In the popular Google play Play store there never been shortage of best free Android apps for smartphones and tablets, with everything from fun and games to file downloads and security Android Apps. I have compiled top 7 (Seven) Android Apps for this Month of August for you, these apps are from different Categories being Productivity, Internet and Communications, Location, Photos and Video, Utilities and Entertainment.
App 1. Weather Signal (Free).
Weather Signal app makes use of phone’s environmental sensors to deliver in-depth weather reports display local atmospheric readings, which are then display live-updating weather map of Weather Signal. When using this App you contribute to the most ambitious weather crowdsourcing project in the world – helping to record weather patterns on a more localised level. The map view plots your data – as well as data from other Weather Signal users – onto a map of your local area, and filters specify which data is displayed.
The more sensors your phone has, the more information Weather Signal will display.
My favourite features of this app is the ability to save all data to CSV on SD card and the way you can produce Manual reports. Being flexible this way means that you can use the app data for research purposes; thats my take!
