On iOS, Do apps no longer have a three recipe limit, so you can add as many shortcuts as you want to the Do Button, Do Camera and Do Note apps. There’s also a new Snapchat-like feature for the Do camera app that allows you to preview your photo and add text to the image or apply filters before sending it.
There’s extended Apple Watch support for Do apps too, so you can now use the glance feature to quickly view and trigger recipes.
If you want to instill a good understanding of money and financial nous in your children, arguably one way to do that is through an app like PennyOwl.
The app, which launched this month for Android and iOS devices, uses age-appropriate content in a newsfeed-style layout to teach children about saving.
While parents retain control of how much money kids can spend and how much should be put aside, PennyOwl provides a level of autonomy by giving them a store from which to buy apps, toys and games. It also provides monetization for the otherwise free service.
The main agenda view takes a timeline approach, and while it doesn’t sync directly with your native iOS calendar app, all you need to do is connect up your iCloud, Exchange or Gmail accounts to pull in all your information.

Microsoft’s app for writing full-page stories on the Web, Sway, launched on iOS towards the end of last year, but it was only this month that an iPad version arrived to make use of the additional screen space.
In addition to being optimized for larger screens, the iPad app (and now iPhone too) has a simplfied workflow for adding video and text, and there are new views to let you preview a post before it goes live.
The idea is to get rid of the balls before they become too large to destroy (they turn into skulls if that happens) and between each wave of difficulty, balls left of the field get reinforced and change color, which is why it’s called Hue.
The app offers a simple way to overlay photos of your items for sale with a variety of professionally produced graphics and templates, for example.
A free version of the app has a watermark. If you want to remove it on an individual photo, it costs 99 cents. However, if you want to unlock the designs behind the paywall, there’s a $2 per month subscription fee.
If you are selling in volume, you may want to consider an annual subscription at $24 per year.
