Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.


We’ve just released a new issue of our sister app, Swipe – the iPhone Magazine.

Is it that time of year again already? Halloween is fast approaching, and to get in the mood we’ve been digging into our favorite apps for the season. Whether you want help designing a costume, preparing a feast, tricking your friends, or even just scaring yourself with a horror game, we’ve got the perfect app.

If frights aren’t your cup of tea, we’ve reviewed some cracking apps this issue including the long-awaited iOS release of the beautiful open world puzzler The Witness!

Over in the main features section, we’re reflecting on a recent trip to Apple HQ to investigate the new and exciting world of augmented reality apps. ARKit, launched with iOS 11, has made things that would have seemed impossible just a few years ago look completely normal.

Finally, alongside our usual how-tos we’ve got some top tips on digital painting from a pro illustrator, who also helped us review Procreate.

Oh, and make sure you check out the news section – there have been a few security flaws and scams in the last two weeks you should be aware of.
