Modern Time, Locket, PanoStory and other apps to check out this weekend

Welcome back to another edition of our Apps of the Week roundup. This week we have a simple, universal clock app, a friendly widget and a fun photo app. And as always, we’ve selected a great new game for you to check out.

Modern Time

I’m a sucker for well-designed, minimal apps that provide a singular function, and that’s exactly the category that Modern Time falls into. It’s a simple clock app, with some handy customization options, that works across iOS, macOS and tvOS.

Locket Widget

Now here is a cool idea: Locket is a widget that shows you live pictures of your friends and family, right on your Home Screen. So when a friend sends you a pic, it appears in the Locket widget. And then you can tap the widget, take your own pic, and send it to their Home Screen.

As one might expect, stitching panoramic photos into your Instagram or Snapchat story looks pretty cool. PanoStory is an app that will hep you achieve this effect by turning your pano pics into vertical videos with relative ease. It also offers some handy editing features, and you can export to IG or your Camera Roll.
