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:
- Google will help you if you're tired of your iPhone
iCulture App of the Week: Maïka If you've ever been out of a café want to get work done, it is sometimes a challenge (especially in unknown places) to find a suitable tent. Is there good internet? Are there electrical outlets? And how is the atmosphere? Maïka offers an answer to these questions. In this app, users can add cafes along with their rating in these areas. For example, a solid map must be launched that will benefit all users.
At the moment, the number of Dutch and Belgian cafes in Maïka is not that great. If everyone contributes, that could be a thing of the past in no time. The app also comes in handy abroad. You can view photos of what it looks like, check the price level, start a route and save your favorite places. The app also includes a handy calculator for different currencies and a way to calculate tips.
Battery Widget 2.0
With the Battery Widget app you can centrally view the battery percentages of your devices. For example, you can check from your iPhone how full your iPad is, or you can check on the dial of your Apple Watch whether there is still enough charge in your MacBook. The app has been around for some time, but has recently received a major update. It also allows you to view the battery percentages of others (with permission, of course). The design has also been improved.
The well-known CleanMyMac X app from developer MacPaw has received a handy update. Advanced support is now available for your Mac's menu bar. Here you can monitor everything. This way you get quick tips to protect your Mac, but you also see the temperature of the Mac and the CPU and RAM usage. In addition, you can take a quick look at the health of your battery if you have a MacBook.
You can download CleanMyMac X from the developer's website.
Another app with a good update! Thunderbird's annual update raises the version number to 102 (!) and brings useful new features to the free email app. First of all, there is a new address book. This function can possibly replace another address book, because it works with vCard. This is the standard for contact cards. In addition, navigating between Thunderbird's various menu items is easier thanks to the new Spaces Toolbar. The app has been given new designs here and there. Thunderbird wants to further implement this in the near future.
You can download Thunderbird for free from the developer's website.
