In this week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup, we’ve got a great selection of apps and games for you to check out this weekend. The picks include a new healthy recipe book, a Twitter client for tweet storms, and a fun app for adding animated text to your photos.
Looking for a new healthy eating app? Check out Runtasy. The app, from the folks who brought you Runtastic, features 40+ free healthy recipes and kitchen hacks. Want a low-calorie healthy treat to satisfy your sweet tooth? Need a quick post-workout recipe to fuel the gains? Pop open your Runtasty app and head to the market. The ingredients are practical, the recipes are simple and your belly will be happy. Each recipe features a breakdown of all your macronutrients, and the interface makes for easy navigation with large, crisp photos. Runtasty is available for free.
Stormcrow is an app that allows you to write and publish properly-threaded tweet storms. Each new paragraph is posted as a new tweet, with numbers automatically added in so you don’t have to worry about them. By default, it uses the leading number with parenthesis style but you can change this in the Settings. When you’re ready to publish, Stormcrow publishes each tweet back-to-back with just one tap. Other features include easy links, quick editing and more. Stormcrow is available for $2.99.
There are already thousands of photo editing apps in the App Store, which should tell you something about my decision to include Hype Type. This app allows you to add animated typography to your images with a few simple taps. Simply snap your photo or video, enter your text, pick your style and color schemes, position the text, and save or export your masterpiece. Hype Type is available for free (with some IAPs).
Pixel Drifters puts you in the driver’s seat of a fun and addictive nostalgic arcade racer in which you must drift your way around a variety of obstacles and tight corners. Collect coins, earn combos, complete missions, and unlock an entire fleet of vehicles. Features include 30 different vehicles to collect, dozens of missions to complete, and you can record and share your gameplay. Pixel Drifters is available for free (sixth some IAPs).
Onirim is a solitaire card game. You must work against the game to gather the eight oneiric doors before the deck runs out. You can obtain door cards either by playing cards of the same color three turns in a row or by discarding one of your powerful key cards when a door appears from the deck. In both cases, you will have to decide the best use of each card in your hand and carefully play around the Nightmares. Those cards are hidden in the deck and will trigger painful dilemmas when drawn. Onirim is available for $0.99.
