Baucast, Nimble Notes, Cover Face and other apps to check out this weekend

Apps of the week

In this edition of our Apps of the Week roundup we have a new minimal podcast player, a simple note-taker, and an app for covering up faces in photos. And as always, we’ve selected two great new games for you to check out.


Chances are you’ve already decided on your go-to Podcast app, but for those looking for something new, check out Baucast. It’s a simple, easy-to-use podcast player with handy features like built-in, exportable notes, dark mode support and even alternate app icons.

Nimble Notes

In a similar vein, Nimble Notes is a fast and extremely simple note-taking app. So where other apps may be packed full of powerful features hidden behind a subscription service or IAPs, all Nimble does is let you type, copy and clear. You can use it for any thought, anywhere.

Cover Face

Have you ever posted an image of yourself with friends or maybe family members and thought, oh they probably don’t want their face in such a public place? That’s where Cover Face comes in. It’s just a small, simple app that can automatically detect faces in photos and cover them with emoji.
