The App Store is a busy place, and it’s easy to miss an awesome new release, much less an update to an old app that makes it worthy of re-downloading.

That’s why we’ve done the work for you and collected the very best new app releases from the past week.

Flashlight and other awesome Mac and iOS app updates you might have missed last week

By

Flashlight-780x533

Spotlight got a major upgrade with OS X Yosemite, but what if it could do even more?

The new 1.0 release of Flashlight is so good that Apple hired its developer, Nate Parrott, to work as an intern on Spotlight.

Flashlight is a little like Alfred and LaunchBar, expect it hooks directly into Spotlight and adds over 160 actions. That means you may need to never use a third-party app launcher utility again, although many power users will likely stick with their current setup.

So what exactly can Flashlight do? The list is too long to put here, but some options include: creating calendar events, creating reminders, opening URLs, translating text, calling numbers, sending iMessages, checking the weather, ejecting disks, copying emojis, and turning on a screensaver.

Available on: Mac

Price: Free

Download: Flashlight website

Adobe’s latest app is a powerful brainstorming and publishing tool for laying out words and images in a beautiful web layout. Whether you’re a student working on a project or a businessman creating an office presentation, Slate is designed to be flexible with pre-installed themes and plenty of tools.

The easiest way to summarize Slate is a dumbed-down version of InDesign for the iPad. It’s nice to see powerhouses like Adobe continuing to invest in the tablet as a content creation tool. For an example of what you can make with Slate, check out this gorgeous story on Snowy Owls.

Available on: iPad
