Bitmoji: App of the Week

Bitmoji app

Today’s featured app brings the next generation of emoticons.

Bitmoji (the company behind the popular Bitstrips comics) has spiced up emoji’s and made them more about you.

Coined “Your Avatar Emoji,” Bitmoji creates a personalized and expressive cartoon version of yourself that becomes the star across a massive library of reactions, statements and expressions, complete with all the internet memes and pop culture references you can handle.

Bitmoji can be easily added to popular messaging apps on both Android and iOS and shared on social apps like Facebook and Twitter. You can even show off your stickers to friends who haven’t yet installed the app!

GasBuddy: App of the Week

GasBuddy helps you find the cheapest gas prices nearby.

Available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone, GasBuddy relies on user submissions to list current pump prices at stations all around you. You can switch between a list or map view and quickly compare prices to get the best possible deal when filling up.

The GasBuddy app is free and simple to use. Learn more in Kyra’s review below.

Trepn Profiler: App of the Week

Trepn Profiler gives you detailed insights into the power and performance of apps on your smartphone. It was just released by Qualcomm, the makers of the popular Snapdragon processors you’ll find in a slew of Android devices today.

If you’ve noticed your phone starting to slow down or run out of battery quicker than before, Trepn Profiler helps you figure out what’s going on behind the scenes. The main page includes preset profiles that run in the background to identify apps that drain your battery, hog your CPU or use excess data.

It’s great for developers and anyone interested in digging a little deeper into the impact of apps on your smartphone. Go grab it for free on Google Play.

PS: Five points to whoever can tell us what the heck Trepn means.

The latest Ting Download helps you save on your cell phone bill without requiring any sort of effort.

Opera Max is a free app that automatically reduces your cellular data usage up to 50% by compressing data downloaded over the mobile network. It works with the majority of popular apps, including Instagram, Google Chrome, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube and Netflix. We’ve also tested Pokemon Go and noticed some savings – it’s minimal (18.8 MB used with 0.7 MB in savings), but it all adds up!

You can also manage your apps’ mobile data access (like restricting foreground or background data), monitor your data consumption within each app and much more.

Opera Max is currently only available on Android smartphones. For a similar app on iOS, check out Onavo Extend.
