For many, the end of October means Halloween parties, costumes, pumpkin carving, and scary movie marathons. We’ve already talked about the best games for Halloween, as well as the most important Android games released in October. But we haven’t yet talked about the best of the month in terms of apps. It’s time to remedy this situation with our selection of the 10 best Android apps of October. Enjoy.

Three.do

The world of task managers is as wide as it is varied, but today we’re here to talk about a pretty original app. Thanks to Three.do, you can quickly and easily create reminders. All it takes is three simple steps to create these alerts, and you don’t even have to type or talk to do so. It’s in interesting alternative that’s definitely worth trying out. [Download]

Profiler

Often, you don’t really know why a game or app doesn’t run well on your device. Profiler is an app that aims to help you understand this problem by showing you the performance details of your device in real time. It uses a floating window that you can configure as you please and that allows you to clearly observe the inner-workings of your device. [Download]

Yahoo Together

There’s no doubt that Slack is one of the most used communication tools in working environments. However, it’s not like it has much competition. Yahoo together has shown up as an alternative and presents itself with a nice and clear-cut interface. In just a few steps, you can make a group and have it ready to be used. It’s a pretty interesting concept, although it still has yet to be seen if Yahoo plans on fully committing to the service or not. [Download]

Zoetropic

A while back, we talked about Vimage, an attractive tool for creating images with movement. Zoetropic is a similar app that lets you create beautiful cinemagraphs. Its editor makes its possible to easily add movement to your own photos. [Download]

Name Skillz

We’re always interested in curious apps for Android and Name Skillz fits the bill. It’s an app that helps you remember names using flash cards, a common learning method. So if you’re one of those people who has a hard time remembering names, this simple app could definitely come in handy. [Download]

Run An Empire

We may be cheating a bit by including Run An Empire, since it’s more of a game than an app. But in fact, it fits in perfectly on this list. Thanks to this creation from Location games, you’ll create and manage an empire which you’ll run though in your city. After all, it’s always nice to find an app that uses gamification to give you an incentive to exercise. Especially when it’s as well-made as this one. [Download]

crabhands

We can’t deny the great evolution of Spotify that’s making its app more complete every day. But sometimes, it’s nice to use other apps like crabhands to help make sure you don’t miss the music festivals where your favorite artists are going to play. You have to connect your Spotify account to do this, but if you’re a regular festival-goer, then it’s more than worth it. [Download]

Firefox ScreenshotGo

For a lot of us, screenshots are a way of life on our smartphones. They’re easy to do, but this new app from Mozilla is here to improve the experience even further. Not only does it let you take a screenshot with just a tap on the screen, it also has an organizer to help you classify them as you like. This last function is great for those of us who take screenshots all day long. [Download]

Parsec

This app allows you to play PC titles on your Android with maximum quality. Sounds too good to be true, right? We were skeptical too until we tried it out and realized it’s actually true. Of course, Parsec is still in beta and doesn’t work perfectly without a handheld controller for Android. But the results have really impressed us and we’re looking forward to seeing how this project evolves. All you have to do is install its client on your PC to give it a try for yourself. [Download]
