In this week's edition of our Apps of the Week roundup we have a platform for listening to and taking part in live conversations, an app the encourages smiling more, and a digital work break buddy. And as always, we've selected two great games for you to check out.
Space is a platform where folks can listen to audio conversations between others, and host some of their own. Think of it as Anchor meets Instagram Live. You can listen to folks discuss everything from sports to politics, or dive into more specific topics. As with any new app like this, its value will greatly depend on its traction.

Studies have shown that smiling produces endorphins that can reduce stress, lower blood pressure and even boost your immune system. Smappy is an app that hopes to help you do it more by playing games designed to make you smile. Features include facial recognition, AR tech, smile timer and before-and-after mood tracking.
In a similar vein we have StretchMinder. It's a health app that offers a library of workplace-friendly, guided break routines designed to force you to take breaks and get moving. There are mindfulness breaks, walking breaks and movement breaks, and you can completely customize your routine to fit around your work schedule.
From the creators of the popular game Golf Blitz comes Motorball. It's essentially a top-down, 2D version of Rocket League (which I love, btw). The object is to play 1v1 soccer inside vehicles, and obviously score goals. Features include vehicle upgrades and customization, and you can watch live global matches via Motorball TV.
For something more hi-res and engaging, check out Titan Glory. It's a sci-fi mech combat game that takes place in the near future, where mech combat sports are all the rage. You take part in tournaments, in which winning matches will earn you credits that you can use to unlock and customize new mech warrior and weapons.

Whether you’re into politics or just enjoying the show from the sidelines, you may need to take a break from it all.
Front Runners is a casual endless running game that is a great way to relax, have some fun, and take a much needed break from the current political hoopla.
Developed by UX Fit, Inc., it features numerous hysterical cartoon images of famous political candidates and the opportunity to compete with other players around the world.
Concept and Gameplay:
With 2020 being a major election year in the United States, it’s without surprise that politics are a big talking point right now with many folks on either side getting angry and uptight.
Front Runners is your chance to relax and chill as you experience its entertaining and comedic twist on the political process, which is actually pretty refreshing.
You can play as a variety of political candidates, most of which you have to unlock one way or another. This endless running game requires you to swipe up, down, left, or right to dodge obstacles such as the media or even the Coronavirus.
While running and avoiding obstacles you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the west coast.
As you’re running, you’ll collect votes that can be counted towards your position on the leaderboard or used to purchase additional items like candidates and uniforms.
However, you’re going to need to run for quite a bit of time seeing as the price for purchases is a bit steep. The better you get at the game, though, the more votes you’ll earn with each run.
Front Runners iPhone Game
The first thing you’ll notice when you start this game is the well-done fun colorful cartoon graphics. They perfectly match the spirit and tone of the game.
But perhaps the best part about Front Runners is the actual gameplay itself. It’s pretty straightforward and simple – don’t hit anything and you’ll get a high score.
The main reason why I really enjoy games like this is that you’re allowed to zone out and focus on just the game.
This is a great “pick up and play” game that you don’t have to labor over and think much about. You may even get so good that you surprise yourself with new high scores!
Along with additional candidates, you can also unlock a new map in Front Runners by spending gold coins.
These coins are purchased with real money and can also be used to resume where you left off if you end up hitting something. If you don’t want to spend money, you can choose to watch an ad instead.
Front Runners is available to download from the App Store for free and is supported by ads.
Though you can purchase coin bundles, it doesn’t look like there’s an option to turn the ads off with payment.
Overall, Front Runners is a very fun endless running game regardless of your political leaning and even if you’re not into the political scene at all.
The gameplay and graphics are great and it’s actually pretty challenging to get a decent high score. I certainly recommend giving it a try.
Front Runners requires iOS 10.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
