March is well and truly over and like most months on the worlds most popular app store, it was a busy one. Releases and big updates were coming in abundance, luckily for you we've rounded up some of the best ones and put them in an article for you.

Please note: Apps are in no particular order.

Imgur

If you've never heard of Imgur you might want to crawl out of that rock you've been living under. The web's favourite place for gifs and memes now has a fully-functional iOS app to upload your funniest cat gifs to.

App Store aficionados will be quick to tell you that there was already an app for iPhones, but the newly released version is a complete rebuild from the original, and it's 100% more useful.

As well as browsing the worlds images, you can vote on images and take part in discussions and sort images by popularity or time. The one huge ommision from the app is the ability to upload your own images from your device, however the feature is coming soon.

Tether

Tether is an extremely useful, yet unbelievably simple app that unlocks your Mac via your iPhone.

The way it works is brilliant. After the initial setup and the Mac is connected with your iPhone, every time you walk about from your Mac it will lock, come back to start working again, and it'll unlock

Once installed and setup you'll never even have to open the app again. Oh and it's free.

Gmail

You'll be aware that Gmail certainly isn't a new app, but the influx of functionality in its update this month made it worthy of this list.

Google added various different functions in its recent iOS Gmail overhaul including; notification replies and the ability to archive messages, an 'Open-In' extension and a new attachment view.

Stre.am

There's a trend starting to form in the world of video sharing, streaming is starting to become hugely popular in 2015, with big companies jumping on the already-rapid bandwagon.

Stre.am is one of the newest company's to throw its hat into this particular ring, just in time for SXSW as well. Stre.am's biggest selling factor, it allows you to live-stream from any where in the world straight from your mobile device... however it might be in for some competition.

Periscope

Arguably the biggest app launch of the month goes to the folks over at Twitter. Their answer to the new live-streaming phenomenon is Periscope.

Periscope is very similar to Stre.am, but unlike Stre.am, Periscope has got the backing of Twitter's resources and its huge user base. Periscope lets you livestream from your device while giving you the ability to save your videos for later as well.

Things are really moving forward in the world of live-streaming.

White Label

Hip-hop fan? iPhone user? If yes to both then you'll love White Label, it's a music discovery app that uses services such as Soundcloud and Twitter to track which which songs are blowing up in the hip-hop genre.

Although music discovery apps are not exactly rare, you'll find that when the apps are more targeted on a genre, the quality of the discoveries become miles better.

Nokia HERE

Nokia HERE - Nokia's very own map service - has been in and out of the App Store more than Flappy Bird remakes. It's 15 month hiatus from the AppStore means that it's got a bit of catching up to do when it comes to the map game

It's got everything you'd expect from a map app, but with a little extra in its locker. Nockia HERE has the ability to perform offline navigation, something which has been lacking in the bigger map apps. As well as that, it has mapping for over 100 countries, so if you're a big traveller, HERE might be for you.

My only worry for Nokia HERE is that once the Apple and Google step up their offline game, HERE will be just another map app.

Layout

Photo collage apps are easily one of the most over-saturated markets on the App Store and most of them do the job but don't really have any extra about them.

Now there's Layout; Instagram's new app that aims to put all the pretenders to bed. It's slick, clean, ad-free interface is perfect for create beautiful photo collages.

The options that Layout provides aren't exactly going to blow you away, but because its an app from such a big player, the running support and updates for it will probably bring a heap of new features.

Medium

Medium, the hugely popular blogging site has received it's predictable, yet highly-needed iOS app.

Medium brings all the basic features you'd expect from an article writing app such as, writing and publishing full posts directly from your phone, setting titles, creating drafts, basic formatting and creating drafts.

The popularity of Medium, leads you to think that there could be a whole host of useful updates coming in the future, we'll be keeping an eye out.

Adobe Comp CC

We covered Adobe's new brainstorming app on Ultralinx last week, so I wont go into too much detail.

But in short, Comp CC aims to bridge the gap between mobile and desktop design apps, by creating useful project layouts. The app is fully compatible with InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

So that's it, a rather successful month you could say, some other notable exceptions from this list include:

Tempo - Cool video effects.
Spylight - Buy clothes you see on TV.
Infinit - Share large video files to and from your phone.
Flashgap - Take photos on a night out, don't see them until the next morning.
OneShot - 'Post Screenshorts' to get past Twitter's 140-character limit.
Ar Watch - See how the Apple Watch will look on you through augmented reality.

If you think we've missed any apps out, let us know so we can add them in.
