Apps of the Week: three great apps from December 20, 2019

  • 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

Print: Wireless Printing [$2/£2]

Printing directly from your iPhone to a printer is an extremely easy process these days, but it’s still frustratingly tricky to control the size of the resulting physical photos. Print: Wireless Printing adds a simple layer of customization options to help you do this. Using the app, you can crop and print photos to a specific physical size (inches, centimeters, etc.), which makes it ideal for those wishing to put together a last-minute photo album or a greeting card for Christmas.

Game of the Week

My Winter Album [$1/£1]

‘Tis the season for carefully manipulating intricately disguised boxes – or opening presents, in other words. Which is more or less what you’re tasked with doing in My Winter Album. The idea is to piece together little boxy vignettes, manipulating each distorted domestic scene until their cuboid components click into place – kind of like a three-dimensional tile puzzle. Add in a distinctly Christmassy theme, all rendered in lo-fi voxel style, and you’re looking at what could be a perfectly charming Holiday time waster.

App Store Classic

Letterboxd [Free]

Love movies? Then you should really have the Letterboxd app installed on your iPhone. It’s essentially a loose social network centered around film, not to mention a great way to track everything you’ve watched. As you tick the movies off you’ll have the opportunity to rate them, as well as to comment on and discuss them with likeminded film fanatics. It’s also a great place to connect with your friends and see what they’ve been watching. If only Facebook was this fun.
