Top 5 iOS Apps for 3rd week of August 2015

1. Pixcall
Offered up as an alternative to FaceTime or making a video call by any other means, Pixcall is a new app that lets groups of friends that are geographically separated take a group photo. And that sounds really awesomeEvery participant gets a notification timed at 30 minutes, 1 minute and then 10 seconds when the setting for the photo is chosen before the chosen time. During this point, everyone in the group’s camera will take a photo and create an overall collage. Each person can view and download the picture individually.Photos are however deleted from Pixcall servers after 24 hours so be careful.

2. AccuWeather AccUcast
AccuWeather’s new crowd sourced weather service AccUcast was earlier on described as a sort of ‘Wiz for weather alerts, and the reason for this was very good – you report your weather just like Wazers would report traffic jams to help others avoid them.Icons are used on the maps to show weather conditions and when you zoom out, the pins become a color-coded area to make the weather very easy to identify.You can also report the effects of weather too, like flooding, hailstones, thick snow or slippery roads, via the app.

3. TVibes
If you usually find yourself recording videos on your iPhone, then you’d probably find this app useful to be able to organize those videos into channels.While there are plenty of video sharing apps, this one’s charm lies in the fact that you have complete control of people who can see each bit of content. Not only does it let you choose your audience but also enables you to assign a level of access to your videos.If you so wish you could also make video clips public so that anyone on TVibes can view them if you don’t care much for their privacy or you just want anyone to see.It’s currently free to download, and there’s an Android version on the way too.

4. Beet
Want a Snapchat-stroke-Vine competitor? Then Beet is just that.In a nutshell, it allows users to take a six-second video that can then be shared as a ‘Story’Though you might be restricted to six seconds per clip, there is no limit to the number of clips you could create. There is a downside though, there are no video editing tools.

5. Scanner Pro 6
Yes this app also features in this week’s top 5. Let’s face it, a document scanning app does not sound very exciting – and you certainly don’t need it if you don’t have documents to scan – but finding one that works so well is worth calling to your attention.This is an update to Readdle’s scanning app which brings a re-edit mode for adjusting scans later, margin controls, spacing and the option to switch into black and white from color.It also seamlessly integrates with One Note and One Drive.This previously came at a promotional price of $2.99 for a while, but it’s now gone back up to the regular price of $6.99.
