WHAT’S HOT IN THE APP STORE

iPhone Life Magazine - - Istats -

Robin­hood (Free) If you're a novice in­vestor, pay­ing $10 per trade can re­ally start to add up over time. That's why co­founders Vladimir Tenev and Baiju Bhatt cre­ated Robin­hood, a no-fee bro­ker­age app that al­lows users to buy and sell US-listed stocks at no cost, as well as view mar­ket data, place trades, and cus­tomize watch­lists. All users have to do is connect the app to their bank ac­count, and they can begin buy­ing!

Alto’s Adventure ($1.99) This end­less snow board­ing-themed game may seem like just an­other cliché run­ner, but where Alto's Adventure ex­cels is in its sim­ple game­play and stunning at­ten­tion to de­tail, from its med­i­ta­tive sound­track filled with pi­ano notes and en­vi­ron­men­tal noise to its gor­geous de­sign and graph­ics.

Meerkat (Free) Meerkat lets you tune into events as they hap­pen around the world. This up-and-com­ing app al­lows you to live-stream videos from your iPhone di­rectly to Twit­ter. While Twit­ter re­moved Meerkat's abil­ity to im­port so­cial con­nec­tions di­rectly from Twit­ter's plat­form, the new app's user base is con­tin­u­ing to grow nev­er­the­less.

Dark­room (Free) Although Dark­room pro­vides plenty of the typ­i­cal tools you've come to know and love in a photo-edit­ing app—such as the abil­ity to ap­ply fil­ters and make ba­sic ad­just­ments to con­trast and sharp­ness—it also of­fers some­thing else: the abil­ity to ad­just curves like you would in Pho­to­shop! Curves, which re­quires an in-app pur­chase of $1.99, al­lows you to in­di­vid­u­ally ad­just de­tails like high­lights and shad­ows, giv­ing you greater con­trol over the look of your im­age.
