Many new Android, iOS and Windows Phone apps have been released this week. Some of these apps are even available for free. Let’s take a closer look.
Many of the latest Samsung phones come with curved display on both sides. Of course these devices look beautiful and add provide more features to the users. However, not all people buy these devices but you can install Circle Sidebar from Google Play Store and get the same sidebar that Samsung Galaxy Edge phones provide. The app is available for free on Google Play Store and it is compatible with all Android devices running Android 4.0 and above.
The app allows users to set the width and size of the sidebars according to their preference. Users can also decide which apps they want to add in the sidebars. Circle Sidebar is a pretty good app that increases the productivity and improves the overall user experience.
Reigns is a newly released Android strategy simulation game that is a relatively newer genre. Like other strategy games, you have to fight against you enemies, defend your regime and maneuver the world with your tactic. The only tact is, you don’t have to be in the field but instead you are given a stack of cards where you can select what strategy you want to impose.
The game is quite similar to Tinder where users can either swipe left or right to choose the best option. The longer you play this game, the more you learn about the mechanics behind it. Reigns is available for $3 on Google Play Store and the good thing is there are no IAPs to empty your pockets.
Photo Scan is a Windows Phone app that allows users to extract the textural part of any image. For example, if there is something written on the paper and you want it in digital form then Photo Scan is the app for you. The alternative is typing the text manually that of course would take lots of time. You can download Photo Scan for free from Microsoft App Store. The app allows users to either take a picture by using built-in camera or they can scan an existing image.
Fast Speed Test
Fast Speed Test is an app for iOS devices especially for iPad. You can download it for free from iTunes. Unlike many other speed testing apps, Fast Speed Test is specifically developed for users who want to check their internet speed before watching their favorite TV series or movies on Netflix. Other speed testing apps use their own servers to check the reliability and performance of your network.
However, these results could be inaccurate and they also take some time because they only perform full scale tests. On the other hand, Fast Speed Test shows internet connection speed instantly and it uses Netflix’s own servers to check the performance. Another great thing about Fast Speed Test is it’s easy to understand interface; you don’t need technical knowledge to understand the information it shows.
