Apps of the Week: Star Trek Into Darkness, Album Share and More

Album Share for iPhone

Album Share for iPhone

Album Share is a useful little app when used in just the right situations. It’s not an overly complicated one, either – you take a bunch of photos, stuff them in an album, and share it. As the name probably already told you, the app specializes in that last part. Once you’ve made your album, you can add people on your contact list, and the app will share the album by sending out a Web link via SMS.

If you want to share photos with friends in the absolute fastest way possible, it’s hard to beat Album Share. You can get it for free now from the iTunes App Store.

The Wallpaper*HTC Global Design Tours app takes a look at all the best exhibits and installations of modern design across the world, and it just so happens that the newest location is in New York City.

The International Contemporary Furniture Festival is dropping by New York next week, bringing with it furniture to get excited about – no, really. The app will feature some of the highlights from the show, along with some lesser known exemplars of design around New York City, like Pilgrim Surf Supply in Brooklyn and the view from Four Freedom Park.

The selections are curated by a trio of designers and editors, who also supplied matching music for the locales and designs featured. You can get a taste of the New York that you maybe don’t always see with Wallpaper*HTC Global Design Tours, which you can get now for free from Google Play. The app also features Salone del Mobile in Milan and Art Basel in Hong Kong.

Star Trek Into Darkness is already out in the wild, but that doesn’t mean it can’t live long and prosper (for a kind of a little while) in app form.

Like any good summer blockbuster these days, Star Trek Into Darkness has its own companion app, simply called Star Trek App. In addition to the standard articles, videos, and trailers pertaining to the movie, there are Star Trek trivia questions that reach way back into the history of the series, as well as polls about the new movie. Last but definitely not least, there are monthly sweepstakes held, with sweet Star Trek swag and memorabilia headed off to deserving shelves everywhere.

The Star Trek App is available now for free on the Windows Phone Store.
