Notable apps and app updates for May 2, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Mac OS X Apps/Updates

Ensenasoft has introduced MOP: Operation Cleanup 1.0, an arcade runner for Mac OS X. 

To save the world players must sweep the area for trash and run, jump, swim and slide their way through each world, destroying enemies and obstacles blocking their path. You can explore five worlds with 50 missions. 

MOP: Operation Cleanup 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later. It costs $4.99 and is available at the Mac App Store.

VideoTweet is a new app for Mac OS X with one objective – to provide a simple way of sending videos to Twitter.

It’s designed to handle all the details of uploading a video with your tweet. Videos can be dragged to the standalone application. However, it also supports sharing from iPhoto, QuickTime and Final Cut Pro. X

VideoTweets is free; however, tweets will contain a link back to the developers site. Register for approximately $3.45, and the link will disappear.

iOS Apps/Updates for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Journey Interactive has given us Journey Creator 1.0. The $4.99 app is designed to help you create your own location-based app. Once a user enters information, he can send it to Journey Interactive who will take the data and publish a custom app “for a very affordable fee.”

PeqApps has debuted Stay-U 1.0. The free app provides cognitive assessment based on players' scores in 25 fun and challenging brain games. Games are played in the Game Center with two players, and scores are based on reaction time and skill level.

Stonelight Pictures has rolled out Battery Share 1.0.1. The $0.99 app is designed for those times when you tried to get ahold of someone, but their phone was dead and you should have called or messaged a little bit sooner. Battery Share sends you notifications when your friends are running low on power.
