Most of us here own and use an android device as our daily driver or as our second device, while there are millions of apps on the play store and a couple million more available on Github or Xda, finding and discovering new apps to make your life easier is not easy, hence why I have decided to start this new series to showcase my top new favorite apps on Android every month.
I will have every app linked with a short description. If you like and want to see more of this kind of series join our Telegram Channel and leave a short message.
Starting out simple, Spotify recently announced their grand entrance into the African Market. SpotaFree is an App that allows you to download Songs & whole playlists from spotify into Mp3 format Directly allowing you to store music in your local directory for offline music playing.

2. Google Recorder
Google says this is the smartest Recorder yet, and I have to agree. Google recorder instantly transform audio into text so that you can search, edit, and share your recordings. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it even works offline.*
You can even edit your audio by simply editing text. When you edit your transcript, your audio automatically changes too. Save the parts you need, snip the bits you don’t.
This app is reserved for Google pixel devices only, but you can sideload the app on practically any phone here.
I love Augmented Reality (AR) so ofcourse there was bound to be atleast one AR app in the list. Display Land is an advanced free Cloud 3D model scanner and AR tool. The app turns your phone into a 3D camera essentially. It’ll turn any physical space into a 3D model that can be used with AR VR.
4. Safaricom’s New Mpesa App

5. Gcam Port
I saved the best for last, by far and away, my favorite app that is hidden from the Google Play Store is the Gcam port. The GCam port is essentially the Google camera app that ships exclusively with Google’s own Pixel devices.
However, the app has been modded and ported over so that it can work with non-Google phones. This means that pretty much all of the camera features that are essentially what makes pixel phones worth the money in the first place can now be utilized on other phones. From features like Google’s own night site or their portrait mode, which is definitely one of the best in the industry.
The best part of it all is that using these ports means you get access to Google’s image processing meaning photos taken on non-pixel phones now look like they were taken on pixel phones. So you can kind of see why Google doesn’t want this readily available on their own playstore.
