Mobile app reviews September 2019
Notch & S10 Battery Bar APP
Notch is one of the reasons I chose pixel 3 over the pixel 3XL: Notch City, and I’m glad that the S10 and even the Huawei honor view 20 is compatible with Notch. However most of you who are still stuck with a notch well might not use it creatively. Notch battery sets a battery bar around the notch.
It can be used with any notch style and most importantly it works without asking for any special permission. As it’s just a like fall paper. Simply go to the app choose your smartphone notch to adjust the size and set of wallpaper, and that’s it.
You will now see a sleek battery bar that wraps around the notch. I have to say this app kicks the static of your phone up a notch.
Live Transcribe APP
The next app live transcribe is a real-time translator from Google. Purely made for the elderly and the people with hearing loss. It uses Google speech to text API to convert your speech in real-time. The app supports many languages and you can even set two languages as your primary and secondary language.
Which you can switch by a single tap on the language button at the bottom. The ear picks the voice very well including punctuation and below it also comes free without any advertisements. The only necessity is it requires a stable internet connection to work.
Sound Amplifier APP
History claims that people with hearing loss do use Google too. Therefore been exposed for the Google interface is a huge advantage to develop this application. This Sound amplifier converts your smartphone into a hearing aid which amplifies the sound around you like when someone is talking to you.
And also removes the background noise in real-time, which could be related with active noise cancellation in this QC 35. Which make sure you only get relevant information in to your ears.
To be honest I wasn’t able to tell any difference since I don’t have any hearing issues. But if there are adults around you, give it a try.
Next, we have this new app Cosy. It automatically detects and link contacts based on the name. In addition, you can also manually link profiles with contacts. The only drawback is it works only with public profile pictures.
Lens Distortion APP
And finally, an app that gets you those fancy lens flares that you get with a DSLR. Lens distortion is a popular iOS app that is now available for android. Simply open the app import a photo add some light flare and then give a final touch.
You get free light rays which is sufficient for basic editing. In addition, if you feel that it doesn’t fulfill your requirement you can always purchase the professional version (Pro) from the Play Store.
