We’ve put together the best iPhone and iPad apps you may’ve missed during your busy work week.This week, we have an excellent selection of new apps, like an app that could replace your iPad’s music app, an app to get your MineSweeper fix, and the app that’s the spiritual predecessor to the ultra successful Halo video games.
We even have an app that lets you start recording video on your iPhone within a second of unlocking your phone so you never miss a moment.
Plus much more.
The Hit List is outrageously expensive for a to do list app, but it might just be the best one there is. Oh, and there's a $1.99/month or $19.99/year subscription you'll need to buy if you want to sync through the cloud.
The Hit List looks great, has useful tagging features, and excellent syncing with the also outrageously expensive desktop Hit List app.
...a mix of crowd favourite Instagram and universally loathed colour (which had great location-aware features). It takes the best qualities of both apps and synthetsizes them to create something new and cool.
Log in using your Instagram credentials, then browse other users' geo-tagged Instagram pictures on a map. This is definitely more fun than tapping a hashtag someone includes in their photo caption.
Now that Apple is letting developers scan a user's onboard music library, some pretty snazzy new music player apps are coming out.
Groove not only looks polished, but Groove creates custom mixes based on the music you listen to. The app downloads missing album covers, artist photos, and even streams songs you might like from Last.fm.
Don't wait for your iPhone's horribly sloth-like Camera app to load, then wait again while it switches to video mode.
Instead, download Capture and have instant, one-tap video recording so you never miss a key moment. Once you install Capture, tap the app and it starts recording video immediately. Once you're done, the video goes straight to your camera roll.
360 Browser is a feature-packed new web browser for iPhone and iPad that bundles in a download manager, Firefox bookmarks sync over the cloud, a very innovative interface, flash video playing (via on the fly transcoding in the cloud), customisable multi-touch gestures, Dropbox support, and a whole lot more.
100 stunning pictures of the world's most powerful political figures shot by photographer Platon, complete with little blurbs next to each portrait.
There's a world map to browse where each leader is from, but the real killer here is the selection of gorgeous pictures, each one conveying real power.
Marathon isn't the best retro first-person shooter for your iPad, but it's an excellent port of one of the games Bungie Studios built before they built the Halo series, one of the best-selling game series' of all time.
Marathon was a cult hit back in the day, a nostalgic look back into Mac gaming in 1994.
This new MineSweeper Touch for iPhone and iPad is a new visual take on the old classic.
One nice feature is GameCenter support (to compare how quickly you can clear levels), and another nice feature is that you can zoom in to make sure you don't press the wrong square.
