5 new Android and iOS applications to install on your smartphone without hesitation

Like every weekend, we meet on NextPit for my selection of 5 free or paid mobile apps and games that caught my eye on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Every week I try to bring you the best apps possible that aren’t personal data traps or nests of microtransactions. To my discoveries, I also add the apps unearthed by the NextPit community and shared on our forum, which I invite you to consult.

From mobile games to productivity apps, here are NextPit’s 5 free and paid Android / iOS apps this week. We publish this selection every week, you can also check out my 5 apps from the last week.

Expiry date reminder (Android)

If you’re like me and have a hard time remembering important due dates, then maybe the aptly named due date reminder makes perfect sense. Personally, I turn off automatic renewal for all of my subscriptions, preferring to manually renew them for that extra level of security. The problem with this model is that it’s nearly impossible to remember how many expiration dates in your life, from important household items to medications, coupons, specials (steam sales!) And others.

While this application comes with a set of predefined categories, it also offers the ability to add new custom categories to suit your needs. No matter which side of the Atlantic you live on, both MM-DD-YYYY and DD-MM-YYYY formats are supported according to your preferences. Best of all, this app is completely offline, so don’t worry if someone is secretly collecting data about you!

Phone jumping (Android)

There is a very good reason why most of us buy a protective case for our smartphones, to protect them from scratches or broken screens in the event of an accidental drop. The problem is that there is no way to prepare for such incidents for the simple reason that they are called … accidents. If your smartphone is about to fall anyway, why not add a touch of humor with the Jumping Phone app?

It is a fun app that makes your smartphone laugh or scream when it is thrown or dropped. Of course, you won’t throw your smartphone away just to hear it laugh or scream, but in the event that any of these actions occur, you will at least be notified.

You will be able to select many different sounds, from a laugh to a panicked scream, or choose any sound you recorded using this app. Although the default app only offers half a dozen sounds to begin with, you can start customizing it depending on how clunky you are.

Pivot (Android)

Don’t you think it’s extremely fair that everyone in this world, no matter who you are or how much money you have in the bank, is always subject to time? Each person has exactly 24 hours a day, no more, no less. This makes time your most important asset and begs the question: are you spending it well? Pivot is an app that hopes to help you unlock greater productivity by choosing to spend your time more thoughtfully. It’s also great for tracking your hobbies and other casual activities.

Time tracking is simple with this app, where you will be able to set your activities in this app and select them to keep track. Running one timer breaks the previous one, so you don’t have to worry about them overlapping or messing up the collected data. In case you forgot to follow a certain activity, don’t worry – just edit your entries to update them.

Specifically designed to work with all kinds of tracking styles, this simple yet powerful reporting method offers insights into how I’ve spent my time. I can even view my results as soon as I start tracking them, and they can be further customized by using filters and groups to get more information from that data. Enterprising people will love the idea of ​​being able to set one-time or repetitive goals! Don’t wait for the new year to start a new you, start today and let this app help you.

Three spoons (Android)

I tend to shop on a weekly basis, so I do a pretty thorough inventory scan of my fridge and food cupboard before compiling the week’s grocery list. However, I sometimes forget what I already have in the deepest recesses of my refrigerator and buy another similar item, chocolates are the main culprits here, for forcing myself to consume nearly expired sweets to make room for the new purchase.

Uneaten food is something I am guilty of and Three Spoon will (hopefully) keep me from releasing more greenhouse gases than I should from that uneaten food.

Three Spoon helps me record and track my food items and their expiration dates. Whenever I consume something, I press the button and the product is placed in my shopping cart. It is so practical that it more or less acts as a shopping list! At least the next time I go shopping I will know which exact items I need to buy without falling into the unwanted trap of over-buying. There is also a field to enter the price, which lets you know how inflation will affect your monthly budget.

Skyturns (iOS and Android)

Skyturns Multiplayer is a running game with a parkour twist that takes place in an open world. People with dizziness will need to prepare as the game takes place entirely in the sky! There is only one goal in this game: find the flag as fast as possible! Note that this game is by no means new, but the latest version has an extra element that multiplies the fun factor: the ability to play multiplayer!

With this latest update to Skyturns, you will now be able to interact and compete with other players in real time in the game. This is a skill-based racing game that has since recorded over a million downloads since its release in 2014. The time is certainly past reached, but it’s still just as fun to play with the addition of multiplayer.

Additionally, the introduction of the ability to build custom parkour tracks to play on increases the replayability of Skyturns in several ways, where you can choose to design some of the vilest courses around!
