Top 5 Android Apps for August 2012
The month of August is a boiling point for the Android community with Samsung receiving major legal issues from Apple. However, the tensions did not restrict application developers from deploying some great apps on the marketplace. This month we saw the return of a long lost android specific feature, the Live Wallpapers. Yes, making into our top 5 list for August 2012 are a bunch of awesome live wallpapers along with other great noticeable apps. So let’s dig deep and find out the list for this month.
Galaxy Pack Live Wallpaper
Ever since the launch of Samsung Galaxy Series, the default milky way wallpaper was quite famous. Today, all I can say is that the Galaxy Pack is one of the best live wallpaper ever created for Android. The depiction of galaxies, nebula, star clusters etc. are so accurate that you will keep staring at your smartphone screen for hours. The pack features 11 different galaxies and loads of customization option for each one of them. You can change the color, optimize the performance for your phone, choose the type of starts and the list just continues. The animations are so smooth and fluid that your phone feels like magic. I know I am exaggerating a bit here, but trust me guys, this wallpaper is worth every penny. The company named Maxelus also promised that they will release a series of updates and new themes for this live wallpaper pack. Here is a video below showing Galaxy Pack in action.
Submarine Live Wallpaper
Yet another Live Wallpaper makes into our list for the top 5 android apps in August. The Submarine wallpaper is a class of its own. Not only are the animations fluid smooth but the level of customization that the app has to offer is extraordinary. The main scene displays a first person view of someone looking towards the sky from underwater. The first thing you will notice is the beautiful reflections of sunlight with deadly accurate light dispersion movements. Occasionally you will encounter wild animals like dolphin, manta etc. and even human divers passing across your screen. The movement of living habitat triggers a perfectly synchronized water ripple animation.
Once you are happy with the basic settings you would want to customize this live wallpaper to suit your needs. Submarine offers a wide range that includes changing the speed of pass-by creatures, increasing or decreasing the light intensity, background brightness, light of center, type of animals and the list simply continues. This is a paid app and I highly recommend everyone to buy it because it’s the best live wallpaper for android till date.
Asphalt 7 Heat
This is one of the most popular racing games in the mobile world industry. Right from its first game, Asphalt saw major success across all mobile platforms. Gameloft first released Asphalt 7 Heat for iOS and now it’s bringing its latest racing game to the Android. If you are a fan of the series then I know you will buy this game because it’s the best one yet. The graphics have improved tremendously and you can clearly make out the difference from the previous generation release if you play on devices like HTC One X or SGS3. The gameplay has not changed that much with the exception of a superbly thought out multiplayer mode. There are lots of areas to choose from and the car collection never feels old. This is a fun, easy to play racing game and I recommend this paid app for anyone who loves this genre.
Smule Auto Rap
Smule has evolved into a high quality application brand for the music genre. Their piano and songify apps have attracted millions of music enthusiast who wants to play anything without the pain of actually learning the instrument. With Smule Auto Rap anyone can rap and create songs like a pro. When I use the word pro, I literally mean it because this app is so amazing that it actually tingles you to try your career as a rapper. All you need to do it speak out a bunch of words and then watch the magic happen as the in-app software detects a rhythm from your speech and crates a rap song with synchronized background music. The app is completely free to download and I insist now only music lovers but anyone to try it cause it’s a lot of fun.
Web MD Baby
Web MD has created a lot of health related apps catering to different specific needs. With Web MD baby the company aims in providing a one stop solution to all you baby care questions and queries. The app covers lots of articles, pictures and informative videos which are divided into easy to understand sections. The most creative part about this application is that you can save thoughts, images etc. to create your very own baby book and share them on social sites. This app is completely free to download.
