Adobe Premiere Rush — Video Editor

Android Police coverage: Adobe Premiere Rush launches on Android for fast and easy video editing on the go

The release of Adobe Premiere Rush on Android is indeed a welcome one. Sure, there are already many dependable video editors on the Play Store already, but how many of them can boast seamless support as you jump from a phone to a tablet to a PC? Well, that's precisely what Adobe Premiere Rush offers, which will hopefully make for some strong competition in the mobile video editing game.

If you take a lot of screenshots on your Android device, you may have noticed that sorting through them can be a pain if you're using a default file explorer.

Steam Chat

Android Police coverage: Steam decouples Chat from the main mobile app, adds fresh design and new features

Valve has apparently decoupled the chat function from its primary mobile app to release a new app that's focused only on communication. It offers a cleaner UI and a boatload of more features, so if you've been looking for a way to easily communicate with your Steam friends and were nonplussed with the older app, you're going to want to check out Steam Chat posthaste.

MIUI-ify - Notification Shade

The larger our smartphones become, the harder it is to reach the very top of the screen. This is something that can make it difficult to interact with the traditional notification drawer in Android. Luckily an enterprising developer has created an app that can move this info to the bottom of your screen, and it's called MIUI-ify - Notification Shade. Not only can you move your notification bar to the bottom of your screen, but you can also choose your own quick settings tiles as well as set your own theme.

Luminary - Premium Podcast App

If you're a podcast fanatic, then you've probably tried a few different podcatchers on Android. Most people have already chosen their favorite app, but then in comes a new contender called Luminary. It's described as a premium podcast app, though really it's a podcatcher that offers a subscription service for the majority of its useful features, which seems like a bit much to ask when podcatching is often something that can be done for free.

Pocket Mode: Prevent accidental clicks

If you've ever stuck your phone in your pocket, to then have your battery drain as the screen continually turns itself on, then Pocket Mode may offer the solution to your problem. The app is designed to lock your phone securely so that the screen won't turn on without your express permission by hovering your hand over the device's proximity sensor. This way you won't ever have to worry again about accidental clicks when your phone is in your pocket and secured through Pocket Mode.

Live Wallpapers

Betta Fish Live Wallpaper FREE

It's been a while since I've covered a live wallpaper app, and this week I'm happy to announce that I have something that looks fantastic. It's called Betta Fish Live Wallpaper, and through this app, you can create gorgeous animated wallpapers that contain a very colorful Betta fish. Thanks to the black background of the wallpaper, the colors of the fish will pop off your screen, especially if you own a device with an AMOLED screen.
