Five Apps to Try this Weekend: featuring Skype Translator, Ice Age Avalanche, and The Witcher

Alex Witcher

Welcome back to Softonics Five Apps, the show that tells you the best way to while away your time till Monday.

First up this week we have Skype Translator. Yes, we have featured this before, but it is now available for anyone using Windows 8.1 or the Windows 10 preview. It can translate voice calls between Italian, Mandarin, English, and Spanish along with 50 written languages. And no, we aren’t going to list them all here.

Next this week is Paper by FiftyThree, a note book app that lets you jot down all of your sketches and ideas with a huge selection of artistic tools.

Music lovers should try out MixRadio (iOS|Android), the service that that creates playlists for you based on your favorite songs and artists. Great for discovering new music.

Also out this week is Ice Age Avalanche (iOS|Android). Based on the popular animated movies, this match-3 puzzler is a lot like Candy Crush, but manages to distinguish itself with great presentation and a few twists on the classic formula.

Finally this week is the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the stunning open-world fantasy RPG for PC and console. With a world bigger than GTA V, and more dynamic combat than Skyrim this game will probably keep us busy until next year.

That’s it for this week, remember to subscribe to make sure you never miss a video, and we will see you next time.
