Every week, hundreds of Android apps and games are submitted to the Play Store. If you’re not paying attention 24/7, it’s easy to miss some of the best stuff. Each week we will highlight five of the best new or overlooked apps and games. You’re sure to find some hidden gems in these recommendations. Go forth and download!

1. Conscient

Conscient is a very simple automation app that lets you launch certain apps whenever certain conditions are met. It uses Google’s Awareness API to detect conditions. A simple example is having a certain app open every time you plug in headphones, but Conscient can do even more powerful tasks. You could have Pokemon GO launch every time you go for a walk, or have Google Maps open when you’re driving.

The customization doesn’t end there. You can also use a photo as the background and show your battery percentage. It’s highly customizable and the best part is it doesn’t require root access.

5. Duck Roll


Duck Roll is an aptly named game that requires you to roll a duck through over 100 puzzles. Each puzzle offers a new challenge. It starts with simple blocks that need to be moved so you can cross platforms. As the game progresses the puzzles get more difficult and the items get more complicated. The real trick is to solve the puzzle in the number of rolls listed in the corner of the screen. If you can do that, you’re a real duck rolling master.
