5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

This is the featured image for Android Apps Weekly 12-08-2018
Welcome to the 272nd edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • Microsoft has some big plans for Microsoft Edge. For starters, it’s replacing EdgeHTML for the much more popular Chromium. Microsoft claims the change helps them release more updates and work better cross-platform. The good news is that it might allow some serious developments like support for MacOS. However, it also means that Chrome has gobbled up yet another competitor. Opera also uses Chromium as a base for its operation too. In any case, you can hit the link to learn more.
  • Google’s chat apps are having a pretty bad week. Google Hangouts is turning into a chat platform similar to the likes of Slack or Discord. The change should take place by 2020. It was once a couple of features away from being the iMessage of Android so it’s a staggering change. Then, Google announced the shuttering of Google Allo. Google is transitioning many of the features to Android Messages, an SMS app with RCS support. It seems like Google believes RCS to be the future. Those are two more Google social platforms to bite the dust in 2018 along with Spaces and Google+.
  • Epic Games had an exciting week. Fortnite received a new game feature. There is now a creative mode similar to the creative mode in Minecraft. Additionally, the company announced a competitor to Steam and the Google Play Store. The Epic Games Store houses PC and mobile games in the same place. This could be a big deal because no other store covers both platforms. It’s also not a half bad idea with how many indie games get both PC and mobile releases. We’ll see how that goes.
  • Google announced Hummingbird officially this week. The Hummingbird platform is a simple idea with a complicated execution. It lets developers build a single app that runs on a variety of platforms, including iOS, the web, and Android. All-in-one toolkits are usually bogus with support for a single platform with a few features for a second. Hummingbird has the opportunity to be the first of its kind to not be awful. Hit the link for more details!
  • Google announced its picks for the best of 2018 in the Google Play Store. There were a lot of winners across a range of categories, including PUBG Mobile (fan favorite and best game), YouTube TV (fan favorite), Avengers: Infinity War (fan favorite), Drops (best app), Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff (best ebook), 12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson (best audiobook), and The Walking Dead (best TV show). You can hit the link to see all of the selections and check them out on Google Play!

Gorogoa

Price: $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Gorogoa is a new indie puzzle game. It features elements similar to Noodlecake Games’ Framed series. The game features a bunch of comic book style panels that players arrange and combine into a full story. It features hand-drawn graphics, a fun story line, and simple mechanics. The game itself is fairly fun to play. However, the carefully crafted animations and story are the real story here. Those who enjoy thoughtful narratives should enjoy this one quite a bit. The game is a little bit short, but most people don’t seem to mind. It runs for $4.99 with no in-app purchases or advertisements. This is also from the same developer of Florence, a slice-of-life narrative game.

Yahoo Play

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Yahoo Play is the latest app from, well, Yahoo. It’s a pop culture app and has tons of celebrity, pop culture, and entertainment stuff. It also does a bunch of other stuff. At its core, it’s a news app with news about the pop culture scene. However, it also includes original video series along with trivia and quiz games. There is honestly quite a bit to do in this app. However, it does suffer from bugs and slow load times. It definitely needs some work. This could be fun for those enjoy entertainment, but we recommend maybe waiting a bit until Yahoo sorts out the issues.

Command and Conquer: Rivals

Price: Freemium
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Command and Conquer: Rivals saw its global launch earlier this week. It’s a duel-style battle game. Players choose a hero, build an army, and battle other players online in one versus one battles. The game mechanics also include strategy elements as well. Players must control the battlefield and resupply their troops in order to win. Of course, your army is customizable as well. The game has some serious balancing issues right now. Low level players get matched up with players significantly more powerful and it’s a little annoying. Otherwise, it’s actually not a half bad game.

Google Santa Tracker

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Google’s yearly Santa tracker app is live in the Play Store as well as on the web. It has about the same content as it did last year. That includes a bunch of kid-friendly min-games, a countdown timer to the big day, and some other little bits of fun. The app then tracks Santa on Christmas Eve to the delight of young children. The min-games aren’t awe inspiring or anything, but they’re good enough for most younger kids. It’s a colorful, fun way to track Santa every year. It’s also entirely free with no ads or in-app purchases. Thanks, Google!

Absolute Drift

Price: $2.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Absolute Drift is the latest game from Noodlecake Studios. It’s a decidedly mobile game with a racing theme. Players drift around corners, avoid obstacles, and collect little red balls for points. The game isn’t fast, but it’s surprisingly intense anyway. Plus, there’s a relaxing soundtrack to bring it all together. The game also features six cars, three game modes, a night mode, leaderboards, and even Bluetooth controller support. It costs an extremely reasonable $2.99 and has no ads or additional in-app purchases. What’s not to like?

Fortnite is getting a Minecraft-like Creative mode just in time for Season 7

Fortnite Creative mode leak FortniteIntel

Fortnite is getting a third game mode called Creative. The new mode, which leaked earlier today ahead of an expected official reveal later this week, lets players build their own sandbox play areas with unlimited resources which can then be shared with other Fortnite players on private servers.

Creative will join the massively popular PvP Battle Royale mode (which is currently the only mode available on mobile) and the PvE Save the World campaign. The new mode could debut alongside the launch of Season 7 this Thursday (Dec. 6).

Editor’s Pick

Fortnite developer Epic Games has spent the past week teasing a huge announcement for The Game Awards, however, the big surprise has been spoiled a few days early thanks to a loose-lipped YouTuber.

Lachlan’s video which detailed the entire mode has since been pulled, but not before the entire internet grabbed screenshots and video mirrors (thanks, FortniteIntel). Can’t imagine he’ll be invited back to Epic HQ any time soon…

The mode itself expands seems to expand on Fortnite’s limited time Playground mode, although Creative has a far more robust set of tools for players to craft their own islands and host private matches. If you’ve ever tried out Minecraft’s creative mode, it’s basically that but for Fortnite.

Players will also apparently be able to share their creations with the rest of the Fortnite player base, with the best popping up as Featured maps which are accessible via rifts in a hub area.

It seems very unlikely that Creative will ever make its way to the mobile version of Fortnite due to memory and CPU requirements, but it’ll be interesting to see if the Featured custom maps will be playable on non-PC platforms.

We’ll have to wait for The Game Awards (also this Thursday) to find out more.

Fortnite Season 7 start date, battle pass, skins, challenges

Fortnite Season 7 is fast approaching, and it looks like a cold snap is about to hit Epic Games’ hit battle royale game. With all the confusion over Season 6’s giant cube finally put to bed, the Fortnite team has begun teasing a winter theme to coincide with the Christmas season.

Below we’ll be piecing together all the clues and leaks, and running through everything we know so far. Here you’ll find the Fortnite Season 7 start time, Battle Pass details, map changes, weekly challenges, new skins, and more! Check back frequently to stay up to date on the ever evolving world of Fortnite!

Put down your Llama Bell and check out the rest of our Fortnite content:


When does Fortnite Season 7 start?

Fortnite Season 6 and the Season 6 Battle Pass end this Thursday. Fortnite Season 7 starts later that same day on Dec. 6. Here are the usual start times for Fornite Seasons:

  • 4 a.m. ET
  • 1 a.m. PT
  • 10 a.m. CEST
  • 9 a.m. BST

Epic confirmed the Season 7 release date on Twitter just three days before the mayhem is due to kick off. Dec. 6 also happens to coincide with The Game Awards. The show’s host, Geoff Keighley, confirmed that a big Fortnite announcement and “world premiere” will be announced during the event.

While there’s a chance we might catch our first glimpse of the Fortnite Season 7 trailer at the show, one of Epic’s PR representatives has teased that the announcement is much more significant than the new Season launch.

Epic Games’ worldwide creative director of Fortnite will be in attendance for the big reveal, as well as mega-popular Fortnite streamer Ninja, who is both nominated for an award and presenting.

When will Fortnite Season 7 end?

The Fortnite Season 7 end date should fall ten weeks after the start on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019.

How much does the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass cost?

Like the previous seasons, the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass should cost 950 V-Bucks. You can buy 1,000 V-Bucks for $10. While there’s a free Battle Pass for players who don’t want to spend their hard earned cash, you’ll only unlock the most sought after exclusive skins, emotes, and other cosmetics by completing challenges to progress through the premium Battle Pass’ 100 levels.


Fortnite Season 7 Theme and Map Changes

Fortnite season 7 iceberg castle

After an exploding giant cube transformed Loot Lake into Leaky Lake in the closing weeks of Season 6, things have gotten a little quieter around the Fortnite map — that’s all about to change.

All the signs point to a winter theme for Season 7, with a possible medieval theme once the Christmas period comes to an end. Here’s what we know so far.

Editor’s Pick

The first sign of a cold front came with the appearance of a blizzard in the middle of November, which was visible when peering out beyond the map from Flush Factory.

A week later, the snow storm parted to reveal a massive iceberg. At the same time, players started noticing you could now see your avatar’s breath in the cold when standing on the starting island. 

The map changes seem to suggest we’ll be treated to a range of skins and other items that fit a winter theme. There’s also the chance the iceberg could collide with an existing area of the map — data-mined files are suggesting Tilted Towers could (again!) be a target.

The winter theme was later all-but-confirmed by Epic Games thanks to a teaser image accompanying the Season 7 release date. The image shows an icy figure wearing a crown that also doubles up as a mountain with a tiny skier on the right side. The caption “a bitter ice spreads” is also a pretty big giveaway!

However, this could all just be the tip of the iceberg (get it?).

Eagle-eyed players have now noticed the top of a medieval-style castle poking out of the iceberg (see image above), indicating the rest of the building is encased in the ice.

This could also tie-in with the portal technology in the Wailing Woods laboratory, which shows a reflection of a castle at certain angles.

We’ll know more as Epic begins to further tease Season 7 this week ahead of the full launch.
