Instead of Buying Bitcoin, Play This Bitcoin Trading Game Instead of Buying Bitcoin, Play This Bitcoin Trading Game

I’ve lost over $300,000 worth of bitcoin so far. Now’s the bit where I’m supposed to tell you it’s all fake, and I only lost it in the cryptocurrency trading simulation game Bitcoin Flip. But no, I actually bought $400 worth of bitcoin back when it was cheap, then left it in the hands of the Mt. Gox online exchange,…

Read PDFs on Your Phone With GoodReader Read PDFs on Your Phone With GoodReader

iOS: If Hell exists, I will spend eternity being forced to read PDFs on my phone. I’ll be pinching and zooming some D&D playbook or work document, struggling to fit the whole page on the screen while making the text big enough to read, then doing the whole thing again on the next page. And I won’t have GoodReader, the…

Move Your Streaming Music Between Spotify, Apple, and Google With SongShift and STAMP Move Your Streaming Music Between Spotify, Apple, and Google With SongShift and STAMP

iOS/Android: Spotify works great for music sharing and third-party plugins. Apple Music works great for offline play. So I juggle both. It feels a bit like shared custody, but it’s a lot easier thanks to the mobile apps SongShift and Stamp, which efficiently move playlists from one service to the other.

How to Make a Podcast on Your Phone How to Make a Podcast on Your Phone

Podcasting should be stupid easy. The underlying technology isn’t much more complicated than blogging. But so far, there’s no Blogger or Tumblr of podcasting, to make podcast recording accessible to anyone with a phone. Until yesterday’s release of Anchor 3.0 for iOS and Android.

Use These Apps to Get Immediate Help for the Homeless Use These Apps to Get Immediate Help for the Homeless

“Apps for homeless people” might sound a bit weird. But cheap smartphones, outreach programs, and youth homelessness mean that many people have a phone but no home. (As of 2011, almost two thirds of homeless youth owned a cell phone.) And in several cities, they can use mobile apps to find food, shelter, and other…

Search Faster With This New Mobile Browser Search Faster With This New Mobile Browser

iOS/Android: I hate mobile browsing. When I open Safari, I’m usually trying to google something quickly, then go back to my other apps. Lately I’ve been trying the mobile browser Cake, publicly released for iOS and Android today, and it’s made searching much faster.

HotStepper App Makes Walking Directions Fun

iOS: I still think augmented-reality goggles are the future. Yes, Google Glass was creepy and off-putting, and yes, Snapchat Spectacles tanked, but as I crick my neck after a morning commute spent staring down at my phone, I feel nostalgic for the promise of a heads-up display that replaces my phone’s most mundane…

Grammarly's iPhone Keyboard Corrects Your Texts and Tinder Messages Grammarly's iPhone Keyboard Corrects Your Texts and Tinder Messages

For the past few years, I’ve been using Grammarly. The service corrects your spelling and grammar on the fly, and the Chrome extension is great for helping me catch tiny typos and misplaced commas in emails, or even posts on Lifehacker I’m adding to our CMS. Now Grammarly has extended to one more place: your iPhone.

How Apps Use Your Photos to Track Your Location How Apps Use Your Photos to Track Your Location

If you’re worried about apps tracking your location, it’s not enough to limit your location sharing. You need to limit camera-roll sharing too. If you’ve ever given an app access to your camera roll—to take photos, or store screenshots, or any given reason—you’ve also let it see where all those photos were taken.…

Boomerang, the email add-on that lets you control when to send email, is now a free full-featured email app on iOS. We’ve included the Android version in our Android download pack for years, and the app started in 2010 as a Gmail add-on, so this has been a long time coming. The iOS version is in beta, according to a…

Calm Down With These Stress-Free, Non-Violent Video Games Calm Down With These Stress-Free, Non-Violent Video Games

Inspired by games from the 2016 Self-Care Jam (which Kotaku mined for favorites), MetaFilter users recently named their favorite calming video games. Some will be familiar, but others are deep cuts by independent developers. Most aren’t for winning or losing, just exploring, interacting, and existing. None of them…

Replace News Notifications With Nuzzel Replace News Notifications With Nuzzel

If you get breaking-news notifications on your phone, you’ll often find you disagree with CNN, the New York Times, or Apple about what constitutes news. Instead, you can turn use news aggregation app Nuzzel, which can notify you when a certain number of your Twitter friends link to the same URL, no matter the source.

You might not want to upgrade to iOS 11 just yet, but you should update these top-shelf iOS apps.

Shazam for Birds: Three Apps That Recognize Bird Calls Shazam for Birds: Three Apps That Recognize Bird Calls

“Shazam for bird calls” is a compelling sales pitch, and a difficult technical proposition. It’s much harder for an algorithm to identify animal sounds, in all their wild pied beauty, than to recognize a specific recording of a pop song. Impressively, though, several apps really can identify a bird by its song, with a…

iTunes Keeps Auto-Playing? Download This Blank Song iTunes Keeps Auto-Playing? Download This Blank Song

iTunes users all know the aggravating feeling every time you plug your phone into your car, or idly hit play: The first song in your library comes on, feeling less like music and more like an alarm clock, and you rush to turn it back off. And then you never again want to play Adele or Abbey Road or “Ain’t No…

Swarm's New Update Works Great Without Friends Swarm's New Update Works Great Without Friends

Foursquare’s Swarm 5.0, released yesterday on iOS and coming soon to Android, has a cleaner look and better venue categorization. Most importantly, it downplays most of the social check-in app’s social elements and strengthens its solo benefits. That’s great news, because Swarm might be more useful if you use it alone.

iOS: Microsoft Kills Word Flow Keyboard—Here's What to Replace It With iOS: Microsoft Kills Word Flow Keyboard—Here's What to Replace It With

When you installed Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard on your iPhone, you probably thought it was an app or extension. Turns out, it was an “experiment,” an experiment that is now “complete,” and you need to switch to a new keyboard.
