Now that Earth's mightiest heroes have undoubtedly gotten their hands on their own Apple Watches (I mean they do have at least two major technophiles on the team), it's time to figure out which apps would benefit which superhero the most. Sorry Ultron, this list is for goodguys only.
Avengers, do the thing!
Bruce Banner (The Hulk)
Let’s face it: The Hulk has anger issues. And what calms angry folks down fast? Adorable pets! With Petcube he can check in on his cuddly friends, and even play with them remotely while he’s out saving the world. Everybody wins!
Clint Barton (Hawkeye)
What? Everybody has to go shopping sometimes, and Avengers don’t have a very big window for day-to-day activities. The Target app will make Hawkeye’s mundane side of life a bit more convenient.
S.H.I.E.L.D’s spymaster knows a thing or two about running covert operations - and a thing or two about running an entire organization that runs covert operations. It’s not that difficult to picture him running field ops from his wrist (at the helm of that giant flying aircraft carrier thing, no less). Hopefully he doesn’t get the real communications confused with game notifications, though…
Pietro Maximoff (Quicksilver)
With all that jogging (technically sprinting?), Quicksilver is bound to get lots of use out of Runtastic - whether that means keeping up with fitness goals, tracking workouts, or (more likely) mapping locations out. Granted it’s possible he might break the app because of the numbers he generates, or because of friction, but Tony Stark should be able to sort all that out.
Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch)
The biggest problem Scarlet Witch has with her powers is that she can over-extend herself, and run out of juice/mojo/magic/whatever you want to call it as a result. That’s why she should be using Time Mark to keep track of how long she can stay active, and potentially avoid getting caught with an empty tank (so to speak) in the future.
Steve Rogers (Captain America)
He may not technically be running the show, but Captain America tends to like organizing the “troops.” Apps like Slack will help with keeping everyone on the same page. Specifically off the battlefield - let’s focus on that army of evil robots devoted to humanity’s destruction first.
Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow)
As a badass spy/assassin, Black Widow is needed all over the globe (when she’s not trying to stop armageddon). That means a lot of planes, trains, and automobiles. And hotels. I’m sure S.H.I.E.L.D handles most of the booking and expenses, but it helps to have a Plan B for when things inevitably go sideways.
Tony Stark (Iron Man)
Tony Stark has a lot going on in his life pretty much all the time. He’s almost always got billion dollar projects on top of billion dollar deals, meetings, dinners, inventing, tinkering, elbow-rubbing, and world saving on his plate. While J.A.R.V.I.S is no doubt excellent at keeping him organized, Wunderlist will make it easier for him to share his itinerary with friends, coworkers, and of course the press.
The main reason the world ended up in peril last time is because Thor couldn’t keep tabs on his brother. Now he can use Tile to covertly (or maybe overtly since he’s a god and can do whatever he wants) track Loki from his wrist. I mean really, if he’d hidden a Tile in that scepter then their last encounter would’ve ended much sooner.
What could a super-intelligent android possibly need in terms of an app? Well if it runs on solar power like Vision does, using Solar Lunar to keep track of sunrises, sunsets, and the phases of the moon would certainly come in handy. Until it invents a way around this limitation, anyway. Or starts wearing sunlamps as hats.
Sam Wilson (The Falcon)
A few different apps came to mind when I was trying to find a good fit for The Falcon. I mean the guy can talk to, control, and even see through the eyes of birds. Twitter was kind of a given but that’s too easy. I think Procreate Pocket is a much better fit since he can use it to sketch out all the undoubtedly beautiful vistas he can share with his avian friends.
