Apps of the Week: AccuWeather, aLogcat, Rival Knights and more!

Apps of the Week

Another week has come and gone, and that means it's the weekend and time for our Apps of the Week column. We use this column each and every week to show off a single app from each of the writers here at Android Central, alongside a quick description of why it's installed on our phone or tablet. As you can imagine we go through a good number of apps here, so if there's something good enough for us to keep installed, it must be doing something right.

Read along with us this week and see the apps we have installed and want to show off — we have a few games, some utilities for media, a weather app and a few odds and ends on top of that. You might just find an app (or four) to install for yourself this week.

Android Keyboards

Tap away to your heart's content with these great keyboards for your Android device

One of the perks Android users have long since enjoyed is the ability to switch out the stock keyboard for a more preferable third-party solution. As the years have passed, the selection has got bigger and the quality of the apps available has continued to improve.

So, while our iOS using friends will still have to wait until iOS 8 arrives to try these things themselves, on Android we've got a pretty good selection to choose from. And here we round up some of the very best.

Google Now gives you one-tap access to music apps after searching for artists

20
Google Now

Google has rolled out an update to the Google Now service that lets you launch your currently-installed music apps with just one tap after making a search for a musical artist. Simply make a search through Google Now for an artist of your choice, and underneath information about them you'll see a "Listen on your apps" section with links to any apps that can play music fro the artist. For us, we see YouTube, Google Play Music and TuneIn radio, and when you tap on one it opens the app to that artist's page. Pretty slick.

The feature is only available in the U.S. for now, but we could easily see it expanding to other regions once the proper hooks are put in place to know what music apps are available in the region you're currently in. You don't need a specific update to the Google Search app to make this work either, making it even easier to roll out to new regions.
