This week’s roundup of apps includes a “puke-powered” game that pits you against angry cyborg chickens. Read on!
Eggggg - The Platform Puker ($2) is a “ ridiculous two-touch platform game about vomit.” You play Gilbert—whose egg allergy is also his greatest superpower—fighting through a world of angry cyborg chickens to get to a birthday party. Gastric distress has never been such fun.
Annotable (freemium) is an “all-in-one image annotation tool” for iOS. It lets you add rectangles, ovals, arrows, lines, and texts to stories and pictures you view on your Notes, Twitter, and Safari on your device, letting you offer additional facts or commentary that can be shared with friends and colleagues.
Blinq ($1; iPhone and Apple Watch) is billed as “easiest, quickest and most intuitive way to keep track of your finances.” The app makes it easy for you to enter expenses, helps you learn about your spending patterns, and alerts you if you’re about to go above your budget.
Cosmolander ($3) combines learning and fun, helping kids learn about the solar system by sending them on missions as “astronauts” to learn about the other worlds orbiting our sun. It’s designed for players age 6 and above.
CreativeLive (freemium) is like having an adult education co-op in your phone. It features more than 1,500 classes to help users improve their skills at photo, video, crafts, money management, and more. You get one free lesson per day, otherwise individual classes vary by price.
Findo (freemium; iPhone and iMessage) searches for your emails, files, images, and notes in Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, Outlook, OneDrive, Yahoo Mail, and more. You can find those files without leaving Slack, Facebook Messenger, Telegram or Skype—and when the right item is found, you can immediately share it within your messenger platform of choice.
Graava (free; iPhone and Apple Watch) already did a great job of helping you edit your clips into a watchable video; this week’s update includes Apple Watch integration—you can control the camera remotely—the ability to create live photos, improved control over the volume of music in your video, and more.
