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 for iOS and Mac OS X:
MLB.com At Bat (free with in-app purchases) has been updated and is already providing baseball-starved fans across North America with the latest in coverage of Spring Training 2016. What's new for 2016? Well, iPad owners are going to be thrilled, since it's finally possible to view the app in both portrait and landscape orientations. On certain iPads like the iPad Pro, there's now a multitasking split view and Picture-in-Picture streaming for live video and highlights. Just about every bit of the app, including Gameday, News Reader, Videos and Sortable Stats, has been redesigned. And oh, yeah -- an Apple Watch app!
Do you often find yourself in some great new place, whether in the middle of a city or out in the boonies, and then you never find your way back there? With the new Placeboard app for iPhone ($4.99), you can easily trap information about locations that you've fallen in love with, complete with directions, annotations, and more.
OS X Apps/Updates
What the world needs now is one more text editor, and that editor is Rough Draft (free, with in-app purchases). Actually, the developers of Rough Draft say it's all about writing, not editing. They want you to just get words down, and it replaces the delete key on your keyboard with a strikethrough key, giving you insight into how your story is progressing. It's new, it's somewhat rough around the edges, but Apple named it a best new app. Want to share your doc with others to see what they think? It can be shared on RoughDrafts.com or published to Medium.
Ever wish that you had a clipboard on your Mac that would actually let you go back and find something that you copied an hour or week ago? Paste ($6.99) is a clipboard history manager for OS X that recognizes and stores text, images, links, files, you name it. Paste has a very high rating on the Mac App Store, and those items in your clipboard history can even be shared via AirDrop or sent to friends and co-workers.
