This week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup features a new app for aspiring screenplay writers, a new AR-based music experience and a simple wallpaper-maker. And as usual, we’ve selected two great new games for you to check out.

Dialogue

Are you an aspiring screenplay writer? Allow me to introduce you to Dialogue. This app is a unique tool that makes screenwriting both easy and enjoyable. Features include a chat interface that lets you see character interactions in a familiar ‘texting’ format, customizable avatars to represent characters, speech-to-text support, and more.

Wavy Music

Wavy transforms your world into music. Using augmented reality, the app overlays 3D graphics on a live video feed to create an experience that moves with the beat. The developers say they have worked with artists to create these beautiful, immersive experiences and say more experiences are on the way. Needless to say, Wavy is best when used with headphones.

Soft Wallpaper

Here is actually a really cool app called Soft Wallpaper. At first glance it might not seem like much—it’s a very minimal app with just a single UI element located at the bottom of the page. But once you tap that button and start swiping across the screen, you’ll see what I mean. The paint appears across several points in the image, allowing you to create a variety of designs and textures. Don’t like a busy wallpaper? Keep swiping to make a solid/gradient background. It’s essentially just a bare-bones paint program that is so simple, it’s fun.
