Hello, friends! This sunny Sunday, I am pleased to present the latest release of my selection of the five most interesting applications of the week for the Android operating system . In this issue, four useful programs are traditionally waiting for you, as well as one very stylish game with an excellent soundtrack. Read all the fun under the cut .
1. Control Center - iOS 7 Style
One of the main innovations in the new version of the mobile operating system iOS 7 was the sliding control panel Control Center. Craftsmen were able to transfer this convenient panel to the Android OS. The application is adapted for Android devices and supports the Russian language interface. The panel allows you to switch settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, switch the screen orientation, transfer data over cellular networks, as well as launch some standard applications.
It should be noted that the panel is adapted for landscape display orientation, which is very convenient for tablets. Control Center is much more convenient than the standard notification panel in the Android operating system, because it has the ability to quickly launch standard applications. It is worth noting that the panel can be called up on the lock screen. The Control Center application - iOS 7 Style is available for free on Google Play , and there is also a paid Pro version for 30 rubles with additional functionality.
This week, the Russian company Yandex introduced its new mobile application Translation, which allows you to translate words or entire phrases into your native language and vice versa. The program allows you to translate phrases or words with additional information about their pronunciation and use in speech from 18 world languages. The application boasts automatic language detection, tips for typing, as well as simultaneous translation when entering words.
In addition, the program can reproduce words with its own sound module so that you learn its pronunciation. The program is suitable for those who are on vacation abroad and would like to know the pronunciation of their phrases like "What time is it now?" in other languages. The program needs internet access. The Yandex.Translation application is available for free on Google Play .
3. LockScreen Free
One of the new Android apps is LockScreen, which expands the functionality of your lock screen. The new program includes a completely new lock screen, on which you can bring out the necessary applications, favorite contacts, a keypad for dialing, as well as the inclusion of a flashlight. It should be noted that on the lock screen all notifications about missed calls, messages, as well as notifications from applications are conveniently displayed.
Another advantage of the application is security, which implies the ability to set very complex passwords. Your password for unlocking the device may contain movements to the icons of programs or contacts, which makes your device very secure, because hardly anyone will know this. In general, the application makes unlocking your phone and accessing the necessary functions faster. LockScreen Free is available for free on Google Play and on the Treshbox , and there is also a paid version (60 rubles) of the application with additional functionality.
Mobile developers have very different opinions about the convenience of surfing the Internet on a smartphone or tablet. So the developers of the Surfingbird application also have their own opinions in terms of working on the Internet. The program is a tool for convenient reading of content on popular sites. You can choose topics of interest to you and enjoy reading articles in a format convenient for mobile devices.
The program has built-in special mechanisms for marking articles you like so that other users can see them in the Popular tab. In addition, you can share the content you like in your social network accounts. In general, Surfingbird is a convenient mobile tool for reading and viewing images. The Surfingbird app is available for free on Google Play and on the Treshbox .
Many love the music artist Kavinsky, and after the release and popularization of the movie Drive, he became even more famous. With the release of his new album, Kavinsky decided to make his own mobile game, in which selected tracks will sound. This week this game became available for iOS, OS X, PC and Android. Kavinsky is not a fun and innovative gameplay, but it is leveled by a great soundtrack and good style.
You play as Kavinsky himself as a brutal guy with a cool car. You have to fight with street gangsters, as well as chasing them along picturesque roads. Among the interesting features of the game, it is worth noting the possibility of adding your own background at some levels, such an unusual implementation of augmented reality. Kavinsky is available for free on Google Play .
I hope you enjoyed the latest selection of four programs and one game. The next edition of the Most Interesting Android Apps of the Week digest will be released only next Sunday. Stay on the Treshbox and find out about the most useful programs for your smartphone or tablet.
