Every few weeks, the Apple Reddit forum hosts an “APPreciation thread”where people name their favourite iPhone and iPad apps.
There’s 170,000 people on the Apple Reddit forum, and hundreds of them jump in and vote on apps.
We’ve sifted through the last two APPreciation threads where people talked about their favourite new iOS 7 apps.
There’s bound to be a new app or game in here to delight you, too.
Price: Free, but you can upgrade to a paid version for $US1.99
'A really cool word/strategy game. I recommend spending the 2 bucks to upgrade since some games can go on for a few days,' said the Redditor that submitted it.
App: Dark Sky
While at a Little League baseball game, 'the alarm went off. It said we had 17 minutes to find shelter. A lot of parents laughed at the specificity of the prediction and one dad set a stopwatch. In approximately 16:45, the rain started,' said one Redditor that recommended it.
'They take news stories, remove all the fluff, and list just the important parts. If you want to read more about a story they include the links,' said the Redditor that submitted it.
'This app revolutionised the way I use my iPhone ... I use it to add reminders, to create text files on my Dropbox, to send messages, to append to notes and lists, to send emails, to post to Facebook and Twitter, and to compose text for other apps,' says the Redditor that submitted it.
App: Appshopper Social
'You can get a feed of all the apps that temporarily drop their price to free, you can set up a wish list of apps to watch and get notifications when their prices drop,' says the Redditor that submitted it.
'You text a business, TalkTo will call for you and you ask for reservations, stock checks, etc. ... I lost my wallet and instead of calling all the places asking if they had it, I texted the places I was at that day. Target replied and found my wallet,' said the Redditor that submitted it.
'It's an alarm clock that you rest face down on your bed while you sleep. It uses the accelerometer to measure your movements throughout the night and extrapolate your circadian rhythms. You give it a wakeup time, and in the half hour before that, it wakes you up when your movements suggests a lighter sleep. That way, you don't get jarred out of deep slumber by an alarm and spend all day out of whack,' says the Redditor that submitted it.
App: Little Inferno HD
'The objective is to burn everything you own and make fires in your mini fireplace. It's set in a dystopian future. Very novel indie game. BONUS: No in-app purchases or spamming Facebook friends required,' says the Redditor that submitted it.
