Notable apps and updates, Oct. 21-26

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 this week’s picks.

iOS

Fender has launched its all-new second subscription-based app, Fender Songs, which gives guitarists, ukulele players and pianists access to chords and lyrics to their favorite songs. 

With Apple Music streaming, players are able to access millions of songs to learn, practice, play, and sing along in an immersive experience with audio for each track. The app features verified chord content and suggested songs to play based on a user’s Apple Music listening history, along with three interactive stages to support a player’s learning journey of their current favorite songs. 

Pirate’s Moon has debuted MyArtToolsLite 1.0, a $1.99 artistic app built for the iPhone. 

Use the app to open and filter photos, use the art tools to create beautiful sketches and paintings anywhere, and share your creations using any social networking apps on your iPhone. Users can create their drawings from scratch, or they can import images from the Photos Library where they can be modified, drawn over, filtered or used as templates.

Hunter Research and Technology’s iOS app Theodolite is now available for the Apple Watch.

It places a suite of measuring instruments on your wrist. Theodolite for Watch combines a compass, inclinometer, and GPS into one app. It’s available at an introductory price of $1.99.
