The most interesting and useful new items on Google Play for the month. maj-b1befb2.jpg” alt=”New apps and games for Android: the best of May” />
1. Console Launcher
Curious launcher for geeks and fans of mobile titles and retro projects. It gives your Android device a console-like interface to play games like on a PlayStation or Xbox.
The app can be used in a number of ways, if you have the right imagination. For example, if you install the program on a TV-box, add several games to it and connect a gamepad, you can get an impromptu game console with convenient control, as they say, from the couch.
And if you put the application on your smartphone and add a gamepad with a mount, the old device will turn into a kind of Nintendo Switch. The program is still raw, but it already works well and is actively developed.

An app for nostalgic music fans who don't know what else to listen to. You enter your year of birth and the program selects the most iconic songs that were popular during your youth. A time machine for music lovers.
Backtrack – Music NostalgiaChristoffer TörnroosPrice: Free
A very cool collection of minimalistic wallpapers containing over 500 files. And it continues to grow with every update. You can choose and apply a background for your home screen right from the app. All this looks much nicer than the standard Xiaomi wallpaper installer.
Don't you think that Google's Chrome with each update is acquiring inconvenient features that only interfere with its use? Take, for example, the replacement of the excellent image search with the completely obscure Google Lens. Or an extremely unintuitive grouping of tabs, added for no reason.
If you want to use Chrome without all these misunderstandings, and also without being tracked by Google, try Bromite. It is a browser based on the Chromium source code for Android. Its interface is completely identical to Chrome, but the program is devoid of all the intrusive additions of the Good Corporation. In addition, it is equipped with an ad blocker.

5. VK Messenger
If you are not a fan of social networks and use your account only to occasionally correspond with friends, it makes no sense to keep the full VKontakte client on your smartphone. You can do with one messenger. There are group chats, audio and video calls, stickers, music, photos, videos, sharing geolocation and files up to 2 GB and other necessary functions.

6. Chess Timer
A program with such a simple and cool idea that you wonder how no one thought of doing this before. This is a chess timer that displays two electronic dials facing each player.
You launch the app and start the game by tapping the screen with your opponent in turn to start and stop the countdown. A great way to play a blitz without a heavy and bulky chess clock.

2. Physics! Fun
This is not so much a game as a kind of anti-stress application. A sort of real-world simulator that allows you to create interactive geometric shapes that obey the laws of physics.
You can rivet balls, squares, cubes, rag dolls, particle clouds, and then make explosions, pushes and create gravity fields that will affect objects in one way or another. Stupid, but extremely exciting.
