Continuing with our aim of providing you with the best apps which were released or updated in this week in Play Store, we bring to you this week’s apps. These apps of this week are a mix of Fun, Utility and Customization-

Giganticon (Free)

Giganticon is a combination of two words- ‘Gigantic + Icon’. As the name of the app suggests, it turns the icons of the apps on the Android smartphones to gigantic (large) icons. This is extremely useful to give prominence to few of our favorite or most used apps. Moreover, it can prove to be of great help to our old-age parents who find it difficult to discern between icons due to poor visibility.

The app allows only two apps to be customized for changing their icon size, with the option of paid upgradation for customizing more apps.

Google Keyboard (Free)

Google Keyboard is the Android’s stock keyboard which is developed by Google and is available on the Nexus devices (like Nexus 4), but is not on smartphones from other manufacturers as they replace it with their own keyboard. It offers several usual features like word prediction, error correction, voice typing, etc. and some useful options such as Gesture based typing, local language support.

Vine (Free)

If you love the idea of using Twitter for sharing short and to the point updates (in 140 characters or less) to share your feelings, then you’ll also like Vine, which is also developed by Twitter. Vine allows one to create a 6 seconds looping video and enables sharing it to various social networks. The app came to iOS 5 months before and garnered 13 million downloads in such a short period.

One of the earliest members of the 91mobiles' editorial team, Nitansh is a walking encyclopaedia of product specs. Name a phone and he’ll tell you the specifics on screen resolution, processor and camera without blinking an eyelid. Ask him if he remembers the launch date of a noteworthy phone, and he'll tell you the dates when the device first leaked, its global unveil, its Indian launch, and when it got a significant update. He’s a lover of all things Android, and loves writing reviews and scouting for new apps. A Wordpress whiz, he’s always ready to help out a fellow writer. While he juggles between many things at 91mobiles, he always manages to find time to write. In his non-tech avatar, Nitansh is a philatelist, which is a fancy word for stamp-collector.
