The Android version of Secret was last updated on May 31, making June a great time to try out this app if you are a newbie. The app lets you divulge your innermost thoughts anonymously, so it’s a great way to vent.
2. Ultimate G3 Launcher Theme
With the LG G3 due to hit the US and Europe in about a month’s time, the time is right to grab the Ultimate G3 Launcher Theme.
Updated on June 1, Ultimate G3 Launcher Theme was inspired by the latest flagship LG device. It includes a completely custom-designed icon pack, wallpapers, dock bars, folder enhancements, and full launcher elements. This launcher will tide you over until you can get your hands on the real thing.
3. Hot or Not for Android
People of a certain age remember when Hot or Not was just an ugly old website. These days, the Hot or Not experience is a lot more sleek. The Android version of this hottie judgement app was updated at the tail end of May, making June a great time to give this app a first (or second) look.
4. Fronto: Cash Making Lockscreen
Fronto is a lockscreen app that lets you earn points for completing certain tasks, such as reading an article, following someone on social media, or downloading a game.
Swiping right will bring you right to your home screen. Swiping left will take you to a mobile webpage, or to Google Play, depending on the type of content shown on your lock screen. It’s a cool way to earn a little extra cash, and stay current on news, entertainment, celebs, and tech.
Check out the CNET video above to learn all about the IFTTT Android app.
IFTTT is an app for automating your life. Using basic “If this, then that” rules, you can program your phone to automatically complete certain tasks. You can use it to set conditions in your home based on time or location (assuming you have some cool connected devices).
Recent updates to IFTTT’s functionality include a Fitbit channel. Some of the most interesting “recipes” you can set up with IFTTT include automated Fitbit tracking in Google Sheets, getting a text when you get an email marked “urgent,” or automatically sending a SMS to someone after you miss their phone call.
