Every weekend, we will meet again with my selection of 5 free or paid mobile apps and games, which have caught my attention on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
I will try to bring you the best apps every week, not data thieves or micro-transaction black holes. In addition to my own discoveries, I will also include other gems unearthed in the NextPit community and share them on our forums. I invite you to view the contents.
from mobile game For productivity apps, the following are the top 5 free and paid Android/iOS apps, by Next pit this week.
Android 12 clock widget
The title is evocative enough. If you have not installed the beta version on your smartphone, this application allows you to install the new Android 12 clock widget and experience the materials you designed.
In its free version, the app displays banner ads and offers a very limited selection of widgets.
I prefer to pay $0.99 (a one-time purchase) to get rid of ads and access more visually appealing premium widgets. The app works offline and does not require an account or authorization.

VolEq is an Android application that allows you to create different EQ presets based on what you listen to on your smartphone, and automatically adjust the sound accordingly. VolEq provides a custom mode that you can adjust as needed and 3 other preset modes: Podcast, Noisy, and Gentle.
Basically, the idea is to increase the volume of soft sounds or decrease the volume of loud sounds to balance the audio experience and avoid having to constantly change the volume, for example when you are watching a movie, you must change the volume to make it louder.
It’s like when you’re watching a movie, the dialogue sounds like a whisper in a folk horror movie, but the action scenes make your eardrums disappear without a trace (the same goes for YouTube ads).
The app is free, but you need to watch ads to unlock access to features within 24 hours. A paid version of the application is available in the Google Play store.

Tomatoro is a productivity app for Android and iOS. It provides a very simple and stylish Pomodoro timer.
You can easily set the time interval of your choice from 5 minutes to 1 hour, and get statistics about your focus meetings and track your time.

Culo is a calculator and spreadsheet application with a terrible name. I have explained in detail how bad my math is. But I believe some of you are interested in this kind of application.
Basically, Culo is a calculator application, but you can record all operations on a spreadsheet, just like a note-taking application.
Culo also exists in Paid version It only costs $2.49 to remove ads and allow you to restore and import spreadsheets.

Fall into the water!
Overboard is a game of Inkle Studio, they are always responsible for making high-quality games. Overboard is an investigation game that mixes adventure elements, interactive graphic novels and mysterious plots.
The game starts with the murder on the SS Hook ship, but you are the murderer! You will have to use clues, secrets, suspects, and evidence to frame an innocent person for you, instead of investigating to find the culprit. All of this adds interest to the challenge in a limited time.
I really like the graphic style and visual and narrative inspiration of the game. The gameplay is a bit too contemplative for me, if you hate long conversations, I would not recommend it. But I find this format is very suitable for games that you play in the background to pass the time.
Despite the obvious quality of the title, the price tag of $6.49/5.99 seems a bit high. But a game takes 45 minutes, not more. Of course, there are multiple endings to encourage replayability, but it is up to you after all.
