The Best Apps of July 2017


Welcome to the second entry of Best Apps, Harvey Norman’s new feature that keeps you up to date with all of the biggest app releases from the past month. In today’s blog we’ve got a parental control app, Google’s Motion Stills plus a pretty impressive cloud gaming service.


Kidgy is a parental control and family locator app. It allows parents to monitor their kid’s location via a GPS tracker, set tasks and alarms such as ‘brush your teeth’, and monitor incoming and outgoing texts and calls on their kid’s smartphone. It also adds a Panic Button to the child’s phone that sends an SOS message with the child’s current GPS location in the event of an emergency. Download it for free on iOS and Android now.

Motion Stills

Google finally launched the Android version of its Motion Stills app earlier this month. The iOS version of this popular app has been out for over a year and Android users can now also enjoy the various features this photography app offers including the ability to create looping GIFs and combine clips into movies. Motion Stills is available to download on iOS and Android now.


LiquidSky is a pretty awesome cloud gaming service that lets users run PC games on their Android device via the LiquidSky app. Simply download the app, open an account and you’ll be able to hook up a controller and start playing some of the biggest PC games including Fallout 4, Call of Duty, The Witcher 3, Rocket League and more. As LiquidSky is a bring your own game service, a registered account with a digit gaming platform like Steam or Blizzard is required to play games. LiquidSky is currently in beta and is available to download for devices supporting Android 6.0+ now.

For the very best in smartphones, shop in-store or online.
