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. See you next week!

Now that the iOS App Store has become overloaded with software, it has become rather difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff so to speak.  The problem is that for every awesome application released, there are one hundred other garbage titles for it to become buried under.  This is why AppGrooves decided to release their new recommendation tool, meant to only show users the best that the App Store has to offer.

Applying the ‘Hot or Not’ model for rating items to applications looks to yield a constantly updating list of the best software available on the marketplace.  Users can even link directly to a specific program’s App Store page from within AppGrooves itself.  If that isn’t customer service, then I don’t know what is.

Take an active role in letting others know what is amazing on iOS.  User votes can truly make a difference.  Give it a look, it might even save you a buck or two someday.
