Apps of the week

In this week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup, we have an ephemeral group chat platform, a digital pet for your wrist and a self-improvement app that works while you sleep. And as always, we’ve selected two great games for you to check out.

Here’s an interesting app that enables you to invite your friends and family to a chat room instantly, just by sending a link. There’s absolutely no signup required—just send out the link or QR code, and you can get a group chat room up and running in seconds. There’s no direct messaging, and the chat room eventually expires and disappears.
