Does the idea of public speaking send shivers down your spine? Then give this app a try. It's meant to simulate a meeting, a speech, a presentation, and similar stressful speaking situations, allowing you to test out your engagement on a virtual audience before getting to the real one. You can even import your own slides in to simulate your own talking points. Very cool.
The VirtualSpeech app will help you practice for public speaking events, by providing a photo-realistic environment to train in. Works with Google Cardboard.
Animated Audience - the audience move and behave as they would at a real event, adding to the level of distraction and recreating the fear of public speaking.
Stunning 360 3D Environments - selection of high quality conference rooms to train your public speaking skills in. Currently both a large and small conference room are available.
Sound Distraction - ambient sound in all conference rooms adds to the immersion and makes you feel like you are at the event.
Add Your Own Slides - Add your slides into the virtual conference room so that you can practice for an upcoming event. A short video tutorial on how to do this can be found here:
Lonely Planet is a popular source for local travelling guides and other information. This official app combines a mapping service with the well-regarded local information, but unfortunately, it doesn't have everything that the website offers. It's still fairly limited to the major tourist cities, though there are countries all over the world represented in the database.
Take Lonely Planet with you on your mobile device and get straight to the heart of where you’re going. Our city guides are the ultimate travel companion containing the best of our world-renowned expertise. Each city is curated by our travel writers – our voices on the ground – who live and breathe your city destination, and professionally review every place you see in our guides.
This is an app for people who are very, very interested in sneakers. I don't personally identify with that group, nor do I understand it. But since I obsess over computer keyboards and mice, tiny LEGO starship models, and the many varieties of salsa verde, I am in no position to judge. Shine on, you crazy diamonds... and please note that this app is only for cataloging and buying Nike brand sneakers.
Explore, buy and share the best of Nike sneakers, all in one place. From iconic classics to the latest releases, Nike SNKRS is the inside source for what you love most from Nike. Focus on what matters to you most. Create a customized feed by following your favorite sneaker franchises. Learn about the inspiration, benefits and heritage of featured sneakers with exclusive content, straight from the source.
If your group or company are big fans of the Microsoft Paint method of professional communication, they might appreciate Draw My Story. It's a simple art app that's designed with communication in mind, including tools for basic text, simple shapes, and even emoji (because everything needs emoji now). The app also supports rudimentary animations and video exporting options.
Draw My Story allows you to create unique animated drawings, presentations, game plan or instructional videos similar in style to Draw My Life videos on YouTube. Draw something cute, funny or informative and the app will replay your drawing back to you in the form of a movie. You can even add emojis, images & photos, choose background music and playback speed and record a voice-over. Once you are happy with your creation you can share it on any social platform that accepts video including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Whatsapp, Snapchat etc.
Android isn't hurting for alternate web browsers, but the oddly-named Flyperlink might be worth your attention. It tries to integrate itself into the larger operating system on a wide basis, including a minimized floating button and a lockscreen display option. Since the developers know that you probably use multiple browsers, it also includes an option to open specific URLs in a different browser or app. The premium $1 IAP enables a resizable floating window. (And no, we didn't include this app just because Android Police is featured in the screenshots. But it doesn't' hurt.)
Flyperlink is a revolutionary web browser optimized for multitasking on mobile devices.
• Link - Click on a link and select Flyperlink to open a floating web browser which shows its content
• Share - Use share button of other apps to open its content also in the floating browser
• Minimize - Move the bubble or use navigation keys to close content but keep it minimized in the bubble

Wow, is this really the first Sports Illustrated app to grace the Play Store? Apparently so - it's an official app that's deeply incorporated with SI.com and related properties.

Here's another in the seemingly endless line of proprietary video messaging apps. But Tribe has an interesting hook: its Windows Phone-style interface, wherein you press and hold to record a "selfie" message and release to send it. The idea is that you can select options and send canned messages with a single hand. It supports group messages, images, and most of the other standard tools, and according to the app description, messages are deleted from the developer's servers immediately.
For the first time in your chatting history, you'll be able to :
Free one hand to send messages when you carry a coffee, an umbrella or a suitcase.
Walk and chat simultaneously with one person or more.
Stay safe. We delete every message from our database after being opened.
Handle many conversation faster than you ever did through a colourful and lightweight interface.
Talk with contacts from another timezone without scheduling.
Get location-based context from messages like weather and distance.
Feel something at every single message you watch.
Avoid every single mistakes. Even from the auto-correct.
There's an old joke that Instagram is just a place for people to post photos of food. Well this Instagram clone really is just a place for people to post photos of food. It includes an integrated social network called, I kid you not, "Taste Buds." I'm not making any of this up.
We've decided to re-define our name at the dish level... Toast is now Dysh. Instantly find and share the best dyshes anywhere. Get #DyshApp and experience life by the dysh.
Think of Dysh as your hub of grub. We are THE place for food lovers to:
- Get straight to photos and ratings of the dyshes themselves

- Prove your expertise in making dysh recommendations
- Keep track of all of your culinary adventures
- Discover your next favorite meal (you know, that one that you will CRAVE nightly after having it for the first time)
This app gives you promotional codes for free Play Store apps. Not specific apps, just apps in general. It passes along codes that developers offer for free in a randomized fashion. Your odds of wining aren't mentioned in the app itself, but hey, it's free.

Gamebattles allegedly allows players to participate in popular video games and compete for cash. Considering the "xXFailScope360Xx" gamertag in the screenshot, it's entirely possible that they're serious. The official Android app allows players to view their stats across different PC and console titles, as well as schedule matches ahead of time.
GameBattles is the largest cross platform online eSports gaming tournament system with over 10 million registered players and 100 console and PC titles, including Call of Duty, Halo, Gears of War, Rocket League, NBA 2k, Madden NFL, NHL, FIFA, Smite, and many more.

Verizon already had an app for Fios customer management, but for some reason they decided to make a new one (with a new listing). This app includes all of the usual account information, plus call management, voicemail, and even texting for numbers that support it. It also includes some information on your local Wi-Fi network, assuming you're using the default router/modem combo from Verizon.
