WHAT’S HOT IN THE APP STORE
FRICKbits Data Art (Free) Transform your everyday life into a personal masterpiece with this brilliant little app by artist Laurie Frick. Described by Frick as a "data selfie," FRICKbits gathers your location-based data and creates stunning watercolor-inspired artwork that’s centered around you and your travels. With an app like this, you’ll be inspired to cover more ground, and after a few days, FRICKbits will churn out an abstract work of art.
Angry Birds Stella (Free) This sassy new addition to the Angry Birds franchise is centered around Stella and her group of friends as they fight to save Golden Island from the Bad Princess Gale. And though the app has a whole new set of characters and powers, the premise of the game is the same—players catapult birds at nearby structures with a slingshot in an attempt to destroy the wicked green pigs.
Day One ($4.99) Apple has showered this journaling app with awards in recent years—and for good reason! Day One is a beautifully designed cross-platform app that lets you record your thoughts and stories easily, thanks to its smart features and user-friendly interface. With each entry, you can add photos and tag them with keywords and locations.
Litely (Free) Litely offers a collection of authentic-looking, film-inspired filters similar to VSCOcam, as well as simple adjustment tools that let you tweak contrast, vibrance, and exposure. Litely’s presets are subtle, aiming to improve your images without taking away from their natural beauty. The app comes with 9 filters, and you can purchase more from the app’s collection of 48 premium presets.
