Instead of wading through the massive amount of new app releases searching for a few diamonds in the rough, just let us be your guide. This is a collection of our favorite new apps for both iOS and Android for your downloading pleasure.

High There!

Part social network, part familiar dating app, High There! connects people who like to partake of everyone’s favorite medicinal / recreational herb with other like-minded individuals. If you’re looking for romance with reeder, High There! is a must try. iOS Android

Nike SNKRS

Billed as the Ultimate Sneaker Shop, Nike’s new SNKRS app let’s you shop the newest arrivals, revisit the classics and curate your own feed of your favorite Nike sneakers to get more info on the pairs you like. With upcoming release notifications, order updates and design information from Nike itself, SNKRS is a much better option than waiting in line. iOS Android

Dark Echo

Few games have blown us away in terms of mechanics, gameplay or atmosphere like Dark Echo has. The premise is simple: interact with the world around you through visualized sound. Easy enough… until the “horrifying evil” shows up and ruins everything. If you make it past level 50 of this horror thriller without being legitimately creeped out you’re more man than us. iOS Android

Nat Geo View

If you can’t be bothered to wait for the latest issue, or you don’t like carrying paper, or you don’t have a subscription, Nat Geo View is the easiest, best and most beautiful way to get your National Geographic fix. With curated photos and stories from National Geographic editors, photographers and the community, Nat Geo View will easily become a part of your every day routine. iOS

Meerkat

On the surface, Meerkat just allows you to lifestream video to all of your Twitter followers through the Meerkat app. When you’re in the Meerkat app though, you can also have chat conversations, favorite and retweet livestreams to your followers. Twitter might have thrown a wrench in the works by limiting the app, but Meerkat users grew 30% because of it and CEO Ben Rubin has already announced plans to make the app even better than it was before. iOS Android

oneminute

How many things can possibly happen in just one minute? A lot, if oneminute is any indication. Each day, at a random time, you’ll get a notification to take a picture around you. You have one minute to take that picture. Then, all the minutes get compiled into a giant collage that represents what that one minute looked like all over the world. iOS Android

Alto’s Adventure

Alto’s Adventure is an endless runner format game about snowboarding that just happens to be one of the most beautiful, amusing and well scored (as in the sound) games we’ve ever played. Plus, there’s the nostalgia factor because it reminds us of a much better version of SkiFree. Seriously, this game might be the best $2 you ever sped. iOS

Limbo

Limbo is the story of a young boy looking for his lost sister delivered in a monochromatic, creepy, side-scrolling puzzler adventure that’s simultaneously dark, beautiful, eerie and engaging. It’s won over 100 awards because of the gameplay, atmosphere and innovation, but also because it’s basically art you get to play. The only thing that sucks is that it has to end. Android
