[App Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Apps Of June 2015

June didn't see any huge releases in terms of Android apps, though we did finally get a publicly-available version of the Kodi Media Center, and Photoshop for Android (yes, yet another version of Photoshop).

Here in no particular order are the best seven new apps from June, along with some honorable mentions.

Zynga Announces Drag Racing Sim CSR2, Coming To Android Later This Year

The original CSR Racing racked up over 130 million downloads, becoming one of the top free-to-play games on mobile devices. It's no surprise that Zynga snapped up the developer, NaturalMotion last year for half a billion dollars. Now, the sequel has just been announced, and it's predictably titled CSR2.

Like its predecessor, this game will focus exclusively on the drag racing aspect with a ton of officially licensed cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and others. It's very, very pretty, but the gameplay is also quite simple. That's the formula that made the first one so popular, I suppose.

CSR2 will be soft launching in some regions over the next few weeks, probably on iOS first.

[Deal Alert] Animated Film 'All Creatures Big And Small' Makes Its US Debut Exclusively On Google Play, And You Can Watch It For Free

Ooops! Noah is gone... but fortunately you can still see what happens to the animals on the Ark. The 3D animated film All Creatures Big and Small is now debuting exclusively in the Play Store, and you can download the HD film in its entirety for free.

Selection_002

This light-hearted movie asks the question of what happened to the animals that didn't make it on board Noah's Ark. It follows Finny and Leah as they try to survive the flood and find safety on the tallest mountain. Meanwhile, their parents attempt to turn the Ark around and rescue their kids. The subject matter may be Biblical, but the tone is hardly preachy.

Sword Of Xolan, A Ghosts 'N Goblins-Style Platformer, Mixes Awesome Animation With Great Features

Look, I've got nothing against the pixelated graphical style, sometimes erroneously referred to as "8-bit." But for the last few years it's often been used as a crutch for developers who can't be bothered to make truly good 2D graphics. That doesn't apply to Sword of Xolan, the latest game from developer Alper Sarikaya of Manuganu fame. The environments, enemies, and main character have enough definition that you can actually see what's happening on screen, and the excellent animations make the world come to life in ways that developers could only dream of back in the old SNES days.

Aside from being a visual treat, Sword of Xolan is a joy to play.

United Kingdom Police Seize Android-Powered Set Top Boxes Pre-Loaded With Pirate Video Apps

Birds gonna fly, fish gonna swim, dogs gonna bark, and unscrupulous people are going to find ways to steal digital content. Video piracy is more or less unstoppable (though reasonable prices and more convenient streaming have taken it down a peg), but if you brazenly sell gadgets with the sole intention of stealing TV shows and movies, expect a visit from Johnny Law soon enough. Several shady retailers in the United Kingdom have reason to reflect on this today, after police raided multiple locations selling "Android TV" set-top boxes designed more or less as piracy machines.

TorrentFreak reports that raids yesterday and earlier in June resulted in the seizure of hundreds of cheap white box Android devices, mostly running AOSP Android adapted for television use (and probably not the more legitimate Android TV software), loaded with illegal apps and tools for streaming and downloading pirated video.

Solid Explorer 2.0 Is Finally Out After A Lengthy Beta Test, New Paid Plugins Available Too

Solid Explorer is one of the most popular file managers on Android, but the app has never been particularly attractive. It's much improved today, though, with the release of Solid Explorer v2.0. I know what you're thinking, is that really just happening now? Well, it's been in beta for more than six months.

[APK Teardown] YouTube v10.25 Hints At Voice-Activated Playback Controls, Shows Signs Of Life For Ad-Free Subscription, And More

After the launch of Music Key in November, we've had good reason to expect quite a bit from YouTube. We've seen things like 60 fps live streaming, 360-degree videos with cardboard support, and big updates to the Kids and Creator Studio apps – and that's just some of the stuff from the last two months. We also know there's plenty still to come, particularly an ad-free subscription model. The latest update doesn't seem to deliver any new features, not unless Google is planning to flip a switch server-side, but it gives a few hints about what to expect in the future.

YouTube Outlines Ten Upcoming Features In A Creator Preview Video

YouTube is just over ten years old. That's about the time that a global and ubiquitous web service oughta straighten up and stream right, throw off adolescent comforts and maybe start considering some branch-off services, like Music or Games. The development team has decided to release news of upcoming features in that time-honored and totally not aggravating format, the video list. The following is specifically for "creators" (read: people who upload regularly and/or try to make money with videos), but some of the information is interesting for mobile users.

If you don't have four and a half minutes to spend watching for the new stuff, here's a breakdown in the old-fashioned and completely dead text format.
