Top 7 Free and New Android Apps for March 2020
- 2020-03-03 13:10
Here comes March, and, as usual, it brings new apps for Android. Some of them are quite original; others are just better (or a bit different) analogs of other apps. What both sorts share is being hard to sift from tons of useless apps Google Play is full of. To save them from getting lost, we have done quite a work. So here they are, the apps of March 2020 we recommend.
Well, some of them were actually around a bit earlier, but little does that matter. All of these apps are quite useful and basically – or even completely – free. So read, install, and enjoy!
In our cloud age, syncing is no more a question in itself. But syncing needs to be finer and more easily adjustable. The app named Autosync is responsible just for that. With it, you can selectively sync your Android device with cloud resources, while even native clients of cloud services are not capable of such tuning.
It is even capable of handling multiple cloud services this way - namely Dropbox, Google Drive, MEGA, Box, Yandex, and pCloud.
Select one folder in your phone memory and sync it to a folder on Dropbox, because it saves versions and allows for sharing them. Select another, with, say, music – and sync it to OneDrive, where you have more memory. And it provides two-way syncing. That is, if you upload, edit, or remove something from another device, the changes will affect your local folder too.
ALMIGHTY VOLUME KEYS
It’s not an innovation to use volume keys for something else. Say, they can be used for turning pages when reading books, or as a shutter when taking selfies. But this app takes this sort of control to a new level. Proudly named Almighty Volume Keys, it can customize these buttons to your liking, separately for different apps.
The actions it offers are quite basic, and they are mostly system ones. Remap your buttons, so you can turn your flashlight on or off, activate the silent mode, play or stop media (like you use the buttons on your headset) and so on. The action may differ depending on whether the device is now playing some sort of media or not. It’s no trick to assign actions; the trick is not to forget them.
This one can be sung like a U2 song. Or better: it can be used to rearrange your Quick Settings menu as you like, positioning the most frequent actions the closest, or painting it any color you like, or repositioning the big clock, or whatever.
There is even more to this app: with One Shade, you can select some unconditional shape for your icons or create a new trigger in Quick Settings, for actions that haven’t been here earlier.
The interface of One Shade is in no way shady: it’s clear and easy to figure out in minutes. Just choose the right tab, and the wizard will guide you through the rest of the process. It can even assist you if your phone, being old or damaged, doesn’t support pulling notifications down with a gesture: you can enable a special side trigger that always stays on. Customize it: select its size, color, and position.
Just try this app. As minor as its effect might seem, it changes the overall impression of your phone.
Vimeo seems hopelessly secondary in this world dominated by YouTube and Coub. But it has its undoubtable pros. For example, it has issued a great video editor that can be excellent assistance in creating stories for your Instagram, Facebook, or (incredible!) Snapchat. It’s a specialized editor for small videos optimized just for that.
Yes, it supports vertical videos (if they are to be watched on smartphones). Yes, it has a lot of filters, stickers, and whatever. And yes, it has lots of music, videos, and pics you can add to your own videos.
In the paid version, you will be able to add custom logos, watermarks, cards with contact info, and so on. These are useful business tools if you use your account for the promotion of anything, from content and services to items from stores.
It’s the perfect app if you experience problems with your Wi-Fi coverage. This app is here to visualize your Wi-Fi coverage so that you can select the spots just by your eyesight. With a little help from Google ARCore that your phone should support.
First, you will need to have a walk around, entering all the corners and corridors, so the app can measure the signal level and create the map. Then, using the AR technology, it visualizes it with virtual stickers. Wherever you point your cam, a virtual sticker appears and shows the average speed and signal level for this spot. It helps if you want to detect the dead zones to avoid them or to cover them with a repeater.
The greatest thing about this app, though, is not even the AR effects. What really matters is that the app is capable of analyzing cellular signals as well, so you can measure the signal in various corners in your room to prove that somewhere is a dead zone. Or to select which corner to go to talk until the carrier fixes it.
WPS FILL & SIGN
It seems now that basically handling PDF files has become a must for both readers and office suites. But filling and signing them isn’t that ubiquitous yet. Well, touchscreens seem to be designed for handwriting and especially for signing papers! So why not?
We all sometimes need a simple PDF editor, and WPS Fill & Sign is one. It lets you tick boxes, type text in blanks, add shapes, comments the document, and so on. Its greatest feature, though, is signing. You can create a digital version of your signature and save it within the app, and then you’re able to add it to documents. The process is quite easy; you only need to be sure that this sort of signature is acceptable where you file the document.
If you have enjoyed the Cameo feature in Snapchat, well, here comes the app dedicated entirely to this. With Doublicat, you can substitute the faces of characters from GIF files with yours. It uses its own built-in AI to detect faces and adjust them to fit positions. It results in swapping faces quite seamlessly, so you become the character of the GIF you like.
Doublicat cannot do the same to videos, so to use it, you will have to convert the video fragment to a GIF file first. If you want to add some sounds, it will require a reverse conversion. On the other hand, the quality of editing is incredibly high, so applause to the AI! Yes, the photos are processed in the clouds, but the developer assures us that they are deleted right after the result is on your phone. If you trust this, trying Doublicat can be fun.
These are not the only apps available this month. March is not over, so new ones will be added. What are your best discoveries among fresh apps? Share your impressions in comments and tell the world!
