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
Amp is Amazon’s long-awaited response to Clubhouse. It’s an app that effectively lets you create your own radio station. Play music from a library of tens of millions of licensed songs, talk about sports, take call ins, or just offer your own particular hot takes. If you’re not interest in broadcasting yourself, there there’s a host of content creators to tune into. But it’s Amazon’s musical offering that’s the real USP here.
Game of the Week
I’m Borr [$1.99/£1.79]
A charming puzzle game that sees you rotating and redirecting lasers as you seek to guide an elderly gentleman to the level exit. I’m Borr has just got that level of polish – complete with a beautiful pixel-art style and delightfully plinky music – and premium, ad-free class that we’ve come to expect and admire from uber-publisher Crescent Moon Games. Classic mobile game-making.
App Store Classic
Flipboard is one of the original and still best apps for aggregating news sources. You can bet that Apple took a leaf or two from the Flipboard book when it set up Apple News, because it does this stuff so well. The simple aesthetic choice of flipping rather than scrolling through the assembled news stores gives things a tactile buzz. The ability to create custom magazines from any news source is another appealing feature.
