Another month, another incredible showing of new apps in the Play Store. It's taken us a while to narrow down the selections this time, but we promise they're worth the wait. Out of all the new apps we saw last month, we've compiled a short list of just five of our favorites, plus some runners up that didn't quite make the cut but are still worth checking out.

Without further ado, let's get started.

In 2009, I was an iPhone user. I had been watching Android intently, but none of the hardware really appealed to me. As the end of the year grew near, I felt the itch to get out of Apple's walled garden. I didn't hate my iPhone, but I knew it wasn't the right platform for me. I bought an HTC Hero, and I still pride myself on having the commonsense to return it a few weeks later and buy the Motorola Droid.

Google Glass is neat, but it's currently short on third-party apps because Google hasn't opened up the Glassware app ecosystem yet. While we wait for that to happen, the data sync service Zapier has added support for Glass that connects it to over 200 online services.

Zapier is based around triggers and actions. If you've ever used ITTT, it's a similar idea. Each "Zap" is basically used to make two services interact.

Apparently there was some sort of iThing announced today. It does apps and stuff, which is nice. But you don't have that kind of mobile thing – you've got the other one. That doesn't mean you shouldn't have apps and stuff. We have some sales to help you out with that.

The Roku app is great for controlling a Roku set-top box, but that's what you have a remote for, right? The app previously included audio and picture streaming from Android devices, but now it goes one step further. The new update allows Android devices to stream video directly to the player over WiFi.

The 'Play on Roku' tab in the interface has a new entry for videos, which should pull up all the compatible videos on your device organized by folder.

The week is just getting underway, but perk up. There are deals to be had, and you wouldn't want to miss out on those just because you're tired and grouchy. Look, just have some coffee and read on.

2013-09-08 22_32_57-Dynamic Keyboard! The Android Keyboard That Changes As You Type! - Preview - You

Most Android keyboards have gotten pretty good at figuring out what word you're trying to type. Anyone that lives with SwiftKey day-to-day can certainly attest to that. But is the suggestion bar really putting that data to use? The folks behind Dynamic Keyboard have a different approach. This keyboard, set to launch on September 14th, alters the size of keys it believes you are more likely to tap.

There's yet another streaming music option on Android, and it comes courtesy of Microsoft. An Xbox Music app is set to debut today in Google Play. It will provide access to unlimited streaming to Xbox Music Pass subscribers, but the initial release is a little light on features.

As Cameron explained in his latest "What We Use" entry, technology can change a lot in just one year. Around this time last year, I was running with a 2012 Nexus 7, a Galaxy Tab 10.1, and an Evo LTE. All of those devices have changed since then, as have my favorite apps and other gadgets. The family of devices I use has grown and evolved significantly since last October, so I thought it may be fun to detail just what I use to get through a normal day.
