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
Reeder 5 [$5/£5 full unlock]
We’ve covered Reeder extensively over the years, as it’s always been one of the most elegant and refined RSS reader/read later apps on the market. Version 5 has just landed, bringing with it iCloud support to better sync your feeds and devices. You also get improved tagging options, improved widget support, and an all-round improved design that bolsters readability and enables speedier navigation. If you prefer to assemble your own news sources rather than relying on social media (smart move), Reeder 5 could be for you.
Game of the Week
The Longest Drift [$2/£2]
Have you ever played a ‘racing-puzzle-adventure game’ before on your iPhone – or any other platform for that matter? No, us neither. But that’s precisely what’s promised with The Longest Drift, a new game from developer Tepes Ovidiu. Ostensibly a top-down driving game with cute polygonal graphics, The Longest Drift places at its heart the mysterious disappearance of two family members. Featuring slidy car handling, jigsaw puzzles, narrative intrigue and more, The Longest Drift is an interesting proposition alright.
App Store Classic
We all know about eBay. If you have an item laying around the house, you no longer sell it, you ‘eBay it’. But have you actually logged into the online marketplace through a regular web browser recently? It’s an absolute labyrinthine mess. This is where the eBay app comes in, because it manages to impose some form of order and filtration on a sprawling and unwieldy service. It also enables you to receive notifications for auctions, so you need never miss out on a bid again.
