Apps of the week

This edition of our Apps of the Week roundup features a powerful note-taking app with a beautiful interface, a unique job-finder, and an app for making new friends. And as always, we’ve selected two great new games for you to check out.

Allegory

Allegory is a powerful note-taking app with a beautiful interface that promises it has something to offer every level of writer—from casual note-takers to more attuned authors. It’s absolutely packed full of features, including support for markdown, URL schemes, and exporting in HTML, PDF and other file types. It also works with Apple Watch, Quick Actions, Today Widgets, iCloud Sync and much more.

Dolphin

I thought this was an interesting take on the job hunting app: Dolphin helps you find jobs in a field that you are in passionate about like climate change, fighting poverty, improving education, fixing healthcare and more. The app offers curated work opportunities from over 5000+ vetted companies, based on signals like expert recommendations, employee satisfaction, compensation and more.

GroupMeet

GroupMeet is based on the theory that making new friends is best done in groups. It’s kind of like a dating app, where you swipe to pick people you’d like to hang out with, and the app matches you into groups of 5. That group chat will last 3 months, giving you plenty of time to plan a hangout. It sounds kind of strange, but making friends can be awkward and difficult, so I think this would be worth a shot.

Vestigium

Here is a beautiful puzzler that has you helping Qirie and her wisp on their journey to find lotus flowers in an effort to cleanse their homeland from evil. You have to solve puzzles, memorize paths and play the correct cards in order to make progress. Features include 48 challenging, handcrafted levels, 4 unique worlds, a heart-warming story and beautiful illustrations.
