FIVE APPS TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR NEW BIG PHONE

T3 - - State Of The Art -

01 Net­flix

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.

02 Fort­nite

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.
