This by Tinrocket
A picture is worth a thousand words. but, sometimes, it could use a few more. How often have you wanted to add your thoughts to a snap before sharing it with pals, or point out a certain speck in a pic? With This by Tinrocket, you can now tell the whole story by adding pointers, labels, descriptions and commentary to your photos through seven different designs that suit your mood. Boasts a clean, fuss-free design (just the way we like it!) and is interactive and fun to use.


Mood Notes
How are you feeling? That's a question you can expect a lot with this app. Designed to capture your mood and improve your thinking habits through journalling, the app only requires a couple of minutes. You can swipe up or down to indicate your mood and answer a couple of quick questions about why you're feeling that way. It's based on cognitive behaviour therapy and positive psychology techniques, so don't think it's a waste of time!


Pause
A great one for if you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed. All you have to do is slowly and continuously move your fingertip across the screen, creating a sort of mesmerising blob, that can help you regain focus and release stress within minutes. You also have calming audiovisual feedback to help keep your attention in the present. Call it a healthy break, a way to catch your breath when you can't think straight. We're already feeling relieved knowing this is out there.


Hooked - Chat Stories
We can't decide whether this is creepy or cool, so we'll leave it up to you. Hooked is where you can read other people's chats - not to worry, they're all fictional. Presented as bite-sized text message conversations, you can create your own or pick a genre (yes, they've been helpfully classified) and read up on fun, snappy 'convos' between other folks. Sort of like the literary version of Snapchat. Are you hooked yet?
