FIVE APPS TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR NEW BIG PHONE
The Dolby Vision supported by the iPhone XS Max means you can watch Netflix in HDR, even if we haven’t quite got as far as 4K yet. This doesn’t matter, as HDR movies look amazing on the OLED screen, with rich, detailed shadows and bright colours. iTunes content can support Dolby Vision too.
Everyone is playing this game, and it’s been ported to both iOS and Android, so there’s no real excuse to not get on board. The basic idea sees an island of 100 players eliminate one another while building defensive structures. The colourful, almost cartoon-esque graphics and fast-paced action lend themselves to a big phone. Matches rarely take longer than 20 minutes, so you can fit in a couple on your lunch break.
03 ProCam 6
The native iOS camera app is great, with a lot of features that are easy to use, but some prefer a more DSLR-like interface, which is where apps such as ProCam come in. They provide more finely-tuned control over the camera’s settings. In the case of ProCam they add the ability to shoot raw images, which act like digital negatives for processing later.
04 And roid came ra apps
There are so many good camera apps on Google Play, you may not know where to begin. Camera MX is ace if you want to shoot iOS style Live Photos, or try VSCO Cam for a minimalist interface that shoots raw files.
05 Monument Valle y2
Yes it’s another game, but this is very different to Fortnite. Monument Valley 2 is a puzzle game entirely capable of making your brain dribble out of your ears, as you guide a mother and her child through moving 3D mazes, twisting the background with your finger to create new pathways for them to proceed.
