The 4 best iOS apps of the past week
The App Store works overtime every week. New apps, updates for existing programs and games are being added all the time. You probably won’t notice this, because most of it is not worth downloading. iPhoned therefore separates the wheat from the chaff every Sunday. These are the best iOS apps, updates, and games this week.
1. Viral Days
There are already several games that respond to the corona pandemic. Plague Inc .: For example, The Cure is all about statistics and researching a possible vaccine. Viral Days is a lot simpler. In this SimCity-like game, you have to prevent the virus from spreading across a fictional town. If healthy people are around an infected person for too long, they themselves become infected.
It is your job to quarantine or take carriers of the virus to hospital. You also have access to a masks factory, so that people can protect themselves (a little). In the higher levels you have the option to set a lockdown. However, this has a major impact on the economic prosperity of the town.

The Christmas days are over, but the holidays are certainly not yet. And since trips outdoors are a bit tricky at the moment, it is a good time to further develop your baking skills. HomyBaky is a new recipe app full of delicious ideas for yummy cakes or desserts. Already for New Year’s Eve or just in between.
How about a stroopwafel cheesecake, for example? Or brownies with white chocolate and hazelnut? In addition to the ingredients and preparation method, each recipe also states how difficult it is to make the delicacy. This way you can enter at your level and success is guaranteed.
3. Doodle Jump 2
Doodle Jump is one of the oldest and most popular games ever released for iOS. The platform game came out in 2009 and has been updated frequently since then. The makers also launched several special variants. Now there is finally an official successor with the little surprising title Doodle Jump 2.
The simple design of the game has not changed. You still jump from platform to platform by moving your iPhone left and right. Along the way you will encounter new characters and worlds. You have to collect stars to complete the different levels. Doodle Jump 2 is a wonderfully nostalgic game, perfect for when you have nothing to do.
