Welcome to the new Apps of the Week, where we give you all the cool apps we came across in one place. Android folks, iOS folks, and Windows Phone folks, now you can all come together and live in peace, sharing in the joy that is a cool new app.
This free-to-use and ad-free (!) streaming music app just joined iOS from the Android world. It peruses the music on your device and builds stations around the type of music you like, in addition to standard Top Picks and genre stations. Plus, you earn points ("groovies") by sharing songs on social media or signing up for artists' email updates, allowing you to listen to specific songs on-demand. [Free]
Aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate, Readmill's new Android app gives you an uncluttered book-like page, a low-strain nighttime display mode, and a great community of fellow readers to help you discover new books to devour. Plus, the Readmill library hosts lots of free books, and your account will keep your reading list in sync across all your devices. [Free]
Picking up where Tasker leaves off, this aptly-named app (ha!) uses geofencing to send alerts based on your location. You can wake yourself up when your bus nears your stop, remind yourself to pick something up at the grocery store, or automatically send a text to let your friend know you're waiting outside. Or, really, any other location-based alert you can imagine. [Free]
If you've got documents saved across Dropbox, Google Drive and Gmail, tracking down the thing you're after can be a pain. FindIt lets you filter through all three, searching by file type, people involved, or time period. The free download gives you 30 email or file previews, or invite 5 friends to use it and get unlimited searches. [Free]
Turn your photos into infographics with Phototag. This brand-new (seriously, version 1.0) app gives you overlays to add info to your pics, specifically Place, Weather, Food, and Baby (which sounds weird unless you're a parent). It's got an easy user interface, photo filter effects, and integrated sharing to all the typical social media (Facebook/Twitter/Flickr/Instagram) plus Renren, Sina Weibo and VK. It's free for now, but the listing gives us the impression that'll change. [Free]
The great looking layout of this third-party Flickr app makes the lack of native Flickr support a nonissue. Indulged offers powerful editing, 20 filters and a great navigation set to help you post, organise and view gorgeous photos, and it's free with no annoying advertisements to clutter your view. [Free]
