Apps of the Week: three great apps from May 10, 2019

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

Walking by GetFit [$10/£10 per week, $35/£35 for 6 months]

This third effort from GetFit Apps is geared around low-impact exercise plans, but it promises similar results to the most strenuous HIIT routine. You can choose from four unique 12-week personalized plans that will fit around your schedule, and there are brief audio instructions to guide you every step of the way. All in all, it looks to be the ideal exercise app for those who don’t really exercise.

Game of the Week

Jumpgrid [$3/£3]

We were big fans of Ian McLarty’s last game, a tough but stylish twist on the match-three puzzler called Dissembler. Jumpgrid is a very different beast indeed, but it’s similarly tricky and rather tough to put down. It’s got the feel of a classic maze runner combined with one of those button-hitting reactions tests, as you teleport your craft across a 3×3 grid, gobbling up dots and avoiding the hulking level furniture.


App Store Classic

AnyList [Free]

We recently reviewed Bring!, an excellent new shopping list app that takes some of the pain out of the weekly shop. But there’s a long and storied history of this kind of app, and AnyList is widely regarded to be one of the all-time greats. Its lists are easily sharable, it remembers your favorite items, suggests common items as you type them in, and generally makes the process of writing a boring grocery list as pain-free and automated as possible.
