Whether it's Apple and their 500 000 strong app list or Microsoft's 70 000 applications, there are scores of mini-programs available for smartphones these days.
So join us as we look at our favourite applications of the week, ranging from games to useful programs.
This neat Android and iOS game by OMGPOP has taken the world by storm, thanks to its social-orientated multiplayer gameplay.
Available in both free and premium flavours, Draw Something tasks players with drawing a word, with another player then guessing it. So for example, the game could task you with drawing 'zoo', with players then drawing whatever they think a zoo looks like.
This neat Windows Phone/Android app joins the swelling ranks of news aggregation programs out there, however it has one key difference.
Flud places an emphasis on the social aspect of news, letting users share stories as well. The fact that there's a pleasant user interface only sweetens the deal.
The iOS classic finally comes to Android devices, bringing more "endless-running" goodness to the Google Play store.
Temple Run has you on the run from a bunch of monsters, having to swipe and tilt to avoid obstacles. And the fact that it's free means that there's no reason not to pick it up.
Angry Birds Space
The latest version of Rovio's chart-topping Angry Birds series takes to the stars, featuring gimmicks like zero gravity and all sorts of other antics.
Angry Birds Space is a freemium title too, with dozens of levels available for free at first. So, users have nothing to lose by going for it.
Social network/pinboard Pinterest has grown at a ridiculous pace since its launch in 2010, with an official app making its way to the iPhone in recent months.
However, when it comes to other platforms, there have been no real official apps to speak of. Windows Phone users can make use of Pinsperation to get their pin on while Android owners can use Pinterest for All and Photo to Pinterest.
