AppDay Sunday, June 14, 2015

Here’s a roundup of the week’s very best app releases and updates. We’ll be posting each Sunday after we sort through everything and select the best apps for you.Without further ado, here are this week’s AppDay Sunday to check out.

1. IF

2. Day One

3. Private Camera Pro

4. Bing

1. IF

IF by IFTTT

IF is a web-based productivity tool that allow you to interconnect websites and your mobile devices in order to automate tasks. It works on the simple premise: If this (happens) then (do) that. But what makes IF really useful is the thousands of ‘recipes’, or pre-made scripts, that let you automate your tech world while barely lifting a finger.

IF is all about creating what it calls “recipes.” These recipes are essentially commands that you create within the app that it then dictates to other apps and services to create a new function that otherwise wouldn’t happen. It’s kind of confusing when you’re trying to imagine it, but when you see it in practice it makes total sense. An example recipe would be something like “If tomorrow’s forecast calls for rain, send me a text message.” IF then sends that command to the two apps that it runs through, Weather and your SMS service of choice, to provide you with a text update if there is rain incoming.

Whether you’re looking to get more use out of particular apps, create specific types of events that will make your life easier, or just take a look at what other tech-centric minds out there have come up with to improve app features, IF is worth a download

Available On: iOS, Android

Price: Free


2. Day One

Day One

Journals need not be only text. Photos. Locations. Weather. Tags and sorting. We have these computers in our pockets at all times. Our journal apps needn’t be constrained only to when we have time to sit and muse.

Day One combines the simple daily log, event log, activity log, or whatever else log, along with a photo album, and long-form expressive writing. It serves many purposes.

Over the past year and a half I have been using Day One regularly. Many of my entries are nothing more than a photo and perhaps a quick descriptive sentence. That, combined with the automatic location and weather logging, means I’m creating worthwhile journal entries with very little effort on my part.

Day One exploits all the technological advantages you would expect in a digital journal: I can use my Mac, iPhone, or iPad to log pictures, notes, and locations. I can know what the weather was like that day, I can know where I was when I wrote that entry, I can know how many miles I walked at the time of the entry, and I can export my entire journal as a Plain Text file or PDF that will be readable 20 years from now.

It’s these exploits that make the app easy to use, fun to use, and something that requires very little input for a great amount of return.

Once you import photos from your photo library it will ask you if you want to delete the photos or videos from your photo library, and done ! that simple

4. Bing Search

Bing

Yes Yes we all know you guys love Bing so much 😀

The reason this app made it to our AppDay Sunday is not because of your love but the app’s iOS 8 Extension. Bing has been updated with a great translation extension, it can translate any webpage in Safari to the language of your choice.

The translation extension in Safari can be activated by opening the iOS share sheet through the browser and tapping on “more” from the activities list. Next, toggle on Bing Translator. Then, there will always be a button in the Actions list of the share sheet that, when pressed, will automatically translate a page from its current language to the desired one that you choose from.

Other than that there is nothing much significant in the App 😛

Available On: iOS , Android

Price: Free
