WHILE LOOKING THROUGH listings of best apps and games of 2019, I discovered I'm running a few of the top-rated items worthy of editors' choices and winners of peoples' choice awards as well.
Best iPhone Game
Sky: The Children of the Light from thatgamecompany (screenshot above). Pro Tips: Sound is more than half of the experience. Kids using this app need to know how to read.
Best iPhone App
AI-powered Spectre camera (makes your camera app much smarter than you). Sprectre Camera enhances the useful life of our iPhone 8. I'll add images snapped by Spectre Camera to my iPhone album on Flickr (above).
Best iPad App
Flow by Moleskine incorporates all the 2019 design language you'd expect from the best app for iPad in 2019. It also introduced a First World Problem for us--we need the Apple Pencil to enjoy Flow's best effects. And long-time readers will know I'm a full-on hands-on Moleskine user.
Best Android apps
Ablo but we're not using Ablo. Instead, the family plans to continue with Marco Polo and limit global conversations to family living five to eight time zones away.
Best Android Game
Call of Duty: Mobile is one of the apps we will dive into during an upcoming module I teach to Game Art Designers. And why not? Call of Duty is the iconic first-person shooter all game art advocates need to explore.
