This week, we take on Triple H, ask Tom Hanks to help us with typing, use Spring to shop for the Fall, and wow our friends with our own emoji-laden memes.

Albums (feat. Louie Mantia) [Radio Edit]
For most, the iPhone doubles as the world’s best MP3 player. What helps it gain that recognition is the diverse selection of apps dedicated to letting you enjoy your music. The default Music app is good, but it’s not for everyone, leaving the window open for alternatives Music apps like Albums.
Albums takes the complexity out of the equation, instead putting the focus square on your favorites. The result is a one-touch experience that provides a visual UI experience highlighted by album artwork of your favorites. You can drag and re-order your favorites to your liking. For important functions like skipping and volume adjustments, you’ll need to swipe up and use Control Center.
It’s beautiful, simple and might be a great option for navigating music while on the road.
