Welcome to our roundup of the best new Android apps that went live on the Play Store or were discovered by us in the last three weeks or so. Today I have a new money transfer app from Facebook powered by Coinbase, a photo editing and cloud storage app from Sony, and a new safety list from Google. So without further ado, here are all of the new and notable Android apps that have been released on the Play Store in the past three weeks.

Facebook has released a new digital wallet designed to allow users internationally to send and receive money securely. So far there are no fees or surcharges on exchange rates. Identities are verified through government issued IDs. Withdrawal options vary by country, however, most likely because this app uses a digital currency called USDP, which is 1: 1 based on the US dollar. While it’s nice to see there are no fees involved, inviting Facebook, in partnership with the government, to your international digital bank transfers sounds like a dubious idea. At least Coinbase seems to be involved. Remember, this is the pilot version of the app and service, so there may be a waiting list that you can sign up for.

Visual story

Sony has just released Visual Story, a cloud service app for photographers that focuses on features for those who take photos with Sony cameras. Suppose you are recording a wedding and you want to preview some photos on your phone. If you have a supported Sony camera (ILCE-1, ILCE-9M2, ILCE-7SM3, ILCE-7C, ILCE-7M3 *, ILME-FX3, ILCE-9 *, ILCE-7RM4A, ILCE-7RM4) you can These upload photos to the cloud storage in order to then use this app to download or view these photos on your Android device. You can even use this app to edit these photos to create visual stories that can then be shared with friends, family, and social media through your phone. Also, you can use this app as a photo editor with pictures taken with your phone or downloaded from the internet. So you don’t need a Sony camera to use this app, but there are plenty of features that come in handy when you do.

Well looked after – house maintenance made easy

Upkept makes it easy for you to keep track of everything in your home, e.g. For example, when you bought your appliances or when you last remodeled a bathroom. It’s a log of activities and purchases for your home, although a $ 5 monthly subscription is required which reduces the use of this app as very few want to pay monthly to save some paper notes kept in a lock could be crate anywhere. It’s a nice app, but the monthly fee is just too high for something that most people rarely use.

Inside Amazon News

Inside Amazon News is an employee app, and since Amazon has so many employees in the US and around the world, they may want to install an app that offers breaking news from the company. You can customize your news feed, receive notifications and share information with other members. Reviews have been positive so far, but it’s not like employees beat up the app if it stinks. Fortunately not, so good at Amazon to offer something valuable to all employees.

Safety hub

Security Hub is a new version of Google, although the app has been around for a while. You see, this is a new Play Store listing for a previous app that comes with Pixel phones. Now that it’s on the Play Store, Google can easily update the app without worrying about the carriers. This is more or less the security app for Pixel devices. So she’s your one stop shop to make sure your account and phone are safe.

Amazon glow

Amazon Glow is a connectivity app for Amazon’s new Glow projector video call thingamabob. Basically, this app is the way you set up an Amazon Glow, and it’s also the app you use to interact with those who are using an Amazon Glow. Say your child wants to call Grandma on the Glow. With this app, she can take the call on her Android tablet and then interact with the child via Amazon Glow on a typical Android device. That way, both parties don’t need to own an Amazon Glow projector to interact.

Philips outdoor sensor configurator

The Philips Outdoor Sensor Configurator is a shortcut app for Philips light sensors that gives users an easy way to configure their photosensitive Philips products. More or less you don’t need this app unless you need to configure Philips multi-sensor nodes, and since this listing is in the Play Store, Philips can easily update the app in case users run into bugs or other problems .

Health services

Health Services is a new version from Google and is intended for those who use the Galaxy Watch4. This app should already be installed on these devices, and this new entry is there so that Google can easily update the app without having to worry about a manufacturer update. So far, the reviews have been bad, which is due to the fact that this tracker keeps failing. So it looks like updates are actually needed, which is why it’s a good thing Google listed the app on the Play Store.
