Welcome back to another edition of our Apps of the Week roundup, where we take a look at cool apps and games we’ve recently discovered. This week we have some great picks, including a unique weather app, an iPhone troubleshooter, and a loyalty card companion. And, as always, we’ve selected a fun game for you to check out.
Here is a unique and stylish forecast app called Weatherian. I guess it’s been around for some time, but I am just now seeing it, so passing it along to you. The app presents temperatures and other data in a waveform graph (I guess that’s what this is? I’m not really a “graph” guy). The idea is to let you view large amounts of forecast data, from weather agencies around the world, at a quick glance. I think it looks cool, and like it would be a great tool for weather nerds.
Is your iPhone currently acting up, but you’re not sure what’s wrong? Clearvue is here to help! The app is an easy diagnostics tool that will troubleshoot your iPhone, testing everything from the screen to the camera, microphone, and more. Heck, you can start an iPhone diagnostics business with this app, and tell people you’ll troubleshoot their phones in 5 minutes for $5. Hey wait, that actually sounds like a really good idea. Okay, if you start a business using my idea, you owe me a 5% cut.
If you’re tired of carrying a bunch of loyalty cards, or fumbling through them at checkout, CardOne is the app for you. You can scan and store all of your barcodes and QR codes from your favorite rewards programs in one spot, and access them instantly when you need them. The app even has location notifications, meaning you’ll get an alert when you go near a store that you have a card for. I know that Apple Wallet supports some loyalty card stuff, but I’m not sure it’s anything close to this.
Mia and the Dragon Princess
Ok, tell me this doesn’t sound super interesting. Mia and the Dragon Princess is a live-action, interactive buddy-action movie following Mia, a plucky barmaid whose life is thrown into chaos when a mysterious woman turns up at her workplace, on the run from a group of violent thugs. The game stars real actors, with real fight stunts, choreographed by real martial artists. There is real-time attribute tracking that evolves based on choices, and there are 10 different story outcomes. Wow.
