Another week has passed and the weekend is just around the corner. Every week we meet at NextPit to discuss our selection of 5 free or paid mobile apps and games that caught our attention on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

Each week we’ll try to sift through the mountain of apps available and curate the best of the lot – the ones that don’t stealthily mine your data or are a hell of microtransactions. In addition to our finds, we’ve also included gemstones that were discovered by the NextPit community and shared on our forum. We invite you to check out.

From mobile games to productivity apps, here are NextPit’s 5 free and paid Android / iOS apps this week.

Clip

Clipt is the first app released by OnePlus’ OneLab Studio, an experimental app development project. The main idea is to create a synced clipboard for all of your Android devices.

Photos, text, links and files – all can be shared while copying to your clipboard, regardless of whether you are using an Android smartphone or tablet. Just make sure the app is installed on each device and sign in with the same Google account.

Alternatively, you can send files directly from your file manager without having to go through the clipboard.

Every day

Dailly is a minimalist productivity app in terms of both features and design. This may sound like a disappointment at first, but in a productivity market where apps have gotten so complicated, it’s more refreshing than helping you simplify your life.

If you just want to set a simple goal for yourself without needing a bachelor’s degree in project management first, Dailly is for you. The application works offline and everything is saved locally on your smartphone.

Plate break

This “game” reminds me so much of my first session in an angry dream. You know these rooms that are rented out to you to safely vent your frustrations and anger that you can basically throw away anything and everything within 30 minutes.

Such tantalizing dreams (also known as tantalizing rooms and shattering rooms) were all the rage in 2017 (pardon the pun). Perhaps we will find some relief in such a room at this time of the pandemic. I spent my time there on a journalistic school story where I found the experience to be extremely therapeutic.

Plate Shatter is based on the same principle of destruction for relaxation. You’ll have soft jazz music playing in the background, with everything looking great in a pastel colored graphic setting. Your work? Smash the plates there into a thousand pieces without suffering a single consequence.

And to be honest, at the end of the day it was a great way to rely on the gyro control and break fine (virtual) porcelain by shaking my smartphone. My only regret is the fact that you have to pay a whopping $ 1.99 to remove the ads that appear for every 20 broken plates. I suppose this is a way to get me mad so I can spend that much money getting these ads removed! Violence has a price that I paid without hesitation.

Wroom

Wroom is the digital version of the scenario in which a playing card gets stuck on the spoke of a bicycle wheel. This app is aimed at cyclists and simulates engine noises that change depending on the rate of acceleration. Well, the app is actually based on your smartphone’s accelerometer so you can take advantage of it even if you’re just walking around.

If my hours of watching Moto Madness or 100% Moto compilations at 2am have taught me one thing, it is that hearing can actually save lives while riding a two-wheeler. Connect your smartphone to a bluetooth speaker. Your handset transforms your old, rickety bike into a 1000cc Yamaha R1.

The app also allows you to choose from different engine types and displacements and is completely free. I like the WTF aspect, but maybe there is a law in the highway code that prohibits such noise. Anyway, I can’t see a cyclist being punished for playing the sound of an engine, but what do I know, I don’t have a license.

The fate of Kai

Fate of Kai is an award-winning game, and rightly so, as you are not in control of your characters but rather their minds.

The game is presented as a puzzle in the form of a comic book and you have to “guess” and fill in the thought bubbles of certain characters in selected fields in order to advance the story and solve their puzzles.

Visually, the game is breathtaking. I’m just beginning so I can’t really tell how the story is progressing, but the format and originality of the gameplay totally caught my attention.
