Our pick of the best new apps to try in June 2019
The Tor Project has been around for quite a while, yet it wasn’t until the start of this month that a stable version surfaced on the Google Play Store. For those looking to surf the internet secretly, without the majority of the tracking, cookies and data sharing that goes with the likes of Chrome, the Tor Browser is an ideal choice. In addition to the fact that this one of the most privacy-focused web browser accessible on Android, but it’s also one of the latest to use. I’d love to share some real screenshots with you, taken from my own phone, yet such is the dimension of security in the Tor Browser, I actually can’t! Here are some given by the developer instead.
The Tor Browser highlights multi-layered encryption, the hindering of trackers, and it is resistant to fingerprinting prompts and biometric data gathering. The Tor Project itself is an organization developing free and open source software for privacy and freedom online.
Shazam (with new Pop-Up feature)
Without a doubt, I know what you are thinking: ‘Shazam? That’s not actually new, mate.’ But hear me out. Just this month, Shazam revealed a new version of its app that totally changes the game when it comes to recognizing music. As of recently, if you needed to know what song you were listening to, you had to point your phone’s microphone at an outside audio source and let Shazam do its thing. If you had your headphones in, you’d need to unplug them. If the song was playing on a commercial or podcast on your phone, tough luck. Presently, that is all about to change.
The new version of Shazam can distinguish tracks that are playing on your smartphone without turning the volume up. It uses a new bubble system, where you can simply drag and drop the Shazam logo onto the territory of your screen and the app will ‘listen’ to the audio being produced. It’s an absolute game-changer for music fans.
Video Downloader for Pinterest
Pininterest is famously severe with regards to enabling users to save pictures and video that have been uploaded onto its platform. However, a new app, released for the current month, lets you grab Gifs and videos with effortlessly. Video Downloader for Pinterest implies you can share your preferred content with your friends without the need to experience Pinterest’s official share button. It is especially useful if you don’t have a better internet connection yet still have a page cached on your browser or app.
