COVIDWISE

Android Police coverage: Virginia is the first state to launch a COVID-19 contact tracing app using Google and Apple's API

It's official, the US now has a COVID-19 contact tracing app that's finally using Google and Apple's API, but it's only available in Virginia because each state has to come up with its own solution. Of course, if you happen to live in Virginia, starting this week, you can take COVIDWISE for a spin so that you can quickly receive notifications of exposure. As expected, the app works through bluetooth, so it will drain your battery just like any other app that uses bluetooth, and yes, GPS permissions are required.

Secure Clips - Keeps clipboard and notes private

Secure Clips is a private clipboard and notes app that can't be read by other apps. So unlike the default Android clipboard, you can rest assured that your clipboard's content will remain private if you use Secure Clips. All you have to do is copy to this app specifically through the Android share menu, and you'll no longer have to worry about apps potentially spying on your clipboard.

LitePass: to the Lite version!

LitePass: to the Lite version is a unique and frequently-updated release that offers a list of all "lite" apps. You see, thanks to burgeoning smartphone territories, many app developers have created lite apps that work better with limited data and low-end devices, and it isn't easy to keep track of these apps unless you happen to live in a territory where they are offered. In comes LitePass, an app that offers a categorized list of all lite apps, all so people can find these apps a little easier. So while this is a niche release, it's a helpful one if you're a lite app fanatic.

ScreenHive

NHScreenHive is a new wellness app that specifically illustrates the amount of time you've used your device by continually showing you a timer on your screen. This way, people will have to acknowledge the length of time they use their phones throughout the day, ideally convincing some to cut down on their use.

Skip by Jobcase

Skip by Jobcase is an early access release, and if you couldn't tell by its name, it's a job-hunting app. The idea behind this release is that instead of actively searching for jobs, you'll post a resume, and then the jobs will come to you. To get started, just fill out a single application form, and then the app will connect you with the employers who require your skills.

NHS COVID-19

NHS COVID-19 is another corona tracing app, but this one comes from the NHS. This means the app is being trialed in England, though only with selected users and communities, so most people can't use this app just yet. Like all of the other tracing apps, you'll receive notifications if you've been in proximity with an infected person. You can even report any COVID-19 systems in the app to receive a free test in the mail, should you start feeling under the weather.

Take Care of Yourself

Take Care of Yourself is an app that comes from Philips Consumer Lifestyle, and while at first, I had no idea why Philips was so interested in helping people with their hygiene, I then remembered Philips offers a bunch of shaving products, which is probably why this app focuses so much on skincare, of all things. So if you're looking for advice from the latest conglomerate to throw its hat in the self-care app ring, Philips has your back with the launch of Take Care of Yourself.

Bazaart: Photo Editor & Graphic Design

Bazaart: Photo Editor & Graphic Design is apparently a popular photo editor on iOS, and now that the app has made its way to Android, users can take advantage of yet another photo editing app designed for sharing photos on social media. The app is currently in early access, but it's already amassed over 100,000 installs, so it would seem people have been eager to get their hands on this release.

SlideScan - Slide Scanner App

SlideScan - Slide Scanner App offers precisely what it says in the tin. This is a slide scanning app, where you can take photos of your slides in order to digitize them. So, while this will be a painstaking process, especially if you happen to own a bunch of slides, it's nice to know you won't have to pay for extra equipment or for a business to scan your slides if you'd like to bring your aging pics into the modern age.

DJ it! - Music Mixer

DJ it is a music mixing application for aspiring Disk Jockeys. While I doubt anyone is going to be making professional music with this app, it works great as an educational tool to learn the ropes of mixing music. Think of this app as DJing with training wheels, and you'll see the appeal of this release. Plus, it's pretty fun to mix up a few tracks on the fly when out and about, which you're not going to be doing with your physical tables unless you regularly drive them everywhere you go.

Paperless Post Flyer Invitation Maker, Text Invite

Paperless Post Flyer Invitation Maker, Text Invite is an annoyingly long name for what is essentially a greeting card design app. With this app, you can design your own cards for events like birthdays and anniversaries, and you can even take advantage of videos and gifs in order to go with a design that's animated. You know, for that extra level of pop.

Manufacturer And Tie-In Apps

TeamViewer Universal Add-On

Android Police coverage: TeamViewer now supports full remote control of Pixel, Xiaomi, and Oppo devices

As the Play Store listing states, this is not a stand-alone app, but a plugin for the TeamViewer QuickSupport app that previously did not support Pixel and Nexus devices. Now that the Universal Add-On is here, users who previously could not integrate the QuickSupport app on their Google devices now can. Of course, what's amusing about this release is that the dev made it a point to state this isn't a stand-alone title, and yet there are still reviews on the Play Store stating that they can't open this app.
