Goo: Slime Simulator
We could all do with a little stress-breaking goo, but what if you don’t like the idea of it getting stuck in your carpet?

The app also has ASMR and nature sound sections, but they’re less fun – stretch that mud!

Everyone might be talking about iOS 14 and reskinning their iPhone, but we all know Android had this feature first.

Okay, this isn’t strictly an app, but if you’re a video creation team now working completely remotely due to the pandemic, you’ll want to check this out. Oslo is a centralized hub for collaboration on video editing projects, allowing you to upload footage to the cloud and then have the team add annotations and comments to the images, so you can edit without long email chains. This is really quite impressive from the team at Streamlabs, allowing real-time collaboration on the cheap.
