The best Android SmartPhone Apps November 2018
The 7 best Android apps turn your phone into a jack-of-all-trades
Seven new apps you need to try (November)
1. FIREFOX REALITY BROWSER
Virtual reality is slowly but surely taking off, and while Google has finally launched versions of Daydream with the Chrome browser built in, perhaps you prefer to use Firefox. If that’s you, then we recommend checking out the Firefox Reality Browser, which is a new virtual reality web browser that’s available on Oculus, Viveport, and Daydream devices. The browser allows you to do things like search URLs, browse 2D and 3D things on the internet, and more.
2. ASSISTANT SHORTCUTS
Ever wish you could remap the so-called Assistant button on your phone to another feature? With this app, you can. The app was largely inspired by the OnePlus 6T, which allows owners to activate Google Assistant with the power button. With this app installed you can remap buttons to do things like switch to the last used app, go back, open the notifications panel, and more.
3. HIRE BY GOOGLE
Looking to hire some new employees? Hire by Google aims to make that process a little easier. According to Google, Hire makes recruiting as easy as using Gmail. With the app, you can review incoming applications, identify good candidates, and more. The app integrates with the likes of Google Search, Gmail Calendar, Docs, and others. Note: this app is not for people looking for jobs; it’s for people looking to recruit.
4. POCO LAUNCHER
A great launcher can seriously change your overall experience with your smartphone. Poco Launcher, which was developed by Xiaomi, is designed to be simple, easy to understand, and generally helpful throughout the day. The launcher includes features like the ability to change your app icons, hide app icons, change home screen functions, and more. Plus, it’s sleek and well-designed, which is always helpful when it comes to software.
Ever thought about trying to improve your speech? Gweek is here to help you do that. With Gweek, you’ll record a minute or so of yourself talking, after which the app will give you a score out of 100, recommending ways that you can improve your speech to be more clear and concise. The app is perfect for public speakers, or simply those that want to get a little better at speaking in general.
