Best new Android and iPhone apps of the week (September 29th - October 5th)
This week around, we have some fun apps for quick task organizing, adding fun objects to photos, and keeping up with entertaining images or serious news. Scroll on down to check all of them out. 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 iOS
Tweetbot 4 for Twitter
Probably the most famous Twitter client out there, Tweetbot got a new iteration fresh out the oven – compatible with iOS 9 and split-screen capable for you iPad Air 2 / iPad mini 4 owners out there. This is the first time the tablet version of Tweetbot gets an update in a year, so the visual rehash for iPads is definitely appreciated.
Cosmetics aside, Tweetbot is loved for its in-depth statistics and detailed tweet / user information, which you can't find on the official Twitter app. It's definitely a must for anyone who spends a lot of time on the social network.
Getting a bit snap-happy with your phone and running out of space? IceCream is an app, which will upload your high quality photos to the cloud, and replace them with low quality versions on your phone, freeing up tons of space. You can later download the high quality images on your PC – quite handy.
Like Snapchat's new “lenses”? No, those are not filters, they are real-time animations that get automatically sticked to your face for some funny selfies. Well, Lollicam does much the same – with different types of effects. You can spit fire, have huge anime eyes, ears, paper masks, and a whole lot of other weird things drawn on top of your face. Additionally, you can either snap a still of your new weird visage, or you can record a GIF for better effect. We admit, we had quite some laughs with this one.
Grrr for Imgur
Imgur is a popular Internet website, which houses a huge collection of funny, interesting, or mildly entertaining images. Grrr is an app, which allows you to easily browse Imgur on your phone, with posts arranged in an easily scrollable list view, the ability to add favorites to custom folders, or to revisit recently viewed pictures. Simple, straightforward, effective.
Adobe Photoshop Fix
The mobile Adobe squad gets a new addition in the face of Photoshop Fix. As the name suggests, Fix is about the little things – healing some image imperfections, touching up areas that are too light or too dark, color adjustments, et cetera. Of course, to use it, you will need to be a Creative Cloud subscriber.
BizyMe is a super-fast to do list, designed to let you make, rearrange, and remove tasks as fast as possible. After all, the hassle with organizing them is probably one of the main reason why many of us don't use to do lists in the first place.
With BizyMe, you can take a note by just holding a finger on the screen and talking into the phone – the note will be added via voice recognition. Swiping tasks away removes them, and the editing screen, reached by the edit button in the top-left, allows you to easily rearrange them. We told you – fast and simple.
New for Android
BuzzFeed is a large site, which mixes serious news, with funny anecdotes, with nonsensical pictures, et cetera – you get it. The News app is a branch off the main BuzzFeed app and is designed to get you only the serious or important stuff, with no distractions inbetween. It's a got that Material Design flair and puts little in the way between you and the content.
Feel like going a bit eco with your wardrobe refresh? FabSwapp allows you to list the old clothes you plan on getting rid of, and exchange them with the clothes of another user. It's a cool alternative to check out before heading for the 2nd hand store.
Yep, to-do lists are getting quite popular these days. Could it be because Summer is over? Enough going out on tangents – CloudTasks is a pretty cool to-do app for Android, which allows you to arrange all your assignments by due time and priority. They are also color-coded for easier navigation, and you get a neat widget to remind you about what needs to be done.
