundled together, then Messenger is worth checking out.

Oh my giraffe

Oh my giraffe is a hilarious endless runner where you control a flexible necked giraffe with a bottomless pit of a stomach as you're pursued by equally hungry lions! You can bombard the lions with fruit or just gobble it all up, but this blocky side-scroller is great fun. And when the lions sleep the buffet hits overdrive!

Do you know of any other cool Android apps or games that came out this month?

Originally from the UK, Scott graduated in Popular Music Studies at Newcastle University and attributes most of his success there to his beloved Samsung Galaxy S2. A dedicated Android fan, Scott has never owned an Apple device, of any kind, and doesn't see this changing anytime soon.

    I haven’t tried most of the stuff on your list. But I recently downloaded this app called GrabPoints and so far I’m liking it. They have lots of offers in a day and the surveys aren’t long. Points given out are quite high and they’re fair about giving the points. Oddly enough they always give out points on their social media accounts too! hahaha! Anyway here’s my invite code: S6FMAC you get 50PTS right away for using it. If you download GRABPOINTS you get $1 just for signing up. You guys have to try it.

    I know of another cool new app! Drizzle SMS was just launched last week. It's just like the standard Android SMS app only it displays a small banner ad in each message window which allows the app to pay users everytime they use it. Check it out!

    Anyone who could recommend an App which lets you change you regular app widget into plain text format with the same functionality? Like changing my Messages widget into plain "Messages" without the logo.
