by Phil Hornshaw

Get the most out of your phone calls with Twiize, which allows users to check Facebook and even draw on photos while talking. Quietto is up next, and gives you a discreet timer for situations like when you’re giving presentations. Finally, there’s Cordy 2, the follow-up to the great side-scrolling platformer that brings new mechanics to the formula.

Twiize update (Free)

What’s it about? Twiize allows you to make calling your friends more fun, allowing you to view photos, interact with Facebook, send drawings and notes, and more, all while you’re on a call.

What’s cool? Hop on a call with Twiize and you can use your smartphone to do other things while you’re also talking. The app lets you send photos and even draw on them along with your counterpart on the other end of the line, and you can also check things like recent Facebook feeds and send birthday cards, when applicable. Twiize makes it possible to do all the things it offers both with a friend as you talk and alone, so you don’t have to involve anyone else if you don’t want to.

Who’s it for? Anybody who likes to stay active while on a call will find Twiize useful.

What’s it like? You’ll also want to check out call apps such as Tango and Paltalk.

Quietto ($0.99)

What’s it about? Keep track of time increments discreetly with Quietto, which can help you with things like giving presentations by helping you stay on task and moving forward.

What’s cool? Quietto is a timer app, but rather than making loud noises and tripping alarms to notify you when a time increment has passed, it’s a lot more discreet. It either buzzes gently or signals with a discreet visual sign. The idea is that you can take Quietto with you into a presentation and use it to time how long you’re taking so you can keep on track, without having to watch a clock or risk a noisy alarm.

Who’s it for? Anyone who might need a timer to stay on task, and who also doesn’t want a noisy alarm to go with it, should check out Quietto.

What’s it like? You can also get timer help with StopWatch & Timer and UltraChron Stopwatch.

Cordy 2 (Free)

What’s it about? The follow-up to the gorgeous side-scroller Cordy sends players back into the franchise’s inventive levels to find components and discover secrets.

What’s cool? The original Cordy included some great side-scrolling platforming levels for players to work through, and Cordy 2 starts off with more of the same formula. It expands on the idea greatly by adding additional robot friends for Cordy to help best various puzzles and explore levels, and adding new mechanics and enemies for players to deal with. It’s also possible to customize Cordy by earning different cosmetic items. The game comes with its first four levels for free and 48 in total available through in-app purchase.

Who’s it for? Platforming fans, you’ll want to give Cordy 2 some of your attention.

What’s it like? Definitely try the original Cordy, a solid entry into the platforming genre, as well as League of Evil for more great level design and controls.
