Five of the Most Recommended Apps This Week: August 19 - 23

Posted by Chris Kirby on August 26th, 2013

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!

iPad App - Designed for iPad

The London 2012 Summer Olympics are very nearly upon us, and they mark the first Summer Olympics with a hugely successful App Store to tempt us in. The App Store was new and somewhat untouched ground back in 2008, so it's no wonder we're seeing so many titles emerge this time round. Sports Illustrated Live from London 2012 is one such title.

Sports Illustrated Live from London 2012 offers the stunning photography we've come to expect from Sports Illustrated, along with up to the second scores and results. A medal count as well as regular news will be provided, alongside a schedule of all upcoming events.

It's the photography that will hopefully grip users the most, however, with top photos of each day and a daily video recap promised. Throughout, there are features from Sports Illustrated's writers to capture readers' attentions.

Sports Illustrated Live from London 2012 should prove an ideal visual-heavy companion to the Summer Olympics this month.

It's out now for the iPad and is free to download.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

As a companion to the 2012 Swimsuit Edition, Sports Illustrated has officially launched its companion iPhone app. The free version of the app allows access to a selection of photos for each of this year's models, while those who pay the $6.99 upgrade will get every single photo from this year's issue as well as exclusive videos, the ability to rotate the photos, and more. Those who already have a subscription to the magazine can grab the premium version of the app for free, all you have to do is punch in your subscription info and the upgrade is yours.

For those who want to show off to friends, the app also supports Airplay, so if you happen to own an Apple TV you can easily stream all the content directly to your HD television. Furthermore, due to "popular demand," SI has included pinch-and-zoom capabilities, so you can get up close and personal with all those beautiful... bikinis. What? You're just checking the labels to see what sort of swimwear to buy your wife, right? Yeah, that's what we'll tell her.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Struts Its Stuff

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Well folks, it is that magical time of year again when the women get their one week to invade the machismo drenched pages of Sports Illustrated.  Aside from being the only issue that was worthy of fathers across the country sprinting towards their mailbox upon delivery day, it also is bound to mark many young boys' transition into manhood.  At risk of heading down a road that most news reporters would turn a blind eye to, this is arguably one of the more titillating pieces of content available in the mainstream print media, so as you can imagine, it is in very high demand.

So how much demand is there, you ask?  How about enough that it seemed worthwhile for Sports Illustrated to invest in bringing the behind the scenes media to an iOS based application.  This is honestly not shocking, especially considering that this is one of the best selling issues of the magazine every year, but does the program make it worth your while?

  • Hundreds of stunning photos with dazzling images from all over the world

  • 40+ videos at launch with more to come in monthly updates

  • Download videos to your iPhone for offline viewing

  • Exclusive, never-before-seen footage only available here

  • Monthly updates with new photos and videos, including Bodypainting!

If you are willing to trudge through the turbulent waters of digitally delivered arousal, and can deal with the consequences, you may be in luck.  However, be aware that the free price tag is only for your first taste and if you want any more of that sweet scantily clad nectar, you will need to pony up an additional $1.99.  So get ready to get your taste of tropical paradise from the palm of your hands.  Those of us in the northern states could really use that right about now.
