We have a new pick for the best Reddit client for iOS »

The Sweet Setup Guide to Cutting the Cord

The introduction of Apollo was met with much acclaim, and for good reason. Christian Selig, being a former Apple intern, worked on Apollo for 3+ years to make the app feel right at home on your iPhone or iPad. The result is one of those apps that feels perfectly natural on iOS, as though the app was designed by Apple itself.

But this certainly didn’t make it any easier to select a new winner in the Reddit client arena. Narwhal was our former pick and has undergone great development since our review. In many ways, choosing a winner in this category doesn’t feel quite right — wherever Apollo stutters, Narwhal picks up the slack, and vice versa.

Three apps we’re trying this week: June 25, 2018 »

There are many apps that grace the Mac and iOS App Stores that simply don’t get enough attention or admiration. Sometimes an app is so good at what it does, it becomes the default app for the task and is rarely questioned. Sometimes a new app debuts in a given category and, while it shows promise, doesn’t quite live up to our pick for the best in that category.

There are millions of apps to try out on any given day, but we are trying out When.Works, Microsoft News, and Adobe Lightroom CC for iPad this week.

Darkroom 3.6 introduces new frame tool »

Our favorite photo editing app for iPhone is adding a new top-level tool to its arsenal: Frames.

For many photographers, a key aspect of their style on Instagram and similar networks is the consistent look of their photos. While this is mostly achieved through shooting and normal tonal editing, some take it a step further and encase their images in frames before posting to help them stand out in crowded timelines.

Version 3.6 of the acclaimed app eliminates the need for third-party tools for this step, allowing you to add and manipulate frames intelligently from within Darkroom itself.
