Every week, we share a number of downloads for all platforms to help you get things done. Here were the top downloads from this week.
Chrome: Facebook collects a lot of your data, but you might never get to see what they really learn about you. Data Selfie aims to give you a glimpse by letting you analyse your own Facebook usage.
Chrome: Favicons are great in browsers because they make it easy to discern one site from another in your tabs at a glance. Gmail Sender Icons takes that same approach to your Gmail’s inbox.
Android: If you use a Bluetooth headset with your phone, you’ll want to know when its battery is about to die. BatON can monitor your accessories and give you a notification when you need to charge them.
iOS: Becoming a parent can really put a damper on your relationships with friends, but meeting up gets easier if your friends are also parents. A new app, Peanut, aims to help women find “mama” friends through a Tinder-like interface.
Android/iOS: When you’re looking forward to an event, you can’t help but get excited watching the days tick by. Countdown helps you keep track of everything you’re looking forward to in one neat-looking app.
iOS/Android: Hiking is a great way to exercise and explore the outdoors at the same time. ViewRanger is a free app that shows you nearby trails and tells you everything you need to know about them.
Android: The kernel in your operating system handles a lot of low-level tasks like managing your CPU speed. Most users will never want to touch this, but if you’re a tweaker with a desire to overclock your phone, Universal Kernel Manager can be a huge help.
Android: If you want to let someone read or watch something on your phone, but don’t want them snooping around, Touch Lock can make sure they can’t do anything by locking the touch screen.
Chrome: When you want to visit a website without being tracked, Incognito mode can log you out and prevent most tracking. However, you lose your extensions by default. Fortunately, you can enable them.
