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. Read More
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.
So when Google released its list of Best Apps of 2015 and we noticed some generic and automatically generated recommendations in it, we thought we could try harder. Read More
Google added Drawing Mode to Keep at the end of October and the couple of updates since then seem to focus on fixing bugs. The recent 501 update did make a small but useful addition: there is now an overflow menu in Drawing Mode with links to Delete and Send (i.e. share) your doodles to other apps. Read More
Every Monday Android Police publishes a list of new and notable apps or games to the site. It works out to around a hundred new apps a month, and over a thousand by this time in the year. If you wanted to, you could go back and look through all of them on the roundup page... but you probably don't. And why would you, when we've already done the legwork for you?
Following in no particular order are the Android Police team's picks for our favorite new Android apps of 2015. There are some predictable Google apps in there, but most of them are either really great tools for something that's already available or innovative new takes on their respective implementations.

It's shopping season, and just because you can't gift apps doesn't mean developers aren't hoping to lure you in with some deals. If you're already spending big, why not grab some apps too? There are a ton of apps and games on sale (but mostly games), and you can find all the good stuff below. Read More
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.
Christmas is coming, but many family members won't get to spend this time face to face. Millions will be placing phone calls, and another large number will be hopping on Skype. The latest update adds more ways to integrate Skype into your holiday plans. Read More
Netflix is a pretty straightforward service, but sometimes things go wrong. Whether it's trouble with accounts, billing, or stuff failing to stream despite a strong Internet connection, occasionally folks need to ask for help.
The latest update lets you place calls directly inside of the app. This was a feature we saw listed as "coming soon" in a previous changelog. Read More
