From privacy protecting browsers to high action games, the recent releases are a reflection of changing priorities for app makers. Our phones are extremely powerful devices that are always going to be put to test. It’s going to be exciting to see how they do with these new set of apps that have come on top this week.
Best apps of the week (May 25)
If you love Unsplash or are a user yourself, this app will be a delightful experience. Unsplash is a website where generous photographers submit high-resolution photos which you can use for free. This app basically picks out the best ones in the set and allows you to use it as a wallpaper or even download it. It’s pretty easy to use and you can customize your app preferences more comprehensively than some other wallpaper apps.

One of the most refreshing aspects of this browser is its minimalism. There is absolutely no clutter like a busy news feed and ads that we have to put up with in many other browsers. Go for this app if you want to save on battery and love customizing your settings. This lite browser comes with the benefits of great performance and storage management without compromising on the features (add-ons, cache control, night mode etc) that are provided by popular browsers.

Tor Browser conceals your digital footprint and ensures that you get the privacy that you’re entitled to on the internet. The browser does not function with the intention of delivering great features or unique browsing experience. It’s pretty functional and basic but it will ensure as much privacy as you can get when you venture into the World Wide Web. The Tor Project is constantly working to stabilize the app and improve its user experience. Use this app if you want to support The Tor Project and their objective of providing a safe browsing experience.

One of the biggest drawbacks about our phone’s gallery is the difficulty we face when we need to find screenshots. That’s where Firefox ScreenshotGo comes in. You can input a keyword in this app and it will find the necessary screenshot for you. You can also organize your screenshots in separate folders. This app also comes with a cool feature called Take Action on Text which enables you to copy-paste content from a screenshot effortlessly. Give this try if you are someone who works with a lot of screenshots.

This app has some great features and is extremely intuitive. We like how this app gives information about the lighting available at different timings of the day for a location. You can test out the different filters and play with the focus settings to get what you’re looking for. Keep in mind that not all the features come unlocked with this phone. You’ll need to pay for complete access to all the features and settings.
Best games of the week (May 25)

We cannot be sure how this game is going to turn out on Mobile but you can pre-register for its limited-scale closed Beta test if you want to enjoy early access.
