Apps

When it comes to GPS navigation apps, everyone has their favorite for various reasons. Whether it is prior experience, preferred UI, or unique features, not all nav apps are equal. This morning, CoPilot GPS, a titan in the field of GPS navigation, has announced their new Premium series of apps for Windows Phone, including one for the US and another for Europe.

Currently, CoPilot has their free app on the Store, which receives regular updates. Although free, the app has in-app purchases that unlock premium features with a lifelong license. Now, the Premium versions offer a paid version upfront, but on a lower cost and yearly basis. As a result, you do not need to fork over nearly as much money to use the app.

TouchRetouch is a handy Windows Phone photography app designed to help you remove unwanted content from your photographs. Whether it's a blemish on someone's portrait or an annoying tree limb that has snuck into the frame, TouchRetouch can get rid of them.

The photo editor lacks any additional editing tools (crop, exposure adjustments, filters, etc.) but does a decent job of automatically cloning out unwanted content or objects from your photos. The controls are simple and straightforward and for the most part, TouchRetouch makes a nice first impression.

An official app for Papa John's is now available on the Windows Phone Store. The app, published earlier this month, enables pizza fans to order their favorite meal from the comfort of their own palm. The app itself is a mere web wrapper, but it performs well and is a solid start to at least draw attention to the brand and make the developers aware of consumer demand.
