It's the end of summer and a holiday weekend, and apparently all the app makers are on vacation. As a result, we've only got a small haul of new apps this week. But maybe they're enough to help distract you from the annoying guests at your Labor Day cookout.

There are plenty of translation apps out there, but SpeechTrans has something particularly neat in-app purchase: Interprephone, where the app performs real-time translation on your phone calls. The app also translates via typed input, microphone, or photograph, and has a bunch of handy features to help you keep track of currency, flights, and more while you travel. [Free]


iOS

Acorns

You don't need a fat stack of cash to start investing. Acorns rounds your individual transactions to the nearest dollar, investing the spare change in a diversified portfolio you can track from within the app. Downloading Acorns is free, but the app charges $1 a month plus 0.25-0.5% of your Acorn assets annually. Still, that's a hell of a lot cheaper than a stock broker, and it doesn't involve much more than the spending you already do. [Free]


Windows Phone

NFL Now
