Top Downloads This Week
Every week we share the number of downloads for all platforms to help you get started. Here are the top downloads this week.
iOS: You need a notary from time to time, whether it’s a will, a mortgage, or some other contract. You can probably find a notary near you quite easily, but if you don’t feel like leaving your home, the Notarize app lets you do it from your phone.
iOS / Android / Mac / Windows: iDisplay, a utility that turns your tablet into a fully functional second screen for your computer, just updated with more speed increases, much lower Wi-Fi latency, support for Android tablets, OS X El Capitan and much more.
Twitter was in tears, making tons of changes that its users never asked for. From today’s new ‘Best of’ module to promoted tweets and ‘while you were out’, it’s all useless for those who just want to read a clean stream. Here’s how to get your timeline back.
Mac: There are many browser tools out there to test your internet speed, but they are usually filled with nasty ads. If you prefer your own app, Speedster is free and does its job well.
Strange didn’t leave much information on how he created this beautiful desktop with the Half Dome in the center, but we can figure it out. Here’s what you’ll need if you want your Mac to look and feel like this.
iOS: Victories is an app that takes every to-do on your to-do list and turns it into a “battle,” where doing is winning and putting off is giving up. As you get more productive, your character gets better, and there are stats and tons of data to ponder on as you push your character to progress.
If you’re emailing yourself recipes, printing them out, or still keeping index cards, there is a better way. Grab your Android phone, there are tons of great recipe apps out there, but we have one that we think is the right mix of features at a reasonable price. Paprika is the app for you.
iPhone: The DRM-free audiobook business isn’t exactly booming (although sites like Downpour and LibriVox exist to help you find them), that doesn’t mean you might not have audiobook files in your Dropbox account. If you do that, Bound will be a great player.
Mac: Wolfram Alpha has a ton of useful information, but sometimes it’s easy to forget about it. Nimble is a small menu bar app that will add this search engine to your Mac’s menu bar.
