From the coolest messaging hack to your new favorite photo filter, check out this week’s can’t-miss apps.
Willow: Fall is here, cuffing season is in the air and this particular pairing app has been causing quite a stir. Willow wants to be Tinder for people who are over Tinder (isn’t everyone over Tinder?) by making the experience more about your personality than a handful of pictures. You create a profile and then ask up to three questions for others to answer. Qs are tagged so you can find and answer other Qs that might lead you to the love of your life. Or you’ll just have fun answering Qs like an old fwded email quiz… Free on iOS
Darkroom: Another buzzy download to tap its way into the App Store this week just might be vying for iPhone photo filter favorite VSCO cam’s top spot. Darkroom is a photo editing app for iOS that opens up your entire camera roll (no import necessary) to edit in a Photoshop lite-like suite where you can DIY your own filters and strike the perfect tones for your pics with their handy Curves tool. Sharing photos on white backgrounds directly to Instagram is an NBD little bonus that could help streamline the photo apps on your phone. Free on iOS + $2.99 add-on for “Curves”
Metamorphabet: From dating apps to kiddy apps, we’re really going full circle for today’s What’s App-ening. This educational app is just about the coolest way to teach your little ones the ABCs — we’re actually considering just like, taking a quick afternoon to brush up on ours. Here, letters transform into different words that help explain and explore the alphabet with dazzling illustrations – $3.99 on iOS
Chic Sketch: Confession — NYFW wasn’t quite the big deal this month, since it’s become more influenced by street style influencers than ever before, this is the perfect #OOTD-obsessed bloggers everywhere. It lets you upload pics and submits them to be sketched by a fashion illustrator. How insanely awesome is that?! Free on Android and iOS
