This year truly has been the year of the app. With iPhone, Android and tablets becoming the gadgets of the future, apps have exploded onto the scene with pretty much everything you could ask for.
Games, news, marketing, social networking, photography and more are available either free or paid for in app stores, and the more the merrier! No doubt next year will see a whole new breed of apps, but in the meantime here are some of the top apps of 2013.

Zite - One of the top aggregation apps available on iPad, provides up to date and constant news depending on your selected interests. The app is also excellent for sharing on Twitter as it shortens the url for you.
