There are so many Android apps out there this week that it’s almost impossible to keep track of all the newcomers.
Luckily, we’ve collected the best apps of this week so you can find something new to try out.
Moments [By Facebook]
Facebook launched its “Moments” app in the US this week.The app allows users to share mobile-phone photos with friends without posting them publicly. Moments arranges the photos on someone’s mobile phone into groups, based on when they were taken. The facial recognition technology can identify Facebook friends to whom users can then forward the photos. Moments also keeps all of your synced photos organized and even lets the user search them to find the ones that you or particular friends are in. It will be rolled out to other countries soon.

Shoot [By BitTorrent]
BitTorrent launched a new photo and video sharing app last week called Shoot. The app uses BitTorrent’s Sync technology that lets you share photos and videos directly between devices without uploading to and downloading from, the cloud. The app requires the receiving device to scan the file-sharing QR code from the sender’s device. One of the biggest merits of this app is its cross-platform support.
The app is free to download and offers first three sends for free. You’ll then be prompted to pay $1.99 after these three transfers complete.

Portal – Wifi file transfers [By Pushbullet]
Portal is the Pushbullet’s newest app, designed to make it easy to send a file from the desktop to your phone. Portal works by sending the files over your WiFi network. This means we can transfer files extremely quickly, and that they don’t count against your data plan.
Portal is optimized for drag-and-drop file transfers, even those larger than 1 GB in size. And if your phone or tablet is running Android 5.0 or better, you can save PC files on an SD card in your mobile device

Adobe Photoshop Mix
Photoshop Mix for Android is good for some casual editing on the go. You can take photos, cut out certain parts of them and then mix them up with other photos to create your own fun images and share them socially. Mix also lets you tweak the coloring for select parts of pictures, as well as the whole picture. Your original images are saved separately, so even if you mess up, you can always have the original back.
