Fresh Meat: 10 new Android apps worth checking out


New apps need lovin’ too, right? Every day there are thousands of new entries on the Google Play store, but many go unnoticed and never receive the attention they deserve. We have shown in the past that this community can discover great apps and launch them to new heights. So, we’re bringing back our weekly column Fresh Meat that highlights new apps with less than 100k installs. Browse our new Android app picks below and let us know which ones you enjoy.



Pitch: Saga is the easy way to keep track of where you go and what you do with no need to check in. Live your life, and let Saga write your digital autobiography. Saga is the automatic lifelogging app for everyone. Download Saga and start building your lifelog today, with next to no manual input from you.




Pitch: Contactive unites the functionality of your address book with the knowledge of the Internet. It collects information from your social media networks, publicly available sources, and Contactive’s Global Directory to show who’s calling before you even answer the call. Always have something to talk about. Get a cheat sheet of your contacts’ latest updates in the moment that matters.


Trek Episode Guide


Pitch: The Trek Episode Guide immerses Star Trekâ„¢ fans in an authentic LCARS style interface introduced in the Star Trek: The Next Generationâ„¢ television series, and provides a compendium of all Star Trek episodes and movies, with detailed plot descriptions and HD images (where available).




Pitch: Bringing you daily free apps plus discounts up to 90% off. AppGratis is free and finally on Android! Top rated worldwide, already loved by over 10+ million iOS users.


We Heart It


Pitch: Discover inspiration and images you love every day! We Heart It is the place to find the most beautiful images of everything you love, inspired by millions of people from around the world! Save a collection of quotes, view pictures that match your mood, find images for an art or fashion collage, and get updated on news through images of the latest styles, for free!




Pitch: WeatherSignal lets you use your cell phone as a mobile weather station. The app makes use of native phone sensors to display local atmospheric readings, which are then displayed on our live-updating weather map. By using WeatherSignal you are becoming a part of the most ambitious weather crowdsourcing project in the world — helping to record weather patterns on a more localised level than ever before.




Pitch: Schemes is a simple tool that allows you to send scheduled messages via SMS, Facebook, Twitter or Email (Gmail only!). Whether you want to send that happy birthday text at midnight (or a minute before midnight if that’s your thing), Tweet about your favourite time of the day, make a Facebook status without your friends on the other side of the world missing it, or send that important business email right on the hour, Schemes will do it for you!




Pitch: Your media collection is now truly portable! Stream from anywhere, it doesn’t matter where your files are stored. Upload and stream from the cloud, directly from your desktop or from the most popular cloud services. Mix your favorite tracks in custom or smart playlists, even if they are stored on different cloud sources.




Pitch: PAUL learns your preferences and creates your personalized profile. PAUL will preload the videos and songs you want BEFORE you want them, so there are no delays when you want to view them. Plus, PAUL can do all the work over WiFi only, incurring no data charges.




Pitch: Clutch combines everything you need to shop with your phone — wallet, daily deals, trending and hot products, shopping searches, personalized collections, price comparisons and gifting — with the ability to make purchases and deliver them anywhere, with a few taps. Clutch is the only mobile app where you can get the best deals, give the best gifts, and discover and share these finds with your friends and family in a single place.

    Would Hangouts be considered a new app or just an update???

    • CTown

      It’s definitely a new app. However, It “upgrades” (in order to replace) Google Talk which could be why it s confusing some people.

      • Steve Barry

        Dear Android and Me – ^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^ is the only example you should need to implement account only comments. For the love of everything holy, our friend ‘guest’ never contributes anything worthwhile anyway.

  • killrgummibear

    how about SF Launcher Beta? it’s a great home replacement/launcher, especially if you like to customize your phone. it goes great with the Stark ADW theme. here’s my homescreen if you wanna take a look.

    • kendroid

      Where can i find this launcher at I want it

  • mkstvns

    Bit of a boring week for new apps, apart from Hangouts.

    • raichleb

      To each his own, I suppose, but I kind of like these. I’m gonna try at least 4 of them.

  • nikhilverma

    I think there are some pretty useful apps in here.

  • donger

    Don’t know which app to try first.

  • Vincent Armstead

    These are really great apps for all the android apps which are effective.

  • BlakStar

  • jonstle

    Thanks for the list!

    I am planning on trying out contactive to see how it works. I work freelance so I have a lot of contacts that I do not know that well. It could help me by giving me some insight into the caller just before I answer the call. Although I think it is only a matter of time until this feature comes with stock android.

    I also a considering Weather Signal… curiosity may get the best of me to see if it really works.

  • MJ

    Is there anything for android like appshopper for iOS? I love setting it up and the website emails me everyday with which apps on my wishlist are on sale or free. Apps are often on sake on iTunes for a day or two and I can download. Doesn’t sound like app gratis does that. Amazon already does a free app a day

  • scubabum

    Hummm, so-so apps this time. May be the next bunch will be better!

  • Jameswalt
