1Walls for reddit

Walls for Reddit App

This is an app that allows you to browser through the wallpapers submitted to reddit and to sub-reddit. There are dozens of wallpapers to choose from! Believe me, it has some of the most beautiful wallpapers that are captured or created by users. If you love to change your device’s wallpaper frequently & always run out of wallpapers, walls for reddit is the perfect app to have in your drawer.

2Flick Launcher

Flick Launcher

Flix Launcher is an Open-Source launcher, inspired by the Google Pixel Launcher. It is one of the few launchers that offer near Pixel experience. While the launcher is still under development, app features & gestures like Double tap to sleep, swipe up and down to open an app works pretty fine. If that isn’t enough, this app also offers a fingerprint App lock functionality, Support Icon packs & also allows you to change icon size in the free version itself. If you’re willing to put up with those occasional bugs, you must try this new launcher.

3Synoped

Using a social media integration, this app lets you make your own “movie group”, invite your friends and find good movies you haven’t seen before. Currently this app has a low 3.8 ratings in Playstore because of the log-in issues but the developer said that the problem is already been fixed in the last update.

5Noozxoide EIZOrewirePro

Ever wanted a Dolby Atmos in your Android phone but don’t want to root your device? This is a good alternative and it works! Yeah, you probably think that it’s name is too messed up to be a legit app but let me tell you, Noozxoide has been in my phone for quite a long time. It’s probably be the most underrated sound processor app available in Google Playstore right now and surprisingly its free.

    Good list except that Walls for Reddit is in early access and its currently full, so you cannot download the app from Google Play.
