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/iOS: Regardless of whether you love or hate Reddit, it’s always been a bit odd that the site didn’t have an official app. Now, it does.
Giphy, one of our favourite GIF search engines, launched a new tool for Mac users today that lets you make a GIF of anything that’s happening on your desktop.
Windows/Mac: Sony’s updated the firmware on the Playstation 4 and alongside a slew of minor features, it’s also getting Remote Play, which allows you to stream your PS4 games to your Windows or Mac computer.
Need to create a logo, website mockup, or any kind of digital illustration? You don’t need to buy or download software to do so. Gravit is a robust illustration tool that works in your browser.
Android: Eat This Much, the previously mentioned meal planning app that automatically generates menus and shopping lists for you, used to be iOS only. Now it’s available for Android too, and it’s brought some useful new features along for the ride.
Windows: In OS X, you can select a file and press Space for a quick preview of it. You can’t do that in Windows — at least not without Seer, a free utility that gives you the same power. Tap the space bar to bring up an image, video, or audio file in a quick view, and press space again to dismiss.
Android/iOS: Outlook, our favourite email app on iOS, was updated today with a handy new feature that will integrate your Facebook, Wunderlist, and Evernote calendars into the app.
WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, has rolled out encrypted messages for its entire service. The encryption now protects texts, voice calls video, and chat rooms.
Chrome: If you keep lots of tabs open in your browser window, it can be a minor pain to find one when you need it. Tab Organiser is a Chrome extension that helps you maintain them a little better.
iOS/Android: National parks are a wonderful way to experience the outdoors, but knowing all the options available in each park takes a lot of research. Chimani lets you pick a park and shows you the activities, amenities, and points of interest all in one place to make the most of your trip.
