Best new Android and iPhone apps of the week (November 10th - November 16th)

Another week has passed, and another heap of apps has been uploaded to the App Store and Play Store. For those who wish to try new apps on a regular basis, sifting through all of the new ones may be a daunting task. But fear not – we're here to help, as each week, we comb through the stores and pick some of the more eye-catching apps that are out there.

This week around, we have a really cool launcher for Android, YouTube Music has finally rolled out, and Firefox has hit iOS, among a few other apps. Head on down to check them out, and do tell us – which ones did you download, and did you like them? If you know of a brand-new app that deserves to be in this list, but we overlooked – drop us a line and we will find a way to have it mentioned in the future!

New for Android

HomeUX Beta

Price: free
Download for Android

HomeUX is a launcher, which puts all of your apps out on the homescreen. The top third of your display is covered by a floating action bar, which can store a few shortcuts to your most used apps, as well as customizable folders that help you sort and find your apps easier. It's a pretty cool, light, and fresh take on a launcher made for smartphones that are app-filled to the brim.

Apple Music

Price: free (subscription based)
Download for Android

Apple has finally launched its music streaming service on Android. You can download it and get a 3-month free trial to see what all the fuss is about right now, but do remember that you will be charged $9.99 if you forget to unsubscribe before the testing period is over.

New for Android and iOS

YouTube Music

Price: free (subscription based)
Download for Android | iOS

YouTube Music finally launched last week, and is available for both Android and iOS. The service is a mixture between the Play Music radio and YouTube itself – you will get custom-tailored playlists of music videos in accordance with your tastes. The app allows you to listen to audio only, if you wish to save on data, and will continue to play music even when the screen is off, unlike the “regular” YouTube.

Fallout C.H.A.T.

Price: free
Download for Android | iOS

One of the biggest game releases of the year — Fallout 4 — has come and gone, with its own set of companion apps on the app stores. Fallout C.H.A.T. is a messaging app, full of Fallout-specific smileys and GIFs and complete with a visual style, which adheres to the popular game's world. Great app to geek out with your friends and party mates!

Runtastic Results

Price: free (IAPs)
Download for Android | iOS

Runtastic Results will give you a quick, 12-week program to get you started on the road of getting in fit physical shape, without needing special equipment or visits to the gym. Its a nice gateway app for users who are ready to commit and take action to get fit, but are unsure where to start from. Just keep in mind that you will need to shell out $10 for Premium if you wish the app to actually be useful to its full extent.

New for iOS


Price: $2.99
Download for iOS

Relight is a photo enhancement and correction app, which focuses around HDR and the different effects you can achieve with the effect. Its functions range from a simple touch-up of the different exposures in an image, to full-blown artistic effects. It's also compatible with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus' 3D Touch, which enable some quick actions within the app.

Photo Blur Editor

Price: free
Download for iOS

A very simple, but effective blur tool, this app lets you zoom in your photos for some fine smudging. You may want to do it to add a certain effect to a photo, or certain accents, or just because you want to blur out other people from photos of your mug, which you will be sharing on social media.

Firefox web browser

Price: free
Download for iOS

Yup, Firefox has finally made it to iOS. One of the most popular browsers in the world is way, way behind in coming to Apple's mobile operating system. It packs the usual features – private browsing, predictive search, and a numbered tab system that lets you open as many web pages as you wish. Nothing that will make you switch away from your favorite browser, but fans of Firefox will be happy to know that it will sync with their other devices, and transfer all their bookmarks, passwords, and browsing history for an easy transition.

Mozart 2 Pro

Price: $3.99
Download for iOS

Spend 5 minutes a day with this app, learn to read music in no time – that's what Mozart 2 Pro promises. It's a learning tool for aspiring musicians, which will help you get used to how notes are written out and how they translate to your instrument of choice (Banjo, Bass, Cello, Double Bass, Guitar, Mandolin, Piano, Viola, Violin). Neat!
