Sims FreePlay

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 app lovers just like you, and maybe help you discover some apps that you might not find on the top apps lists on iTunes.

This week, we’ve grabbed the top five most recommended apps from Powerslyde:

Fitocracy
Fandango
Flipboard
Car Racing Free (Street Racer)
The Sims FreePlay

Pretty fascinating, if you ask me, and if you’re reading this, I’m assuming you would be if you were here. Or something like that.

These are actually the top five most recommended apps on Powerslyde from the past week, a very different list from last week’s. To see three big non-game apps at the top of the charts is a neat fact that we tend to overlook in the onslaught of games that take all the headlines these days, it seems.

Fitocracy is like an RPG for fitness, letting you track your entire workout routine in one place, and what better way to stay motivated than through gamification? Fandango is still my go-to app to find movie times and buy tickets when I’m in a hurry or on the go, and Flipboard is at least a weekly read in my house–it’s like grabbing the Sunday paper, only it’s stuff I want to read.

Having Car Racing Free and The Sims FreePlay–both fun and free games–at the top of the list just re-iterates the triumph of the free to play economy in gaming: if the game is fun, people are going to recommend it, regardless of the economic model supporting the game.
