Best new Android, iOS and Windows Phone apps for May 2014

Feeling lost in the woods of millions of applications out there? We’re here to help, as we cherry-pick only the best new apps that have arrived for each of the three biggest platforms this month. In this round-up, we have selected the finest new titles out of Android’s Google Play Store, the Apple App Store, and the Windows Phone Marketplace.

We kick off our selection with an app that aims as high as to replace Skype - Ringo is a new VoIP client that allows you to make very cheap international calls. Unlike Skype, and most other VoIP apps, though, it routes calls via a local number and does not charge you a dime for data. Along with it, we’ve had some excellent new arrivals like the Yahoo News Digest, a twice-a-day selection of the most important stories throughout the globe, delivered in a timely manner and in a beautiful interface.

We have much more in the slideshow below - starting with Android and iOS apps first, and finishing with a selection of the best apps for the third largest ecosystem - Windows Phone. Which ones are your favorites? Take a look below and join in with your thoughts in the comments section below.
