Airmail ($5) — Following closely on the heels of its latest Airmail for Mac update, Bloop has released the first iPhone version of its popular email client. The iPhone version includes most of the great features and design from the Mac version, and you can even sync your email accounts and other settings from your Mac to get you up and going quickly. You also get full support for 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, an easy snooze feature, interactive notifications, and the ability to customize actions and the appearance of the app. Airmail for iPhone also offers integration with a wealth of other third-party iOS apps, allowing you to send email messages and links to Calendars, Reminders, OmniFocus, Evernote, Pocket, Asana, Google Tasks, Wanderlust, Fantastical, Things, Deliveries, Appigo ToDo, The Hitlist, and a whole lot more. Apple Watch support is also included in the iPhone app, and an iPad version is also on the way.

Day One 2 ($5) — Bloom has taken its popular journalling app and rebuilt it from the ground up as version 2.0. The new version eschews Dropbox and iCloud support in favor of the company’s own cloud-based sync service, bringing with it support for multiple journals and multiple photos in each journal entry. The new version also includes a new map view, and improved entry management, allowing you to select, move, tag, and delete multiple entries at once, along with timeline filters, timezone support, and 3D Touch support. The company also notes that it’s already working on private-key encryption for version 2.1 to provide even better security.
Airfoil Satellite (free) — Rogue Amoeba, best known for its Airfoil audio capture and streaming app for the Mac, has released Airfoil Satellite, a completely redesigned version of its controversial Airfoil Speakers Touch app, which ran afoul of Apple’s reviewers for including AirPlay support. While the earlier app did eventually find its way back onto the App Store, updates beyond that were few, and it began to look dated on modern iOS devices. Airfoil Satellite brings the concept back to life, offering the ability to work with Airfoil on your Mac or Windows PC to stream any audio out to your iOS devices. Rogue Amoeba also notes that the new version lays the groundwork for integrating remote control for Airfoil as well, which will be supported in the next major update to Airfoil, expected to arrive in the next few weeks.

Instagram (free) — The popular social photo sharing app adds improved support for 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and similarly improved interactions on other iPhone models, adding the ability to tap and hold 3D Touch to expand posts in Search & Explore or profile views, use 3D Touch on a profile or hashtag to see a preview of recent posts, with additional options available, and to access shortcuts from the iPhone home screen via 3D Touch.

Pocket (free) — The latest update to the read-it-later app adds some great new customizations for Pocket Premium subscribers, including an automatic dark mode that switches reading themes based on location and ambient light, as well as the ability to choose from seven new reading fonts and adjust margins and light-height spacing. The update also adds a new font option for all users, Dyslexie, which is designed to make reading more pleasurable for people with dyslexia.
