social media moderation and ai apps on apple ipad
It has been a busy week, and you may be reading this on your shiny new iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. If you’re not drowning your spacious internal storage with iMessage apps and stickers, here are a few apps we’ve hunted down from the past week that are worth a download.

Oz: Broken Kingdom

Oz: Broken Kingdom is a role-playing game that has you teaming up with the familiar Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow, and a new character called Ophelia Shen to restore the kingdom of Oz to its former glory. The combat is turn-based and features excellent graphics. You can choose to “save the realm,” or you could jump in the “Arenas of Oz” to fight other players to climb up the leaderboards.



Cardboard Camera

Google’s Cardboard Camera has finally come to iOS. It’s a neat app if you have a Google Cardboard, or any mobile-oriented virtual reality headset lying around. Cardboard Camera lets you take 360-degree photos and share them. Improved sharing features on both Android and iOS apps allow you to send a link to the 360-degree photo to anyone via any social platform, text, email, and more.



Sit With Us

Designed by high-schooler Natalie Hampton, Sit With Us attempts to help find students that end up sitting alone during lunch some company. Hampton made the app after she felt vulnerable and was bullied when she couldn’t find a group or people to sit with during lunch in middle school. The app lets students become “ambassadors” that can post open lunch events, signaling that anyone can sit with them.




Dependn’ wants to help curb your addiction, whether it’s alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, antidepressants, sex, video games, and more. You can track multiple addictions at the same time and add an “intensity” level for each. You can then export this data to your doctor or specialist, but only if you want to share it with him or her. The iOS app offers an Apple Watch integration.


Coding Confessional


This one’s for all you coders out there. Need a place to anonymously post your coding-related practices and thoughts? Coding Confessional is the app for you. The community can absolve or condemn you of your sin, but the app in a way does offer some useful advice from others in the programming community.
