Our pick of the best new and updated apps on the market this month

From sarcastic weather reports to a lifelike table tennis simulator, this months app selection is full of dumb fun, and – hey – what’s wrong with that, we say. But if it’s something more productive you’re after, there’s also an awesome image editor, an app for streaming video via Twitter and one of the most innovative fitness trackers we’ve yet seen. Take a look through our pick of this month’s best new apps.

Snow White

Carrot is an app developer that’s building its portfolio on snark. It’s already released a to-do list that aims digs at you for not getting on with things, and a fitness app that sneers at your lack of commitment to burning off your love handles. Now we have this, a sarcastic weather forecaster. Its unerringly pessimistic reports are delivered in a deadpan female computer voice – suddenly checking the weather in the morning is like being in your own version of Portal.

iOS (£2.99)
