It’s the weekend again, and you know what that means! Time for another episode of our Apps of the Week roundup. This week’s selections include an app for helping you overcome social anxieties, a simple weight-tracker and a Tinder-like app for deleting old Tweets. And as usual, we have two awesome new games for you to check out.
The Steps app was designed to help you overcome social anxieties—using the theory that the best way to do so is to expose yourself to things you’re afraid of. How does it work? Choose from a handful of categories like “try something new” or “stop worrying what others might think,” and select a challenge. Save the challenge, and complete it at your leisure. You can then share your experience with others. Honestly, even if you don’t think you suffer from social anxiety, this seems like an interesting experiment. Try the “buy a stranger a drink” challenge and see what happens. Steps is available for free.
If you’re looking for a simple way to keep track of your weight without all of the confusing smart devices and complex health apps, Simple Scale is worth checking out. As its name suggests, it’s an easy-to-use app for tracking your weight progress. Your data is automatically graphed for quick visualization, and the data can be synced and backed up. The app doesn’t have a ton of features, but it makes up for it with its beautiful UI design. And what a coincidence, it’s just in time for pre-summer diets/workouts! Simple Scale is available for $0.99.
Keep or Delete
Keep or Delete is the easiest way to get rid of old tweets. Just sign in with your Twitter account and start swiping. Swiping left indicates that you want to delete the specified Tweet, and swiping right means you want to keep it. It’s essentially like Tinder for deleting old Tweets. Other features include a deletion delay, a revert button to undo a delete, and support for multiple accounts. It also supports the importing of your Twitter archive to help bypass Twitter’s limit of reviewable tweets. Keep or Delete is available for $0.99.
Ever wondered what it’s like to race drones? Now you can experience it for yourself—virtually. Drone Racer: Canyons features 35+ addictive levels, endless mode to set high score, 1v1 real-time multiplayer, and you can choose from and customize 17 racing drones. There are leaderboards, achievements, and performance-based bonuses. Even if you don’t consider yourself drone-savvy, this game is worth checking out. Drone Racer: Canyons is available for free.
Wobblers is an exciting and addicting arcade game, in which you are equipped with a rocket to navigate your character to the highest heights. On the way up, you’ll have to collect power ups, avoid obstacles, and keep your Wobbler aboard. Features include 300 missions to complete, 50 Wobblers to play with, and a bonus Rainbow Rush more. Gameplay is simple and super addicting. Wobblers is available for free (with some IAPs).
