After telling you all about our picks for the best Android games of the month, it’s time to discuss the top apps we’ve seen this month. In addition to the typical management tools that are always well-received, this month we’ve discovered an editor for creating images with movement, an app for creating shortcuts to anything you can think of, and the perfect companion for one of the top games of the summer. We’ve included all these and more in our selection of the best Android apps of the month of August. 

Xbox Game Pass

We don’t usually review apps for external services, but Xbox Game Pass is a real must-have for anyone who uses this Microsoft service. It’s an app that you can use to download the best games remotely and extremely easily. It’s laid out as clear as can be to make navigating it as intuitive as possible. [Download]

Coffee-Working

A lot of the time it’s hard to find a good place to work away from home, where you can take your laptop. Cafés tend to be the go-to place for freelancers who want to get out of the house, but it’s not always possible to connect to their networks. Coffee-Working is here to solve this problem, with a map of nearby coffee shops where you can work at ease. It still needs to expand its networks to include more places around the world, but if it keeps it up, it’ll become an essential app for these types of professions. [Download]

Every self-respecting RPG player knows how important it is to hace a good sound ambiance when playing. While most of us just simply put on basic background music, there are apps like RPGsound that let you take this one step further. This app is a soundboard that offers tons of variety to create all sorts of special effects to liven up your games: everything from the sound of a fireball exploding to the sound of a bear trap, and so much more. [Download]

Ava Lockscreen

We always say that one of the great things about Android in comparison to other operating systems is its high customization possibilities. There are so many apps with this purpose in mind that we can’t even count them all. Ava Lockscreen is one of them, offering the possibility to give your lockscreen a different look. So different, in fact, that it looks more like one you’d see on iOS. But that’s the great thing about Android: it can be anything you want it to be. [Download]

Shorty

Shorty offers the possibility to create shortcuts to anything and everything you can think of. Yes, you read that correctly. Is there a particular tweet you want to have on hand? Shorty will create a shortcut. A song on Spotify you want to hear at a second’s notice? Shorty’s got you. Some users may not find this extremely useful, but it works real wonders, allowing you to have everything at the tip of your finger right on your Android’s homescreen. [Download]

QuestDex

Pokémon Quest has been a real breath of fresh air thanks to how it brings together a theme loved by many and a simple gameplay. Plus visually speaking, it’s lovely, and that always counts for something. However, the game is more complex than it seems at first and catching tons of Pokémon is no easy task. That’s why QuestDex is an ideal companion that will help you out in a lot of ways: as a Pokédex, as a recipe book, and as a guide to your Pokémons’ movements. [Download]
