In this week’s edition of our Apps of the Week post, we’ve hand-picked 5 titles for you to check out this weekend. The selections include a video streaming app with a unique twist, a different kind of Twitter client, a full-featured annotation app, and two new games that you won’t want to miss!
The live video streaming app space is already crowded, with entries from major player like Facebook and Twitter. But Look offers something the others don’t: the ability to request a stream. Want to see what’s going on in Time Square? At the beach? The local bar? As long as someone at your desired location has the Look app installed, you can send them a notification asking for a live video stream. This is one of those things that sounds really cool on paper, but a lot of people have to start using it for it to be so. This app is available for free.
Twitter is know for its 140-character excerpts, but the social network can also be a great place for discovering great photos. That’s where Finch comes in. The app turns your timeline into beautiful streams of photos, with features like Following, Lists, and keyword/hashtag search. Use the Explore feature to discover new and interesting photos, and instantly save, retweet or like them. This app is available for $2.99.
Looking for a new annotation tool? Check out Annotable. It’s a full-featured, all-in-one annotation app with several customization options including rectangles, ovals, arrows, lines and text; 8 colors; 3 outlines and 3 blur styles. You can also highlight items and focus on a certain spot in an image with the Loupe tool. Many of the tools are included with the app, some must be unlocked with in-app purchases. Annotable is available for free.
Reimagined for mobile — Never Alone: Ki Edition includes every level and all the excitement of the original atmospheric puzzle platformer enjoyed by millions of PC and console players around the world. Experience the epic journey of Nuna and Fox as they search for the source of an eternal blizzard that threatens the survival of everything they have ever known. The mobile version features new touch controls and gorgeous graphics. This game is available for $4.99.
The sequel to the hit 2014 title Sky Force, “Reloaded” gives players more of the same great stunning shoot ’em up action with classic arcade elements.
