| Paid Apps.
We've apparently taken a trip to the past this week because number one in the paid apps is Words With Friends, the Scrabble dupe that everyone loves. In second is Emoji 2, which, let's face it, is probably the best useless app you'll ever download. It lets you send tiny pictures of clip art to your friends in text messages. In third is Rayman Jungle Run, a fun game, and holding steady in fourth is WhatsApp Messenger, which we have to predict won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Finally is Wipeout.
| Free Apps.
This week's free apps are a little different than the paid ones. In first place we have YouTube, which makes us think yet again that this must be a blast from the past. In second is the newfangled invention, Podcasts (again, kidding, because podcasts have been around for a long time). Third place goes to the ever-so-creepy Find My Friends, which allows you to locate your friends and family who are using iDevices (but you have to ask their permission to get their location). Most notable of this week's top five is the fourth place winner, iTunes U, which gives users access to college courses as well as some of the reading material—pretty cool stuff. Finally, Find My iPhone is in fifth.
| Assistive Touch.
Now that the new iPhone is out, those of you who may have been waiting to get a new phone have the chance to upgrade. But if you're still undecided and your current phone is dying, check out the not-quite-app Assistive Touch. When your buttons have stopped working, this app lets you have full functionality thanks to buttons on the touch screen to replace the ones that aren't working. It's more of a setting than an app, but it'll help you out nonetheless.
Passbook was included in the iOS6 update, and what it does is lets you store apps that hold your boarding passes, movie/event tickets, store gift/loyalty cards, and coupons all in once place. Basically, it's an app like that little pocketbook thing everyone's mom had in her purse—you know, the one with the zipper or snap that was bursting with clipping and tickets? Yeah, it's like that.
