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 bad corgis, self-improvement and blocky mazes.

Priime
For: iOS
Cost: Free

A camera app that’s designed to improve your photos. While it offers filters, they’re from prominent photographers who recommend the best situations to use them in. Some of the filters are paid though so keep that in mind.

Pointy
For: iOS, Android
Cost: Free

An Irish app designed to help you find specific items in local shops. It breaks them up into categories like retro sweets, health foods, coffee  and educational games and shows you locations and the distance you need to travel.

You’ll find it more useful if you’re based in Dublin but the potential is there.

Bad Corgi
For: iOS
Cost: Free

Describing itself as a mindfulness app, Bad Corgi is a random app where your goal is to, well, just run around herding sheep. There’s no real aim to it and it will remind you more of games like Goat Simulator for the sheer randomness.

Remente – Personal Development
For:Android
Cost: Free

If you need a bit of focus in your life, this slick app could help you out. After it rates your satisfaction in different areas like relationship, social life and fitness, it suggests manageable goals for you to achieve (or you can just create your own).

Hammer Bomb
For: iOS, Android
Cost: Free

Think Minecraft with a little bit of claustrophobia and you have a decent idea of what to expect here. You explore randomly-generated mazes while collecting treasure, fighting/avoiding monsters and gaining experience.

It’s free but it manages to balance the ratio of ads with gameplay well so you won’t be left too frustrated.
