Android 4.1 Jellybean brought about many changes that Android users loved. Not only was the entire experience smoother, faster, and more enjoyable, it introduced a user interface unlike any we’ve seen so far.
Not only that, Android users were also greeted with Google Now, which has been proven as a faster and more pleasant-sounding voice assistant compared to the famous Siri on the iPhone.
While these changes were amazing, the changes to the system applications were almost as amazing.
Below you’ll find four of the best system app changes that you’ll surely want to know about:
- Play Magazines
This application was introduced with Jellybean, and people who enjoy reading will get plenty of use out of this app.You can read all of your favorite magazines right from your smartphone or tablet, some of which are completely free. The ones that you need to pay for are also not very expensive, so you have nothing to lose.
- Play Movies and TV
Presumably trying to cash in on the market that uses Netflix, Play Movies and TV allows you to watch television and movies right from your device.The best part about this app is that you can download your movies and shows and use them on any device running Android Jellybean, because your items are linked to your Google account.
The best part is that movies are as low as $4.99 for HD quality, and you can buy entire seasons of TV shows for as low as $10. Not bad!
This is another new app, and you’ll find that it allows you to read all of your favorite news all in the same place.Let’s say you read CNN, NY Times, and Cnet all the time. Rather than visiting a whole bunch of websites that aren’t that great on mobile devices to begin with, you can shuffle between them in a smooth, fast app. It’s all free, too!
- Play Books
Like with the other apps, you can download books right to your device and read them whenever you like. Much like how the Kindle Fire and its app store allows you to buy books and read them on the go, the Play Books app does a similar thing, but you can do it cross-platform, not just on one device.Prices vary, but you’ll find digital books to be less expensive than physical books.
There you have it. These four new Android apps are sure to make your life easier.
