3 Android apps that you shouldn’t miss this week – Weekly App Roundup


Here are another 3 useful Android apps for your Android device.


Google has finally made its great iOS keyboard app available on Android. With Gboard, you can quickly run a Google search right from the keyboard and insert the results into a conversation. Other features include a dedicated number row option, a multilingual mode, an improved emoji page with a search bar and a GIF screen. Gboard is not yet available on the Play Store but you can get the APK from APK Mirror.


App Switcher 2

With Android Nougat, Google added the option to quickly switch between the two recently used apps by double-tapping the recent apps button. With App Switcher 2 you can get this functionality on almost any Android device without any additional floating buttons and without root access. The app will ask you to enable the accessibility service and then you’ll be ready to go. This simple shortcut is actually a great time saver.



Hop is an easy to play arcade game where the objective is to guide a jumping ball along a course of tiles. Along the way you can collect crystals which can later be used to buy new balls. The game quickly gets really challenging as the ball accelerates and the tiles start moving from side to side. Hop also connects to Google Play Games, making it easy to compete with others or share your score.
