Each Friday, we uncover titles you might have missed in Apple’s digital store. This week’s list features a returning television series, a time-traveling adventure film, and more.
Hour – A beautiful clock with time-based gradients, iPhone
Do you dock your iPhone throughout the day? Hour is for you. The $0.99 clock app features gradients that reflect the time of day. Hour also includes inspirational quotes that change on a daily basis.
“The Fall,” TV series
The second season of the BBC crime drama, “The Fall,” is finally available to stream on Netflix. The series stars Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”) as Superintendent Stella Gibson and Jamie Dornan (“Fifty Shades of Grey”) as the serial killer she is trying to capture. The second season only includes six episodes, which is a perfect number for weekend binging.
Shadowmatic, $2.99, Universal game
This “imagination-stirring” puzzle game includes 70 levels across nine unique environments, secondary objectives, nonlinear level progression, and 3-D parallax view. The object is to find recognizable silhouettes in projected shadows, which are relevant to the surrounding environment.
“Her” by Harriet Lane
Like the recently released “The Girl on the Train,” “Her” features a woman in distress. In this case, two women.
From the iBook Store:
You don’t remember her–but she remembers you.
Two different women; two different worlds. On the face of it, Emma and Nina have very little in common. Isolated and exhausted by early motherhood, Emma finds her confidence is fading fast. Nina is sophisticated and assured, a successful artist who seems to have it all under control. And yet, when the two women meet, they are irresistibly drawn to each other. As the friendship develops, as Emma gratefully invites Nina into her life, it emerges that someone is playing games-and the stakes could not be higher.
What, exactly, does Nina see in Emma? What does she want? And how far will she go in pursuit of it?
PRY, $2.99, Universal
Pry features a fragmented narrative that will be told in two parts. It features First Gulf War veteran James, whose vision fails, causing his past to collide with his present. The $2.99 app is described as an “iPad-based reading experience in the form of a book to watch and a film to touch.”
Sounds delightfully creepy, no?
Now available in theaters and through streaming, “Predestination” stars Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke (“Boyhood”) as a temporal agent who must time-travel to different worlds to catch a criminal. The film is based on Robert A. Heinlein’s short story “All You Zombies.”
