Our haul of apps worth downloading this week starts with updates to two social networking apps. First is Carbon for Twitter, the elegant Twitter client that uses a minimalist design to make browsing the social network as easy as possible. Second is SO.HO, an app that brings your social networking feeds to your Android device’s home screen, rather than forcing you to bounce through multiple apps to get yourself updated on all your networks. Finally in the games department comes point-and-click adventure game Detective Grimoire, a murder mystery packed with puzzles to solve, clues to find and suspects to interrogate.
