New iPhone apps worth downloading: Flickring for Flickr, Yomaney update, Robot Unicorn Attack 2

by Phil Hornshaw

Browse through Flickr with the help of Flickring, a photography app for checking photos at full resolution that automatically syncs your Camera Roll with your Flickr account. Yomaney is up next, which helps users keep their personal finances in order by sending notifications for bills due dates. Finally, there’s Robot Unicorn Attack 2, an endless runner that adds new features and a free-to-play model to the delightfully weird Adult Swim series.

Flickring for Flickr ($0.99)

What’s it about? Photo viewer Flickring for Flickr makes paging through images seamless.

What’s cool? Flickring automatically uploads your new images to Flickr, so you never have to bother keeping your Camera Roll in sync with your Flickr account. You can even order prints from Walgreens stores and share your images through social networks, create postcards and collages through the app. Flickring is equipped with AirPlay compatibility for viewing your photos on larger screens like your computer or through Apple TV.

Who’s it for? Regular users of Flickr who want more out of the social network should check out Flickring.

What’s it like? Try the official Flickr app and Flickstackr Explorer for Flickr, both of which provide more ways of browsing the network and the photos within.

Yomaney update ($1.99)

What’s it about? Keep your finances in check with the help of Yomaney, which syncs with your bank accounts and sends alerts so you don’t miss paying bills.

What’s cool? The app lets you add expenses and incomes, so you can keep track of your financial life. Yomaney is best when used to keep track of bills you have coming and other repeated expenses, and can be set up to fire off reminders when your bills are coming due to help you make sure you don’t miss any. The app’s newest update adds new navigation options and redesigned menus and new transaction listings that help you better organize the money you’re spending.

Who’s it for? If you could use help keeping track of your spending, try Yomaney.

Robot Unicorn Attack 2 (Free)

What’s it about? Return to the world of the metal unicorn in Robot Unicorn Attack 2, an endless runner with a goofy aesthetic from Adult Swim Games.

What’s cool? Like the last Robot Unicorn Attack, the sequel has players running across floating islands and dashing through monsters as walls. You score points by grabbing collectibles along the way, like blue orbs, and smashing through obstacles, as well as by just staying alive for as long as you can. With the blue orbs you collect and earn from completing different tasks, you can customize your unicorn, open up new levels, and add different power-ups to help you boost your score.

Who’s it for? Fans of the first Robot Unicorn Attack will enjoy the sequel’s improved art style and music.

What’s it like? Don’t forget to try the first Robot Unicorn Attack, and the slightly tweaked Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal.
