[Hands On] Popular Lip-Sync Music Video App, Triller, Comes To Google Play - It's Actually Incredibly Fun To Play With

Triller. That's a silly sounding name and a really dumb idea for an app.

Those were my first thoughts when I saw this app pop up on the Android Police to-do list. Triller is the kind of app I assumed would appeal only to narcissistic, college-attending, plaid-wearing, hipsters born after the year 1995. The fact that it launched as an iOS exclusive back in July, and this promo video didn't help that perception. It turns out I was wrong, but I'll get to that in a minute.

The concept of the app is pretty simple. First, pick one of the songs featured by the app, or one from your own music library.

Jide Remix Mini Android Desktop PC Review: Interesting Software Let Down By Bargain-Bin Hardware

Android is many things. A mobile operating system, a tool for smart watches and set-top boxes, any much more. But one of the things it most certainly is not is a desktop OS... at least in its current form. That said, it's also the world's biggest piece of open-source software, so when Jide decided to make what it calls "the world's first true Android PC," they were more than free to do so. Whether or not it's a good idea is a subject for discussion... and this review.

Android Police's Team Picks: Our Favorite And Most Used Apps In 2015

We love apps. We talk about them every day here at Android Police, we write biweekly roundups featuring all the cool new apps that are getting released, we choose our top 7 new apps every month, and once in a while we tackle a specific category of apps and show you some interesting choices in it. Apps are an intricate part of what we do here and how we use our devices in general, they're inextricable from our Android usage.

Google added Drawing Mode to Keep at the end of October and the couple of updates since then seem to focus on fixing bugs.

KeyMe Launches On Android So You Can Easily Copy Your Keys, And Probably Keys That Aren't Yours Too

KeyMe promises to solve the problem of locking yourself out of the house by keeping your keys in the cloud. That sounds very modern and cool, but what does it mean? KeyMe is a key saving and duplication app that just launched on Android. It lets you scan keys, order duplicates, and even have them printed while you wait at automated kiosks. I'm sure no one would ever use this for nefarious purposes, though. Not at all.
