Since it launched in 2008, Apple's App Store has seen 40 billion apps downloaded (excluding updates). Almost half of those were downloaded in 2012 (with two billion downloaded in December alone), and the store now has 775,000 iOS apps available. Now, we know this is a bit of a bold statement, but we reckon that these app thingies might just be catching on.
This week’s crop of popular Apple apps includes one to help you wake up fighting fit and another to help you eat better. Being reckless and irresponsible is always more fun of course. So to balance things out, we’ve also included a new entry that’ll let you live the stuntman dream. Appropriately, it’s a high flyer.
Joe Danger (£1.99)
Joe the stuntman nails the jump from the games console. Responsive controls and Retina 3D graphics impress. One gripe: surely any stuntman worth his salt should have a big, sexy ’tache?
Sleep Cycle alarm clock (£0.69)
Wake up on the right side of the bed. Sleep Cycle monitors your movements and wakes you when you’re in your lightest sleep phase during a 30-minute window. Baffling but brilliant.
