Apple App of the Week – The Top 9

1. ESPN

ESPN

The number one sports source in the nation recently revealed its new app.

The app used to be called “SportsCenter” but has been renamed into “ESPN” and has been redesigned to be less cluttered and far simpler. But what’s more important is that there is finally an app for the iPad. There is a “Now” section in the app that incorporates Twitter in it so it shows you links and stories that you may wish to read. Also, there is a “Favorites” section which makes following your favorite teams a walk in the park.

Available for: iPad and iPhone

Price: Free

2. Saturday Night Live

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, SNL has recently launched a new app that features every sketch it’s ever done. There are 5,500 sketches you can watch in the app. This is quite impressive, seeing how the app is completely free. And as episodes will continue to air, more sketches will be included in the SNL app.

Available for: iPhone (United States only)

Price: Free

3. Saver 2

Tracking all your expenses and trying to fit within a budget can be a real hassle. However, there are numerous apps that will help you achieve this. Saver 2 is worthy of being taken into consideration if you wish to make sense of all your expenses.

The app tracks one bank account but you can upgrade it to get more.

4. Workflow

Workflow got better last week with numerous new features such as advanced sharing and 50 new workflows. But even though Workflow has been updated by the developers, it’s still missing a crucial function: the capability to sync workflows between different devices.

Price: Free

5. Wanderu

This is a very useful app that was released last week. You can easily find, compare and book tickets for trains and buses from more than 50 partners. The information in your account can be pre filled in order to save time and trips that you take frequently can be saved.

Price: Free

6. Starbucks

The Starbucks app just got Apple Pay support. However, it isn’t the way you expect it to be. Unfortunately you can only use Apple Pay to recharge your Starbucks card in the app. At the register, barcodes will still be scanned because Starbucks shops haven’t started using NFC payment options. They will probably start offering Apple Pay within stores in the near future and until then this is definitely a step forward.

Available for: iPhone

Price: Free

7. Darkroom

Apple App of the Week

Having Darkroom is kind of like having Lightroom on your smartphone. It’s not very difficult to see why Apple chose to feature the app on the front page in the App Store. If you are searching for a great, full featured image editor for your iPhone that will let you use all sorts of filters on your photos, this is it.

Available for: iPhone
