Apps to discover podcasts, translate words and offline scan documents. See these and other tips on our list:

The Linguee is a dictionary that supports multiple languages. The cool thing is that it in addition to providing translation, it usually brings the context of sentences in which the term in question is used. The app also works without connection, but loses this context resource. Still, it remains a good option for those traveling abroad and do not want to buy a foreign chip.Download: Linguee (free)
- Calendars 5
The Calendars 5 is not a new app, but it’s free in the App Store for a limited time. It synchronizes tasks and appointments with Google Calendar. As a differential, it has a stylish, colorful interface and the ability to use natural language to create appointments, such as “play tennis every Tuesday and Thursday.”Download: Calendars 5 (free, but for a limited time)
