1. Focal (Beta) (Get it for your android) Free
Focal is a fully featured camera app looking to provide the most features on the most phones possible, including device-specific features on some devices. This app is the official release from the ex-CyanogenMod app.
2. Anchor by Tomfoolery, Inc. (Get it for your android) Free
This app is about the people you work with. Great teams, and great organizations, aren’t built on tasks and documents, but rather on real relationships between real people who work together. Anchor is about empowering those relationships. Put simply, it’s the best way to share and connect with your colleagues.
3. Frozen LED (Get it for your android) Free
Manage your LED notification light fast and easily. No more trying to guess which app or which person demands your attention with random colors.
4. G Cloud backup (Get it for your android) Free
Phones get lost, stolen and misplaced every single day. In this hectic life we’re leading, it’s hard to remember where you placed your keys, so having a backup plan is always a must! With G Cloud installed, one can rest assured that all the precious contacts and data can never be lost. You can get up to 10GB of free storage, and with the new update, G Cloud 3.0 grants you web view access and many more new features. If you want to backup all your app&game settings just download the key for rooted from here!
5. FindIt – Email and File Search (Get it for your android) Free
Finally there is a better way to search on your phone! Use the beautiful FindIt visual filters to quickly find what you need. Just select a person, time period or type of file to narrow the results and find the file or email you are looking for no matter where it is across.
6. Moves (Get it for your android) Free
There’s a reason Moves has attracted millions of downloads on iOS. It doesn’t require the purchase of a separate device, instead turning the smartphone that’s already in your pocket into a pedometer. This isn’t unheard of on Android, but Moves is available for free and isn’t weighed down by ads. ProtoGeo wants Moves to be an app that mainstream people actually use, and that means keeping it clean, simple, and non-intrusive.
7. Incredipede (Get it for your android) $1.93
All you have to do is get to the luminous beam of light at the end of the level. That’s all it takes to progress through Incredipede. However, actually figuring out how to get there is a bit of a challenge. In each level your buggy avatar has to mutate to make its way onward, growing new limbs and muscles as needed. This kind of experimental gameplay has a tendency to go wrong, even if it starts out strong. Incredipede might have things figured out, though.
8. Sheep Happens (Get it for your android) Free
Have you ever tried to count sheep in order to fall asleep? It doesn’t work. Why? It’s not just because sheep are far too noisy to use as sleeping aids, it’s because there’s something oddly unsettling about them. What do they have hiding under their fur – wings perhaps? The sheepocalypse is upon us, and yes, those are sheep falling from the skies. It’s time to run endlessly to put an end to this madness. Or something like that.
9. JackThreads (Get it for your android) Free
JackThreads keeps its shoppers at the forefront of fashion, but until recently, its Android app failed to do the same. The curated, members-only website offers clothing sales that lasts for a few days to a week, a formula that all but ensures that its offerings never get stale, yet its mobile app smelled of Gingerbread at a time when users were increasingly developing a taste for Kit Kats. Now the JackTheads app should look as stylish as that trendy pair of jeans you snagged for 50% off.
10. Pivvot (Get it for your android) $2.99
It’s very hard for a game developer to strike the right balance between rewardingly difficult and so frustrating as to be unplayable. Pivvot walks a fine line, but manages to be mind-bendingly difficult and still somehow incredibly fun. All you have to do is guide an orb along the track and avoid obstacles by pivoting clockwise and counter-clockwise. Yeah, that doesn’t sound challenging, but it really is.
