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 quick way to transfer your CD collection to Spotify, kids learning music and a strategic board game.

CD Scanner for Spotify
For: iOS
Cost: €2.99

Those of you who still have CD collections might find this useful. Scan their barcodes and they’ll be added to your Spotify playlists.

A weather app that may seem like it’s cramming a lot into the one screen but is very easy to navigate. Get detailed forecasts with an easy to understand graph or focus on wind, how cloudy it is or atmospheric pressure. The widget is also pretty useful too for short-term forecasts.

If you have a child who wants to learn about music, this is a nice introduction. Not only will they learn how to read and write music but they will be able to create their own songs too.

If you’re looking for an alternative to Pocket, then Blasket is a good alternative. Save articles, videos and other links in the one place for future reference, but you can also categorise entries so they’re easy to find and read them without the clutter that accompanies some articles.

Tsuro – The Game of the Path
For: iOSAndroid
Cost: €4.99 (iOS), €5.89 (Android)

The board game makes its way to mobile devices and while it may seem daunting at first, it lends itself to some fun and strategic games.

Place tiles down and create the longest path for your stone to cross but paths from other players can hinder you or take you off the board entirely.
