Our Top 5 Apps We Love This Week
Here are some apps we're keeping our eyes on this week at Fueled
Every week at Fueled, we share an internal anthology of the week's greatest new apps. As mobile developers, we're lucky to hear about and download cool new apps every day that make our lives easier, entertain us, or keep our eyes and hands busy in awkward situations.
Here are some things we're keeping our eyes on this week.
Sure, there are apps out there that let you share pictures and videos with friends. But what if you want to easily share a set of photos, videos, audio and text in a single album? Introducing Muzio, the new iPhone app that allows you to curate and share experiences through all the aforementioned mediums in one place. It's simple, yet sleek, black and white theme offers convenience and ease to its users.
For most of us workdays consist of sitting in a chair for hours on end. Sadly, workdays aren't getting shorter so finding time to take a break is a must. Stretch is an app for Macs that allows users to pick from 21 different reminder messages and then schedule them throughout the workday. The app will then guide you through randomly selected stretches with the option of playing music during your break. Get up, get moving and check this out!
Izik (pronounced EYE-zik) is an app that allows users to easily explore the Web on tablets. You can type in anything -- a restaurant, sports team, celebrity, whatever -- and Izik brings up image-laden content that is both visually-stimulating and easy to explore. A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, is a nice addition to plain headlines when searching!
Wibbitz is an app that turns articles into videos for the user that doesn't have the attention span (let's be honest), or time, to read. Claiming a "clean and minimalistic approach" is quite the understatement: the app, complete with a swiping interface, cleans up content-heavy articles with videos that allow users to connect to the actual article through swipes. Think of it as the Cliffs Notes for news articles.
Swipes is a daily task planner wrapped in a sleek and simple package. Tasks are sorted into three groups on the menu, Today's Tasks, Scheduled Tasks and Done. Tasks can be scheduled for the moment or in the future. Simply swipe to complete the task, feeling the gratification of getting stuff done.
