The official Dropbox app was developed by none other than superstar Rudy Huyn of 6tag, so you can expect a quality app.

Voicy: Voicy can convert your speech to text, with a large selection of languages available to choose from such as English, French, Arabic, or Vietnamese. The design is minimalistic and clean, making it easy to use right from the start – just choose your language, press the button, and start speaking. You can then choose a follow-up action such as copy, SMS, email, or even Wikipedia. Voicy is free to try out, but you’ll need to buy “recognitions” if you want to continue using it.

Strung Along: In the aptly-named Strung Along, you control a wooden puppet that needs to reach goal markers step-by-step, avoiding obstacles. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it’s not. The puppet staggers and stumbles, snaps his strings if your steps are too long, and will probably make you rage quit at least once. But Strung Along has the right balance of fun and frustrating, and chances are good you’ll enjoy it once you sharpen your skills. Challenging puzzles, beautiful visuals, and a creative idea make it worth playing.
