EACH WEEK, WE highlight five apps that are worth downloading for your smartphone and tablet. There are a lot of apps released on a daily basis, but not all of them are worth paying attention to.

This week features a keyboard that taps into Google Image Search, gesture shortcuts for your phone and a smart photo organiser.

Image Search Keyboard
For: iOS
Cost: Free

Keyboards with instant GIF search may be the flavour of the month, but how this hasn’t been thought of before is beyond us. Image Search Keyboard brings you all images from Google search to your phone.

Considering its vast database, it loads up rather quickly and can be handy if you just need a relevant image here and now.

A floating button designed to reduce the number of clicks you have to make, fooView lets you take quick screenshots, preview files and quick access to certain functions like weather and music among other things.

An alternative browser for those not content with Internet Explorer or Edge, UC BrowserHD has an interface that’s breezy and easy to use. Handy if you’re looking for a alternate browser.

Uncharted: Fortune Hunter
For: iOS, Android
Cost: Free

A puzzle game tying in with the launch of Uncharted 4, Fortune Hunter doesn’t quite match Lara Croft GO but for a casual player, it’s a good puzzle game to play through.

You have a limited number of moves to get Drake from the start to the treasure on the other side of the room, but it’s deeper than its one-screen layout might suggest.
