5 new Android and iOS applications to install on your smartphone

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

I try every week to provide you with the best possible apps that are not personal data traps or microtransaction nests. To my own knowledge, I have also added apps that have been acquired 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 consult my 5 apps last week.

Tochi – Mood Tracker, Diary (Android)

Tochi is an emotional tracking app that lets you easily track your daily ups and downs, moods, and other symptoms related to common mood disorders such as bipolar disorder, depression, and PTSD.

You can track your perception of emotional “orbs”, colored spheres based on a dominant emotion. You can also record your various emotional factors and your exercises to better control them.

The application looks very complete and the interface is very nice. On the other hand, it has a lot of ads and the paid version to open everything for life includes a purchase of 14 euros. Very large. There are many alternatives, more limited, but completely free.

  • Price: free / Ads: no / In-app purchase: yes / Account: not required / French language: no

Onvy Mindful Health Companion (iOS)

ONVY is a companion fitness app to use if you have an Apple Watch, smartwatch or fitness tracker and use it to work out.

Onvy offers activity monitoring and analysis to work in 4 areas: well -being, activity, mindfulness and stress. So, at a glance, you can see how and to what extent your health is changing. Onvy also gives you guidance and personal recommendations on how you can optimize different aspects of your health, step by step.

ONVY uses the functions of the Apple Health app and aggregates the data through HealthKit. You always have the possibility to manage the sharing of data individually and to adjust it as you wish. But it also works on wearables from Fitbit, Garmin, Polar and Oura.

NothinK – customized widgets (Android)

Nothink allows you to create widgets inspired by the Left speech scheme. The app is just a collection of widgets and wallpapers in itself. To add it to your home screen and make it work, you need to go through the KWGT application that allows you to create and customize widgets.

The process isn’t ultra-intuitive, but you can easily get it. And widgets for use in general in addition to very visually classy. Well, on the other hand, the application was paid for and cost 1.09 euros.

  • Price: € 1.09 / Ads: no / In-app purchase: no / Account: not required / French language: no
Don’t mind the screenshots in the app

Notion – Notes, projects, docs (iOS)

At NextPit, we love productivity tools and we love using a different platform for every day-to-day task. Basecamp, Officely, Jamboard, Google Meet/Calendar/Sheet, Slack etc. It’s so cute and I really like it (not)!

The idea falls into this category of collaboration platforms, but you can also use it for yourself to better organize your projects. Think of it as a steroid-boosted note-taking app.

The basic free application is very complete but, of course, you can switch to a paid formula against a subscription of 5.49 euros per month or 47.99 euros per year. Little more, the application is in French!

  • Price: free / Ads: no / In-app purchase: yes (€ 5.49 / month or € 47.99 / year) / Account: required / French language: yes

Apex Legends Mobile (Android and iOS)

Apex Legends is one of the countless clones of Fortnite, but it works well and is able, more or less, to stand out, especially thanks to its ping system (the fact of showing something to your with the team not having to say or write them) is very sophisticated and its game is more aggressive and refocuses on weapons.

I’ve been waiting for the mobile port of this game for months. It finally came out this week. I haven’t tried it yet but it’s one of the first things I’ll do when I’m done writing this article. Basically, expect a Battle Royale where you have to eliminate all enemies in a vast arena. It’s all for their own skin, solo or in a team.

The gameplay is in FPS mode so in first person view and multiplayer only. Clearly we expect aggressive monetization, as Call of Duty Mobile or Fortnite do. But it’s nice to have a little bit of innovation in the mobile shooter market.

  • Price: free / Ads: no / In-app purchase: yes, lots / Account: required / French language: yes

What do you think of this choice? Have you tried some of the apps on this list? What are your Android and/or iOS apps of the week?
