Top Apps for March 2015

Wondering what to download next? Here's a list of apps that came out this month, which you simply have to try.

The Innovative One

ARWatch
The point of this app is to simply try on the Apple watch using augmented reality. All you have to do is print out a little tracker and stick it on your wrist and voila, you can try it on in both the 38 mm and 42 mm size, as well as try  on a variety of colours.
Only problem, it isn’t on the app store and it is only on iPhones, obviously!

The Organised One

Google Calendar
It’s simple to us, interactive, colourful and works a little like a social network. Easily the most useful calendar app, I’m just surprised it’s taken so long for Google to make it into an app.
Available on both iOS and Android.



The Creative Ones

I couldn’t pick between these two, so first up:
Darkroom
Handy photo editing software very similar to the desktop PC version Light Room. You can use preset filters and even make your own, but if it’s filters you’re after maybe wait for the next one…
Filters for iPhone
Yep, you guessed it. Filters, filters as far as the eye can see. There are over 800 to pick from. Perfect for any of you filter lovers.
iOS only.

The Fun Lovers

In the game department I just want to let you know that there are two unmissable games this month.
Alien Star Menace
In this classic arcade style game, your ship is under alien invasion.  If you like strategy games, this is perfect for you.
Crossy Road
http://www.crossyroad.com/
This one’s a little less strategy based, would you believe. In a similar fashion to Flappy Bird, you are tap,tap tappin’ your way through obstacles. What I liked about Crossy Road is A. It’s not as impossible as Flappy Bird, so it’s far more satisfying and B. the endless, unlockable characters that bring whole new dimensions to the game.
Available on both iOS and Android.

The Funny One

CARROT Weather
This is your average accurate weather app but it is depicted using a hilariously sassy voice.  CARROT does a range of similar apps including rude alarm clocks and aggressive to do lists – all are great fun, but they do cost about £2.
iOS only.

The Helpful Ones

Swipes
If you’re looking for a To Do List that won’t shout at you, then Swipes is perfect.  The brand new app is allows you to set tasks for the day which can be organized into a timeline. Swipe one way to mark your task as done and the other way to “snooze” the task, to be completed at another time.
Available on both iOS and Android.

Adobe Fill & Sign
gbh.com.do
Ever been filling out a form on your phone and then you see that dreaded *sign here* section. You try to draw one that doesn’t look shaky on an app, you consider taking a photo of your signature in a desperate attempt to avoid printing the form out, but there’s not no way...
Well that was until Fill & Sign. Simply tap to enter text in any field.
 Available on both iOS and Android.

Scannable
By Evernote
Leading on from Fill & Sign, is Scannable: the quickest, easiest way to scan and share documents. Simply scan using your camera then crop and rotate the document before sharing it via email/message/through the app.
iOS only.

The Sociable One


GoGoBot
Keep track of events going on in your area, use the Stay, Eat or Play categories to narrow your search and have live discussions with others doing the same thing as you (This part obviously depends on the app’s popularity).
Available on both iOS and Android.

The Up and Coming One

Periscope
www.buzzfeed.com
Periscope is a live streaming app that works through Twitter. It allows you to watch and broadcast live videos from all over the globe. The videos will stay online for 24 hours before disappearing, a bit like Snapchat.  Periscope should not be mistaken for Meerkat, a key difference being that Meetkat’s doesn’t belong to Twitter and its videos are live and once the broadcast finishes, that’s it, they’re gone.

Available on both iOS and Android.
