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.
OS X Apps and Updates
It's quite common to see a Mac app gain an iOS counterpart, but still relatively rare to see software moving in the other direction from iOS to Mac. That's the case with Priime Styles (US$29.99 launch price), an iOS app that's now available on Mac that has over 100 styles (presets or filters) that can be used with any standard compressed (TIFF, JPG or PNG) images or a number of RAW formats. Priime Styles works as a standalone app or can be integrated with Photos and Lightroom. Get it now while it's available for $30, as the price is likely to rise soon. It's a Mac App Store Editor's Choice.
GIPHY CAPTURE. The GIF Maker
Remember GIFGrabber for Mac? Well, the folks who bring you an infinite number of GIFs -- Giphy -- have taken that app and tweaked it, and released it with a new name: GIPHY CAPTURE (free). It's full of fun, allowing you to capture video on your Mac, edit it, add captions, and then upload GIFs to Giphy, Facebook, Twitter or Facebook Messenger. Heck, you can even post them here!
iOS Apps and Updates
Remember me earlier talking about Mac apps that move to iOS? Blogo (free with in-app purchases) has been around the Mac world for a while, and it's a powerful blog publishing tool that now runs on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac. If you blog with WordPress (either .com or self-hosted), Medium, or Blogger, use this tool to write, edit and publish your posts. You get a live preview that knows what your theme looks like and shows you exactly what your post will look like. The in-app purchase for $69.99 annually provides the ability to add as many blogs as you want, sync your drafts with Evernote, moderate and reply to blog comments, and do social mirrors.
Hey, it's a combination of Lost and every survivalist show you've ever watched. Radiation Island is also today's top seller on the iOS App Store. It's optimized for the newer processors and takes advantage of Metal. If you survive to a certain level, you unlock multiplayer mode and play other real players online.
