App

Thousands of apps and games are added to the App Store each week, and trawling through them to find the good ones can be difficult. That’s where we come in! We’ve found two new titles in particular that we think are worthy of your attention, as well as a golden oldie that we reckon deserves another mention.

App of the Week

Spotify Kids [Free]

Spotify Kids has been out in parts of the world since October, but it’s only recently made its way over to the US, Canada and France. Now a whole bunch more families can keep their young kids occupied – and not a moment too soon. The app assembles thousands of family-friendly music tracks (so no F-bombs or raunchy lyrics) with a range of age filters and curated playlists from the likes of Disney and Nickelodeon, and it’s all wrapped up in a simplified UI. Spotify Premium Family members get the experience ad-free.

Game of the Week

Hue: A color adventure [$5/£5 full version]

This port of a 2016 indie platform-puzzler has you changing the 2D world around you by altering the background color. Matching that color with objects makes them disappear, allowing you to progress through its charming world. We particularly like the use of an ingenious color wheel system, which you might hope to see in a cool photo editing app. It’s all very stylish. Hue is the kind of game that tickles your eyes as much as your brain matter.
