Energy Ring - Battery indicator for Galaxy S10/e!

Android Police coverage: Energy Ring wraps a battery indicator around the Galaxy S10's hole punch camera

This year the trend of camera hole cutouts in smartphone displays has become quite popular, so it was inevitable that someone would find a way to adjust how the screen behaves around those holes. Energy Ring is a new app that can place a battery ring around the camera cutout of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10e. You can even customize the ring's colors to better create a battery meter that can be easily read at a glance.

Photo Map for Google Photos (via Google Drive)

Android Police coverage: Photo Map lets you explore your Google Photos on a world map

Photo Map for Google Photos is a nifty little app that can connect to your Google Photos account through Google Drive to then display your pictures on a map to show the precise locations they were taken. While I can't think of many reasons why someone would want to do this on a daily basis, it sure is cool to look through for a few minutes.

substratum lite theme engine

Android Police coverage: Substratum Lite will offer essential theming features in a smaller package

The substratum lite theme engine offers what its name implies. This is indeed an app that provides a lite version of everyone's favorite theming engine, and while substratum still won't work on Android 9 devices or higher, it's a solid choice for those still using the engine to theme their older devices.

Aegis Authenticator

There are already more than a few authenticator apps to choose from on the Play Store, but what sets Aegis Authenticator apart from the competitions is its ability to simultaneously support the fingerprint sensor and a password unlock for a single sign-in. This way you have an extra layer of security at your fingertips should you ever require it.

Twenty

New social media apps pop up on the Play Store almost daily, and Twenty is the latest app designed to capitalize on our nature to connect with people. More specifically, this is an app that allows you to see who is around you that's also using the app, which ideally makes it easy to find people that are down to hang out. Of course, this all hinges on the number of people currently using the app, and since this is a new release, there aren't going to be many.

BNEA Events

BNEA Events is a simple app from Bandai Namco that contains all of the information you would ever need about when and where Bandai Namco plans to make an appearance.

Odd Alarm

Odd Alarm is a ridiculous alarm app that plays awkward commonplace sounds to wake you up. Mainly it works just like any other alarm app, but its draw comes not from the app's functionality, but from the wacky sounds you'll hear when Odd Alarm wakes you up.

Six In A Row - for irregular schedules

Six In A Row popped up on my radar thanks to a post on Reddit. It's a calendar app that was built from the ground up for people with unusual schedules. The idea is that many people in this day and age often work irregular schedules, so if you happen to live in a family with multiple people that suffer from this issue, it can be tough for everyone to sync up. The developers of Six In A Row aim to solve this problem through a UI that makes it easy to activate regular events and schedule them with a few taps. Just keep in mind that this is an app that requires a monthly subscription, though you do get a free month to try it out.
