2do

This high-end (read: it costs $15) “get things done” app for iOS launched in Version 3.0 this week, with more than 200 features overhauled, including a new “quick add” feature, the ability to view your calendar within the app (on iPad only), a native inbox for GTD practitioners, and newly “fluid” task editing capabilities.

Evernote

The ultimate note-taking app keeps getting a little more ultimate. The latest update offers cool new features for its premium (paid account) edition—Touch ID unlocks the passcode-protected parts of the app; a new “related notes” section helps you rediscover old ideas while entering new ones; and business notebooks are now kept up to date with the aid of push notifications.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team

The EA Sports version of FIFA soccer has been one of the best soccer games for iOS for years—just about every league and every country you can think of is represented on the game, and there are plenty of opportunities to play against your friends and other rivals. This year’s edition offers more of the same—unfortunately, EA Sports’ favored “freemium” model slows you down if you don’t want to keep feeding metaphorical quarters into the machine.

Getty Images Stream

Hard to describe this photo-featuring app for iOS better than Getty does itself: “See the world through the lens of Getty Images’ world-class photographers—from today’s news told through crisp, compelling photos to historic moments in time captured forever in our image archives.” It’s cool, beautiful, and informative all at once.

Google Play Newsstand

Hard to say what this revamped offering from Google is supposed to be: A Flipboard competitor? A replacement for Apple’s native Newsstand app? A replacement for Pocket and other read-it later apps? The correct answer is: Yes.

Leaf on the Wind

This “physics-based puzzle/adventure game” is reminiscent of Badland, but with more of a vertical element (since you’re a leaf on the wind) and many fewer creepy-cute creatures. There are 30 levels of gameplay, and the app has already been optimized for play on the iPhone 6 family of phones.
