Best Apps and Games of the Week

Here are the best apps and games that came out this week.

Best Apps


Dropbox for Android finally got the long awaited Material Design update. This means a slide out menu on the left and a floating ‘+’ button to upload files. I wish there was more to talk about but it seems that is pretty much the extent most people seem to go with their Material Design. Nothing particularly spectacular still a welcome UI refresh, especially if you use the app regularly.



Shazam for Android has added support for Android Wear, which, oddly enough, comes after the Apple Watch version of the app. The app lets you look up song names right on your watch with a couple of taps and also shows lyrics that scroll automatically as the song plays. The app also lets you look up songs by saying “Shazam this song” in Google search on your phone.



Close5 is a classifieds app by eBay that lets you login using your Facebook account and quickly put items for sale for people nearby, 5 miles to be precise. You can buy and sell and your identity remains protected. If you get a buyer or found something you’d want to buy, you can use the built-in messaging feature to contact the other person.



Instant messaging app Telegram just added support for stickers. There were some already in the app previously but now you can download additional ones. Creating stickers is also fairly simple process and anyone can make stickers for the app and send the link to their friends to install them.
