WHAT’S HOT IN THE APP STORE
Hyperlapse from Instagram (Free) The handiest part of Instagram’s new time-lapse video app is its in-house image stabilization feature, which offers high-quality results sans tripod. As well as converting videos of up to 45 minutes into smooth recordings that are 12 times faster than the original, Hyperlapse works seamlessly with Instagram and Facebook, making sharing your videos quick and simple.
Hanx Writer (Free) Nostalgic for the traditional look and feel of writing on a typewriter, Tom Hanks helped develop this hit app, which replicates the design and sounds associated with typewriting—from the classic font to clicking keys and, of course, that characteristic “ding.” Hanx Writer hit No. 1 on the App Store and, at print time, boasted a 4.5-star rating based on over 3,500 reviews.
Remind: Safe Classroom Communication (Free) A must-have app for teachers everywhere, Remind lets you send messages to students and parents in a professional way, without sharing phone numbers or allowing one-on-one conversations with students. Along with helping teachers, Remind makes it easier for students to stay informed about upcoming assignments.
7 Minute Workout Challenge (Free) This international hit workout may seem simple (and perhaps too short), but it’s incredibly helpful for those trying to establish a healthy fitness routine. Consisting of 12 high-intensity exercises that you perform for 30 seconds each, this app’s 7-minute workout is the equivalent of an hour’s worth of gym time—minus the equipment and complicated routines!
