We use multiple apps on a daily basis, and yet somehow we tend to miss a ton of useful apps. That’s why we’ve put together some awesome apps that you can try every month. Our list of the best free Android apps for April 2021 has a great photo editor, an app that lets you use your notification center as a place to be reminded, and one that gives your status bar some superpowers you don’t. have never even dreamed of. Here’s our list of the best free Android apps for April 2021.

1. Touch Retouch

Editing photos can be tedious and complicated. However, this app makes things much easier. Touch Retouch can remove lines, objects, imperfections and more with just one click. You can select the particular object that you don’t want to see in the image and use the tools provided by the app to remove the object without leaving any traces.

All those hours spent editing a simple photo just to remove a line you missed by clicking on the image can also be removed using the line removal tool. We found this app to have Photoshop quality tools which is great.

2. Selection

Selection allows you to select a particular sentence or paragraph from an article that you can then turn into a reminder. After selecting your paragraph, you can simply choose the Put in NC option and thereafter that particular paragraph will be pinned to your notification center. It becomes a very effective reminder for the tasks you need to accomplish.

The app saves every paragraph, which you can check out on its homepage, and you can add new reminders from there as well.

3. Super status bar

The status bar contains as many toggles and shortcuts. What if we told you that you can take a few outside with a simple gesture? The awesome status bar helps you personalize your notification panel in a way that not only makes it attractive but also creates shortcuts which can save you a lot of time.

You can change the look of your status bar to that of iOS, Android 10, or maybe some custom themes that the app has preloaded. You can even add gestures to the status bar such as adjusting the brightness or media volume and many other useful features.

4. Touch the locker

Have you ever been in a situation where you watch a series or video and accidentally go 10 seconds forward? Yes, we know, it’s very boring. While some media players give you an option that lets you lock your screen while watching any media, some don’t. For media players that don’t have this option, Touch Locker is your solution.

With just one touch, you can lock your screen and watch content without any interruptions. You can unlock the screen from the notification panel after you finish watching the video.

5. Fast cursor

Reaching the top half of your smartphone screens is getting harder and harder, thanks to manufacturers who have always sought to increase the size of phone screens. The quick slider helps you reach the farthest corners with a simple swipe on either side of your device. After swiping, a small cursor will appear on the screen that you can then point to your destination, then click the cursor again to open an app or play music, among other actions.

It also has a lot of customization settings. However, most of them are paid. If you end up enjoying the app, you may want to consider upgrading to the premium version.
