The best apps to try out this November

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 November 2018 selection of the most fun and useful Android apps, including Inware, SwiftTask and Inboxit.

Our favorites to try in November 2018


This app allows you to find out everything there is to know about your Android smartphone. That includes the device's preloaded OS version, CPU, RAM, display pixel density and more. Much more convenient than digging through multiple settings menus on some Android UIs. The best part, however, is that you can also see how your phone utilizes its hardware - how much RAM is being used, CPU stats and others. The sleek minimalist design is a huge plus too.

If you can't get enough of productivity apps, SwiftTask is definitely one you should try out. What makes it different than your regular list app? You don't have to browse through multiple menus to add a new task. The app allows you to use symbols instead. For example, # is used for categories, such as groceries, chores, etc. For dates, you use * and @ adds a location. So, if you want a reminder to do your laundry tomorrow, you can simply type "Do laundry #chores *13.11. SwiftTask also provides you with recommendations based on previous tasks.

If you miss Google's own Inbox application, Inboxit is here to fill the gap. The app appears in the share menu of your smartphone and it allows you to save articles, videos and images for later viewing. Sharing an item to Inboxit sends it to your email with a 'single click', without having to type in your email address or an email title and body, making it quite convenient. The app also claims to grab websites' images and meta descriptions for more pleasant and readable emails. You can create reminders for yourself using the app shortcut/widget as well.

Get it on the Play Store.

    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'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
