Apps of the week

In this week’s edition of our Apps of the Week roundup we have a music app curated by real artists, a new minimal RSS reader, and a full-screen browser with support for streaming gaming services. And as always, we’ve selected some new games for you to check out.

Station Rotation

This is an interesting idea: Station Rotation is a curated music station with tracks selected and updated by a roster of artists. It’s a nice alternative to algorithm-driven music, and everyone hears the same songs at the same time like real radio. Downside: it only supports Spotify right now.

Den for RSS

Here’s something you don’t see much anymore: a new RSS feed reader. Features include a very content-focused, minimal interface, support for RSS, Atom and JSON-Feed formats, dark mode, Mac and iOS apps, and I especially like that it doesn’t require an additional account or subscription.

Stadium Full Screen Browser

Stadium is not itself a game, but you can use it to play them. Since it’s a full-screen browser with user agent support, you can use it to play games on web-based streaming services like Google’s Stadia and Amazon Luna. It even supports controllers. Fingers crossed Apple doesn’t pull this one.

HoloVista

In this mixed-reality mystery game, you play as Carmen, a junior architect and new hire at an elusive firm. In this near-future social media world, you’re charged with photographing the inside of an opulent building: —but beware: the house is getting to know you too, perhaps better than you know yourself.
