What do you get when you stick Pinterest, Flipboard, Twitter Cards, and the Wirecutter into a blender? I suspect the result might look something like Wildcard, the brainchild of former New York Times designer Khoi Vinh and the other folks behind Coopkanics. Wildcard, released Thursday, combines trending news with featured collections of goods and services to offer you a solution to all your first-world problems.
Subscriptions are nothing new. For generations we've subscribed to magazines, newspapers, TV channels, and more. Software-as-a-service has been popular for a while now as well, and slowly, steadily, subscription-based apps have rolled out across the App Store. But with that power comes responsibility. You want a regular, reliable stream of monthly payments from me? Well, I want a regular, reliable stream of updates and support from you!
Documents by Readdle is now available for the iPhone. Now a universal app, Documents lets you read Office documents, annotate PDFs, edit text files, listen to music, look at photos, and more.

Documents stores all of your files, from music to PDFs, and you can move files from Documents to iCloud by tapping the “Edit” button and selecting which files to move.
For most users, Game Center is all about matching up with friends and competing for rankings and checking out leaderboards. It's not much fun though if you don't have anyone to play against.

While Photo Stream and apps like Albumatic are easy ways to share photos with friends and family, they still leave something to be desired. If you go on a trip or vacation, you probably have things to say about your photos. Unless you leave a comment on your own photo, there's not much else you can do. That isn't the case with MapQuest Travel Blogs for iPhone and iPad.

Albumatic for iPhone is somewhat similar to photo sharing services like Instagram but focuses more on creating albums and sharing them with the people you already know, not just anyone. It's somewhat simliar to Apple's own Photo Stream service but allows your friends to add to your albums, not just view them. Albumatic may be a great alternative for those who want to collaborate on albums instead of just sharing and viewing.
There are lots of conversion apps for iPhone in the App Store that allow you to convert measurements such as currency, weight, distance, and more. The problem is that you couldn't always use a single app in order to convert what you need, when you need to. Amount for iPhone supports all kinds of conversions in one single app not only easily, but quite beautifully.
