Over on our YouTube channel, we have an ongoing video series that is meant to highlight new, interesting and useful apps for iPhone and iPad that we think are worth downloading and checking out.
There are so many apps in the App Store that it can be difficult to find new high quality apps to download, plus it’s easy to overlook amazing apps that are a little older. Our February selections include apps to customize Apple Watch and iPhone, find and manage Apple Music, keep track of TV shows, take notes, and more.
- Soor ($ 4.99) ̵
- TV forecast (Free) – TV Forecast lets you keep track of the TV shows you are watching, and provides an easy way to mark which episode you are on. There are notifications when a new episode is about to air, and you can share progress with friends and family. There is information about actors in TV shows, and you can get recommendations for new shows to watch. TV Forecast is free for five shows, but costs $ 0.99 per month for more.
- Moloko (Free) – Moloko is a theme app that makes it easier to customize your iOS home screen by replacing the icons. It offers a variety of themes that have custom icons for both built-in and third-party apps, and are easy to install, so you don’t have to use the Shortcuts app and replace icons manually. Note that you must install a profile to use the quick icon switch.
- Aviary ($ 3.99) – Aviary is available on all Apple devices and is a third-party Twitter client that can be used instead of the standard Twitter apps. It has a simple, clean interface that can be customized the way you want, plus it supports modern features such as polls, hash flags, trends and more.
- Crafts (Free) – Craft is a document creation and management tool that you can use to take notes and organize your thoughts. It supports Markdown, backlinks, snippets of code, photos and videos, and everything you create can be shared via a web link. Craft is free, but it’s a $ 4.99 per month “Pro” subscription option. The Pro version supports larger file options, offers more storage space and has a version history feature.
- BuddyWatch (Free) – BuddyWatch is an app that makes it easier to create new dials for the Apple Watch. You can share dials, view dials designed by other people and get suggested dials based on your preferences.
- Kitty Letter (Free) – Designed by The Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman, who also created the popular game Exploding Kittens, Kitty Letter is a word game where you create words from a jumble of letters to form an exploding cat army to attack your neighbor and defend your home. You can play the single player promotion or go against each other against your friends.
