5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

Android Apps Weekly featured iamge
Welcome to the 197th edition of Android Apps Weekly. Here are your headlines from this week:

  • Google announced some changes to Google Play this week. Starting June 30th, Android 2.1 and lower will no longer have Android Market support. This will have two immediately impacts. For starters, developers no longer need to support anything lower than Android 2.2. Secondly, those rocking wicked old phones will no longer have access to apps and games from Google. That’s only about 0.8% of Android phones. Still, it’s something Google doesn’t do very often.
  • Instagram revealed that Instagram Stories has more than 250 million daily users. That’s impressive in its own right. However, the bigger story is that it makes it bigger than Snapchat. In a rare sighting, the copycat has become more popular than the original. That puts Snapchat back in the role of the underdog. The company also announced that 700 million people actively use Instagram.
  • Google announced a new job search tool at Google I/O. It went live this week. Job seekers can simply ask Google for jobs near them. Google Search will then show them available jobs. Google can also deliver alerts for new jobs that matches job seeker requirements. It’s a bit basic right now. However, this is likely going to be one of the most popular tools for job seekers very soon.
  • The latest Humble Mobile Bundle is out! The theme for this one is rogue-like games. You can $1 and get three games, pay $5 and get six games, or pay the average and get every game in the bundle. Some of the titles include Road Not Taken, bit Dungeon I and II, and Heroes of Loot 2. The asking cost for all nine games is $40. That makes this a good deal. Plus, you’ll be helping charity!
  • SEGA announced a new game this week. The purpose is to bring a bunch of classic arcade games to Android. Sega Forever will include titles like Sonic, Phantasy Star II, Comix Zone, Altered Beast, and others. It’ll be free to download and play with ads. You can remove the ads with a $1.99 in-app purchase. Sega also promised to release more games for the service after its June 22nd launch. Many of the titles, including Sonic, Phantasy Star II, Kid Chameleon, and others are on Google Play.
