Apps of the Week: three great titles from Mar 1, 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 three titles in particular that we think are worthy of your attention this week.

Dragalia Lost [Free]

Nintendo’s casual action RPG launched last year in Japan and the US, but it’s only just received a global launch. The game has done remarkably well considering its limited roll-out, and it’s not hard to see why with a cute ‘chibi’ art style, tactile swipe-based combat, seamless multiplayer, anime cut scenes, and Nintendo’s typical level of spit and polish.

Snakebird Primer [$8/£7.99]

Here’s a premium-priced follow-up to the much-loved Snakebird, a colorful puzzler that beguiled us all few years back. This time developer Noumenon Games has promised “a more relaxed island with easier puzzles,” which is probably for the best. The previous game’s gorgeous, childlike graphics hid a seriously sadistic challenge that humbled many a hardened gamer.

Spectre [$2/£2]

Spectre is a smart new photography app from the makers of Halide that uses the power of AI to enhance your long exposure shots. It lets you do things like remove that blurry tourist who wandered into your shot, or easily capture light trails as part of those moody cityscape snaps. Capturing waterfalls and other forms of moving water is also made easy, and it all looks and handles beautifully.
