Energy Notch - camera notch as battery indicator!

Android Police coverage: Energy Notch, from the maker of Energy Ring, debuts for OnePlus 6T

Energy Notch comes from the same dev that created Energy Bar and Energy Ring, two useful apps for unconventionally displaying your battery level. Much like Energy Ring, you can display your battery level around the notch on your OnePlus 6T, instead of a punch-hole camera. It's a simple app, but it works well, and it's highly customizable, should you choose to unlock the entirety of its features through an in-app purchase (that only exists as a way to donate funds to the dev). Best of all, IJP is so incredibly responsive the developer has already added support for the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7T, Xiaomi POCO F1, Redmi Note 7/S, and Motorola One Power to the app, with further device support incoming shortly.

Peacock TV

Android Police coverage: NBC's new Peacock streaming service takes flight today

For a brief few years, it looked as though streaming would save us from the evils of cable TV, but then all of the networks decided to offer their own streaming services, instead of everyone releasing all of their content in one place, because of money. This means NBC is the latest to join the ranks of stand-alone video streaming services with the launch of Peacock TV. Some free content is included, though if you want to get the most out of this app, you'll have to subscribe to the service, which will run users $5 a month.

Motion Cam

Motion Cam is an early access release, and it's designed to capture RAW images from your phone's camera in order to store them for later use. This way, you can make composite images out of your favorites instead of relying on an algorithm to do it for you.

Autofill Changer

Autofill Changer is a simple tool for changing your autofill provider, a feature that's now baked into the Android OS. Seeing that many Android devices aren't up to date with the current Android version, Autofill Changer is here to help. So say you're using an Amazon Fire tablet and would like to change your autofill provider, this is the app that can do just that. It's a niche release, but I'm sure it will come in handy for those on older devices.

Shnap - Visual Search for Fashion

Shnap is a shopping app that can locate items by simply taking pictures of them. So say a friend has a hot new pair of shoes, but they're not willing to share the store where they were purchased. You can simply snap a quick pic of the shoes in question, and this app will inform you of all the different stores that carry them. It's a convenient way to discover products, though it's not like this tech hasn't been around for a while. At the very least, Shnap offers a pleasant UI, which should help to keep things simple.

Discover from Facebook

Discover from Facebook appears to have been released in Peru, and so even though the app recently popped up on the Play Store, the majority of people out there won't be able to use it yet. Essentially this is an internet browsing app for developing countries, and so as long as you own a SIM card from a participating mobile operator, you can browse the web for free, though it appears people are limited to 10mb, which isn't much.
