A new app to discover interesting blogs and newsletters, a social medium to chat with others about podcasts and a brand new app for book lovers. In this weekly overview of the best Android apps, we also consider a new puzzle game, Spotify and the NOS.
The internet is full of interesting blogs and newsletters, but how do you discover them? The new app Wortharead believes it has the answer. After creating an account, you indicate your interests (such as sports, economics or self-development), after which the app serves all kinds of interesting publications.
It is great that you can also discover (paid) newsletters on Substack in Wortharead. More and more journalists are switching to these types of platforms because, for example, they have more freedom than with large media companies. In addition to discovering newsletters and blogs, Wortharead also allows you to keep up to date with new articles via the built-in RSS function.

Sixit is a cute puzzle game with a twist. You can only make six moves per puzzle. Are you unable to resolve this within this leeway? Then you have to start over. The game forces you to use your freedom of movement sparingly and to think creatively.
In Sixit, you take on the role of Pep, an intelligent forest dweller who must ensure that an oncoming storm does not wash away his entire village. You do this by unraveling the mysteries of the forest using, yes, puzzles. There are in-app purchases in the game, but you can download the game for free.

A cross between Facebook and your favorite podcast app: that’s PodRoom. Podcasts are central to this app. So you can listen to audio shows, discover new shows or genres, and follow podcast creators to keep you up to date with new episodes.
What makes PodRoom unique is that you can chat with fellow listeners. That way you can, for example, have a live chat about the show, or have a drink afterwards. Extra cool is that with PodRoom you can enter into a conversation with makers. That way you can go deeper into the show, for example, or find out something about their personal life.
