Ping For iOS: A Mobile Email Experience That's More Like Texting

Every other startup out there is trying to become the new big thing in email, but what we get more often than not is a bunch of half-baked tweaks that sound nice on paper but don’t really do all that much to change the experience. Ping, however, actually is probably unlike any other email client you’ve used before.


Silent Text For Android: A Secure Text Service That Self-Destructs

Push Launcher For iOS: Access Your Go-To Apps In One Easy Location

Now, there’s only so much you can really do as far as shortcuts go on an (non-jailbroken) iPhone. But if you’re set in your ways and still want some of the saved seconds a neat and tidy app launcher could afford you, Push Launcher is about as close as you’re going to get.


Digg For Android Is Finally Here: Get Your Read On A Million Ways

The Converted For iOS: A Conversion App That Gives You Context

While this generally goes unsaid, the internet has become a huge crutch — but more than that, we’re pretty much blind without it. What do you do when you need to convert meters to feet?

Blackbar For iOS: Your Very Own PRISM-Like Sci-Fi Adventure Put To Text

With most of the documents released by the NSA being an exercise in fitting as few letters as possible between strings of black bas, it’s no wonder that a whole slew of [Redacted]-oriented games have been cropping up.

Emojify For iOS: Turn Your Face Into A Piece Of Emoji Art

Look at the text message conversation between any two people in the 12 to late 20s age range and there’s a pretty decent chance you’ll get a deluge of brightly coloured cartoon icons that, just a few years ago, would have seemed entirely nonsensical. Now they can tell entire tales. Yes, Emojis have taken over, and rather than fight it, Emojify offers you just one more way to incorporate the language replacement into your life — gilding your very own photos in emoji gold.


Delectable Wine For iOS: Identify Wine And Dole Out Recs Like A Pro

Human Body For iOS: Almost The Most Fun You'll Have Exploring Your Body

While most educational apps are generally intended for children, let’s be honest — anyone not in the field probably remembers next to nothing about how the human body works other than the fact that, you know, it does.
