It’s Sunday, the day of the week when Cult of Android brings you its report on some of the best apps we have been using throughout the past week.
This week we have been trying out a very useful office suite, a helpful discovery tool, a pretty handy widget and last but not least, a gorgeous live wallpaper.
Quickoffice has been available to purchase on Android for three years, and following Google’s acquisition of the popular office suite application last year, the team at Mountain View HQ officially announced that the service is now free for everyone on Android.
The fully-functioned Quickoffice app essentially provides users with a mobile copy of Microsoft Office, which enables them to create, edit and view Office documents stored both locally on their Android devices and in the cloud.
One of the best things about Quickoffice is its formatting layout. Unlike any other office suite on the Play Store, Quickoffice allows its users to edit documents that have been created on another device without compromising the format; meaning that their documents will look great regardless of the platform on which they are being viewed.
Quickoffice is free to download on Google Play, and you can grab it by clicking here.
CPU-Z is a very simple, yet effective tool to discover information about a handset’s system-on-chip (SOC), battery, RAM, GPU and sensors without ever having to search the internet for a detailed specification sheet.
This application provides its users with the name, architecture and clock speed for each core of their device’s SOC; this is particularly useful if they need to know the devices ins and outs, in order to see if it’s capable of running certain applications. Users will also be provided with a detailed range of system information, including the devices brand, model, screen resolution, RAM, built-in storage and the exact positioning of the built-in sensors.

Battery Solo Widget:
Battery Solo is a clean and informative battery widget for any Android smartphone or tablet running Android 1.6 Donut and above. The widget provides users with a real-time insight into their battery performance directly on their home screen.
If users are running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or later they will have the ability to install a resizable widget, which will enable them see a variety of detailed information, including; Battery Level, Battery Temperature, Battery Voltage, Battery Status, Battery Technology and Battery Health.
In addition, users will also be given the option to switch to a “graph view,” where they will be greeted with a line graph consisting of their current battery usage, and a prediction of their battery consumption for the rest of the day.

Galaxy Note 8 Live Wallpaper:
No “Apps of The Week” would be complete without a live wallpaper, and this week our pick is Galaxy Note 8.
The concept of this background is rather simple, once installed your wallpaper will be changed to Samsung’s traditional 8.0 feather image, and if you tap on the screen a water droplet materializes.
Unfortunately, there are adverts included, but thankfully they are only housed in the wallpaper’s settings.
