We have compiled 10 of our favorite iOS apps to hit the App Store during the month of February 2018. Without further ado, let’s get started.
The first app on our list maybe good to have, especially now that net neutrality rules are in the process of being repealed. Wehe is a research app that tells you if your carrier is violating net neutrality and how much they are slowing down or speeding up specific apps. By running the test via this app, you will be able to help create a public database of carrier behavior worldwide. This app doesn’t always work right but when it does, it can display some very important information and help a good cause.
Calzy 3 Calculator is one of the newest and smartest calculator apps on the App Store. The app has been completely redesigned from the ground up, offering a new memory area that will let you store multiple numerical calculating sessions with a simple drag and drop interaction. The app supports 3D Touch. You can view your history and bookmarks. There’s also support for multi-tasking when using it with an iPad and even a Today widget is available. It does cost $2 but if you’re in need of a powerful calculator app, maybe you’re coming from the previous version, I highly recommend Calzy 3.
Glitch Dash is an incredibly cool and addicting game. You might have seen the promos for this game scrolling through Instagram. You have to run and dodge your way past hammers, axes, geometric obstacles, and lazers as they approach you in 3D space. The animations are incredibly fluid though the more powerful your iOS device is, the better the gameplay will be. Overall, I love this game.
Thunderly is certainly a niche app. But even for someone who’s not a meteorologist, I found this app really neat. The app displays a photo-realistic globe where you can see real-time lightning strikes all around the world. Besides accurate day and night cycles, the globe contains real-time clouds, precipitation, and a lightning history layer for the last hour. For an app with such a niche following, it’s incredibly well-designed.
Doctors Report Illness Tracker is probably not recommended for those of you with hypochondria. What it does is provide the severity from doctors’ diagnosis of fifteen illnesses in your immediate area by zip code or county. It will tell you what illness, such as the flu or bronchitis, is prevalent in your area and provide tips to prevent getting such an illness. I think this is a good app to have, especially since this flu season has been particularly bad.
Make 10 is a numbers game. While it appears simple at first glance, it can get pretty challenging. You get points by dragging dice onto the board and getting a total of 10 in a row or column. The levels are endless so you can play this game pretty much forever. There’s some smooth sound effects and it’s compatible with the iPhone X. If you like Sudoku or other puzzle games, you should really enjoy Make 10.
Sony has recently brought its Sketch app over to the App Store. If you’re an artist, you should check this app out as it features brushes, layers, a zoom feature to draw detailed sketches, a community of millions of users and support for the Apple Pencil. Best of all, it’s completely free. I think it offers a ton of features for the prize.
Moleskine Actions is one of the most powerful productivity apps to hit the App Store. It’s free to try out but it does cost $2/month so do keep that in mind. You can use these things called Action Cards to remind you of things you don’t want to forget and you can use natural language for such actions by telling the app, for example, “Water the plants every Saturday.” It will then remind you to water the plants every single Saturday. What’s also cool is you can use Siri to manage your actions as well. There are so many neat features in this app that I’d probably have to spend an entire video detailing all of them.
Once again, the only downside and the reason it has a low number of stars is because of the subscription model.
Mubert is an app that plays AI generated music to help you focus on work and study. Their algorithm generates a seamless stream of unique music in real time. All you have to do is just select what you plan on doing-- study, work or create.
The last app we have for you today is called Jump Jam and it’s a fun and engaging game. All you have to do is hold down your finger on the display to move your character forward while he automatically jumps from platform to platform. The goal is to reach the end without hitting any obstacles. There are over 80 levels and tons of characters to unlock. You also are challenged to achieve all three stars in each level. Kind of similar to Angry Birds. If you like what you see, you should check out Jump Jam.
With that last one, those were ten of our favorite iOS apps to hit the App Store during the month of February 2018.
