Every week thousands of new apps hit various Android App Stores and today we take a look at the best of the bunch. Google released a new Photography cloud storage app at the Google I/O developer conference and there are plenty of new games too.
All of these apps are available to download for free from the Good e-Reader Android App Store. There is no registration and you can download it directly from the web. If you have a smartphone or tablet, download our official app.
Jurassic World – Return to Isla Nublar with the creators of the smash hit Jurassic Park Builder for your next adventure: Jurassic World: The Game, the official mobile game based on this summer’s epic action-adventure. Bring to life more than 50 colossal dinosaurs from the new film and challenge your opponents in earth-shaking battles. Construct the theme park of tomorrow in this unrivaled build-and-battle dinosaur experience.
Google Photos – This is a new app that stores your photos in the cloud, similar to iCloud from Apple. Not only is it available for Android, but iOS too. You can save and edit not only photos, but movies as well. This helps free up space and is better then syncing your phone to your computer.
Lara Croft: Relic Run -This game is an endless runner adventure for nostalgic Lara Croft fans. When a shadowy conspiracy threatens the world, only Lara Croft is equipped to unearth the truth. Collect clues to uncover ancient relics. Run, swing, drive, and swan dive your way through beautiful and challenging environments. There’s no time to waste, but how long can you survive?
Office Lens – Office Lens trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable. You can use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word and PowerPoint files, and you can even save images to OneNote or OneDrive. This app is actually very underrated for people who are students in class or are in meetings.
Periscope – Periscope lets you broadcast live video to the world. Going live will instantly notify your followers, who can join, comment and send you hearts in real time. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen. This app is from the owners of Twitter, so it is getting lots of media attention. The battle right now for on the go streaming video recording is Periscope and Meerkat.
Yallo – The Future is Calling – Yallo is a start-up with a big and bold vision: to reinvent the phone call so people can fall in love with it again. We’ve all seen the innovation in messaging, photography and video—from WhatsApps and SnapChat to Instagram and Meerkat. But the phone call hasn’t changed in decades. Until now.
Aeroplan (Beta) – This is a new app that allows Canadians to access your account summary, including mileage levels, Distinction and Air Canada Altitude status. It also allows you to use your card virtually, much akin to flashing the Stackbucks app to pay for coffee.
Shazam – Not a new app, but the music recognition service is in the process of reinventing themselves. They have added the ability to scan QR codes and play music, audio or video. Shazam has just signed agreements with some major publishers for author interviews.
TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games – Bring the Games to your mobile device with this powerful and simple-to-use app, presented by CIBC. Whether you’re on your way to a Games venue or planning your Games experience well in advance, the app is the best tool for building your personalized TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games guide that brings you venue details, Games maps, Torch Relay maps, ticketing information, spectator services and features connected to the TORONTO 2015 sport program, official celebrations and cultural program. It’s the most convenient way to engage with the Games and bring the Games with you wherever you go.
COOKING MAMA Let’s Cook – The original Cooking Mama game for the Nintendo WII was the first game I ever played on that console. I was working in the video game industry at the time at a production studio. This game enamoured us all and sold very well. A DS game was made of it and now it arrives for Android. Its zany and wacky and you cook things, whats not to love?
