Oyster

Finding instant access to entertainment is easy these days — plenty of options bring you streamed shows and movies wherever you are. But what if you prefer reading to watching? Say hello to Oyster. Like a Netflix for readers, this service provides access to over 500,000 ebooks — including thousands of NYT bestsellers and hand-curated lists of Pulitzer Prize winners, Oprah's picks, and more — for a monthly price that's less than the price of a delivery pizza. And thanks to the well-designed, multi-platform app, finding a new novel to read is nearly as enjoyable as the reading itself.

Presented by Oyster.

  • 1-Hour Photo

    Instant gratification — that's what a big part of the mobile experience is all about. Instant access to the Internet. Instant access to your friends. Etc. Which is what makes 1-Hour Photo so novel. This free app lets you shoot photos as soon as you open it, but with one big caveat — you can't see the results for an hour, as the app forces you to stay in the moment and applies a smooth black and white film emulation. It might not make sense, but it's also free, so you have little excuse to not give it a try.

  • Steady Camera

    Your iPhone can already do a little stabilization of its own, but if you've ever tried to film while walking, running, riding a bike, or otherwise moving in a jumpy way, you know it can only do so much. On its own, anyway. Download Steady Camera, and you'll have a way better chance of coming out with great looking footage. This new app uses the gyroscope sensors in your phone to know where the camera is pointing, automatically compensating for abrupt movements to give you footage that looks smooth as a Steadicam. And slo-mo junkies are taken care of as well - with the ability to set start and end points, sharing is as easy as render and tap.
