Welcome to the 286th edition of Android Apps Weekly! These are the big headlines of the past week:
Price: Free / $ 3.99 per year
Atmosphere Weather is a slightly different weather app. It features a unique user interface with a lot of potentially useful information, including a weather radar. You get a quick, easy 24-hour overview of the forecast. The developer says this helps make planning decisions easier and a greater focus on presentation rather than raw information. It takes a minute to get the hang of it. However, it is a fairly eloquent system. You can get more information from other weather apps if you have to see all that data for various reasons. Atmosphere Weather is a good, simple weather app. It works free with ads or ad-free with a subscription of $ 3.99 per year. We have no problems with both options. However, we would like to see a weather widget or two in a future update.
Monsters With Attitude is an online fighting game with heavy PvP elements. It features PvP battles with up to eight players at the same time. Players smash things, each other, and cause general chaos while they fight. It also uses a custom engineer. The larger your character becomes, the more damage it inflicts on smaller players and the environment around you. To be honest, it plays a lot on IO games (Agar.io, etc.), but with better graphics and a nicer premise. The game has some optimization problems and some bugs that can be solved. However, it has a lot of promise as an online arcade fighter.
Price: Free / up to $ 23.99
Energy Ring is a customized app for Galaxy S10 owners. It turns the front camera into a recess in a battery monitor. Last week we talked about Hidey Hole. It has a lot of backgrounds for the camera cutouts. However, Energy Ring has slightly more functionality. You can adjust the light if you want. It does not use a ton of battery and you can get some nice animations when you are connected and charging. It currently only works with the S10 and S10e with S10 Plus support that comes later. We are reasonably satisfied with the way the adaptation community has embraced the punch hole camera. It is actually quite fun.
Price: $ 1.99
This War of Mine was our choice for the best Android game of 2017. The developer still has more content for the game and this is an independent DLC for This War of Mine. You play as a father. You try to get your daughter out of the horrors of war by escaping a besieged city. It contains harrowing storyline with difficult decisions that should leave you emotionally exhausted. There is also a crafting, cooking and moral system to ensure that everyone is healthy. Spoiler, that's not going to happen. It's a great experience for just $ 1.99.
Firefox Lockbox is a new, free password manager from Mozilla. It works as you would expect. You put passwords and usernames in the app. He remembers these and fills in forms for you on your smartphone or tablet. It syncs with Firefox & # 39; s password manager, so those who use Firefox must have your stuff available immediately. However, this is still a work-in-progress. The app contains quite a few bugs, including synchronization problems and problems with automatic completion. It will undoubtedly get better over time. However, we do not yet recommend that you step on LastPass.
