This week's New App Recap has a clear focus on reinvention, as several apps in our lineup have been rebooted, refreshed, or otherwise reinvented with new versions that offer a fresh new look and feel. But don't change that dial, because we've also got a few new discoveries as well — so without further ado, let's dive in!
With the rumored iWatch apparently on the horizon, health and fitness appears to be on the mind of many developers, including WebMD, who launched a new health improvement program this week as part of their free iPhone app. Much like the upcoming iOS 8 Health app, WebMD can now work with biometric devices such as Fitbit or UP by Jawbone to gather data, create goals, and stay healthy. As it turns out, we've got a bit more on that very subject in our Thursday recap as well...
With a gorgeous interface and a good developer pedigree, we had high hopes for Scanbot. There's a clean, simple aesthetic that runs through every screen, helping you capture and organize your documents with ease. The priority here is speed, as Scanbot's foolproof interface can attest to, but it doesn't come at the expense of professional features, including high-resolution output, a low-light indicator, and automatic edge detection. Our final products weren't always perfect, but the powerful cropping tool and one-touch enhancer fine-tuned things nicely.
Our morning recap is bursting at the seams with app updates! Developers have been busy this week throwing out a volley of App Store enhancements for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps, and we've managed to nab 'em all in our net and distill them down into the best and brightest — so read on before you head off for the weekend!
