MLB At Bat

TV Guide

The TV Guide app shows trending TV shows today, in case you want to know what everyone else is likely to be watching. (TV Guide is owned by CBS, which owns CNET, but I also love this app.)

Of the many weird and not-that-fun games for the Apple Watch, Elevate elevates itself by being a quick series of test-your-wits timed quizzes, a little extra companion for the train-your-brain iPhone app.

It’s a separate radio remote control for your iPhone, playing, skipping, favoriting tracks and browsing your stations. It works pretty well, and launches reliably.
