We are still recovering from the long WWDC week, but that didn’t stop us from putting out our Apps of the Week roundup. This week we have some great picks for you including a noodle-based focus timer, a rabbit-friendly task tracker, and a super smart movie maker. And as always, we’ve selected a fun new game for you to check out.
Focus Noodles is a fun productivity timer that aims to help you focus on your work or activity. Just turn your phone over to start the timer. When time is up, your noodles will be ready and you’ll get a funny tale to prepare you for your next task. This app was a finalist for Apple’s ’22 Design Awards, and it connects to your Health app to record ‘mindfullness.’
Habit Rabbit: Task Tracker
Continuing the trend of gamify-ing productivity, we have Habit Rabbit. It’s a task tracker with a twist–accomplish your daily or weekly goals to clean up your rabbit’s home. Earn coins and carrots to customize your rabbit and its dwelling. Probably not for the power user, but persistent procrastinators should check it out.
TEASER: Auto Movie Reel Maker
It’s getting harder to find rich, quality games that aren’t exclusive to Apple Arcade, but I think we have one here. For those not familiar with the popular Steam title, Gunfire Reborn is an adventure game with elements of FPS, Roguelite and RPG genres. Players can control heroes with various abilities and experience diverse build gameplay.
