4 Best New Android Apps for August
August 2016 has been a great month for new Android app releases. Our four favorites get you moving, armchair traveling, and exploring your artistic side.
Back in June, we told you about four of the best new apps you couldn’t miss that month. Two months have passed, and hundreds — if not thousands — of new Android apps have been released. To help you cut through the app clutter, we’ve chosen four of our favorite can’t-miss apps released this month:
Tinctures combines text with simply-coded pictures. Tinctures offers lots of different pictures made from ASCII and Unicode, adding pre-written text above or below a simple drawing. You can share the pictures and words through text messaging apps — just copy and paste the Tinctures. Add your favorite Tinctures to a list to find and send them more easily.
Verne: The Himalayas
This app puts Google’s 3-D images of the Himalayas mountains to good use. With a yeti named Verne as your guide, you and your kids can explore beautiful images of snow-capped mountains, lakes, and fields. Watch Verne walking, skating, or even paragliding through some pretty spectacular panoramic views.
Everyone loves Prisma, the Android app that puts a filter on your photos to make them look like they’ve been drawn by an artist. The only problem with Prisma is that it can’t turn your videos into similar hand-drawn works of art. Artisto fills that gap, letting you give your videos a painting-like effect.
Designed to get you moving, Movesum gives you lots of ways to motivate yourself to be more active. Ultimately, Movesum is designed to let you know how much activity you need to eat the way you do. For example, if you have a slice of pizza, Movesum lets you know how much you need to exercise to work off those calories. Movesum also lets you set daily goals and sends you notifications to help you stick to your guns.

PSafe’s Memory Booster helps you better use your storage space and optimize your data usage to speed up your device. PSafe is free and downloads automatically, so add it to your list of the best apps to download this month as well.
