Welcome to version 441 of Android Apps Weekly. Here are the top headlines from the past week:

  • The first round of the James Webb Telescope began rolling out this week. They are very beautiful, and they also provide excellent wallpapers. If you’re interested, we’ve written a quick tutorial with links to full-resolution images.
  • WhatsApp released a new feature this week. You can now reply to WhatsApp messages with any emoji. At first, I was limited to about half a dozen different emojis. This limitation is now gone.
  • Google released Android 13 beta 4 this past week. There is not much on this subject worth mentioning. It is basically a release candidate for Pixel devices. However, beta 4 should be the last beta before the full release. Hold on to your hats, they’ll come sooner rather than later.
  • Microsoft is already making plans for Windows 12. Reportedly, the company is aiming for a 2024 release or roughly three years after Windows 11. This will make it a three-year release cycle. This is a similar time frame between Windows 7 and 8 and then again between 8 and Windows 10. We’ll see what happens.
  • Google launched Chrome OS Flex this week. It allows you to run Chrome OS on a Windows or macOS device. Google has documented it to work on more than 400 devices currently on the market. This is a big problem, especially if you love to run Android apps or games on your PC. Click on the link to find out more.

Charlie in Underworld

price: Free / $3.99

Charlie in Underworld is the latest visual novel game from Buff Studios. This is an offshoot of Underworld Office, another visual novel from the developer. It features a shocking story, choices that affect the story, and more. The visual novel means there aren’t a lot of mechanics. You are mostly supposed to enjoy the story and make decisions based on how it goes. The story is good too. We appreciate that Buff Studios is working on the story more than its previous visual novels.

lights of fate

price: free

Destiny Lights is a social network of sorts. Allows you to send or receive lanterns anonymously. Basically, a lantern is like a case update. You click on the floating lanterns in the UI and you get a random update from someone. The app also tracks your location so you can see how many people around the world have read your update. It is meant to be a positive thing. Some people look for positivity, and some try to spread it. We don’t see it replacing Facebook, but it’s a different idea and not a bad one.

Saint Seiya: The Legend of Justice

price: free to play

Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice is an idle RPG that takes place in the world of Saint Seiya. There are also some gacha elements. You summon knights, use them in combat, and advance through the game. Some parts of the game progress while not playing, so you always come back for something new. It has the same problem as many idle games where it makes a lot of progress at first, then recurs a bit once it hits the grinding wall. It’s not bad as far as idle games are concerned, but RPG fans might end up bored with this one.

price: Free / $5+ per month

Linktree is a dynamic website. You’ve probably seen the links if you play MMORPGs or go to TikTok. The company has launched an official mobile app where you can create and manage your profile. There are preset themes, a bunch of items you can add to customize your profile, and more. We might say that’s an apt use, but everyone else on TikTok and some MMOs use it, so we expect this one to be very popular.

Armies of World War: WW2

price: free to play

World War Armies: WW2 is a multiplayer online strategy game. Basically, you are building an army and taking on another player in battle. Battles help you earn upgrades, and upgrades help you win more matches. The mechanics are very powerful, and the game is not difficult to play. However, there are some unit balancing issues. In general, it is very suitable for fans of strategy who like to compete.
