aodNotify – LED Notifications

With smartphone makers pushing themselves to achieve higher screen-to-body-ratio, one key element of any smartphone has been left out. LED Notifications were quite helpful and sadly, they no longer exist. aodNotify tries to bring the same functionality to smartphones with punch-hole cutout. As the name suggests, the notification ring around your punch-hole cutout will appear on Always On Display.

The developers claim that the app has a minimal effect on the battery as the notification ring is integrated right in Always On Display. You also have an option to show the notification LED light even without Always On Display. The app also lets you know about low battery with the help of a notification light as well.

At the time of writing this, aodNotify only works on Samsung and OnePlus devices. The developer is offering two different apps for both the smartphone makers. Furthermore, the model of your smartphone should also be supported. We’re expecting the developer to add more devices to its compatible list.

Olauncher - best free Android apps and games

When it comes to Android customization, a custom launcher acts like a building block. The Play Store is flooded with a ton of launchers, each bringing a bunch of unique features to the table. One such launcher is Olauncher. Unlike most launchers out there, Olauncher brings a much simpler and minimal user interface to the table. It’s a complete free launcher that “respects your privacy”. What’s more interesting is the fact that it is an open-source app.

The home screen of the launcher is quite simple and showcases names of pinned apps along with a time & date widget on the top-left corner. That’s it. The launcher comes with a built-in wallpaper changer that automatically refreshes your home screen each day. It also offers a quick app search that you can use to find the app. The launcher is free of app icons meaning all you’ll see its app names.

It is worth noting that the developer of the launcher has recently announced that the development of the app is almost stopped. He will soon launch a Pro or Paid version of the launcher that will be treated with the latest additions and updates.

Price: Free (Paid version to soon launch)

If you’re a fan of the retro wave theme, then you’re doing to definitely like the next app that we have for you. Red Walls is the app that I stumble upon when I was searching for some retrowave wallpapers for my Android device. The app offers a collection of retrowave live wallpapers. The app will treat you with all those 80’s themes with classic outrun, synthwave, and of course, retrowave aesthetics.

The developers claim that the app will consume minimum battery as the wallpapers are nothing but a simple 6-second looping video. Furthermore, the 3D graphics are pre-rendered. The free version of the app offers 16 live wallpapers while the Pro version will add 16 wallpapers on top. With that said, it would be great if the app offered a little more live wallpapers.


Price: Free (available as a Pro version as well)

No Humanity – The Hardest Game

Just like with our other editions, we’ll end this weekly column with a fun and interesting Android game. We’re looking at No Humanity which according to the devs is “the hardest game”.  In this game, you’re in a spaceship emoji that has somehow got caught up in a galactic doodle war between Brian and Shan. Sounds interesting, right?

Throughout the game, you will have to escape from beaming lasers, firing bullets, monsters’ eyes, and much more. The key goal is to survive as long as you can. You can choose between multiple characters and game modes. Speaking of the modes, we’re looking at Ocean game mode that has more enemies, more ocean, and of course, chances of dying faster.

Chinese game mode, on the other hand, takes you to ancient China. Then, there’s a Survive mode where you need to survive for the given time. All in all, No Humanity is a unique and interesting game that we really enjoyed playing for leisure.
