    Audio Recorder

    Sony Mobile Communications

    81874 ratings

    I was rushing for an interview yesterday and looking for a last-minute voice recorder. Audio Recorder did the trick. It's foolproof to use, and my recordings sound pretty clear—it even captured the rustling of my notebook pages. Yay for last minute a...

    Slack is the best way to slack at work. And the app is, I must say, quite pleasurable to use. Good UI, polished look, smooth transitions. No complaints there.

    Shattered Pixel Dungeon

    Shattered Pixel

    37221 ratings

    I love pixel dungeon but ever since they introduced weapon degradation I've been seriously stumped. Also, Shattered comes with some pretty cool additions like special artefacts and wands and rings. Vanilla fans who've done the whole run for all 8...

    Clue - Period Tracker

    BioWink GmbH

    131362 ratings

    This period tracker isn't pink! That's all you need to know. Okay also it's pretty funky looking and keeps track of how you feel (Bloated? Crampy? I-just-wanna-watch-the-world-burn?) and body fluid-related stuff. I like it a lot, and the main...

  • Amaze File Manager Amaze File Manager

    Amaze File Manager

    Team Amaze

    8447 ratings

    I don't need much from a file manager, just, y'know, basic file management. Amaze looks good and does a pretty good job at letting me view my files, shift and delete stuff, and even hide secret, sensitive items from prying eyes. It's pretty sweet.

  • Lightning Web Browser Lightning Web Browser

    Lightning Web Browser

    Anthony Restaino

    11300 ratings

    A little late, perhaps, but I just tried Lightning Browser and it definitely lives up to its name. Besides being pleasantly speedy, the browser's also lightweight, cleanly designed, and plays nice on my S2. I really can't ask for more.

    A few days ago, I was 8888 days old. How about that, huh? ZUI Days counts down the number of days left until an event, or counts the number of days it's been since an event. It comes with alarms and all that jazz, and it is gorgeous in a modern,...

    Forest: Stay focused

    forestapp.cc

    41320 ratings

    Plant a sapling, work for half an hour (or more), and watch your hard work grow into cute lil' trees. Forest is somewhat like a pomodoro timer, with a slight pinch of gamification a là Farmville. I wonder what happened to Farmville.

  • wallsplash | wallpaper app wallsplash | wallpaper app

    wallsplash | wallpaper app

    Mike Penz

    1535 ratings

    wall:splash is the new-kid-on-the-block wallpaper app. It's clean and material, and pretty sparse in terms of categorisation, filters, and functionality at the moment. There's potential, though.

    Ho-ho-holo! Circle Alarm is for those who simply want a Holo alarm clock, which Samsung sadly did not supply. I love my phone, but ugh, TouchWiz design standards.

    No, I'm not obsessed with to do list apps. There are just too many georgous ones out there. Three is sleek and lightweight, with a flat (buzzword of 2013) UI. Its font choice is also really cute.

    Disclaimer: No Holo, bro. This app is every flat design lover's worst nightmare. The notebook design, the paper texture, the handwritten-type font—it's like Revenge of Skeuomorphism. But damn, it looks good.

    A timer for up to 60 minutes. You can even speak to it, like you have a fancy butler whose only job is to time your mundane actions. "Fifty minutes please, Alfred. And after that, please bring me some caviar."

    This app is the annoying know-it-all whiz kid you hated in school. It's a calculator, it's a converter, and it can solve linear equations with up to 10 variables. It doesn't look bad either.

    If you're too cool for a real compass, Holo Compass is the right app for you. Of course, if, like me, you have absolutely no wildlife survival skills to speak of, you'd still die if you get lost in the desert—even with this app.

    Another app for you to switch apps without buttons or superfluous steps, this time in pie form! And you can customise the colours, activate apps using both short and long presses, and have two pie layers (yum). It's easy as, you know, pie.

    If you're using the official fb app you'll realise it's almost exactly the same as its mobile site. Klyph, on the other hand, follows the Holo design guidelines. And everyone loves Holo, amirite? The free version has ads, though.

    So customisable you'll squeal in delight. Okay, maybe not squeal. The only thing you can't customise is the font, and I'm not even complaining because the font's not half bad. Works with calendars and a couple of to do list managers.

    If you hate the stock/touchwiz/sense cameras, or want one more camera just because you can, choose this camera. It's free (!), it has tons of filters and weird effects (I still can't figure out what the audio thing's for) and it looks great to boot.
