This week’s list of ideal apps has something for just about everyone. With Major League Baseball headed to Spring Training, a new version of MLB.com At Bat hits the App Store with its usual flood of statistics, live game feeds and information for sports lovers. If you’ve been a fan of the app in the past, you’ll want to check it out again this year. But we’ve also got stuff for readers, runners, photographers, graphic designers and even zombie lovers, so take a look below.
MLB.com At Bat (iPhone, iPad) Free (with in-app buys for subscription)
It’s that time again. Baseball season is steadily approaching, and it’s time for a new and updated version of MLB.com At Bat. And like every year, the app comes packed with a large amount of information about the upcoming baseball season that no fan should be without. You’ll need to pay for a subscription through an in-app purchase, but once you do, you’ll be able to watch Spring Training games with an MLB.TV subscription or listen to them via radio feeds, follow stats and get batter-by-batter rundowns of each game. More features are also set to come on-line on Opening Day.
The latest app for reading web pages on your iOS device is Readability, and it has an elegant way of presenting text for mobile readers. Like similar apps, Readability uses a browser plugin on your desktop computer to let you save articles you want to read for later. You can then access those pages on your iPhone or iPad, but with all the web design, ads, links and other noise stripped out to make for a quick, simple and comfortable reading experience. You can also share articles with others through social media connections and search through the archives of things you’ve saved to find them again later.
Mobile device photography continues to become more and more convenient and powerful, and it’s because of apps like Camera Awesome. The app makes snapping great shots simple by including software that automatically optimizes the color, brightness and other aspects of your shots with one touch to make them look great. The app is also packed with other handy things, too, like tons of professionally designed filters, editing capabilities, and the capability to share pics and videos straight to lots of social networks, including Facebook and YouTube.
Sure, running can be a great way to maintain good health, but for some people (like me), running for the sake of running just isn’t fun. Fortunately, everyone can concur that running from zombies – even if they’re fictional – is much more enjoyable. Zombies, Run! provides the zombies and takes fitness tracking app abilities and turns them into a bit of a game. You’ll undertake missions using your iPhone’s GPS technology and work through a zombie apocalypse narrative that plays over your headphones when you run. It’s like being in a video game, but instead of sitting around, you’ll get healthier.
After a bit of a wait, a new version of Adobe’s world-renowned Photoshop editing program is available for the iPad, combining the simplicity and ease of touch controls with the power of Photoshop. The app isn’t quite as capable as what you’d get on your desktop, but it definitely still packs a lot of features for graphic editors. It grants users to create some incredible images without the need for the much bigger version of the software. Adobe also has included some cloud-saving abilities to make sure users always have enough space to save their images.
