The Play Store is an endless resource for apps of all kinds where many new apps are added every week. So where to start when you want to discover something new? AndroidPIT of course. Without further ado, here’s our picks of the week.
Batman: The Enemy Within
Eagerly awaited by bat-fans since last month, Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within is finally available at the Google Play Store. ‘Episode 1: The Enigma’ features Bruce Wayne and Batman taking on new roles against the Riddler, while ‘Episode 2: The Pact’ goes deeper into the bigger picture with the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of the Joker. The caped crusader must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne also questions who he can turn to.
You can play Episode 1 for free, or get a season pass for all five episodes for just $ 14.99. You can also buy each of the five episodes separately.
For several years now, Microsoft has been releasing its most popular desktop applications for Android. Microsoft’s new Launcher is part of this new strategy. The app sports a modern clean look inspired by iOS with easy access to frequently used apps and other elements on the left side of the home screen. You can customize your device with wallpapers, theme colors, icon packs. And with a Microsoft account, you can also access your calendar, documents and recent activities in your personalized feed.
Microsoft Launcher can also display shortcuts on the desktop. Finally, just like with Microsoft Edge, you can even use it to open photos, documents and web pages on your PC.

For all you video fans, Camcorder is a really simple app that records video in VHS quality. It doesn’t get any more plug-and-play as there really only is one setting. You get some neat image fluttering and the quintessential 90’s timestamp at the bottom. Cool thing is you can also import videos to add the effect and it works both on frontal and rear cameras.

FONDO – 4K Wallpapers
Android is all about customizing right? Not every Android enthusiast wants to get deep into rooting or modding the OS, nor does anyone feel their creative calling through finding the right icon shape with just the right background aesthetics. Fortunately, for many of us mere mortals, there are tons of wallpaper apps that rock. FONDO is brand new and what makes it cool is the fact that the wallpapers are created in-house by the company’s team of designers and they’re all available in stunning 4K quality.
