5 Android apps that you shouldn’t miss this month – January 2017


The first month of 2017 is coming to an end so we have created yet another list and a video about the best Android apps that we have found.


SystemPanel 2

Starting off the list is this handy tool which shows you almost every aspect of your Android device in a clear and intuitive interface. You can use SystemPanel to find out about battery or storage usage, your exact location, device info, battery health, usage history and more. This can definitely come in handy in many situations. The free version of the app displays ads but they can be easily removed by purchasing the pro version of SystemPanel and supporting the developer.



If emojis just aren’t enough for you and you want to spice up your conversations with the ever so popular pictures made out of text, Tictures is the app for you. It gives you access to a massive, categorised catalogue of text pictures which you can easily customise and share. Pictures can be also added to the favourites section for quick access to them. In addition, Tictures features a clean interface which is really easy to navigate through.


File Commander

File Commander is one of the best file managers available for Android. This app comes with a massive feature list including network file sharing, a categorised home page, a built-in file converter (you  have to pay for that one), support for cloud storage or external drives and much more. If this isn’t enough, even more features can be unlocked by purchasing the pro version. Managing files using File Commander is very easy so check it out for yourself.



Reflex is s super-simple app for testing your reaction time using one of the three game modes – vision, where you have to wait for the colour of the screen to change, sound, where you wait to hear a sound and vibrate, where you react to a vibration. In all modes you simply tap the screen to set your high score, making the gameplay dead simple. Reflex connects to Google Play Games, giving you access to achievements and the leaderboard.  Check it out!



Here is another game, this time slightly harder. Slider is all about moving a black square around a grid and trying to navigate it to the target. The hard part is that the square won’t stop until it reaches a wall. Slider comes with over 360 free levels and three modes. The game is actually quite addictive and is a great way to spend some free time without getting frustrated. While there is no music or sounds, it is still worth trying out.
