What are your favorite apps of 2013?

mac app store

As the year draws to a close, it’s time to begin the deluge of “what was the best/your favorite/most popular x of 2013?” questions that inevitably occur on the internet. So, without further ado, what has been your favorite app or apps of the past year?

There were plenty of releases earlier in the year, though many of those were buried under the sheer number of new and updated apps that came with iOS 7 and the Ive redesign. My personal favorites of the year are:

  • Pocket Casts, because I’m addicted to great podcasts
  • Tweetbot, because Twitter is great, and Tweetbot is the best way to experience it
  • Circa and Alien Blue, because they let me keep up with news (though Alien Blue can be used for a lot more)

What are your favorites? Share them in the comments, and try to include an App Store link so that others can check them out.

Best iPad News Apps of 2013

News on iPad mini

The impending closure of Google Reader on July 1st has forced me to seek out alternative news reader solutions, even if I am admittedly stubborn in doing so. I ultimately decided to permanently setup my iPad mini on my desk as my dedicated news discovery portal. At first, I didn’t think I would be impressed.

But, within just a few hours, I realized that there are quite a few gems on the App Store for tracking headlines, should they be coming from Twitter, traditional RSS feeds or elsewhere. Join me ahead as I walkthrough the best news apps for iPad.
