We all know that Android is an open-source platform and what this means for regular users, is that there are tons of apps available on the Google Play store, developed by great developers in order to provide better alternatives to many of well-known apps like Youtube, SoundCloud and more.
In this article we are pleased to introduce and recommend you such alternative apps and games: from a great icon pack to personalize your home screen UI a bit, to a third-party Launcher, to an alternative to Prisma photo app, a YouTube app replacement app that gives one more control when he is multi-tasking, an online bingo game on Luckypantsbingo.com, a recently updated site which has a brilliant thought out design and top grade UX. .
So let’s get started with the following best five Android apps of September 2016.
Vinci is a faster alternative to Prisma, the well-known Android app which can turn your photos into a great piece of art using AI technology (Artificial Intelligence). Altough Vinci doesn’t have as many filters as Prisma does (yet), it has a better speed when you apply a filter. And if you didn’t know, Vinci is developed by VK (VKontakte), a Russian social network.
- Free music for YouTube: Stream
YouTube has a pop-up feature for it’s videos, but only inside the app, when you’re looking for more videos to watch. But what YouTube’s official app can’t do is put the video into a small pop-up and keep playing while we do what we want to do, like texting on Whatsapp, browsing Facebook or anything else. Well, “Free music for YouTube: Stream” has this feature and it’s absolutely awesome. You can watch a YouTube video in a resizable pop-up and you can place it anywhere on the screen. That’s a feature we all want to see on Youtube’s official app, but thanks to some open-minded developers, we can enjoy this feature through a 3rd party app.
Mysplash is an unnoficial client of Unsplash.com website. Because Unsplash.com doesn’t have a dedicated app for Android, so developers created one. Mysplash is the best alternative to download thousands of high definition wallpapers. The great part is that all the wallpapers are photos made by professional artists and they are free to download. Also, the resolution is always higher than 1920x1080p (FHD), that means you won’t see any low quality wallpapers in there.
