5 apps you have to try this week

5 apps you have to try this week

Here at AndroidPIT, we're constantly seeing new and exciting apps on the Play Store. We've tried several this week and picked our favorites. Here are the ones we think you absolutely must try.


Triogical is a rather original puzzle game. Its name refers to the trio of wizards you play in the game and to logic which is the key element of the game. Each of the magicians has specific powers which they use to face challenges along the way. To make things tough, you have to try to complete each level with as few moves as possible to earn stars.

Game of Thrones Conquest

Game of Thrones needs no introduction, I'm sure. The popular TV show has fans around the world who will be happy to hear that Daenerys, Jon and the whole crew are coming to Android. Just like in the series, there's a war between families, but this time it's up to you to build your house and raise an army. Capture the Iron Throne as a Lord in Westeros today!

Into the Dead 2

Based on the original Into the Dead endless runner, this sequel is more complex and even more fun. There are seven chapters, more weapons and explosives, and new zombies with armor to battle. The immersive locations are different from the previous game and include scenes like military bases and oil fields. Join the battle, survive the horde and you will reach one of multiple possible endings to the story after 60 stages.

The Vikings

The Vikings is a simple game that's tough to put down. Instead of opting for impressive graphics, this minimalist title allows you to throw axes at your enemies by tapping the screen, pulling and aiming at your enemies. As a viking, you will attempt to slay magicians who shoot fireballs, archers and swordsmen with your choice of many axes. There is also a PvP mode so you can play against a friend.

Blue Apron

Blue Apron has finally come to Android. If you haven't heard of it yet, it's a service which delivers all the ingredients you need to make a great meal. It's easy, even if you don't know how to cook, since it comes with full instructions. The app also allows you to manage your subscription and delivery schedule.

What do you think of these great apps? Are there any you'd recommend we try for next week?

    Fabulous 5 apps thank you for telling me.

    I'm going to have to agree with the previous posts. At least let us know in the title that you're telling us about games. Or maybe do separate articles.

    not really into games.. but
    How about a nice new weather app..
    YR (yr.no) have just done an updated weather app, nice simple design, easy to use, accurate (in the UK) with simple animated weather. Simple but light and fast.

    Windy.com have just redesigned their app, very cool app for checking wind and just about any weather conditions you could think of.. lots of features to play around with..

    If you like customised widgets, especially KWGT, you can get Samsung's new weather icons and wallpapers, via a plug-in.. S8 for KWGT by Genoma design.

      Thanks for the tip Paul, we'll check these out. As someone who was caught in Storm Herwart in Germany this weekend, I have a mind to try some better weather apps.

    Same here. Games and a paid content app.

    I wish that publications like yours would recognize the distinction between apps and games. I know that technically a game is an app, but everyone understands the distinction I am making. I have little interest in phone games, have none on my phone, but am interested in what new apps are available and your opinion of them. Run games in their own article. Besides being a service to your readers, it gives you a whole other chance to collect clicks.

      Totally agree clicked looking to find some new great app but just useless games.

      Hey, thanks for the comment and feedback (Jim and everyone else who chimed in on this point). When editing this, I was thinking it would make more sense to keep utility apps and games lists more distinct, and the comments here so far make me more sure of that. Going forward we'll avoid the overuse of games on our top 5 app lists.
