This week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup includes a virtual pocket artist, a photo-sorting app, and an app for helping you save money with friends. And as always, we’ve selected two great new games for you to check out.
This app isn’t new, but if you aren’t familiar with it, it’s definitely worth checking out. Oilist is an app that turns your iPhone into an artist. You give it an image, and it will automatically turn it into a genuine and unique work of art—painted right in front of you in real time. Features include 48 infinitely customizable styles, 17 different presets, 15 brushes and 13 painting mods. Plus, unlike most filter-apps, Oilist never creates the same results twice.
Here is a simple app that helps you declutter your photos collection. Think of all the pics you have on your phone that don’t really belong to an album. Picassort scrapes your camera roll for these photos and allows you to share, favorite and delete them, or even add them to albums. You can search albums by name, pin albums to the top, and even have the app sort your photos for you automatically.
