Apple confirmed on Sunday that it has removed several apps from the App Store to clean up malicious malware affecting users, according to Reuters. Apple moved quickly to solve the problem after several security firms published a list of infected apps, including popular titles such as Angry Birds 2 and the messaging service WeChat.

"We’ve removed the apps from the App Store that we know have been created with this counterfeit software," Apple spokeswoman Christine Monaghan said in an email to Reuters. "We are working with the developers to make sure they’re using the proper version of Xcode to rebuild their apps."

Voter - Matchmaking for Politics

Voter - Matchmaking for Politics is a new matchmaking app for politics. The app pairs users with the best politician and political party for them by analyzing data, such as public stances, voting records, speeches, and more. It is a lot like those "what television character are you" quizzes you see on Facebook, but instead of being matched with Walking Dead characters you're matched with politicians like Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton and so on.

Wi-Fi Assist is one of the best iOS 9 features

Wi-Fi Assist

Being stuck on a weak Wi-Fi connection is annoying, especially when you know you could be using a better cellular option. This mostly occurs when you're outside but near your house, when using a public Wi-Fi, or when using Wi-Fi at a retail location like a bookstore or coffee shop. Before iOS 9, users receiving a weak Wi-Fi signal would have to make a decision to stick with the dodgy Wi-Fi connection, try to find a better connection or they would have to disable Wi-Fi on their device so they could connect to a cellular network. Thanks to Wi-Fi Assist you will no longer have to do any of these time consuming steps to have a strong connection on your device anytime.
