When we first reviewed AroundMe, it was a pretty awesome app. Now, over three years later, it's still an awesome app. Only now it's dressed up for iOS 7. The interface has been redesigned so that it's simpler and matches the iOS 7 aesthetic. Feel free to compare and contrast the screens below. And, of course, it's also been tweaked so that it actually works with iOS 7 in the first place.

So go ahead and give this handy (and free) location-based app a try. Or if you already own it, update it already so you can drink in the flat design goodness.

Five of the Most Recommended Apps This Week: September 9-13, 2013

Posted by Chris Kirby on September 17th, 2013

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!
