Games are always popular, so let's start with those.
Dots is a hot new game -- much like the popular Candy Crush, and it's free.
If you're willing to pay 3 bucks for a game, Ridiculous Fishing is great for smartphone users.
iPad users might like Sword and Sworcery. It will cost you 2 bucks, but is supposed to be extremely original and engaging.
There's so much more to the app world than just games.
Consider these for the iPhone.
Fantastical 2 is a great app for creating a far better calendar than the one that comes with your device. It's 2 bucks right now.
Level sets up a daily, weekly and monthly budget for you, and it's free.
Now for you Android users.
1Weather is free and improves the very average weather experience that comes in the device.
Swiftkey 4 is a gesture based keyboard. Once you learn it, it is faster and more accurate than screen tappping -- 2 dollars.
If you have cash to burn, try Traktor DJ or How to Cook Everything. The first will let you mix music like a pro, the second is self explanatory. Both cost 10 dollars.
