It's not exactly video, and not exactly animated GIFs, but Vine ($Free) is certainly interesting. This new Twitter-backed service allows users to record and share looping 6-second videos, complete with audio, comments, and the requisite hashtags. Use it to show friends and followers your daily commute, a particularly spectacular sunset, your playful new kitty, or even your new dildo. We wish we were joking.

  • Google Maps App

    Sick of Apple's less-than-perfect Maps in iOS 6? Your unlikely hero has arrived. The Google Maps App ($Free) is here to restore the big G maps you've been missing to your iPhone or iPod touch. Of course, it's not just a rehash of what you used to have, either, as it sports an all-new, improved interface, 2D and 3D views, and the holy grail of Maps, voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation. What are you waiting for? Just download it already.

  • Bold Poker

    Take away the house advantage at your weekly poker game with Bold Poker ($2). This ingenious little app runs on iOS and lets you replace your standard deck of cards with an iPad and a bunch of iPhones or iPod touches. Each Hold'em player views their cards on a separate device, while an iPad in the middle keeps track of the board cards and automatically re-deals when you move the dealer button. It may handle betting, but at least it can't be accused of stacking the deck. [via]
