This week we've got a new lineup of App Store arrivals to help your devices get ready for spring. This week's New App Recap kicks off with updates to Penultimate and Moju, a new Lazoo drawing app for the kiddies, Adobe's new way to tell stories on the iPad, snapping and sharing photos and short videos, and a way to add alternate phone numbers to your smartphone safely and securely. Without further ado, let's jump straight into this week's offerings...
Even if it doesn’t feel like spring in your particular corner of the country, the boys of summer are ready to take the field. That’s right — it’s baseball season, and whether you're munching on peanuts and Cracker Jack at the ballpark or root-root-rooting for the home team from the comfort of your couch, if you're a fans you have the fever. So just like we did last year, we've collected our favorite apps for baseball fans, and the pickings weren't slim; so oil up the leather because we've got a whole new batch of games and apps for hardball lovers to add to their collection.
You may still be a bit skeptical the day after April Fools’ Day, but there's no trickery here! The games on our list this week are the real deal and provide something for everyone. Take a cane-jump down memory lane in DuckTales: Remastered or get a quick Metroidvania fix with Tiny Dangerous Dungeons. Have a blast with physics-based explosions in Gunpowder or help Little Red Riding Hood make it to grandma’s house in A Day in the Woods. Or why not just relax and deliver pizza in space in Pie in the Sky? These and many other great titles made our list so don’t be afraid to check them all out.
It’s that that time of year again. The flowers are blooming. The birds are chirping. And the IRS is making you sweat. If you're like us, you've probably but putting off filing your taxes for as long as possible, but tax season doesn’t have to leave you banging your head against the wall in frustration thanks to numerous helpful apps for your iPhone and iPad.
[UPDATED] With so many iPhone games out there, and more coming out all the time, it can be tough to know what titles you should check out. But don't fret — we've scoured the App Store for the best of the best and compiled a periodically updated list of the top 25 iPhone games out there. These are the games that everyone should know about. Don't leave home without them!
There are so many PDF creation and annotation apps for iOS, it’s hard to imagine how Adobe can still justify charging $449 for the desktop version of Acrobat Pro when solutions like PDFpen can perform most of the tricks from the comfort of a smartphone or tablet for under $20. With the arrival of PDFpen 2, this feature-to-price ratio becomes even more glaring.
Normally iTunes handles all of your Mac-to-iOS media-syncing needs, but there just might be a better way. A new Mac application, WALTR, has managed to find a way to circumvent iTunes’ rigid adherence to MP3/AAC and MP4 formats. The process is a model of simplicity: launch WALTR without iTunes running, plug in any supported iOS device, then drag and drop your files over.
Creativity is the theme of our New App Recap this week, with plenty of apps to design and invent. This edition kicks off with a new Creative Cloud-connected design app from Adobe, photo layouts from Instagram, more than 800 new photo filters, a way to slow down or speed up iOS videos, a kid-centric 3D design app, and Twitter's answer to Meerkat. The only problem now is finding the time to be able to play with all of these cool apps, so let's dig in straight away!
