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
Infuse 7 [Free]
A new version of one of our favorite apps is here! There are multiple ways to use Infuse to stream and transfer videos from your Mac or PC to your iPhone, whatever the file type. It can hook into your Documents folder, connect to a Plex account, sync up with any iTunes videos you might have, or pull in any video content stored on your Dropbox account. In short, if you have video files on your computer, Infuse is the easiest way to watch them back on a mobile device. Infuse 7 gives the iOS and Apple TV apps a refresh while adding an all-new Mac version that makes things easier than ever. The old ‘Infuse Pro’ app is gone, replaced by a subscription model or a lifetime buyout IAP – but anyone who paid for previous Pro versions gets free access for a year. If you’re curious, read through our guide to how it all works.
Game of the Week
Knights of San Francisco [$3/£3]
Explore a fantasy world set in the futuristic ruins of San Francisco, where goblins and ogres roam free. This is a text-based game that plays like something between a 1980s Choose Your Own Adventure book and a session of Dungeons & Dragons. With a unique combat system and a story that generates itself differently every playthrough, this is one of the most interesting takes on the narrative RPG genre we’ve seen. The playtime is short, but it’s all from the mind of a single game dev – and we think it deserves a shot.
App Store Classic
Apollo for Reddit
Reddit allows users to subscribe to ‘subreddits’ of constantly changing content covering their favorite topics. Everything is covered here, no matter how niche your interests. Anyone can submit posts, with a smart upvote system ensuring the best submissions rise to the top for easy discovery. But the Reddit website isn’t well optimized for mobile, and the official app leaves a lot to be desired. In contrast, Apollo offers an impressive collection of powerful features that make discovery, navigation, posting, and commenting as easy as pie – and its implementation of Home Screen widgets is exemplary.
