Android

Sunnycomb

Our Favorite Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

Billing itself as a community of weather enthusiasts, Sunnycomb gives you the standard temperature, humidity, and precipitation report, but bolsters it with user-generated pictures and "emotional details" of the weather where you are (or where you're going). It's been an iOS favorite in Japan, but now Sunnycomb branches out to the world—and to Android. [Free]

LeBron

Our Favorite Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

I'm not really sure what the purpose of this one is, so I'll let the app's description speak for itself: LeBron shares his life on his phone, but he's putting it down to focus on the playoffs. Don't want to miss out? Don't worry, we got you. Get an all-access pass to LeBron's game, life, and journey with never-before-seen content and clips throughout the playoffs.

Fleksy Keyboard

Our Favorite Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

A complete overhaul brings brand new design and a whole bunch of slick gestures, intelligent spell-checking, and keyboard layout options to your iPhone. If you're sick of autocorrect trying to convince you to use "ducking" in conversation, give Fleksy's new keyboard a try. [Free]

Vhoto

Our Favorite Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

It's inevitable: you go to take a picture, and everybody's in the perfect spot—until about 3 milliseconds before the camera snaps. Then, you blink, or sneeze, or someone walks by, and the shot's ruined. Vhoto makes that a problem of the past. Simply take a few seconds of video (or input a video you've already recorded), and Vhoto lets you scroll through to find the perfect frame to turn into a photo. So you can stop looking half-asleep in all your selfies. [Free]


Windows Phone

SplitPic

Our Favorite Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

What happens when you need to access a file on your computer, but all you've got nearby is your Windows Phone? If you've got Tonido on both devices, all you've gotta do is open the app, and you can browse or download any file you've got on your computer. Easy. [Free]
