This week's New App Recap is all about variety, with a new way to keep tabs on your blood pressure, HD mobile playback from Amazon, a pair of titles focusing on podcasting and playing guitar, updates to Last Pass and DataMan Next, and a GIF-making app from the folks at Path. Some of it is even features companion apps for the Apple Watch! Let's kick off the merry month of May with another round of new and updated apps!
The Apple Watch has finally arrived, at least onto the wrists of those lucky enough to place early preorders. We've spent as much time as possible putting as many of the 3,000-plus available apps through their paces as we could. The result is a list of 20 that we consider to have successfully lived up to the potential of the watch, ranging from financial and search apps to keeping a journal, buying gas, dining out, and more. If you have an Apple Watch, don't miss out on these 20 extremely useful Apple Watch apps!
The Apple Watch won't be out until Friday, but there are plenty of fresh apps for your current iOS devices to keep you occupied until then. This week's collection of the best new and updated apps includes a new two-track audio recorder, a hot update to Tumblr, a popular Mac music player now on iPhone, a pair of new Office 365 companion apps, and new ways to keep tabs on your iOS device, write notes, get out of bed, and get alerted. Without further ado, let's jump into this week's New App Recap!
DiskWarrior 5 is the latest release of a revered Mac utility dating back to the late ’90s. The software repairs and rebuilds damaged disk directories, the roadmap computers use to find files and folders scattered across all of those platters. Optimized, error-free directories provide faster file access, fewer spinning beach balls, and a generally more pleasant experience.
It finally feels like spring is in the air, and we're celebrating with another collection of new and updated apps! Relive childhood memories of trading Star Wars cards with friends, unlock your Mac just by approaching with your iPhone, edit photos, schedule events with your Google account, tweak geolocation or time and date metadata on images, walk, ride, or drive somewhere new, watch your kid become Rembrandt, or just discover a new movie with the latest edition of our New App Recap!
Our final edition of the New App Recap for the month of February has a little something for everyone: A look at the rebranded IFTTT and a trio of new apps that hook into the service, how to turn three photos into a cool little video, better ways to track your footsteps and calculate math, plenty of classic television, soccer chat with others around the world, and a way to track your cellular data usage. It's all right here in our weekly roundup of the best new and updated apps from last week!
Although iStat Menus is a favorite of many of the Mac|Life team, it’s fair to say it appeals to only a certain kind of user. If you don’t care about what’s going on inside your Mac, steer clear. But if you’re the sort of person who likes to keep an eye on your Mac’s performance, iStat Menus is the best monitoring utility we’ve seen.
iTunes Connect is off duty this week, so there are no new apps or updates being published until the weekend. In the meantime, we've got a heaping helping of great new apps worth checking out while developers are on break, including slick new ways to email or text, a better way to Instagram, how to find out where Apple Pay can be used, a new third-party keyboard, and much more! We'll be taking a break next week, so check back with us after the first of the year, and a happy holidays to all!
