With June almost at an end, here are our top five picks for the best apps that debuted this month (or got a major refresh during June). These new Android apps totally rule.
Learn more about this app in the video above.
We’ve talked a bit about Secret in the past, so it’s not exactly a new app. The Android version of Secret gets included on this list because a recent update made the app feel like an entirely new experience for some users. Version 4 of Secret for Android dropped on June 18, and the app now supports even more secrets around you in Explore. Additionally, speed, reliability, and battery life improvements were made.
For those of you not in the know, Secret is a confessional app where people share secrets about their personal or work lives. The app lets you divulge your innermost thoughts anonymously, so it’s a great way to vent.
2. Singles AroundMe GPS Dating
Get a peek at this dating app in the video above.
Singles AroundMe is a dating app based on the belief that chance encounters with the people who just happen to be nearby can lead to lasting connections (the founder met his wife in just such a chance encounter many years ago.)
This dating app lets you find cool people near you, based on your GPS. It is open to people of any gender or sexual orientation. The app has been featured in USA Today and on CBS News. As of this writing, the most recent version of the app is 1.0.30, which debuted in mid-June.
Check out a review of this cool app in the video above.
Don’t be fooled by the “i” prefix of this app: this is an Android app through and through. If you want to be inspired by sex positions from exotic places, iKamasutra is a great introduction to advanced erotic positions.
You can shake your phone to see a random position, or choose from over 100 positions based on factors like intimacy or strength required. There’s nothing more erotic than the Kama Sutra, and this app is way more fun to use than a boring old book on the subject. Plus, you can see sex positions from some of your favorite Hollywood movies.
Without question, the biggest event in June was the World Cup. theScore offers a ton of great features for the World Cup, along with other major sporting events. You can receive free Push Alerts about major goals or key moments, or just stay on top of breaking news about your favorite players.
One great feature that will appeal to soccer fans is the Shot Tracker feature, which will let you see exactly how a goal was scored. Even after the World Cup wraps up on July 13, this app will still appeal to sports fans of all stripes…and you can expect big updates in the future that coincide with upcoming sporting events.
5. SwiftKey Keyboard
Between Swype, Fleksy, and SwiftKey, there are a lot of keyboard apps vying for your attention. SwiftKey sticks out for its robust learning features and user-friendly interface. A big update on June 18 introduced a ton of new features, including the SwiftKey Store, with 30+ new themes and counting. Additional new features include Emoji prediction and learning, as well as a new prediction engine.
SwiftKey has been called a “mind reader,” as the app is capable of learning your writing style based on your messages from your Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Yahoo, and SMS. Your language can be further enhanced daily by using Trending Phrases, which are based on current news and trending Twitter topics. This keyboard app may be a little too smart for its own good.
