So, we have a couple of new apps that suggest interesting activities nearby — no matter whether you are on a trip or bored in your hometown, Nintendo's first entry into the mobile world, a really cool Wikipedia reader, and a few more fresh apps. Check them out below, let us know which ones you liked, and certainly do tell if there's an awesome new app you know of, but we managed to miss!
New for iOS
New apps for iPhone
This is a powerful graphic and photo editor with lots of features and a pretty intuitive, easy to use interface. If you're just looking to dabble into image editing on mobile, need something to kill time with, or do genuine work on while on the go – certainly give this one a spin.
2. Conrad Wise
Conrad is an animated character who is, apparently, incredibly wise. In reality, he's a web crawler that checks up on topics that you ask it about. The UI is built to resemble a chat app, so it feels like you are "talking" to Conrad about various topics you are interested in.
This app allows you to create virtual tours for landmarks around your location – be it text, audio, video, or even creating picture postcards. Other users of the app can check out your guides, as well as any other guides for the area, whenever they are visiting. It's a social media meets tour guide apps sort of thing.
This app will automatically notify friends and relatives when you are in town and able to set up a meet. It uses your phone's "last known location" information, so its location tracking is as battery-friendly as can be. Use it when traveling to let others know when you've touched down, or when you are close to arriving.
Another social network, this time for film fans. Like IMDB, you can follow films, check out the top-rated or most anticipated movies, write reviews, or follow your favorite reviewers.
6. Family Premiere
With this app, you can choose some of your best photos and upload them for real human editors to create beautiful clips out of. Unlike offerings, such as Google's Photos, or HTC's Zoe, where the collage videos are built by an algorithm, which is sometimes off, you will presumably get an artistic touch to your memorabilia. You will get a full HD movie within 7 days of ordering, and price is on a per photo or per video minute basis.
Daycap requires you to take photos via the app throughout your day. It will then automatically stitch them in a GIF, so you can share it in its fast-scrolling glory with your friends, or keep as memorabilia. It can be linked to your Instagram account; for any other sharing – you'd have to do it manually.
8. Tagsagram Lite
Tagsagram will let you find the most relevant and famous hashtags to tag your pictures with, potentially allowing you to reach wider audiences. The app supports Instagram integration and lets you easily edit your hashtags in your posts, instead of having to type each one manually.
New for Android
New apps for Android
This app lets you book thousands of activities all around the world. Be it for a cruise, or just something fun to do around town, it's a good idea to check if WhaToDo has any offers that might interest you, since the service prides itself in offering exclusive promotions from their partners.
Nintendo's first mobile app is... not a game. It is, in fact, a chat client, which allows you to create a mini avatar of your own, big head and everything, and have it interact with your friends' avatars in their own little virtual world.
3. PlayStation Video
If you regularly buy or rent movies on your PS at home, you can now watch these on your mobile, too. A pretty cool offering from Sony, which should help it stay in the same court as other video streaming services, like Netflix or HBO's GO.
This is a pretty cool-looking weather forecast app. Unlike the plentiful simplistic apps that have been popping up as of late, this one packs quite a lot of information, such as atmospheric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, yet still manages to do it with a flat, simplistic interface. It also features a long-term, 10-day forecast, can show you multiple locations on-screen, and offers a few different skins.
This app allows you to follow the changelogs of all the apps you currently have on your phone, without having to visit their Play Store pages. It's useful for those moments when you happen to binge-update a dozen different apps and are only later curious to find out "what's new?".
6. Go for Reddit
Material Design meets Reddit – this is yet another well-made Reddit browsing app for your Android device. If you haven't set your heart on one already, definitely give this one a spin.
Many Windows PCs have biometric sensors for fingerprint unlocking, and many smarphones do. But Macs don't – at least not yet. This app will let you link your Android (Marshmallow) device to your Mac and allow the former to unlock the latter after a quick fingerprint scan. Neat-o!
