Every week, we share a number of downloads for all platforms to help you get things done. Here were the top downloads from last week.
Android/iPhone: Sometimes, the best way to discover new music is to dig in at random. Case in point, Playlist a Day is an app that will send you one themed playlist, every day, so you can find new stuff to listen to.
Mac: Sick of using those boring, static images as your wallpaper. If you want to spice things up a bit, the GIFPaper app can set any GIF as a wallpaper.
iOS: Airmail has long been our favourite email app in the uncluttered market of Mac apps, and today it arrives on the iPhone where it's up against much stiffer competition. While it doesn't have one trick that separates it from the others, it does let you do just about whatever the heck you want with it.
Android/Android Wear: Talkey analyses your incoming text messages and intelligently generates plain-language responses appropriate for the message. It's ideal for when you're busy and don't have time to type a long message, and it even works with a tap from your Android smartwatch, if you have one.
Airdroid is one of our favourite ways to control your Android phone remotely. Now, in a new update, you can use your computer's keyboard to type on your phone, and even share clipboard access.
We're fans of the Toshiba FlashAir Wi-FI SD card because it's cheap and does its job well enough, but it's still lacking some features. Lifehacker reader Chris points out that you can actually add in some functionality with third-party apps.
Have a Windows touchscreen laptop or tablet and want to control it more with taps and swipes? Here's a "slide to shutdown" shortcut for you.
If you do a lot of public speaking or presentations in front of people, Zoho Showtime could make your life (and job) easier. Showtime makes it easy to take questions from your audience, let them save slides or go back to see previous ones, and you can control the presentation from your phone.
Your phone is likely the centrepiece of your digital photo collection, so you may as well have the best photo manager. With its tagging system, easy-to-browse interface, and handy privacy features, Focus is our go-to pick.
