If you are wondering what are some of the best Android apps you should try this month, stay tuned. This post is the continuation of our web series – best Android apps of the month, best Android games of the month, and also, the best iOS apps of the month. This post is updated every month with the addition of new cool apps worth trying.
In this post, you’ll get to know about the top 10 best Android apps you should try this month. Most of these Android apps are free and available for download without any cost. However, some of these come with in-app purchases.
So that being said, let’s get started.
Top 10 Cool New Android Apps You Should Try in July 2018
In this video, I’ll review top 10 best Android apps for the month of July. Excited? Let’s find out which cool Android apps I have for you today.
Let me start with one of the trending Android apps of this month and it’s coming from Google itself. Google silently launched its podcast app – Google Podcasts.
Google Podcasts allows you to listen to podcasts for free. It has got a very clean and minimal design which I would say, a typical Google app’s material design. Google Podcasts is aimed at providing you with a great user experience.
On the home page itself, you are greeted with the list of top podcasts, trending podcasts, and top podcasts by genres like comedy, social and culture, news and politics etc. The podcasts player is very clean with a cool design. You can skip 30 seconds forward or rewind 10 seconds back. You also get the functionality to speed up to 2 times and trim silence as well.
In the settings, it doesn’t offer as much customization options as I do expect from a premium like app made by Google. However, you get some download options which is good. If you love listening to podcasts, Google Podcasts is an app you must try. I have tried other podcasts apps on Android as well but trust me I found Google Podcasts to a lot better.
Next app I have on the list of best free Android apps of the month is coming from Adobe. If you are a graphic designer or simply create lots of social media images like Instagram posts, Facebook cover, etc. or even professional design work like designing a flyer, posters etc. then Adobe Spark Post is the app you must try.
Adobe Spark Post is one of the most powerful graphic design apps that will come very handy in your every graphic design needs. It comes with a huge number of pre-made templates. You can either choose from various pre-made templates already available or add your own image to create your template. You can remix the graphic to tweak its color, design, palette, layout, or effects. You also get the functionality to resize the graphic for social posts.
According to me, this functionality alone is a real deal breaker. As you know that different social media platforms have their own sizes and remembering size or dimension of the image for each social media platform is tough. But with Adobe Spark Post, you don’t need to remember them now. The app is currently in beta but you can download it now as I have provided the link in the description below.
And here comes the cool app you had been waiting for. Amoled Wallpaper is the wallpaper app of the month.
Amoled Wallpaper presents you with some fancy wallpapers for your Android device ranging from different categories like Abstract, games, animals & Creatures, Anime, architecture, flowers, minimal, nature & landscapes, space, superheroes & movies, alphabet & typography, supercars & vehicles, materials etc.
Apart from the ads, you’ll see here and there, the app has a pretty good user interface as it presents you with the straightforward option to download wallpaper or set wallpaper on your phone simply by tapping phone icon.
Moving on to next app which is CatchUp – an app for catching up on things. No this is not about catching in the game of Cricket. Instead, Catchup app for Android is more like a feed app which aggregates feeds from different sites like Reddit, Hacker News, Medium, Product Hunt, Slashdot, Designer News, Dribble, GitHub etc.
If you explore these sites and find yourself spending lots of time on these, thankfully, you don’t need to waste time visiting them individually. Catchup app does the work for you.
Currently, the app is unreleased and in development mode but you can download it right now because I have provided the download link in the description below.
5. Google Lens
Another app made by Google that caught my attention this month is Google Lens. I have noticed Google already been testing Google Lens features in beta since last year on its Pixel phones. But other Android users were missing it.
Finally, Google has introduced Google Lens for non-Pixel devices as well. Google Lens continually analyses what comes under your phone camera to scan it and provide you with information in the real time.
Google Lens can detect whatever you point your camera at and provide you information about that particular object whether it is a product, plant, object, or text etc.
Simply open Google Lens and point your camera at object and Google Lens will detect what object it is. Google is doing wonders in Artificial Intelligence technology and Google Lens is the perfect example of Google’s perfection in machine learning.
6. Nord VPN
If you are browsing the internet, you need a VPN for multiple needs. But finding a reliable and trusted VPN is tough. Thankfully, Nord VPN is one of the most trusted VPN for Android.
Nord VPN is a very fast VPN that hides your browsing activities. So you can use Nord VPN for private and secure internet connections. It comes with a 7-day free trial.
It has got a large number of countries and servers to choose from but what I like most about Nord VPN is that it provides you with the functionality to choose the server based on the specialty like P2P, Anti DDos, Double VPN, Dedicated IP etc. If you are looking for a good VPN app, be sure to check it out. Download link is in the description below.
Most of the times when you are reading anything and you come across another wonderful piece of article link that you find worth reading, you tap on that and it takes you to a new page, thus you need to reload the previous page again.
If you ever found it irritating to manually open links in new tab, thankfully, there is an app which can help you automatically open links in the background. The name of the app is Flynx. Flynx lets you read the web smartly by loading articles and links in the background so that you can open new links without leaving the current article.
Simply tap on any link and it opens that page in the background. Pretty simple, Right? But it has also got some advanced features like saving articles to read later and cloud sync. Simply double tap on any link you come across any app, and Flynx will automatically save it to read later. But keep in mind, this works only if Flynx is your default browser for opening links.
Next app I have on the list is for people who find themselves interested in learning history. Today in History is a useful app to know what happened on this day in the history.
It’s a nice addition to your list of reading apps as it provides historical information with the help of the historical calendar. You also get the functionality to choose any other dates from the calendar to know information about that particular date.
Moreover, you can also save events or add your own in the agenda section. In the settings, you can choose different themes, and I found the dark theme to be awesome. You can also configure the app settings to get notifications about random events, breaking news, or agenda – which is an advantage.
Snow is a cool video messaging app that works on the principle of the latest Augmented Reality technology.
It is a nice AR Camera app with a variety of AR stickers, exploring which, you’ll find fun. It has got many cool filters as well. You can click a picture of yourself or create a video to share with others.
And the best thing is: you also get a lot of music to choose from. Choose any music from top trending songs and create your own music video. Snow – AR Camera app lets you enjoy a whole new world of AR technology, so be creative and the possibilities are endless.
10. Web Games Portal
Last but not the least, I have an app for gamers. Ever thought of playing popular games without installing? Well, I have already created a video earlier about how you can play any Android game without downloading or installing.
But the app I’m talking about will take your gaming experience to the next level. Web Games Portal is the app that lets you play games without installing. You can play games like Badland, Guns n Glory Heroes, RGB Trucker, Crazy Color Switcher etc.
It has got a database of more than 1400 best web games that you can play on your Android device without waiting to install. You may choose from various categories like Arcade games, racing games, action games, skill games, Puzzle games, Adventure games, shooting games, Strategy games, classic games and many more.

It simply offers you more options to choose from.

We are almost ready for Android P, and almost everything has changed in Android during last 4-5 years. But one thing which is still irritating is the notification bar.
If you are one who likes a clean notification bar with minimal design and less distraction, this is the app for you.
