Post-it Plus (free) — This is a clever little app developed directly by 3M, maker of the iconic Post-it notes, designed to take your Post-its into the digital realm. With this app you can simply take a snapshot of a board filled with up to 50 Post-it notes and then individually rearrange and organize them in any way — you can group them into categories, or even combine notes from multiple sessions. The organized board can be shared with other users on your team who can work with the notes collaboratively, or you can export your board to apps such as Powerpoint, Excel, Dropbox, or PDF.
FitPort ($2) — If you’ve spent any time in the iOS 8 HealthKit app, you’ve probably discovered that while it’s a nice way to collect your health and fitness information in one place, it doesn’t offer a lot of flexibility for displaying that info. FitPort is a new app that aims to fill in some of those gaps by providing a “fitness dashboard” that will give you a straightforward and beautifully presented overview of your stats, taken right from the iOS Health app and iPhone sensors. Categories of information include steps, walking and running distance, cycling distance, calories, weight, and more, and iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users can even see data on flights of stairs climbed courtesy of the new barometric pressure sensor.
WW2: Sandbox. Strategy & Tactics ($10) — A sequel to HeroCraft’s prior Strategy & Tactics: World War II, this new game abandons the historical restrictions of its predecessor to allow much more open-ended play. Users can take command of any European army in a World War II environment and choose to simply abandon the politics of the era to create whatever alliances and scenarios they wish, such as allying Great Britain with the USSR or leading America to conquer Europe. The game features 16 playable countries with an accurate map of Europe which includes over 500 regions.
Beatbuddy HD ($5) — The popular action-adventure PC game comes to iOS with its unique blend of stunning hand-drawn graphics and immersive soundtracks. Players solve puzzles to defeat enemies across six surrealistic worlds that are enriched and shaped by the game’s music. As Beatbuddy, you must travel past music-inspired creatures and obstacles as you quest to save Symphonia from those who are trying to steal its music.
Fruit Ninja ($1) — The venerable slicing game gets a major update in version 2.0 with a heap of new content and a completely redesigned menu system. Blades and dojos now do more than just look pretty, but now gain unique powers that can be unlocked as users progress through the game, adding new twists. With this also comes a new levelling system allowing users to gain experience points and unlock additional blades, dojos and powers in a more progressive manner. The game also adds a new fantasy world of Fruitasia, with a collection of characters to help you along and guide you through the action.
Transit (free) — The popular public transportation planning app gets updated for iOS 8 in version 3.2 with a new Today screen widget that can automatically show your nearest three public transit lines with the arrival times of the next two buses or trains where available. Support is also added for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and London and Berlin in Europe. Bike sharing networks in a collection of new U.S. cities have also been added.
Fragment (free) — The revolutionary photo effects app allows users to transform images into cool and unique prismatic art forms with a wide array of shapes, patterns, and frames applied in real-time. The app now gets an iOS 8 update with support for resuming edits between multiple iOS 8 devices using Handoff, an “inspiration” widget for the Today screen, and extensions for the iOS 8 Photos app.
Apple Store (free) — Apple’s Apple Store app also gets a minor update for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in version 3.0.1, as well as improvements to iOS 8 compatibility.
