Top Apps for April 2015


So it’s that time of the month again where we get down with the cool kids and take a good look at what apps are at the top of the charts this month.  As usual we’ve grouped them into handy categories so you can see exactly what app will suit you!

The Clever One

Infinit
Infinit is a superbly smart file transfer app. Whilst it has been running for a while now, the real reason Infinit is in our top charts this week is because it has finally released an update for Android!  No more must the lowly Android user suffer when it comes to sharing video files that are just too big for emails. Infinit is here and it is your saviour.
Infinit has no file size limit and works every time. It’s free on both iOS and Android, so why not give it a go?

The Social Ones

Nuzzel
Nuzzel is the easiest way to see what news your pals are sharing. It combines news feeds from your friends’ Twitter and Facebook profiles then compiles it all into one easy platform. Nuzzel also has a really cute hedgehog for a logo, so I’m sold.
Free and available on iOS and Android.

Riff
Riff is a standalone social app from Facebook. I think it sounds a bit like Snapchat, but on steroids.  The idea is to make videos with your pals. You can start the whole shebang by uploading a video of yourself. This video can be seen by anyone, but only your friends can add another video onto it – to make a longer video… a clip chain? A Mexican wave movie?
Once they’ve added to it, then their friends can add to that, and then their friends and then so on and so forth.
I think I’m making this sound more complicated than it is, so just promise me you’ll try it and who knows your next Riff might just be a viral video hit!
Free and available on iOS and Android.


The Musical One

Beatport
Beatport has been an online music store in the electronic/dance music scene since 2004 but they’ve also got an app and it has that Spotify streaming feel to it. So if dance music is your thing, then Beatport is perfect for you.
Free and available on iOS and Android.

The Gamer Ones

Angry Birds Stella Pop
A brand new Angry Birds game has been flung into our app stores. Oh, here we go, another smash-pigs-with-birds game, I hear you say? But, you’d be wrong to say that. Angry Birds have been taken to new heights in their new coloured bubble matching/popping/shooting game. 
Free and available on iOS and Android.

Fast & Furious: Legacy
Of course, with the new film out in cinemas, it makes complete sense that the franchise should release a game too. It’s your fairly average racing game. There are cars to customise, in-app purchases a plenty and more than enough to entertain you until you actually get to see the film.
Free and available on iOS and Android.

None*
None* is one of those games that has taken off just because nobody can do it. It’s like a more sophisticated version of Flappy Bird.
It is a mysterious and confusing game which doesn’t set out the goals or even give you instructions. You’re just expected to spend hours, probably a good few hundred of them, guessing your way through. Only 10% of the users have completed the game. There are 50 nearly impossible levels to complete and even if you do manage to do it somehow… Episode 2 will be released this summer, so you better get cracking!
Free & iOS only.

The Big Spender

The Edit
The Edit launched earlier this year at London Fashion Week and has slowly picked up pace. It is now quickly becoming one of the latest and most popular shopping apps. Using The Edit makes it easy to browse clothes, shoes and jewellery, whilst also swiping the products you like to save them. Sounds a bit like Tinder but for clothes,  what’s not to like?
Free and available on iOS and Android.

The Savvy One

Pennies
Pennies is a personal finance manager that helps you budget whilst keeping everything simple.  This is one of the first apps I’ve come across that is advertising itself for use on the Apple Watch as well as iPhone. Sorry Android, nothing for you yet.
The app can formulate a daily budget and then track your spending to warn you when it’s time to slow down.  It’s friendly, colourful and simple. Not only is it a brand new idea but it also makes saving rewarding and I can see it being hugely popular.

The only problem:  It costs money… A smidge ironic, we know. But think of all that saving you could do if you just splash out £2.29 on an app…. maybe don’t download The Edit as well, though.

£2.29 - iOS only.
