Apps of the Week: three great apps from November 8, 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

Ejimoo [Free]

We’re all a little wary of the dangers of social media these days, and Ejimoo is a new social network that attempts to overcome some of these concerns. It takes a deliberately minimalistic approach to sharing, encouraging you to “Live in the moment, post about it later”. When you do post pictures and 30-second video snippets to the app, you can rest easy that you won’t be opening yourself up to comments from random trolls. It also serves as a clean hub for linking all your online platforms in one place.


Game of the Week

Boolitaire [$2/£2]

We’re well aware that Halloween has passed at the time of reading, so the spooky theme of Boolitaire might not quite hit home as it might have a couple weeks ago. But it’s never too late for a smart-looking twist on Solitaire. Martin Knopf’s game adds RPG battling mechanics to the classic game of deck sorting, together with a cute and crisp horror theme. Which is totally non-horrific, naturally. There are no ads or in-app purchases here, just lots of good clean suit-filtering fun.


App Store Classic

VOX [Free]

With the arrival of Apple’s new AirPods Pro headphones, we’ve started thinking about all those apps that might make full use of their enhanced output. Vox has long been held to be one of the finest Hi-Res audio apps on the App Store, with support for multiple lossless file types like FLAC, WAV and ALAC. It’ll also handle your regular lossy formats like MP3 and WMA, and will even let you pull in playlists from SoundCloud and Spotify. All this and it’s also remarkably slick and intuitive to use.
