Apps

Win-X Launcher (No ads)

Win-X Launcher is an older listing, but since it’s yet to be covered in a roundup, we wanted to highlight it. As you can see, this is a launcher that mimics the look of Windows 10, start-menu, and all. Not only is this launcher a good choice for those that are already familiar with Windows (parents, grandparents), it’s also an excellent choice for those that simply want something different than what you normally find on Android. Best of all, the launcher is completely free to use, and there aren’t any ads. All in all, this is one of the better Windows-themed launchers on the Play Store, and since it’s free, everyone can check it out.

Hypernotes

Hypernotes is an early access release, and as you can see, it’s a note app. More specifically, this is a note app designed for teams to create official documents that read like wikis. So if you’re looking to compile all of your office’s notes in one place while utilizing a more structured flow such as a wiki layout, then Hypernotes should be on your radar. Best of all, the app is free to use for now, so it’s a good time to take a look.

Microsoft Whiteboard

Microsoft Whiteboard is just that, a whiteboard app from Microsoft. This is a simple app that works on phones and tablets alike, so whether you’d like to use a pen to take notes or your finger, you can, with ease. While it would appear this is nothing more than a glorified web app, it’s not like it offers a complicated set of tools that would require a native application. Sadly it would seem Microsoft has locked access to enterprise and school accounts even though the desktop app is accessible to all Microsoft accounts.

OSpace

OSpace is a new cloud storage app, and it comes from PNIX, with this being their first release. The app offers a social aspect, so you can easily share your files with friends and family, and you can even add an infinite number to these groups, should you feel the need. You can even create a chatroom for these members, though you’ll first have to convince everyone you know to switch to this unknown app, which is no easy feat.
