2. TechPP’s Game of the Week: Hue Ball
Hue Ball is a a minimal paintball style shooter game.
3. BuzzFeed News
Yup, we’re talking about BuzzFeed. From the makers of “17 GIFs of cats doing cat things you wouldn’t believe cats could do” – Sponsored by Cat Services, comes a compelling app about journalism and breaking news. BuzzFeed News app comes from the serious journalism arm that’s hell bent on reporting news and doing it well. They’d probably also love if we’d stop comparing them to “Lol cats” writers but I don’t think this is going to happen any time soon.
4. Dark Sky 5
Dark Sky 5 ($3.99) is a new update to the already popular weather app. Dark Sky is known for its uncanny ability to predict the weather, down to the minutes sometimes. The update brings a new interface, better support for newer iPhones, advanced notifications and more.

I know what you were wishing for. Another Periscope/Meerkat clone. Ok not really, but still, here we are. Yeplive a live streaming that lets you filter streams by location.
Leaf.fm is yet another YouTube music streaming app wrapped around is someone else’s branding. But there’s one upside, the app does let you stream songs in the background. Which means you can now kind of, sort of use YouTube as a music streaming service on your iPhone. You know, like you already do on your office computer.
