Best iPhone apps this week

Which app will your iPhone be tango-ing with tonight? We've got five hopefuls right here.

AirCassette £1.49

Sharing a Spotify playlist just isn't the same, is it? But with this retro app you can make "mixtapes" out of queued tracks in your iTunes library, complete with spinning cassettes to gaze at on screen, showing play, rewind and fast forward functions. AirPlay is supported, plus you can share iTunes previews with your musical soulmates.

AR.Hunter £Free

Got a Parrot AR.Drone quadricopter but don't have much to do with it? Grab an AR.Hunter Detection Cap – yes Parrot wants more of your money – and a nearby friend to play this free, two player augmented reality game. It's man versus machine as you try to shoot each other down, virtually of course.

Get it

Adobe Carousel £Free (£3.99 a month/ £39.99 a year)

Cloud photo storage meets image editing in this free app with a premium sub from Adobe. It syncs photos between iPhone, iPad and Mac, lets you share to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr and play around with crops, rotations, adjusting exposure and filters with Looks.

Get it

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation £4.99

Practise your FPS skills on the go with Gameloft's third installment of the Modern Combat series. Up to 12 players can take part in battles or go solo in a 13 mission campaign but be warned – there are some hefty in-app purchases for packs and supplies.

Treasures of the Bodleian £Free

App addicts can love stuffy libraries and be into really, really old stuff too. Which is why we're a fan of the short videos, podcasts and hi-res images of ancient papyri, Victorian manuscripts and telegrams from the Titanic in this app from the University of Oxford.
