It's Friday (Friday, gotta get down on NEVER MIND), and your iPhone has been the social safety blanket that's saved you from another week of actually talking to the people around you. Reward that glowing little rectangle with some shiny new apps!
Slack: Aims to simplify three main things: messaging, file sharing, and the ever-present universal search feature. The app carries all the alerts and notifications you're used to, as well as the convenience of syncing all your devices anytime you make a change. The main difference is how you interact with your coworkers within slack. You can share, serve, star, and comment on pretty much anything that makes its way through your inbox (images, PDF files, lines of text, Google documents, etc.). And all this gets totally indexed, so you can find pretty much everything you could possibly want to look through in one place—a true universal search, if you will. [Free]
MedSnap: Identifies your pills and their potential interactions all through one simple snapped photograph. Simply place your various pill doses on the accompanying surface platform, line it up and snap a photo within the app, and the device will work with the app to scan your medications and give you all the info you need to know: which medications are present, how to take them, and the potential interactions you might be faced with. [$20 platform, $70 annually]
Notability: Newly-updated Notability now lets you write, annotate, doodle and organize documents on all your iOS devices. With import capabilities for a bunch of different file types and a handy palm rest that prevents you from making errant marks with your big burly hand, you can mess around with your documents without messing up your documents.
