Fantasy sports! Fantastic photography! A radio fantasia! All of these and more, in this week's best iPhone apps.
Yahoo Fantasy Sports: If you're already a fantasy sports fan, chances are you've used Yahoo's Fantasy Sports app before. The most notable change is the ability to take care of Draft Day entirely on your phone. You'll be able to make mock rosters in preparation for the actual day as well as pick players, set up your queue, check results, and talk to other players all throughout. And just as before, you'll still be able to follow your team with live scoring, manage your roster, get notifications for news alerts, chat on message boards, etc. [Free]
Loom: Loom is a better way to take photos that gives you the benefits of the cloud without any of the complications. It streamlines and syncs photos from all of your devices into one, single photo stream. You'll be able to access all of your original photos from any of your devices in the cloud, and your photos are even compressed for viewing on your iPhone and iPad. Since there's no real reason you'd ever need the original just to view it on your device, about 95% of storage that would otherwise unnecessarily be taken up gets freed to use at your leisure. [Free, $40/year for 50GB, $100/year for 250GB]
iHeartRadio Talk: Talk radio over iHeartRadio. It launches today, giving you access to 50,000 "audiosodes" of talk radio including Good Morning America, TED Talks, and Ryan Seacrest. If that's not a silent majority selection, I don't know what is. In once nice touch, you'll be able to curate your own Daily Pulse station, that'll automatically play you popular daily selections from the stuff you like—so, like, a personal radio station of talk radio. [Free]
Isometric: iOS has filters and drawing apps up the wazoo, so it can be hard to see the point of new ones. But Isometric allows you to create and manipulate designs and optical illusions that are weirdly compelling. It's something about starting from a blank screen and building such a dimensional pattern. To make geometric art in Isometric you manipulate and color 60-degree rhombuses. You can save your work as .pngs or share it to Instagram. And Made With Isometric is a Tumblr where the developers share the stuff they've made. The app is $2 and is compatible with iPhone and iPad. [$2]
