Best new and updated apps
This week, clean the clutter out of your photo library with Gemini Photos, use Hole19 to improve your golf game, and check out Views for a new take on the news powered by artificial intelligence.
Gemini Photos - Developed by MacPaw and based on the same principles as its Gemini Mac app, Gemini Photos focuses on helping you find and weed out photos that look too similar. Say, for instance, that you took a massive set of similar-looking photos to get a single perfect shot. Instead of having to manually sort through that collection yourself, you open up Gemini Photos, and using machine learning, the app will pick out what it thinks is the single best image of the lot, then mark the other similar photos for deletion. The app will always let you review the photos so you don't delete something you wanted to keep by mistake. Gemini will also look for photos that might be cluttering up your library like screenshots, blurry photos, and notes. Gemini Photos is free to download, but if you want unlimited access you'll need to pay either $1.99 per month or $11.99 per year if you want to go the subscription route, while a one-time purchase of $14.99 is also available.
