Apps of the Week: three great apps from January 10, 2020

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

Less – Alcohol Tracker [Free]

It’s the start of a new year, and many of us will have made resolutions to be better, healthier people. One of the most common promises following the excesses of the Holiday period is to drink less alcohol, and that’s precisely what Less helps you to do. The app, which is from the creators of the Zero fasting app, makes it easy to track how much you’re drinking, and helps you to set goals to moderate your alcohol consumption.


Game of the Week

The White Door [$3/£3]

The White Door is the latest effort from developer Rusty Lake, which should tell you a lot. The maker of the Cube Escape and Rusty Lake series specializes in point-and-click puzzlers with unique and deeply unsettling settings. The White Door follows a similar path, this time casting you as an amnesiac who awakes in a sparsely-drawn Mental Health facility. Follow the facility’s daily routine whilst exploring the protagonist’s dreams in a bid to get to the bottom of things.

App Store Classic

Cryptomator [$9/£9]

In a week where Apple broke convention and sent one of its directors to CES to talk about privacy, it seems apt to call attention to this well-established app. Cryptomator essentially adds end-to-end encryption to your chosen cloud storage service. It does so by automatically encrypting any files prior to uploading them. The result: even if someone gains access to your iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive account, they won’t be able to open the files stored within.
