Findings of the Week: Five Apps and Games You Need to Know

Writing about new apps and games is part of my job, and even after years in this vital industry I still often find little pearls that make my days easier or more fun. Check out some of these apps that surprised me recently.


This app is a real gem: it lets you retire the USB cable and wirelessly transfer photos, music, videos and files from your smartphone to your PC and vice versa. Simply connect your smartphone and PC to the same Wi-Fi network, open the app, tap the Play icon, and on the PC, access the address that will appear on your smartphone.

On the PC you will see the entire content stored on the smartphone, divided by categories, be able to access all internal memory with a file manager and can even back up the installed apps, which will be downloaded to the PC as an .APK file. Of course, you can also send files from PC to smartphone.

Anyone who has been using Android for a while should remember a similar app, AirDroid. Sweech's advantage is that it is lighter, more direct (AirDroid tries at all costs to force you to register or push extra services) and has no ads. Best impossible.

Poco Launcher

Pocophone F1 Launcher can be installed on any Android, and I liked it so much that I even made an article with tips about it. it has the exact balance between customization (with features that would otherwise be paid for in other apps) and ease of use and configuration.

Mi calculator

Writing about technology, especially with reference to content coming from abroad, I have to do daily unit conversions like temperature, size or weight, or then convert values ??from one currency to another. And Xiaomi's Calculator Mi, a great ally in this task.

In addition to the functions of a common and scientific calculator it brings a huge variety of useful converters and tools. It calculates BMI (Corprea Mass Index), discounts, age and has currency converters, measurements, temperature, time and more. And all this free and without ads.


This is a great editor for you to cut, edit and increment the videos made with your smartphone. Allows you to crop and resize clips, rotate or flip the image, apply filters, add music, backgrounds and text, change playback speed, and more.

When exporting a clip you can adjust the quality and size of the final file for easy upload. The free version has some advertisements on the interface, but it does not limit the size or duration of the videos nor does it require you to add watermarks to the image. The Pro version, which costs $ 37, eliminates ads and brings extra music, effects, filters and fonts.

Boost Buddies

This cute, fun and brutally difficult game. The simple premise: help the kitten in its rocket box reach the crowns scattered throughout the phases. The problem is to do this without being crushed by thorny rocks, hit by deadly pendulums or laser-fried.

Just tap the screen to propel the kitten's rocket, and you must carefully match impulses to achieve the goal. Yes, it reminds me a lot of Flappy Bird, s that more varied and upright. Colorful graphics in Pixel Art and nice music complete a good package.
