Kelly Sullivan July 4, 2013

It’s summer time and­­––for most of us­­––that means having little extra time on our hands. Looking for something to keep your thumbs busy on the 4th of July long weekend?! Here are the top ten trending apps that iPhone users have been downloading this week.

10. Nick (Entertainment)

Now that school is out, you may need to find a little distraction for the kids in your down time. This app is targeted at “kids and kids-at-heart” and features original videos, games, animated shorts, and more. While targeted for kids, we’re pretty sure that Mom and Dad can have fun too. 🙂

9. Can You Escape (Game)
This game challenges you to solve puzzles and find hidden objects in order to make it though eight rooms and two bonus rooms. Even the description boasts its addictiveness—see for yourself! Watch out crazy birds, you had your reign as app king!

8. Ask.fm (Social Networking)
The mobile adaptation of the question-based social network, this app lets you ask and answer questions based on interests. You can stay notified anytime via push notifications.

7. Battery Saver (Utilities)
If you think your iPhone’s battery doesn’t last long enough, join the millions of users who swear by this app, and say it can improve your battery life by more than 30 percent. Battery Save is ranked number seven overall, but is consistently the number one utility app.

6. Google Maps (Navigation)
Lose the atlas, say good-bye to the bulky GPS device, and streamline your life with Google Maps. Search for places, get directions, or even have audio navigation guide you along your way. We also have to give a shout out to the super awesome Waze app as well…!

5. Vine (Social Networking)
Record short, looping videos and share them with your friends and fans on Facebook and Twitter. Explore, discover, and interact with others by searching for hashtags. If you’re not on Vine yet, you’ll be left out of conversations! (in San Francisco at least)

4. Escape If you Can (Games)
Defeat puzzles in each level to advance through to the next floor. Currently, it has nine levels and more are promised to be coming soon.

3. Candy Crush Saga (Games)
Yes, we know what you may think… Isn’t this a Facebook game? Relax! Enter the colorful, sugary world of block-busting fun. Match candies and complete challenges to advance through the seemingly endless levels. Facebook integration allows you to compete against your friends’ scores and to share extra lives.

2. Sprinkle: Water splashing fire fighting fun! (Games)
In this fun game with 72 levels of increasing difficulty, spray water to extinguish fires. It’s easily addicting, and best of all, free for this week only. Give it a try for yourself, or let one of your kids take a turn.
