The 4 Best Android Apps and Games of the Week (Edition #27 2021)

Test your smartphone’s water resistance, avoid traffic fines and explore a fictional Norwegian island. You can check that and more in this weekly overview of the best Android apps, games and updates.

1. Water Resistance Tester

Water Resistance Tester falls firmly into the category of ‘useful things we didn’t know you could do with an app’. The app tests the integrity of your Android phone’s IP67/IP68 rating, using the barometer in your smartphone. Download the free app and follow the on-screen prompts. You will then receive a number that indicates how water resistant your smartphone still is.

Over time, the water-resistant seals in your smartphone wear out. As a result, the water resistance slowly decreases. Water Resistance Tester is therefore especially useful for people with an older smartphone.

2. Flash Master

Have you already installed the most recent update of Flitsmeister? The latest version of the much-loved traffic app includes many useful improvements. For example, Flitsmeister for Android Auto will be expanded with alternative routes. Handy if you need to pick up something somewhere along the way, for example. Thanks to a new calendar link, when planning a route, the location of a future appointment is also shown.

From now on, Flitsmeister users will also be able to see the maximum speeds during work. Traffic fines run rampant when the road is under construction, so we are very happy with this addition.

3. Spotify

Where Spotify for iOS received a major update this week to allow music offline via a Apple Watch In order to be able to stream, the music app has also rolled out a nice update for Android smartphones. An old feature that many users greatly missed is back! It’s about the downward swipe in playlists that brought up the search bar.


Spotify decided in 2018 to scrap the function from the app. Users were not happy and kept asking for the feature to return. Now the time has finally come.

4. Embracelet

Embracelet is a popular adventure game that was already available for the Nintendo Switch, but has recently been ported to Android. The visuals have an original style, which fits well with the Norwegian island you have to explore. Within the game you can explore some unique stories. Keep in mind that it is not a game for children. Embracelet is a title with some mature themes, so don’t let the plain graphics fool you.

Another thing: the game is quite pricey. The game is for sale for 7 euros. As far as we are concerned, an extensive game with beautiful graphics and an in-depth story is worth something, but that is of course completely personal.
