Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android applications that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous two weeks or so. This week I have a beautiful tasks app from Moleskin, a budgeting app that supplies on-demand access to a team of financial geniuses, and a LEGO-branded video editor for kids. So without further ado, here are the most notable Android apps released in the last two weeks.

Please wait for this page to load in full in order to see the widgets, which include ratings and pricing info.

Apps

Actions by Moleskine

Android Police coverage: Hands-on: Popular to-do manager Moleskin Actions comes to Android in select countries

Actions by Moleskine was recently released on the Play Store for a few select regions including the US. It's basically a tasks app from the well-known notebook maker, complete with uniquely Moleskine aesthetic, intuitive gesture navigation, reminders, and log activities. One thing to keep in mind is that this is a tasks app that requires a subscription, so you're going to have to come up with $2 per month or $12 per year if you'd like to use this release past its one-week trial period.

THE LEGO® MOVIE 2™ Movie Maker

THE LEGO MOVIE 2 Movie Maker offers what its name implies. This is a simple movie-making app designed to be used by children so that they can create their own animated LEGO scenes at home. While it may not be the best video editor on Android, it's still a free tool that's easy to learn, which makes it a solid choice for kids who are only just starting to learn the movie-making craft.

Pollination Network

Alright, this listing is pretty niche, though I have to admit it's offers something I've never seen before. The aptly-named Pollination Network is an app for beekeepers and farmers. It connects growers with beekeepers so that both groups can communicate and beneficially share information so that the pollination of crops and flourishing beehives go hand in hand.

App Tiles

App Tiles is a nifty little shortcut app that adds the ability to create your own app shortcuts in your quick settings pulldown. It's as simple as choosing six of your favorite apps and dragging them to your shortcuts so that they're always ready to be launch from a convenient area. This way you can still navigate to these shortcuts without leaving the app you are currently using.

NomadPhone - Use Your Number Abroad

NomadPhone makes it easy to use your US or Canadian phone number while abroad, and it works over wifi and cellular data. The first seven days are free, but then you'll have to cough up a $9.99 per month to continue using the service.

National Geographic

I'm surprised it has taken this long to get an official National Geographic app, but it's finally here, so let's dig in. This is an app that serves as a kind of companion to the magazine. You can expect to find more than a few interesting articles that cover a wide selection of topics, and you can even choose the topics you are most interest in so that they are always surfaced to the top of your reading list.

Razer Camera 2 is the Play Store release for the camera app in the latest Razer phone. It was placed there so that it can be easily updated by the manufacturer instead of having to rely on the carries to push out an OTA update. If you own the Razer Phone 2, you should already have the app installed, and if you don't own the device, you don't need to worry about this listing.
