Every week, hundreds of new 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. Remindee

Remindee is a reminders app that allows you to create app-based reminders. This is not a reminder app for things like “take out the trash at 8 PM.” Reminders are created by sharing from other apps. Found a cool YouTube video? Use Remindee to remind yourself to watch it later.

4. HackCell

HackCell is an interesting take on the Tower Defense genre. Place the generators efficiently to build stronger units and defend your position. Upgrade and mix units that have various skills.

5. Finger Driver

Finger Driver is a one-finger driving game that seems super simple, but it’s actually kinda tough. Instead of moving your finger back and forth to steer, like you would in most games, you have to move a steering wheel to control your direction. Don’t run into the walls or you’re dead.
