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!

Ever use an app and think “Wow, if I knew how to code, I’d be able to do something better than this?” I know I have! Which is why, of late, I’ve been slowly trying to pick up more knowledge about how to do exactly that. It’s a slow process and, no, I’ll never be a millionaire because of it, but it’s an interesting hobby. There’s a wide selection of iOS apps already out there, keen to make the process simpler for enthusiasts. Here are our favorite four.

Developer Cheat Sheet for iOS
Previously covered on the site earlier in the year, Developer Cheat Sheet for iOS is an immensely handy resource by one’s side. Offering a mixture of tutorials and quick reference tools, the app covers a variety of useful skills and abilities in a simple to read format. It even offers source code for users to evaluate and learn from.

Objective-C Programming
For aspiring coders who already have some experience in the C Language, Objective-C Programming is a handy app, building upon that knowledge to get users up to scratch with Objective C, the language used by Xcode to develop apps. Approaching the subject from a different angle than most, the app offers a series of training videos to educate its viewers with over 12 hours of material and 30 lessons. Significantly, it keeps light hearted at all times so do expect some adult humor within.

iTunes U
Still one of the best kept secrets on iTunes, iTunes U is ideal for learning about pretty much anything imaginable. It’s an app that offers many thousands of free courses, often from some of the best known Universities across the world, for anyone who’s interested. Over 600,000 free lectures are available, with plenty of videos, slides and other information, too. Crucially, for the purposes of this feature, there are plenty of different lectures on learning Objective C as well as many other programming languages. It’s a fantastic resource to consult.

Koder Code Editor
There isn’t an Xcode client for iOS, unfortunately, but Koder should prove handy for those testing their skills while on the move. It’s a code editor that works with a variety of web development languages, as well as C# and C++, both languages that are useful foundations for iOS development skills. No matter what kind of code you want to produce, while on the move, the simple and clear to use Koder has you covered.

This Week at 148Apps – January 16-20

This week at 148Apps.com, the news was all about education and how Apple plans to transform it through a variety of iOS and Mac apps. While the new version of iBooks, and the Mac iBooks Author got most of the press, writer Jennifer Allen focused her attention on the newly-released iTunes U for iPad and iPhone. “More than 500,000 free lectures, videos, books and other resources are accessible from within this app with the ability to browse collections from institutions such as Stanford, Yale, Oxford and the New York Public Library. Notes and highlighting functionality makes everything easy to review through this informative app.”

Meanwhile, Amy Solomon investigated Operation: Math over at GiggleApps. She writes, “The style of this app is simply wonderful, but I am embarrassed to admit that I was not able to get past the last addition level and have had problem passing other levels in the subtraction, multiplication and division levels that include double digit mathematics – not from a lack of mathematical ability – but from a lack of time.”

Finally, site editor Rob LeFebvre took a closer look at Game Dojos, a not-so-run-of-the-mill business incubator. He writes, “Game Dojos wants to connect the best of the business with the newest to the business, helping find some micro funding and even office space for program participants. “We’d love the game companies to come here,” Burkett said, referring to San Francisco, where Game Dojos is based, “but we’re also looking into the virtual thing. We’d prefer teams to relocate to SF if they can for the three months, however we are not going to refuse to take a strong talented team based elsewhere, and will talk to them individually for consideration.” They’re not just looking to fund the studios, then, but actually nurture them to help create “longer term companies,” she said.”

Puzzlejuice

We’ve all seen puzzle games that involve colored blocks falling from the top of the screen, in need of arranging to clear them. We’ve all seen games that provide a similar experience but with letters and words needing to be created. How about a game that combines both? Puzzlejuice is exactly that, making for a very potent mix of fun and brainteasing.

Ideal for those with a creative eye, Timelapse Video Recorder enables users to create time lapse videos quickly and simply.

Smash Cops

Fun should always be had on the weekend and Smash Cops should supply bucketloads of it.
