Welcome to the 5th edition of Android Apps Weekly. Introducing the new article series where you will get the best free Android apps list. The article will be dropped every Monday. Every edition contains five best apps and you should definitely give a try to them. And if you have any suggestions, please do let me know, I will mention it.
Android applications on the Google Play Store increasing drastically. It’s really good to see development growth for Android. And that’s why, right now, Android is the most preferred operating system. You get more freedom across the platform. You can sideload apps if they are not available on the Google Play Store.
I can understand, to find out the best apps for Android phones is quite hard. A new app pops up on the Google Play Store every day. We don’t even know which one we should try. But, we will always try to bring a list of the best Android apps for you all. Anyways, let’s walk through the best android apps list.
Bouncer – Temporary App Permissions
Security layers are now being most important day by day on your Android smartphone. And that why Google introduced permissions. It’s a crucial feature which doesn’t allow any app to access applications or services on your phone such as camera, microphone and most importantly, location services.
Every time you are asked to give permission, you get two options on the screen. Either you can allow – that way an app can use service in the background or you can deny. However, you cannot give temporary permissions like only once. Here Bouncer app comes in picture.
Bouncer gives you the ability to grant permissions temporarily. For example, you want to tag a location or take a photo but don’t want that app to be able to use the camera or get your location whenever it wants. As soon as you exit the app, Bouncer will automatically remove the permission for you in an instant so you can get back to doing what you do best, without having to worry about apps invading your privacy and wasting your battery.
Moving on next app — Skit. Skit is an application manager for your Android device. Skit lets you explore the more detail about the applications installed on your Android device. The applications come with the minimal user interface but with tons of other features.
With Skit, you can easily share an app installed on your device in .APK format across any platform like WhatsApp, Telegram, Gmail, etc. Further, the app also allows the user to see how many permissions are any particular app asking for. So, if there is any app asking for useless permission, you can know using Skit.
Furthermore, you can find out how any selected application works from the inside. The list of activities, services, used permissions and even the details of the application signature certificates.
Brevent – the name seems made of the word ‘Prevent’. If you jump between tons of apps every day then you should know some applications could always be running in the background which eventually eats a lot more battery of your device. And if you carry your smartphone and want a longer battery backup, you definitely try Brevent app on your device.
Brevent app can be used to keep applications on standby or force close them. You might have seen that whenever you force close any applications from the Settings app, it starts its service automatically after a particular time. But, when you will force close any app from Brevent, it won’t start again until you open them manually.
Also, the app which you are using every day, you can keep them on standby if they are using more battery. So, even if the application is kept in the background, it would stay on standby mode and it will only come in play when you will open it.
PrivacySafe: Hide Photos, Video, and Apps
Coming on the next one – it is PrivacySafe. PrivacySafe is a fantastic privacy protection app that can easily hide photos, videos, apps and any other file that you do not want others to see. Furthermore, the app can hide installed app icons. That way you can also keep your app data secure. The app also comes with a dark theme which puts this app in the list of the current trend.
PrivacySafe also allows a user to hide files using pattern, password, and fingerprint. However, the app contains ads which could a bit of annoying for you. So, whenever you add any file to hide in this app, it will show ad once those files will be imported. The banner ads on the bottom stay throughout any window in this app.
Newton Mail is another powerful email client that you can switch to. If you are generally using Gmail app more often in your daily life, then Newton Mail app is the next preferred email app you should try out. Newton Mail is known for its cross-platform abilities, user interface, and smart search capabilities.
Just like other email clients, it also supports primary email providers. Furthermore, you can also integrate other work tools like Pocket, Evernote, Trello, Zendesk, etc. Newton Mail app has super minimal looking inbox theme. Thanks to the new updates. Well, the app is not totally free, however, with a premium subscription, the app offers features like Read Receipts, Send Later, Undo Send, Snooze and more.
So, you won’t regret if you purchase a subscription. And if you don’t want to, you will get 14 days free trial if you are a new user.
