6 Best of the Best New Apps From This Week (5/16-5/23)

New apps come out daily and odds are if it has been released in the last few months we have seen it. There are literally apps for everything but with how terrible the Apple Store is set up, almost 80% of apps will not be found unless you directly search for them. We have an embarrassment of riches in terms of the amount of apps out there and that has led to poor discovery options. With the daily List & Hunts we have discovered a lot of new apps and given them a platform to tell their story with. But now we want to take it a step further and really highlight the best of the best apps that we have featured or evaluated in the past week. With each app we included the download links for both iOS and Android, if available. Also, we calculated the number of stars from their App Store review page, but remember not to read too deep into some of those because they are so new and could be skewed. Enjoy!

Most of us use our phone camera as a way of capturing things we want to do, products we want to buy and places we want to go but they end up lost amongst our other photos. Nine solves this by encouraging you to organize your photo reminders via the use of nine ‘everyday action tags’. Use the camera to grab a snap of what you want to remember, or load a photo from your library. Add a label if you like, nine will record the location.
