This month’s mobile must-downloads
1 Minimoog Model D
£14.99 / IOS The world’s first portable synth, the analogue Minimoog Model D was horribly expensive. But now, with 160 presets, you can get it stuffed inside your extremely portable IOS device – and for relative peanuts.
4 321 Launch
£free / IOS, Android Turn any flat surface into a miniature Kennedy Space Center with this AR app. Build a rocket, annoy everyone with a noisy countdown and make cooing noises as a virtual rocket blasts off in your face.
7 Will Hero
£free (IAPS) / IOS, Android Everyone in this weirdo one-thumb platformer is a bouncy, vicious square. It’s good stuff, though, with you bounding along, unleashing violent death while trying to avoid surprisingly deadly windmills.
2 Scanbot 7
£free (IAPS) / IOS, Android Nobody actually owns a scanner… but Scanbot makes it a cinch to grab multi-page documents on your phone, make them readable and hurl the results at colleagues. This new version has improved filters.
£3.99 / IOS Did you once hate slicing up a frog at school? The frog hated it more. Offer solidarity with your amphibian chums by going digital in this AR oddity, and educate yourself about froggy life cycles.
£1.99 / IOS, Android Summoned by a Germanic god, apparently with a penchant for spears and 1980s heavy metal, you’re told to skewer evil monsters. Master the throwing arc, head-shot ogres and yell “DAS IS GUT!”
3 Linea Sketch
£9.99 / IOS If you don’t need a full-on art app but have the urge to scribble, Linea Sketch balances simplicity and power. Its Zipline feature will even straighten a wiggly line if you press down after drawing it.
6 Score! Match
£free (IAPS) / IOS, Android Ever wished you could scrawl a line from your player’s boot to the net? That’s Score! Match: the beautiful game as turn-based line-drawing, albeit with not-so-beautiful freemium gunk. Yellow card!
9 The Room: Old Sins
£4.99 / Android Finally, this tactile exploratory puzzler is here to scare the willies out of Android fans, while smacking their brains out with a brick due to its warped spooky logic. Play it in the dark, if you dare.
