New iOS Apps
IGTV is Instagram’s answer to YouTube. It allows brands and content makers to create video channels for their audiences. Just like on YouTube, the video quality is superb with 4K support. However, right now IGTV only supports vertical videos.
Bottled is a social network of sorts where users can ‘send’ messages in bottles anywhere on Earth. The message may consist of text only or have a picture, and the first recipient may keep it if he likes it or throw it back in the sea, so your creative skills are a virtue here. You can also invite people to chat if you really liked their bottled message.
This simple app can add flavor animated text on your photos or videos, and this can be used in a variety of ways. For example, you can make a creative intro for your vlog or make a colourful poster.
Table Tennis AR
As you may have guessed from the app’s name, this is an AR game of table tennis. It has multiple mods: Augmented Reality (enables AR table for your match), Simple (your phone becomes the racket), Multiplayer (allows to connect to a nearby player for a multiplayer match), and other. Although this app isn’t new, we added it to our list because it joined the Free App group this June.
New Android Apps

The app is free for the first 21 day trial period, then you’d need to pay if you want to continue using it.
Ottipo Photo Editor
Ottipo is a small photo editor that is super helpful for Instagram users. The app comes with an arsenal of filters, stickers and frames, with which you can transform your photos into work of art. Localization for 15 languages is a huge bonus.
Branch is a Korean app that helps make your own stories as comics. The comic making process is simple: first, you choose the comic style, and then you make individual cards and connect them in the end. The lack of localization is a downside: right now, the app supports only Korean and English.
