These are the best iPhone apps, updates, and games from the past week.
TikTok released two features to combat cyberbullying last week, including a ‘bullying filter’. It checks new comments on videos for potentially hurtful words, insults, or other unkind content. Before the comment is posted, TikTok asks if you really want to post this comment.
Furthermore, the immensely popular app has added an option that allows movie makers to determine which reactions appear under their videos. Once this option is enabled, only comments that have been approved by the creator will appear.

Have you gained weight in the past year? You’re not the only one. Coronakilos has become a household name: many people have started eating more robustly last year, for example against stress. It does not help that gyms remained largely closed.
Fastival tries to get you back on the right track. The app teaches its users everything about intermettent fasting, or intermittent fasting. Here you eat what you would normally eat, but in a shorter time frame. For example, many fasters choose not to eat for 18 hours a day and 6 hours a day. For example, you can use intermittent fasting to lose weight.

Multifly proves that math is anything but boring. The game is aimed at children and explains everything about addition, subtraction and multiplication in a fun way. Multifly is very visual and explains concepts directly. For example, if you throw an “x 10” on an object, the object grows ten times.
Central to the game is Logik, a kind of alien who wants to return to the world where he came from. You have to help him with that by solving mathematical puzzles. There are more than 50 levels in Multifly and although the game is in English, children can pick up the concepts.

Since iOS 14, you can place widgets on the home screen of your iPhone. Unfortunately, not all widgets are equally good yet. For example, the default music widget cannot let you know which song you are currently playing. WidgetPod solves this problem.
This widget app works with Apple Music and Spotify and shows what you are currently listening to. You can also rewind or fast forward a song. When you first start the app, you can choose a dark, light or custom theme and you can determine the size of the widget yourself.
