Top 10 most popular Android apps from last week: Lemon Wallet, Ovo Timer, EyeEm

Android_apps_design

Every week we cover Android gaming on Wednesday, followed by Android Rookies on Thursday, and Top 10 app updates on Friday. Now every Monday we will look back and see which ones were the most crowd-pleasing among our audience. Read on for the 10 most popular Android apps among your peers from last week.

1. Lemon Wallet

 

Lemon Wallet allows you to store a digital copy of all of your cards–ID, insurance, loyalty and payment cards–so you can access them whenever you need. The app is free to try out, but most of the premium features require a subscription plan. It looks like a cool finace service, but the app is still rather new and you might want to wait for it to mature a little more.

2. Ovo Timer

 

Ovo Timer is a basic timer app with a simple interface and voice control built in. It only does one thing, but it does it well as the app has an average review score of 4.7.

3. Dolphin Jetpack

 

This week Dolphin Browser upgraded to version 9.0 and added support for the Jetpack add-on. This improved webkit version offers the fastest HTML5 performance on Android, which is 5-10X faster than the default Android browser and 2X faster than Chrome.

4. GameShelf

 

If you play a lot of emulated console games on Android, then GameShelf is the perfect app to organize all your downloaded ROMs. GameShelf automatically finds the box art and description for your games with the press of a finger, and allows you to manually edit them if you want.

5. EyeEm

 

EyeEm is a photo sharing community similar to Instagram, but it offers several unique features like auto-tagging. They recently redesigned the app with version 3.0 and last week they pushed out a minor update that added support for more devices and improved scrolling. The EyeEm community continues to grow with every release, and we think this is a cool app worth checking out.

6. Shadowgun: Deadzone

 

Last week Madfinger Games released the open beta for Shadowgun: Deadzone and it’s the only game that made our weekly Top 10 list. The shooter is free to play, but it requires a device with a Tegra 3 chip during the beta period. Even in this early stage, it was already one of the most fun games I have played for Android. It is a must download if you have a Tegra 3 tablet like the Nexus 7, and hopefully it will be coming to more devices soon.

7. Morning Bird Alarm Clock

 

Last week I shared this app in the Android Rookies column because my brother Clark loves birds, and it turns out quite a few of you in the audience share his passion. This paid app will cost you $0.99, but it’s worth a shot if you are a fan of nature.

8. Sketch Guru

 

Sketch Guru allows you to capture a picture with your phone or pick one from you gallery and then customize it with 13 unique effects. This is a great app to try out if you want to add some flare to the pictures you share on social networks.

9. MyTrails

 

MyTrails is a little known app that provides offline topography maps for the outdoors enthusiast. All maps are free to download and the hardware-accelerated map drawing allows smooth and snappy display even with tens of thousands of track points. In-app purchases allow you to subscribe to high-quality, special-purpose maps.

10. TunnelBear VPN

 

TunnelBear VPN allows you to browse the Internet with privacy and experience the Internet as if you’re living in another country. TunnelBear gives you a hearty amount of free “tunneling” each and every month and you can upgrade your bear and receive unlimited tunneling and even stronger “bear-grade” encryption.

    Shadow Gun not compatible with my Galaxy Nexus.

      The final version will be compatible with non-Tegra devices.

    TunnelBear sounds enticing. I’ll have to try it out.

      It does not really work well for apps. E.g. I was unable to find BBC iplayer in the market. When I found a copy of the apk, it did not play back and gave me a region error.

      Galaxy Nexus stock : 4.1.1

        Well that stinks. That was one of my main hopes for it. Oh well, it’ll be useful anyways.

          Easiest thing to do is VPN. Setup an account (mine’s with privateinternetaccess), then in Network settings, create your VPN profile. Whenever you want to watch overseas, switch to VPN, works a treat.
          Downside is that it costs a few bucks a month, but oh my word it’s worth it.

    Lemon Wallet sounds good. I’ll give it a try.

  • MyMilan

    Ovo timer looked nice, but unfortunately it only goes up to one hour, so pretty worthless.

  • Derek R-C

    Dolphin Jetpack makes a huge difference. Great interface too.

    I don’t get Lemon Wallet. I feel like a grocery store isn’t going to accept scanning a qr code as proper payment.

    Thank you so much for featuring our Morning Bird Alarm Clock App. We are very very happy to hear that your brother Clark (by the way, please be so kind to send him our regards) and many Android and Me readers have been enjoying our app. We would like to thank you all for your kind words and for all of your kind supports. This great app wouldn’t really have taken off without your helps. So thank you very much for your kind attentions and for all the supports. We really appreciate it.
    Best Regards,
