Every week a lot of apps appear in the Play Store. However, you don’t have to try because of the quality. In this weekly overview, we are thus gathering the best Android apps, updates, and games from last week.
Read on after the announcement.
1. Automatic Papers (and Tasker)
Do you know Tasker? This app can automate all kinds of repetitive tasks to save a lot of time. Last week, Tasker released a new extension: Automatic Papers. This “plugin” can automate almost everything in Google Sheets.
With AutoSheets it is possible for example to create new spreadsheets, copy existing data to other files, create new rows and so on. A practical example is that you can, for example, categorize your banking expenses automatically in a clear Google spreadsheet. To be clear: You need Tasker to use automatic cards.
2. Game of Thrones
Do you like game of thrones and board games? Then you should try Game of Thrones: The Board Game. In the digital version of the board game, you are at the helm of one of the six houses in Westeros: Lannister, Stark, Greyjoy, Martell, Tyrell, or Baratheon.
It’s up to you to get the crown within ten rounds. You can choose how to do it. For example, you can go to war, seek cooperation with others, or use combination. The A Dance with Dragons expansion was released at the same time as the base game.

3. Battery Boy
Battery Boy is the so-called running game, known from games like Temple Runner, but with a twist. The game takes into account the percentage of your smartphone’s battery. There are four types of coins to collect: green, yellow, red, and silver.
You guessed it: it depends on the percentage of the battery and the coin you are facing. You can use these currencies for in-app purchases, for example. It’s also, of course, a clever trick from the game makers to ensure the game is as open as possible. The gameplay mainly consists of smart navigation between different courses and avoiding obstacles.
4. Last time
Last Time is a new activity tracker in the broadest sense of the word. For example, the app remembers the last time you went to the hairdresser, watered plants or baked your bread.
You can take notes and schedule follow-up appointments if needed. It is also possible to classify activities, for example in terms of purpose: sport, sponsorship, or anything else. Last Time does not contain ads and does not work with trackers to track your behavior on the Internet.
MindTree is a very useful meditation app also for Earth. The app grows trees while you meditate. You will be rewarded after attending a session. When you take good care of yourself, MindTree rewards you with a gift that benefits the planet, too.
Aside from this unique development, MindTree is a standard meditation app. You can, for example, follow guided meditations, start a session on your own or listen to soothing music, for example. The app is also full of tips. To use tree planting software, you must have a paid subscription.
