There are hundreds of Nokia Android apps that you can download from play store. In 2020 many new apps arrived and many get new updates. Like Microsoft Launcher 6.0 update did bring some changes. For instance, the UI is a little more cohesive than it used to be and the launcher setup is a little more traditional. Additionally, it gives you a second row of apps on the dock instead of the old toggles. Google may allow call recording on the stock dialer app. The company re-introduced the capacity to call record in Android 10 so this isn’t too far of a stretch. An APK tear down revealed the appropriate code for the feature. Of course, this doesn’t mean the feature is 100% on its way. However, it would be something wildly out of Google’s wheelhouse and it could be fun to see.
Also, Google re-branded its Fast Share. The feature is now Nearby Sharing, a less catchy and fun name. The feature should compete with Apple’s AirDrop feature and let Android users trade files with one another quickly and easily.
Anyway here are five Android apps you can download for your latest Nokia smartphone.
1. Color by Number Oil Painting
Price: Free / $19.99 per month
Color by Number Oil Painting is a coloring book app with some decent looking images. It’s not quite as free form as most. Find 12 categories of pictures: Animals, Landscapes, Flowers, Travel, Food, Colorful, Still Life, Birds, Marine, Butterflies, Vehicles, Children. It assigns colors for each number and then you fill in the numbers as necessary. It’s not the best for creative types but it is rather cathartic. You can watch ads for some shortcuts if you need them, but you’re supposed to take your time with it. The app is free with some obnoxious ads or you can subscribe and if you can get beyond the ads, this is a good coloring book app.
2. Warface: Global Operations
Price: Free to play
Warface is a mobile version of the popular free to play console and PC shooter. This version is also free to play and not quite as good as the console and PC counterparts. However, it does have its perks. Most of its in-app purchases are for character customizations so the app avoids the pay-to-win aspect. From there, the game has its ups and downs. The graphics are fantastic but the controls are a tad clunky. We’re not fans of the battle pass subscription, but the game has a decent array of weapons and gear.
GitHub is a development platform predominately for open source applications. The company had an Android app already. However, this one is brand new and in beta. It works as you would expect. You can browse the site, contribute in your own ways, and otherwise engage with your projects. It has the basics like a clean UI and a dark mode. At the time of writing it’s was in beta so it’s still an unfinished product.
4. TERA Classic
Price: Free to play
TERA Classic is a mobile release of the popular MMORPG. The game includes four classes, mounts, tons of quests, decent graphics, easy enough controls, and more. It plays a lot like most mobile MMORPGs but it does let you do 50 player guild fights and we thought that was kind of cool. This one is also fairly new and the Play Store listing isn’t even in English yet. However, if you can get beyond the language barrier, this one is pretty good.
5. Microsoft Edge
Microsoft Edge isn’t new but it launched the Chromium version of it across all platforms and so the app is back in beta. This version should sync and work with the desktop version as long as you download the Chromium variant from Microsoft. The mobile browser version looks and feels like Chrome but with a Microsoft spin and that describes the desktop variant as well.
