In the weekly App Missed section you can read which apps from the past week are worth checking out. We always discuss about five apps for iPhone, iPad and Mac. These could be apps that you may not have known about or that are useful or just fun to try. And that can also be veterans who have received a major update and therefore receive some extra attention.
Discussed earlier this week on iCulture:
- Waze now partners with Apple Music: this is how you connect them
- 15 years of Google Street View: new function lets you time travel
iCulture App of the Week: MusicBox We are a fan of apps that play around with your Apple Music or Spotify library in an interesting way. MusicBox is a new app that allows you to view all kinds of relevant information about your music. This way you can see whether you are listening to a single and how many times you have already played the song. You can also easily tag songs.
One of the ways such a tag can be interesting is to listen to music later. For example, if you save an album for later in Apple Music, it can disappear in no time with all the other music you add. In MusicBox, you don't have to worry about that if you tag the albums. There are also ways to automatically tag songs based on rules you define. There is support for Siri Shortcuts and iCloud synchronization. The app is available for iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Gall & Gall XPRESS
Yes, also Gall & Gall is up to date and recently launched a fast delivery app. Place your order in the app and it will be delivered within 60 minutes. A test is currently underway in the Amsterdam Pijp, but we expect this to be expanded. Orders are delivered from the store. So there is no special dark store like you get with ‘real’ see speed cameras. The range is not as extensive as in the store, but it will be expanded.
Looking for a shop, museum, attraction or something else? With Where To? you find out where to go. This app has been around for a long time and is a useful tool for travelers. In version 12 of Where To? the company has added support for shared scooters and shared bikes. In more than 700 cities worldwide you can rent a shared scooter or shared bicycle from a total of more than 120 companies. If the vehicle is electric, you can view the battery percentage in the app in advance. Your routes will be adjusted based on your mode of transport.
WWDC 2022 is coming and then we can already see this update coming: the official Apple Developer app. This is always provided with an update just before WWDC. In version 10, support for SharePlay has been added. This way you can watch WWDC sessions together with someone else, even if you are not physically together. You can now also search for quotes in the search bar and other improvements have been made. This way the app is completely ready for WWDC 2022.
Just under a year after its release on Xbox, PlayStation and Windows, Psychonauts 2 is also available on Mac. In this game, you play as Raz, a trained acrobat who is also psychic. He's eager to join the psychic spy organization Psychonauts, but it's not easy. Their leader is not the same after a kidnapping and the spies are in danger. The mole at HQ doesn't look too good either. Psychonauts 2 is an adventurous platformer.
Day & Age
Do you often forget someone's birthday and don't want to have to score a last minute gift next time? Then Day & Age an app for you. This free app from Dutch soil shows you in one list who's birthday is coming soon and how old they will be. The list is divided into parts. This way you can quickly see whether people have their birthday today or next week. There is also a general list of everyone's birthday. This information comes from the contact card you saved in the Contacts app.
