More from the App Store – great apps you might have missed [25 November 2022]

  • by

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

Vimcal [Free]

Vimcal is described as “The world’s fastest calendar”, reflecting the fact that it’s been designed specifically with remote workers and teams in mind. To that end, there’s a focus on scheduling meetings and productivity quickly and efficiently. The developer claims that “Anything you can do in another calendar, you can do in Vimcal in half the steps or fewer” through such features as a natural language engine and extensive keyboard shortcuts. It also deals with the eternal problem of timezones in an elegant fashion.


Game of the Week

Station 117 [$1.99/£1.79]

Unsurprisingly, this new game from the developer of Incoherence and Forever Lost is an atmospheric first person puzzler with shades of classic point and click adventures. There’s an underwater theme to Station 117, as you explored a classified research facility on the bottom of the Pacific ocean. Expect elaborate puzzles, a neat note-taking system, super-detailed graphics, and an immersive soundtrack.

App Store Classic

MindLine Mind Map [Free, $9.99/£8.99 per year Pro tier]

MindLine has been making digital mind mapping on your phone seem simple since 2015. The focus with this app is its ease of use, as the process of quickly making notes, organizing ideas, and arranging tasks on your iPhone is friction free. That’s tricky to pull off with a compact touchscreen. MindLine also benefits from being blissfully free of distractions, with simple cloud and export options once you’re done visualising. It’s also extremely cheap to sign up for MindLine’s Pro tier, which is a huge bonus.
