Top Android apps and games of the week #23

Many of us have faced low storage warnings on our Android devices while installing new apps or games. But with the new built-in uninstall manager, Google will be making it easier to uninstall less used titles with a single tap. This is certainly an interesting and useful addition to the digital storefront. And, if you are wondering which apps or games deserve to occupy the precious storage space on your phones or tablets, then you are at the right place.

Bothered by so many notifications from different apps installed on your mobile device and cluttering your notification shade? Well, the Boomerang Notifications app makes it easier to deal with them. Whenever you get a notification, you can swipe it away, and the app will ask whether you simply want to dismiss it or would like to snooze it for some time. Now, whenever you check Boomerang Notifications, it will show you the dismissed and upcoming notifications (in case you have snoozed them) in an at-a-glance screen. It also lets you select which apps would show up the snooze prompt, when you dismiss the notification.

GoogleGoogle {Update} (Free)

If you’re using a Marshmallow-based smartphone and are a fan of Google’s Now on Tap feature, then it has got a significant update. Earlier, you only had the option to long-press the home button and Google automatically picked the search terms and presented the info cards. But now, it gives you the option to search for a specific chunk of text in a webpage, email or chat. The feature will also work with images, which means that you can get information about pictures too, without even leaving the app. Taking this a step further, the feature will work real-time as well with the camera app, letting you know more about the architecture, movie or magazine.

Google KeepGoogle Keep {Update} (Free)

Google’s note-taking app, Keep, has received a refresh this week. It now sports a slightly redesigned interface which gels better with the Material Design language. The app will also show link previews, and another cool feature is the ability to suggest grocery items. This is because the app will understand the context and whenever you’re making the grocery list, it’ll suggest related items only. If you have already added something in your checklist and you’re adding it again, then it intelligently tells that it has already been added.
