The new year is well underway and everyone’s already debating who’s got the best app for the year. Which ones from last year will last through this year? And which ones won’t?

Judging by the statistics, it’s quite clear that the success of casino games has skyrocketed. It’s more than clear that a lot of people enjoying gambling while on the move.

This article will run through the top ten essential apps for this year.

10. 101 Great Goals.com

This app is an absolute must-have for any footie fan. An offshoot from the popular footie video site, the app lines up all the Premier League goals for you to watch, one after the other, in a blaze of glory.

9. The Walking Dead: Assault

After a very rocky start, The Walking Dead television series on AMC has made it quite clear that the zombies aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. This has been reflected in the series’ latest ventures into video games, with apps included. The game is relatively unrelated, but quite fun.

8. British Airways Inspiration

If you’re tired of websites that constantly attempt to coerce you to go to somewhere ‘sunny’, try the new BA app for your phone. After entering when you want to travel and what type of holiday you want to have, it will helpfully make some suggestions, along with cheapest ways of getting there.

7. THX Tune-Up

Incredibly useful for a free app, THX Tune-Up basically helps you set up your TV and speakers in a room by assisting with positioning information. It also connects all the devices together, while tuning their settings.

6. Half-Inch Heist

If you’re in a silly mood, look no further. This game, from Mutant Labs, involves you trying to retrieve a diamond back from the evil Dr. Puss, making for a beautiful homage to retro gaming.

5. Anycabs

With this app, instead of cursing at the moon when you can’t find a minicab late at night, you can search through hundreds of different licensed minicab companies and book cabs, too.

4. Gangster Granny 2: Madness

If Half-Inch Heist didn’t do it for you, perhaps Gangster Granny 2 will. Yes, it does what it says on the tin – it features pensioners wielding all kinds of assault rifles. What more can you want?

3. Amplitube Jimi Hendrix

This one is pretty expensive, but it’s really quite fun, particularly if you play guitar and you’re a fan of Hendrix. Plug in your guitar to this emulator and you can recreate the very same Hendrix sound, with access to his studio and various pedals.

2. Fighting Fantasy: House of Hell

A throwback to retro dice-rolling gaming, it’s a steal for anyone who can remember the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks from the 1980s.

1. Star Trek App

Unfortunately only available in the US at the moment, this app has been released in the run-up to the sequel of the remake, and will have trekkies running around the country looking for billboards to snap among other viral games and competitions.
