Top 5 Apps to Check Out This Week: Cupid, Burstkey, and More

What’s better than a weekend full of re-energizing events? Sharing those moments, of course! Since the major social media platforms are a given, I was thinking about pointing you toward a few apps that could help you add some magic to those photos, or maybe you would like to share those memories with your future date? So, without further ado, here is my app recipe for this week.


With more than 8 million registered users, Cupid brings real feelings into lives of hundreds of singles every day. Now, you can be one of the thousands who join this network to meet their other half. Although registration is free, Cupid will charge you for access to some features, but you decide whether it is worth it or not. You can download Cupid from the App Store or Google Play for free.



Apple’s Live Photos feature may have brought some novelty to how we take pictures now, but you know a good GIF is always fun. That’s where Burstkey can help you. Take a burst of photos and convert them into GIFs in an instant, and then share them via social media, email, or iMessage. Download Burstkey for free from the App Store.



If you would like to add a retro feeling to your pictures taken with the iPhone, BitCam could be one of the apps you should try. It’s stuck in the black and white era and is pixelated, but I love this effect. Imagine that your iPhone is the digital camera you would have used on your mini pocket computer back in 1996. Capture that special moment with a special effect: try BitCam. Download it for free from the App Store.


Sharply – Brain Training

Everybody wants to keep their brain fresh, so Sharply builds exactly on that thought: It can become your own personal brain trainer, helping you exercise and challenging your key abilities such as memory, focus, problem solving, and more. It’s a game I like to play because it’s fun and personalized. Download Sharply from the App Store for free.


App of Joe

Coffee lovers beware! App of Joe is addictive! Using this app, you can get a coffee at your favorite coffee ship for only $1 and a fancy drink such as Latte, Machiato, Cappuccino, and other drinks for $2. Larger sizes, extra shots, extra flavors may cost you an extra $0.5, but you know, ordering the coffee within the app and skipping the line just feels good. Download App of Joe from the App Store / Google Play for free.
