Our Favourite Android, iOS And Windows Phone Apps Of The Week

It's Monday again, and that means a fresh batch of new apps to help you through it.


Multi-Platform Updates

Pandora

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

Chromecast capability is a nice little addition to Pandora's iPhone and Android phone/tablet app. No iPad support just yet, but if the Android version's tablet-optimised UI is any indicator, it'll look pretty nice. [Android] [iOS]


Android

MyEffectivenessHabits

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

A to-do list is useless if it isn't organised. MyEffectivenessHabits plots your tasks in four categories along two axes: Urgent/Not Urgent, and Important/Not Important. Dwight Eisenhower invented this method — imagine all the things he could've accomplished with a smartphone. [Free, H/T Lifehacker]

Ingress

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

This mind-boggling augmented reality game turns the real world into an MMORPG where you search for clues, claim landmarks and collaborate with players in the real and virtual worlds. It's been wildly popular but invite-only, but the newest update drops the invite requirement. [Free]

Down

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

Bang With Friends is back, with a more coquettish name and lots more options. The I'm-into-it-if-you're-into-it app lets you pick which Facebook friends you'd totally get "friendly" with, and messages both parties if a match is made. This week's update adds friends-of-friends browsing, and a "Get Date" option if you're old-fashioned about app-assisted booty calls. There's no iOS version yet, which probably sounds like a bonus feature to some of you wackos. [Free]


iOS

Gneo

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

This productivity and organisation app puts your to-dos in a framework for success. Organising tasks by importance and urgency, and slotting tasks into the right-sized gaps in your calendar, Gneo filters your obligations into notebooks (work, play, home, hobbies), syncs with Evernote, and pops up reminders so nothing gets lost in the shuffle.

Fantastical 2

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

This familiar calendar helper just got a whole new iOS7 revamp, and wow does it look slick. Event reminders and maps make sure you never forget when and where you're supposed to be, and dictating an event automatically puts it in your calendar. Auto-syncing with all your Fantastical devices makes sure you're up to speed no matter which glowing rectangle you're holding. [$3]


Windows Phone

Foundbite

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

Know the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words"? Sure, it's cool as a metaphor. But actual, talking photos are even cooler! Foundbite grabs a sound clip along with your photos for a multisensory, immersive way to capture a moment, with a social sharing side that lets you explore other Foundbiter experiences across the globe. [Free]

Digitally Imported

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

If you like Pandora, but wish it was strictly electronica, this app is the answer to your sweaty, 120bpm prayers. A streaming feast of electronic music, it offers you over 60 channels curated by expert DJs, with moods ranging frome House to Trance to Lounge to Ambient. [Free]

#MoWithLove

Our Favourite Android, iOS and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

Trying out different styles of facial hair is great, but it takes weeks. And if you screw up trimming that handlebar, you'll be walking around with a botched masterpiece on your face. Skip the pitfalls with #MoWithLove, which lets you superimpose a 'stache on any selfie. And yes, I am going to wash out my own mouth with soap after having typed that. Ugh. [Free]
