WHAT’S HOT IN THE APP STORE
DSCO (Free) GIFS are all the rage these days—and now the makers of popular photoediting app VSCO have released an app that lets you create your very own GIF animations and share them directly to your VSCO and social media accounts. Make clips up to 2.5 seconds long, and apply popular VSCO filters by swiping right or left. Upon saving, the app will save both the GIF and MP4 video to your phone. Running by Gyroscope (Free) If you're a runner, then you should consider downloading this app by Gyroscope. When paired with either Strava (free) or Runkeeper (free), this app imports your stats to create gorgeous visualizations of your runs, consisting of things like satellite images, your photos, or even fun stats like how many doughnuts you burned on your five-mile run. You can then share your accomplishment with friends or simply save it for your records. Great Big Story (Free) This app aims to educate the world, one intriguing story at a time. Sponsored by CNN, Great Big Story offers a daily selection of stories in the form of bite-sized videos that touch on everything—from historical tidbits about the creation of nachos to featured profiles on nostalgic figures like Lisa Frank. The app certainly strays from standard journalism, but that's kind of what makes it so awesome.
