The Week In Review, August 25 - 31, 2012

Welcome to our Week In Review! Here we'll take a look at some of the great games and apps that embodied our theme this past week, and discuss what's to come in the week ahead.

This week, we here at Best Apps Market celebrated the fact that we're coming out of Summer and heading into Fall with one last week of Fun In the Sun. And for the sports-minded among you, we also noted that it's US Open Championship time! So load yourself up with these apps (if you haven't already) and get out there!

To make sure you're not going to dress for sun and get rained on instead, you'll want to download Weather HD Free, a beautiful app that doesn't just tell you what it's like outside, but shows you, with gorgeously-rendered atmospheric animations. And once you're out there looking for things to do, use Tagwhat to hear what people are saying about the events and businesses near your immediate location. And for all-purpose adventuring, you can't do without your Swiss Army Knife, which presents you with a flashlight, a ruler, a timer, a stop watch, a compass, and a bubble level... because you never know what you'll need out there, you MacGyver, you.

To divert yourself while you're soaking up the sun, keep with the US Open theme and try out Stick Tennis, which takes away the tedium of running and focuses on the return of the ball. For something less combative, you'll enjoy SummitX Snowboarding, which tests your shredding skills as you trick your way down the slopes. And for something completely different, breed and race your own horses in Derby Days; don't assume that you're limited to real life animals!

What's coming up for Best Apps Market? Next week, we're honoring the NFL by focusing on pig-related games and apps; and Labor Day's just around the corner! And don't forget to install our widgets to keep up with our daily Editor's Top AppsTop Games, and Apps of the Day! Have a great weekend! -- Keoni C.
