5 best mobile apps to try in November 2017

Airconsole

Do you miss good old times of loading your Sega or NES and playing simplistic arcade games with your friends? Now, with Airconsole and some technical fiddling you can easily do that!

Just invite a couple of friends with smartphones, download your apps, go to www.airconsole.com on a Desktop, Tablet or AndroidTV, and there you go!

The screen of your larger device will now be the console screen and the console itself, with several minimalistic multiplayer games. All the smartphones at the same time are turned into touchscreen gamepads, which you and your friends will use for multiplayer fun.

The games are web-based and don’t require purchasing any additional hardware. The list of games is constantly evolving and the apps get more polished over time, so you and your friends will be able to have fun at a couple of home parties at least.

Notin

Notin is a very clean and simple tool for creating notifications on your phone. You just type in what you’d like to do in a special widget on your Home screen, and it immediately goes where it theoretically belongs to – to the notification panel.

The reminder doesn’t pop up or rings, it just sits there until you swipe it away – a clearly effective way to work without any bells and whistles.

Tinycards

Remember Duolingo? If you struggle to recall, it was one of the most efficient apps for learning foreign languages. It provided users with interactive word cards and several games to make quick progress in remembering words.

Now the creators of Duolingo went one step further and applied the same psychological technique to learning basically anything. Inside the TinyCards app, you’ll find custom decks to learn country capitals, vocabulary in different languages, history, anatomy, constellations, hat styles, you name it!

You can also import all the words from your Duolingo collection to keep them fresh in your memory.

SMS Organizer

SMS Organizer is a new app by none other than Microsoft. It is free and helps users widen the functionality of their standard SMS app, which always receives too little attention from Android developers nowadays.

SMS organizer filters out all the spam, create Reminder cards with quick actions and deep links, detects OTP, supports FREE SMS, quick replies and much more. It also implements machine learning algorithms that help you categorize all your SMS into categories like Personal, Transactional and Promotional, much like email clients do today.

You will be reminded of upcoming trains, flights, buses, movies and bill payments using information in the SMS through timely reminder cards and notifications with action buttons like pay bill, book cab etc.

Also, there are contextual actions like check PNR status, check Flight status and do Check-in directly on the cards for quick access.You can also create a custom reminder to help you remember important items.

The app is built to work perfectly offline, without an Internet connection. All classification and reminder creation happen on the device itself.

Hermit

In the world of spacious smartphone memory the developers don’t really try to make apps lightweight. They provide a ton of functions most people never use, and an average app now takes at least 50MB on your device.

Hermit, on the other hand, takes about 2MB on your phone and lets you save space by launching Lite web versions of other popular apps. Like Facebook, for instance.

Plus, you can browse faster, save data, block ads, protect your privacy, browse in Night Mode, Reader Mode, and customize your Lite Apps with over 20 different settings for every Lite App!
