Top 5 Apps to Check Out This Week: Whom, Camarada VR and More

February is here and, while there is six weeks of winter remaining, there are still some apps to keep you entertained until the winter weather comes to a close. From GIFs and games to 3D Videos and meditation, here is my apps recipe for this week.


Taking pictures on smartphones has become an integral part of everyday life. But with GIFs becoming more and more popular, people are looking for new ways to make memories last. That’s what Whom is all about: launch the app, take some pics, and it will automatically convert them into a GIF you can share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, iMessage, WhatsApp or Messenger. Download Whom from the App Store for free!

Camarada VR

For the friends with Android smartphones, this is definitely something you should try. Camarada VR can link more than three phones and stack them together to capture panoramic or 360 degree videos and create a 3D video with friends. Download Camarada VR from Google Play for free and watch the video below to learn more.

5 Minute Escapes

There are some moments in life when you need just a few minutes alone, maybe to recover, or just to have a break. The Apple Watch helps sometimes with its Breathe feature but 5 Minutes Escapes gives you more. It opens a world of peace and relaxation so you can refill your batteries and gather strength to be able to move forward. Just select your escape mediations, press play, and the audio will do the rest. Download 5 Minute Escapes from the App Store or Google Play for free!

Moana Island Life

An app roundup isn’t complete without games, so here is one you can have fun with this week. Moana Island Life, released by Disney, invites you to build your village with the help of Moana, Maui, Pua and Heihei. This app takes you on journey throughout Oceania to discover new islands and people, and take on Maui’s Challenges. Download Moana Island Life from the App Store or Google Play for free!

Evil Factory

To close this week’s app roundup, here’s another game: Evil Factory. This is a retro arcade game that invites users into a world where the super powers of the world created the International Alliance to defend against the evil Kraken group from taking over the world. Users turn into Leo, the hero of the game, who has the task of battling his way into the Kraken’s Antarctic laboratory to uncover their evil plan and stop their twisted creations. Does this sound appealing? Download Evil Factory now from the App Store/Google Play for free, and start your investigation!
