5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week

Welcome to the 388th edition of Android Apps Weekly. Here are the headlines from the past week:

  • Samsung is ending support for Samsung Cloud. This week, the company extended its cutoff date to November 30, 2021. People can easily migrate their data to OneDrive by the end of October 2021. We don’t know why Samsung is ending support, but it’s probably a lack of interest and use. The original end-of-life date was August 31, so Samsung gave people two more months to get their stuff out.
  • In 2014, Sundar Pichai said he wanted Android and Chrome OS on every screen possible. Years later, Microsoft is actually bringing Android apps to Windows and using Amazon to do it. Our own Robert Triggs pontificates on the ramifications of this and how Google failed to deliver, but Microsoft did not.
  • Google is experimenting with a new feature in Google Chrome. The feature places the search results in a horizontal scroll. Google calls it Continuous Search Navigation. The feature is available in the Flags section of Chrome. Click on the link to learn more about how it works and how to activate it.
  • Google faces another antitrust lawsuit in the United States. The lawsuit alleges that Google is abusing its power at the top by charging developers too high a fee for using the platform. It’s part of a much longer and ongoing battle with Epic Games. Fortnite has been removed from Google Play for the same reason. A later update gave us more details. There are 36 US states involved in the lawsuit. Google says the lawsuit ignores the larger issue where its biggest competitor is Apple’s App Store and not other Android app stores. Keep an eye out for this one, it might get interesting.

Orion

Price: Release

Orion is a dating app with a sense of humor. It helps you build your profile with suggestions and prompts and helps break the ice by asking questions of both people. The app mainly focuses on chat and competes directly with services like Hinge and Tinder. The app is relatively new, so there are several bugs. Most complain about account creation and login issues. Otherwise, it seems like a rather pleasant experience. We hope the developers keep making things better.

Rage of fate

Price: Free to play

Rage of Destiny is an idle game similar to games like AFK Arena. Players have fun dealing with heroes, leveling up, and doing things, but the majority of the game takes place with the player offline. The graphics are pretty good and the gameplay is pretty decent. You can obviously pay to get ahead, but it doesn’t pay as much as some other games in the genre. Some people complain that it looks too much like Mobile Legends: Adventure, but it’s only really a problem if you play a game and upgrade to it.

Dogname is a simple application. It helps people come up with a name for their new dog along with their significant other. The app includes more than 30,000 names. It presents names in card format similar to apps like Tinder. You slide back and forth on names you like and the other way on names you don’t like. From there, your partner does the same. The app alerts you when you both find something you like. Even though it’s for dogs, you can name pretty much anything with this app so it works for all pets. Honestly, a baby version of that would also avoid a lot of arguments. In any case, it works well.

Shiny nikki

Price: Free to play

Shining Nikki is the sequel to the popular Love Nikki game. It’s a fashion game where players dress Nikki in a variety of outfits. The studio reportedly worked on this game for three years. The result is a ton of clothes to dress up Nikki. Players play the game, dress Nikki, and do things like photoshoots for magazines and the like. It’s a sim for sure, and a fashion sim too. It’s not the most popular genre, but it does have a loyal following. Make no mistake, this is a pretty big game, so be sure to check your storage before downloading. Some players also find the game repetitive after a while. Otherwise, it’s a great fashion game.

Water resistance tester

Price: Release

Water Resistance Tester is an interesting application. It uses your app’s barometer to see if your weatherproofing is still intact. Basically, the app allows you to press down on your phone with both thumbs and measure the pressure inside your device. It declares the device sealed if the pressure increases when you press and unsealed if the pressure does not increase when you press it. It’s actually a pretty useful little tool. Dropping your phone or getting old can cause the seal to break, so it’s helpful in making sure your phone is still water resistant. We’re not 100% sure its accuracy, but we tested it with an IP68 device and a non-resistant device and the app called it both times. Cared for!
