What do you get if you mix a dating app with a “Looking For Group” app for gamers? Well, something like 2up, which aims to connect people, whether that’s for new teammates, new romances, or new friends might be the ticket. Filter potential matches based on the games you play, and complete in-app quests based on engagement goals, which convert into raffle entries for things like gaming headsets or new consoles.

Tired of clickbait articles on just about every social media feed? Deepstash might be the answer, with curated lists of good ideas, and good ideas only. Think of it as a feed for self-improvement, without the negativity that you’re bombarded by everywhere else. Oh, and every curated article has a TL:DR section so you can get the important bits if you’re time-strapped. Nice.

National Park Service

Did you know the National Park Service has a new app? Me neither, as it was quietly released this year. Literally anything you’d want to know about the 423 national parks is inside, from lodging to accessibility, to maps and tours. All the information was created by NPS staff, so you’ll have everything you need to plan out your trip – once it’s safe to do so, of course.

Niagara Launcher

Tired of Android themes that clutter your home screen with endless streams of icons? Niagara Launcher might be the launcher for you, with its minimalist stylings that keep all of your important apps in reach. Notifications also come embedded in the home screen, so no more reaching for the notification drawer. Paying for the Pro version gets you new widgets, but both versions are ad-free.

Got a Wear OS watch and are tired of the usual cluttered watch faces? Want your watch to tell you the time in actual words, like the wooden word watch we reviewed a few years ago? Go download Word Clock Watch Face and your wish will be granted. Even better than my watch, you can customize the colors of your watch face.

Google Play


Have a bunch of old, black, and white photos of the family? Wish they were in color? Scan them into Colorize, and AI will recolor them for you, so you can see how your relatives looked before color film was invented. Just know it has in-app purchases for anything over limited use.
