There are 12 new and noteworthy Android apps and live wallpapers from the past two weeks including Project Activate, HelloSign, and Chroma Galaxy Live (9/18/21).

Points Highlighted:

  • HelloSign is a digital signature service that’s been around for a while, and DropBox purchased this service back in 2019, which is why DropBox just published this brand-new HelloSign app. As you can imagine, this is an app for requesting signatures in documents, signing said documents, and you can even add the fields for signatures to your documents for an all-in-one solution.

  • Project Activate is a new app from Google designed to help those with disabilities communicate. This is primarily aimed at those who can’t use their mouth or hands or talk, and so this app provides commands for facial expressions that the user will make to chose words and phrases on the screen. This way, those with disabilities can easily communicate, and best of all, this app makes it easy to send texts and make calls since it also supports text-to-speech. With all the deserved flack Google gets in areas like search and YouTube, it’s great to see the company can still create tools that make people’s lives better.

FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App is an older release, but seeing that it just crossed my radar, I wanted to toss it into my weekly app roundup. This is, of course, an app designed to teach children how to read, and it’s completely free. No advertisements or in-app purchases, plus the lessons are relatively straightforward, resulting in an intuitive app that any kid should be able to pick up and have fun with.

Consumerism has hit the point that we, as a species, are now creating nonfudgeable digital content, all so people can buy and sell content that can’t be copied. I have no idea why anyone would spend money on images that can’t be copied, as this all looks like a massive waste of money for a ridiculous fad, and yet somebody has created an app where people can show off their collections. OpenSea is described as a marketplace, but there’s no buying or selling going on, as this is a social app for following creators and showing off collections. Perhaps I’m too old to “get it,” or maybe NFTs are completely ridiculous. I suppose it’s up to you to decide.

Sky News is a streaming app designed for Android TV, sporting an all-new UI for this brand-new listing. So if you’re the sort that just has to watch 24/7 news, happen to live in the UK, and enjoy Sky’s content, then this is indeed the ATV news app for you.

Samsung Health is a fresh health app from Samsung that ties into its Galaxy line of smartwatches, all thanks to Google’s option Fit not cutting it for most users. This is why TicWatch offers its own health app, so it’s hardly surprising to see Samsung cleaning up after Google as well. More or less, if you’re the sort that wants to put all those Wear sensors in the Galaxy Watch 4 to work, then you’re going to want to use this app to keep the stats from all of those sensors neatly organized. So far, this release looks to be incompatible with all of my devices, though it has already racked up millions of installs, so most people will find this app pre-installed, though it seems clear Samsung will soon be updating this app through the Play Store.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
