There’s one app that’s been dominating the charts for the past few days and it’s Pokémon Go from Niantic Labs. But the game isn’t the only app that was released this week, we’ve got an Android app that makes it easy to tweetstorm, one that lets you buy art, and more. Check out this week’s top five apps.

Pokémon Go

Pokemon Go

You must be living under a rock if you haven’t heard about Pokémon Go yet. The iOS and Android game lets you walk around the real world and capture Pokémon, which you can view in augmented reality thanks to your smartphone’s camera. Local landmarks are now Pokéstops, where you can collect Pokéballs, revives, eggs, and more; players can take over Gyms and defend them with the Pokémon they have caught. The base game is very similar to Ingress, and that’s because it’s made by the same company, Niantic Labs. If you’re ever out on a walk, here’s a great way to stay active and learn more about your community — all while collecting Pokémon from the first generation. Beware of bugs, though, and the servers have been overloaded often. The app also may drain your smartphone’s battery quickly.

Storm It

Storm It
If you’re an avid tweeter, you likely know about “tweetstorms.” No, it’s not a weather-related incident, rather, it’s when someone posts a series of tweets revolving around one event. It’s broken up into separate tweets with numbers, indicating the correct order, and it’s done so because Twitter limits a tweet to 140 characters. Now it’s not hard to do this in the Twitter app, but you may sometimes lose track of your thought process. Storm It makes things simple by letting you write out your whole story or rant in one place, and all you have to do to send it out is press the “Storm it” button once you’re done. Just remember not to spam your followers too much.

Following Tinder’s model, Wydr makes buying art as easy as swiping left or right. There are no expectations, which is nice because “all that counts is your opinion.” You can filter paintings based on your price range and size, and you can purchase any artwork you like right in the app and have it delivered to you wherever you are. On the flip side, if you’re an artist or paint as a hobby — here’s a way to earn some extra cash. Wydr accepts all art pieces, so all you need to do is upload images of your work and hope that someone swipes right.

There’s no end to the amount of note-taking apps on the various app stores, but only few look as good as Buno. To start a note, simply swipe down when you enter the app, and swipe down again to save it. Buno focuses on offering a clean user interface so that you’re not distracted when you type. You can add images, and you can password-protect your notes for some extra security. Buno will have a web-version soon that will sync with the mobile app, but best of all you can share whatever you create with Buno to different social platforms.

After you meet someone new, you may be interested in finding their social profiles — whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, or something else. Gaddr is your one-stop network to find all their profiles in one place, so you don’t have to hunt them down yourself. It’s a good way to hand out your information like a digital business card too, as you can simply create a Gaddr username that links to all your other social networks and websites.

I wish I never bought my iPhone 14 Pro
The iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The original iPhone came out in 2007, but I received mine in 2008 as a birthday gift. Not only was it my first iPhone, but it was also my very first Apple product. But my clumsy little self had a case of the butterfingers one day, and I ended up dropping it on concrete — resulting in a shattered screen. This was just a few weeks before the iPhone 3G was coming out, so instead of just getting the screen replaced, I decided I would upgrade my phone instead.

Thus began a new tradition I set for myself — upgrading my iPhone every year. I’ve had at least one iPhone from every generation that has come out so far, with my latest being the iPhone 14 Pro.

Apple and Google are teaming up to make tracking devices less creepy

Apple and Google are partnering to develop a new standard for Bluetooth tracking devices that seeks to stop malicious stalking and other abusive use of gadgets like the Apple AirTag. Essentially, this would be a universal, OS-level tracker detection and alert system that will work uniformly across Android and iOS. The two companies are inviting stakeholders to review the proposal and submit their feedback within the next three months.

Once the feedback period is over, all the involved parties will work together to finalize the technical standardization, with the hope of releasing a market-ready version by the end of the year. Following the release and adoption by makers of tracking devices, the tech will be generally made available via a software update for Android and iOS devices.
