From spaceships to Vikings: The best new apps and indie games to download

From taking notes and keeping track of your busy life, to fighting as a Viking and battling in outer space, here are the latest apps and games to download now.

Evernote: Centennial App (update)


The organiser app now comes with more intuitive sidebar navigation. The left sidebar has been redesigned for a more streamlined workflow, so you can find and manage your content even faster. Select “Notebooks” to pull up all your notes in the Note List, and drag and drop a notebook in or out of a stack to move it to a different location. “Trash” now sits permanently as its own section for easier access to deleted notes. You can also collapse the left sidebar into a thin navigation strip for when you need that extra bit of working space. The new Evernote for Windows lets you add colour to important notebooks and tags for quicker identification and access to your notes.
