f you haven’t been too busy filling out a bracket or obsessively watching games this week, you may have noticed that there’s an app out there to help you keep track of what’s going on in the sports world. If your kids are getting out for spring break this week, you may need the distraction. With that said, here are the most popular apps of the week.

Temple Run: Oz comes in first place this week, and hot on its coattails is WhatsApp, yet again. Minecraft is in third place, and it seems its golf season because golf apps are taking over—in fourth place is Super Stickman Golf. Finally in fifth place this week is Ridiculous Fishing-A Tale of Redemption.

NCAA March Madness Live is unsurprisingly in first place this week, helping people keep track of their favorite teams. MiniGolf MatchUp is in second place, and following it is ESPN Bracket, another unsurprising favorite. Candy Crush Saga is in fourth place, and rounding out the top five is 4 Pics 1 Word.
Timehop is a free app that links in with your other social media account profiles and shows you what you were up to on this day last year—or two years ago, or three years ago…you get the idea. It’s not entirely useful for much, but it’s entertaining to see what you were doing on this day on a given year.

This app will be a favorite among anyone who takes every opportunity to turn throwing trash away into a basketball game. It’s a game that’s based on doing just that, in an office setting. “Annoy your coworkers,” the game suggests. Prizes are doled out in the form of vending machine candy.
