Notable apps and updates, Feb. 12

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they’re popular and deserve mention. Here are today’s picks.


Feral Interactive has announced that Ajax & Diomedes, the latest DLC for A Total War Saga: TROY, is now available for macOS. Here’s how the game is described: 

More mountain than man, Ajax is said to be descended from the giants and wields a shield that dwarfs his enemies. Alongside his brawn comes one of the finest tactical minds of the age: Diomedes of Argos, who longs to avenge his father’s death at the hands of the Thebans.

These two new heroes bring 18 new units, four additional faction mechanics, unique skill trees, building chains and two new starting positions. The Ajax & Diomedes DLC also sees the arrival of new Paragon units. Led by distinguished veterans, the Paragons fight with a battle-hardened zeal that strikes fear in the hearts of their enemies. 

Additionally, Hephaestus has been added to the Divine Will system as a free update. Players who appease the God of Blacksmiths and Volcanoes may call upon his Divine Craftsman epic agent to strengthen their soldiers’ equipment. King Agamemnon’s call to war has been answered by two of antiquity’s most feared warriors. 

A Total War Saga: TROY – Ajax & Diomedes DLC is available now for macOS exclusively from the Epic Games Store for US$9.99.


Canon U.S.A. has released its Photo Culling app that helps determine a user’s best photos based on scores against four models: sharpness, noise, emotions and closed eyes, using Canon’s Computer Vision Artificial Intelligence Engine known as “PHIL” (abbreviated for Photography Intelligence Learning) Additionally, the app will suggest deleting duplicative photos, which helps you free up space on your iPhone.

Available for download via the App Store, the Photo Culling app will be available under two subscription options: $2.99 per month or $14.99 for the year, each with a three-day trial.
