In this section, we bring some of the best apps in a different category from Google Play Store every month.
Here we are going to see Best Free Apps of Feb 2019.
VHS Camcorder Lite (VHS Cam)
About a year ago, the VHS Camcorder app cost £3, but there’s now a free Lite version.
This provides you with tools, filters and effects to give your digital video clips an authentic1980s treatment, with a wobbly, throw back analogue look, complete with scan lines, videotape glitches and old fashioned burned-in date stamps. Even the controls themselves are retro.
The Lite version limits recording time to 20 second sand locks you out of advanced features.
To do Category
To-do apps are useful for organizing all aspects of our lives, which is why Any.do’s new smart shopping-list feature is well worth checking out.
It works with smart assistants such as Siri and Alexa, and lets you create multiple different lists for different shops. Not only that, but it automatically sorts grocery items into aisles and your lists can be easily shared with others.
Some users of the iOS version of Any.do have had the smart shopping list for a while but, with this latest update, it’s now widely available.
If you played games on any kind of computer in the 1990s, then the chances are that you have fond memories of Lemmings.
Now, thanks to this new free-to-play mobile game, everyone’s favourite little accident-prone, green-haired munchkins are back, and they still need to be guided through all manner of deadly traps, hazards and obstacles strewn in their path.
Lemmings has been ‘reimagined’ for the mobile era, which means that the game features new levels, modern graphics, support for touch controls, unlockable collectables and the ability to take part in online tournaments.
Naturally, there are also plenty of optional in-app purchases. Let’s go!
Mint is a new web browser from the Chinese electronics firm Xiaomi. You don’t need a Xiaomi handset or a phone running Xiaomi’s MUI operating system to use the app –Mint is compatible with pretty much any smartphone that runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) and above.
It offers most of the features you’d expect from a modern mobile browser, such as tabbed browsing, a pop-up blocker, incognito mode and voice search, but its chief advantages are its small size and fast speed.
Taking up just 10 MB of storage space on your phone or tablet, Mint is quick to launch and use. A reduced data mode speeds up browsing even more.

Whatever your feelings about the current state of the NHS, it’s clear that the service is trying to find new solutions that suit both patients and medical professionals. Take the new NHS App, for example.
Available for both iOS and Android, this free app lets you connect directly with your GP’s surgery. The idea is to allow patients to take more control of their medical information and the services they receive.
For example, patients can book and manage doctors’ appointments themselves via their mobile device. The app also lets you order repeat prescriptions and view your own medical records.
To make sure access to these is always secure, the app carries out checks to confirm your identity and will send a security code to your device each time you use the service.
Additionally, the NHS App comes Bundled with a handy symptom checker, and provides access to other useful advice and information.
Bear in mind that not all GP Surgeries are currently equipped to offer all the features available in the app –full use of the NHS App is being rolled out gradually across England over the next few months and it’s estimated that all surgeries will be connected to the service by July this year.
During setup, the app will check to see whether your GP’s surgery is currently able to use the app.
If it is, you’ll be able to create your own NHS login. If not, then you can register your email address so that you’ll be informed when your surgery is ready.
In the meantime, you can still use the app to check your symptoms and find out what to do if you need medical help urgently.
Google is rolling out a new update for its YouTube mobile app, which adds voice searches to the Android version of its online video-streaming service.
We know what you’re thinking –YouTube already has voice search on Android, courtesy of the mobile OS’s built-in support for voice input. Well, this one’s slightly different.
It’s a more powerful search tool that has been specifically designed for YouTube, allowing you to search different areas of the app –your search history or trending videos, for example, as well as simply finding videos by keyword.
