This week;’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup features a different kind of weather app, a minimal workout logger for the gym, and a filter for your text messages. And as always, we’ve picked two great new games for you to check out.
I know, I know, there are already SO many weather apps out there. But this one has an interesting twist. Instead of focusing on giving you your local focus, WurstWetter tells you what weather is like across the country—particularly the worst weather. Is it pouring rain in the northwest? Snowing in the northeast? Storming in the midwest? WurstWetter has the answer. This is a great app for weather buffs, or those with friends and family scattered across the US. WurstWetter is available for free.

Are you getting too many unwanted SMS or MMS everyday and you can’t find the important ones in your ‘Messages’? getFilter uses Apple’s all new CoreML to filter the unwanted messages out and shows you the ones you actually want.

This is a pretty specific app, that fulfills a pretty specific need, but if you need some help filtering through your messages, this seems like a solid option. getFilter is available for free.
