Ready to get a little social? Powerslyde is here to help you in your quest. Just take a look at these five top recommended apps this week:

Instagram
Ban.jo
Appgrooves
Kik Messsenger
AroundMe

Remember when it was just Facebook and Twitter? No, me either. Anyway, if you don’t know what Instagram is, I’m amazed you’re reading this article. As for Ban.jo and AroundMe, I’ll forgive you for not knowing about these social networks that incorporate happenings, events, and locations nearby a-la Yelp or FourSquare.

An interesting inclusion this week is AppGrooves which, like Powerslyde, recommends other apps to its users. And then there’s Kik Messenger, which claims to be the fastest messaging app out there. Is it? I don’t know, as there’s a glut of messaging apps out there, including Apple’s own iMessage.

Ok…deep breath…do you feel properly socialized now? Good. Join us next week for another installment of the ongoing app popularity saga. Thanks to Powerslyde, the app that leverages your friends’ app recommendations, for this week’s list. What apps do you recommend? Drop us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter.

In honor of this week’s inevitable new iPhone announcement, five of the top recommended apps are best described as ‘App Classics.’ Take a look:

Facebook
Temple Run
Shazam
Twitter
YouTube

Ah, the oldies but goodies! Hard to believe there was a time, not so long ago, when Facebook and Twitter weren’t baked into iOS. Still, refreshes to these social networks’ apps have made them must-haves for every iPhone and iPad user. And while a sequel and numerous copycats have followed in its footsteps, sometimes nothing beats the original Temple Run for pure, unadulterated endless-running goodness.

Google did a great thing and recently brought a major update to its YouTube app, breathing new life into one of its line of classic apps. And as for Shazam, does anyone else remember when this technology seemed like magic? Strange how quickly an app becomes old hat. For those wanting to know who’s performing a song, however, it’s still a must-own.

So all you young whippersnapper apps, take heed! You could learn a thing or two from these classics.

This week, our top Powerslyde recommendations are all about games. So why waste any more time? Let’s get to the list:

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Pro
Office Jerk
CSR Racing
Robbery Bob
MotoHeroz

Some obscure games populating the list this week, for sure. However, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Pro got a solid four-star review from our own Jennifer Allen, who said, “Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a hunting sim with brains, but it could do with a smoother learning curve. Persevere and it’s fantastically satisfying.” Allen also gave a three-star review to CSR Racing, mentioning a tendency towards monetization in the game that got in the way of gameplay.

As for the remainder of our list, Office Jerk is a strange Paper Toss-type game that has players hurling unusual objects at an annoying co-worker, Robbery Bob is an overhead-view stealth game, and MotoHeroz is a Trials HD clone that got a great review from Carter Dotson.

So let this be a lesson to you, loyal reader: a game’s obscurity does not mar its playability. Keep that in mind as you recommend apps and games to others. And thanks to Powerslyde, the app that recommends apps, for this week’s list. What apps do you recommend? Drop us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter. See you next week!

nfl

Ready to slyde? Our friends at Powerslyde, the app recommendation app (say THAT ten times fast), are back with another list for this past week. Here are some highlights:

NFL.com Fantasy Football 2013
NFL Pro 2014 : The Ultimate Football Simulation
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013
Clash of Clans
The Simpsons: Tapped Out

This week’s list is dominated by sports (three apps this week if you include the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013 app). Football season is right around the corner, so it should come as no surprise that NFL.com Fantasy Football 2013 and NFL Pro 2014: The Ultimate Football Simulation top our list this week. Who knows what other football-inspired goodies will show up on our list in the coming months.

But for those who prefer their competition to be more virtual than gridiron, there’s Clash of Clans and The Simpsons: Tapped Out to keep them occupied. So no matter what type of competitive battle you want, there’s an app for that.

Thanks again to Powerslyde for our list this week. What apps do you recommend? Drop us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter. See you next week!

khan

I’ll bet you’re sitting around wondering to yourself, “Self, I wonder what apps Powerslyde is recommending this week?” Lucky dog! We’ve got the answer to that very question.

Back to school is in full effect this week:

Khan Academy
Evernote
iTunes U
Poshmark
MLB.com At Bat

Khan Academy has changed the education game forever, and now no student worth his or her salt should be without it – particularly for its in-depth math and science instruction. Likewise, iTunes U delivers a miraculous wealth of content all via a teeny-tiny app. And is there ANYONE on the planet who has not heard of Evernote? It’s only the premiere cross-platform note taking app.

Finally, all students need apps for their free time, so Poshmark is there to help ladies (and occasionally gentlemen) find amazing deals on clothes, while MLB.com At Bat keeps all baseball fans in touch with their favorite teams in the home stretch of the season.

Thanks to Powerslyde, the app that recommends apps, for our list this week. What apps do you recommend? Drop us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter. See you next week!

To paraphrase Casey Kasem, Powerslyde ranks ‘em, and we count ‘em down!

This week, five of the most recommended apps are racing or car-related games:

Car Racing Free
Highway Rider
GT Racing: Motor Academy Free
Cars 2 AppMATes
JellyCar 3 Lite

Maybe this trend towards automobiles makes sense. Cars, travel, summer, vacation….they all go together perfectly! But while games like JellyCar and even GT Racing are somewhat familiar to many iOS owners, some of these are off the beaten path. Car Racing Free is an old-school, overhead view racer with tilt controls, while Cars 2 AppMATes is a companion game for a physical series of toys. And for those who love the feeling of open air on the road, there’s Highway Rider, a motorcycle racing game.

Thanks to Powerslyde – an app that recommends even more apps for your iPhone or iPad – for our list this week. What apps do you recommend? Drop us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter.

ruzzle

Each and every week, we take a look at the top twenty apps as recommended on Powerslyde. Once installed on your iOS device, Powerslyde detects the apps you have installed, then recommends apps you may like and may not be aware of. Think of it as a way to get App recommendations from somewhere other than the App Store itself.

This week, five of the most recommended apps are:

Amazing Alex
Flow Free
Ruzzle
Chasing Yello
Plumber Crack

Looks like casual games made a strong showing this week, with Rovio’s Amazing Alex possibly returning due to interest in the two new Rovio Stars games that have recently hit the App Store: Ice Breaker and Tiny Thief. Ruzzle made an impression on reviewer Ruari O’Gallchoir, who says, “Ruzzle has several tricks up its sleeve to differentiate itself from it’s more established competitors.” Two of the five are lesser-known games that follow fairly standard formulas: Chasing Yello is an endless runner, and Flow Free is a color-matching game. As for Plumber Crack, we’ll leave that one up to your imagination. If you’re wondering if someone could build a game around that particular anatomical gem, it seems like they can and did.

Etsy iOS App

Each week, we take a look at the top twenty most recommended iOS apps on Powerslyde. We want to help you find some great apps recommended by every day users like yourselves, and maybe bring to light some apps that might not show up in the top apps lists on iTunes.

Here are five of the most recommended apps this week:

Angry Birds Space
Temple Run
Etsy
Talking Tom Cat
Toshl Finance

Now, that’s pretty interesting, right? Angry Birds Space continues to be super popular, perhaps even more so than the fist iteration of the outrageously successful Angry Birds phenomenon. Temple Run was a huge hit, spawning a sequel, and two Disney-branded spin offs as well, but it’s the first game that’s on the top recommended list here.

Talking Tom Cat is an app that has youngsters talking to an animated cat, who will then repeat the phrases in a funny voice with matching animations; makes a lot of sense it would be recommended by so many folks. The Etsy iOS app packages the crafter’s retail site into an on-the-go package, super useful for those who need a hand-made gift on the fly. Toshl Finance is a useful financial app that starts out free; you only need to pay for the features you want.

What do you think? Any apps you’d recommend beyond these? Sound off in the comments below!

Powerslyde is a mobile app that helps you discover the apps your friends are using, while letting you curate your own recommendation lists.

angry birds space

Powerslyde is a free iOS app that detects the games and apps you have on your iPhone and then makes recommendations for other apps and games you might like. You can use the app to discover great apps that you might not have known about yet, and recommend those apps that you love to your friends and social networks.

This week, Powerslyde users have recommended some great apps to fill out your iPhone. Give them a quick peek below. We’ve grabbed five of the most recommended ones, and here they are.

Skype
Instagram
Paper by FiftyThree
LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias
Rolando

Interesting list, to say the least. It’s a delight to see older games like LostWinds2 and Rolando (one of the first iOS games ever) come in as some of the most highly recommended apps this past week. It’s also fantastic to note those three non-game apps, too. Paper is a fantastic mixed media art app that still resides on my own iPad, while Skype is indispensable as a business and keep-in-touch tool. And Instagram continues to be my favorite way to filter and share iPhone pictures socially.
