Welcome to this week's Weekly App Roundup! Each week we'll be shining a light on the latest and greatest apps available for your phones and tablets. This week we're taking a look at an app that's like Snapchat for documents, a long-awaited Windows Phone app and a BAFTA-winning game that's made the journey to mobile. 

Digify
Free
iOS, Android

Digify is Snapchat for documents, allowing users to send confidential documents without the fear of unauthorised copies being made. When sending a file, users are able to set when the file self-destructs; this can be anything from a minute to a week. Unlike Snapchat, documents are only stored on Digify's servers, adding another layer of security. Digify has a number of other protection mechanisms built it in, such as deleting the document if a user attempts to take a screenshot. Digify works with images, PDFs and Microsoft Office documents and is guaranteed to make you feel like a spy.

 

Thomas Was Alone
$7.49
iOS, Android

Thomas Was Alone is BAFTA winning puzzle platformer that has now made its way to iOS and Android. Players help Thomas, a curious rectangle, unravel the mysteries of his existence across 100 levels. On top of immersive gameplay, the game received critical acclaim for its emotional and engaging story. Most importantly, the controls stack-up fairly well on Thomas' new home on smaller devices.

Live Lock Screen Beta
Free
Windows Phone

Four months after the first unveiling of Windows Phone's interactive Live Lock Screens, Microsoft have made a beta available. Live Lock Screens give Windows Phone users a whole new level of customisation, and each of the six designs included revamps how time, date, notifications are displayed. The app lives up to its Beta status, with users reporting patchy performance on some devices. Nonetheless, definitely worth checking out. Live Lock Screen is only available for Windows Phone 8.1.
