Traditionally, every week on Treshbox a fresh selection is published with applications that have recently been released on the Android platform. In this issue:
AdHell 2 is a utility for blocking ads and restricting application permissions on Samsung devices. All mobile gadgets from the South Korean corporation pre-installed Samsung Knox add-in, designed to protect user data. One of its components is the built-in firewall that filters the interconnections. It is he who underlies AdHell 2, thanks to which the utility completely blocks all ads in any installed applications, including browsers. Since Samsung covered the original AdHell in due time, it will take a little work to install its modification - but the result is worth it.
Via Browser is a “lightweight” browser for low-performance devices. The developers of this web browser managed to create the almost impossible: they fit rich functionality into an application weighing less than 0.5 MB. This "compact" browser is designed to work quickly on older devices, and therefore it does not load ad modules by default. However, this is the only one where developers have sacrificed functionality for speed. All other features of modern web browsers Via supports: page caching, night mode, confidential browsing, plugins and a download manager. This browser is a rare combination of simplicity and functionality.
Temp Mail - a utility for creating temporary email. Most services require you to specify real mail when registering, which will receive a confirmation link. You don’t always want to indicate a valid "email" on questionable resources. In such cases, Temp Mail comes in handy. This program instantly creates a “one-time” email, which you can use when registering on the “gray” resources. The application interface is as simple as possible: only the address and button of the mailbox are visible on the main screen. All mail is automatically deleted an hour after viewing.
Musical.ly is a service for exchanging creative and creative ideas. Most social networks are focused only on text communication between users, but the creators of Musical.ly went further. Their service was created to exchange remakes of famous clips and fragments from films. It is the musical parodies that are the main component of this social network, and the messages are just a small addition, which is necessary to evaluate the work of users. The design of the application is made in a modern style. The appearance of the service resembles "Stories" on popular social networks.
LightX is a photo editor focused on a wide range of users. In addition to basic actions in the form of cropping, color correction and text overlay, this application can create caricatures, repaint the color of a person’s hair in photographs, combine objects from several images, smooth skin and the like. Thus, LightX is useful to anyone who wants to surprise their friends with their photo on pages on social networks. At the moment, the application is in the pre-release version, but it is devoid of bugs and obvious flaws.
