The best apps of week 32-2020 in App Gemist

In the weekly section App Missed you can read which apps from the past week are worthwhile. We always discuss about five apps for iPhone, iPad in Mac. These could be apps you might not have known about or that are useful or just funny to try. And that can also be old-timers who have received a major update and therefore receive some extra attention.

Discussed earlier this week on iCulture:

iCulture App of the Week: Eyeye

One of the things you rarely hear is that your eyes also need to stay healthy. That doesn’t have to be difficult, according to the makers of Eyeye. This app lets you do short-term exercises with your eyes. To measure what your eyes are doing, Eyeye uses the TrueDepthcamera of yours iPhone. Only iPhones met Face ID facial recognition work with the app.

You can get a daily reminder to train your eyes. It only takes a minute. The free exercise lets you look in 8 directions, but additional exercises are available for a small price. For example, you have to keep staring at a red dot and keep your phone further and further away from you.

Tradfri Lux

The makers of Tradfri Lux claim that this app exceeds the official IKEA Tradfri app in functionality. You can, as the name suggests, operate your Tradfri lamps, but without IKEA’s restrictions. For example, you can choose all colors from a color wheel instead of 20 pre-selected colors. You also have the option to check the battery status of accessories, such as your motion sensor or shutters. The big plus of Tradfri Lux is that many controls can be found on the main menu. You do not have to search in the app.
