Whew, it’s been a long week at work full of meetings and events (we had an eventful one too… with Rebecca Minkoff no less!). You’ve finally made it to your favorite time of the week: best apps of the week time. This week, we’ve got an emoji search engine that’s going to help you tame the emoji keyboard, an entirely commercial-free music player and so much more. So kick back and scroll through these great new apps that will make your smartphonethat much better.


1. Paste: Ever find yourself scrolling and scrolling through that endless emoji keyboard in search of the right little image? That all ends with Paste, a brilliant emoji search. Simply type in the term you’re looking for and Paste will provide you with all the applicable emojis. Then, just copy and paste over!

DL It: Free on iOS


2. Jukebox: Here’s the smartphone music player we’ve all been waiting for. Jukebox uses your Dropbox account to store all your music (might as put all those unused GBs to use). Simply download your fave songs into Dropbox and then stream through the app for always uninterrupted music.

DL It: Free on iOS


3. Wildcard: This super popular iOS news app has finally landed on Android. It’s like Tinder, but for news. Wildcard delivers perfectly curated news for you on nifty little cards that you can easily swipe through or tap into if you want to go in-depth.

DL It: Free on iOS and Android


4. Upshot: Here’s the social photo sharing app that’s absolutely seamless. Just create an event in the app, turn on auto-sharing and invite your friends. Any photos from your get-together will automatically get shared to the event. Don’t worry, you have three minutes to delete something before it’s uploaded into the app in case you want to keep some things private.

DL It: Free on iOS


5. Caffeine: The coffee addiction is real? Here’s the app that will help you keep tabs on that. Simply select what kind of drink you’re having from the options (or input it manually) and the app will help you track your intake. The best part is the app will actually update the Apple Health app automatically too.

DL It: $0.99 on iOS
