In Pictures: Android apps of the week ending December 9

Highlights and lowlights from the Google Play Store’s “trending” section, fast-moving freebies and more.

From the “trending” section

Google Play puts apps that have seen a major upswing in installs during the past 24 hours in the “trending” section of the store. However, this seems to be a calculation based on percentages rather than raw value, so you get some strange stuff on there. First up this week is AppLock Free, which apparently lets you set pattern locks on specific Android apps. Also, it apparently needs a lot of permissions and serves ads unless you buy the premium version for $2. Sounds…great?

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
