Every day dozens and dozens of new and updated apps and games hit the iOS and Mac App Stores. It's impossible to keep up with them all, but it's not impossible to pick out the very best. Today we've got updates that have floated out over the weekend and today to Glassboard, Pumatrac, a new UK racing driver coaching app and more! Let's take a look!
New and updated iOS apps
- Twitterrific 5: The grand-daddy of all Twitter clients hits version 5.6.1 and gains streaming searches and conversations over Wi-Fi, customizable tabs, a new tweet counter, and more. $0.99 - Download now
- Unread: The elegant RSS reader goes to version 1.1 and adds the ability to hide read items, open folders as a feed list or article list, font size options, and more. $4.99 - Download now
- Pumatrac: Updated to version 2.0 that now includes support for Spotify music, an indoor treadmill mode and a bunch of social stuff. Still a fantastic free exercise app! Free - Download now
- Glassboard: Now able to open in Chrome in activity sheets plus a bunch of changes and fixes. Free - Download now
- Race Coach: Giving a special shout out to this mainly because of who is behind it. For a weekly subscription of £7.50 (way cheaper than paying someone to coach you at the circuit) a successful British Racing driver has provided video walkthroughs of how best to attack some of the UK's best race circuits. An interesting idea and a new approach that I'm looking forward to trying out. The interface isn't the greatest, but the content could be invaluable. Free (with subscriptions) - Download now
