The Roll

We can’t speak for the rest of you, but the Camera Roll on our iPhones is completely bogged down with hundreds, if not thousands, of shots that didn’t make the cut. The Roll aims to make the entire process of selecting the best shot easier by organizing your Camera Roll by tagging and grouping similar shots while also presenting the best shot based on their clever algorithms and making your entire life in pictures searchable by keywords.

At this point, it’s almost impossible to not have experience with at least one podcast. Whether you’re listening to Found My Fitness or 99% Invisible, there’s a wealth of information available to your ears if you know where to look and you have the right app to listen. Lunar gives you subscription options with notifications and automatic downloads, along with discovery options for something new and playback options that will make your life easier to create an almost perfect app for podcasts.

DarkSky

DarkSky has long been our favorite iOS weather app because of the way it almost obsessively presents absurdly accurate, hyperlocal weather information ranging from daily and weekly forecasts to precipitation information. Now, it’s finally available for Android. With a premium subscription you’ll get access to rain notifications, daily summaries, widgets, alerts, forecasts and all kinds of other weather-related information that will make your life a whole helluva lot easier.

INKS.

INKS., the latest release from BAFTA-winning studio State of Play Games (they made the fantastic Lumino City we told you about before), is a game that perfectly combines the experience of pinball with the wonder of painting. With over 100 unique tables to play, the beautifully elegant iOS game uses a traditional pinball experience combined with exploding bursts of watercolor fireworks to create vivid layers that explode from your digital playing surface into the real world.

Google Spaces

We’re not going to pretend like there aren’t a million different ways for you to communicate with your friends and family—including a few different options that are also from Google—but Spaces sets itself apart from other options by integrating all your favorite Google features into its small group sharing. You can access Search, YouTube, Photos, Chrome and more without having to leave the app to search for your favorite things to share with specific groups of people.
