Well, that’s why we bring you a selected list of apps and games, which are either new or have received a significant update. So, without further delay, read on to find out this week’s picks.
There are several instances when you’d like to use an app with multiple usernames. While this is possible for a few apps such as Twitter and Instagram, App Cloner lets you get this functionality for other services as well, such as Facebook and Skype. Sadly it doesn’t work with WhatsApp, but it works for most other apps, and the good part is that you can change the name and icon of the duplicate app. Not only that, you can also remove widgets, unnecessary permissions, disable auto-start, etc., for the cloned app.
Google Maps is one of the most popular navigation apps, and now the search giant has added one more reason to use it even more. The app will let you book a cab from ride-hailing services like Ola and Uber directly, without the need of installing the respective apps. Additonally, you can also customise the icons for home and work locations.
Of late, the de facto messaging service WhatsApp has been adding some interesting features to its app, making it even more useful. The latest addition is the ability mark the text in the message as bold or italics, by putting it between asterisks or underscores respectively. The Facebook-owned service is now also offering the ability to send PDFs from Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.
Disney’s Magic Kingdom is aimed at children who love its characters such as Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, Goofy, etc. Developed by Gameloft, the title lets you play a protagonist to help bring magic back to the kingdom after an evil spell is cast by Maleficent. The game has various themes and characters, and lets you play against villains like Pete and Mother Gothel.

The premise of the title is that you have to traverse a 150-mile long path through the Bavarian forest near the border of the Czech Republic in Germany, which was one of the biggest centres of Glassworks and Brickworks back in 18th century. You’ll also need to produce glass and bricks, and collect wood, clay, etc., to construct buildings, and you can take help of five specialists for this purpose. The game can be played alone or with two to three people.
Total War Battles: KINGDOM is a real-time strategy game where you have to shape your land and expand it as much as possible, while building a powerful army.
