Wired App Guide: We teamed up with our friends at WIRED magazine to put some order to the sprawling madness of apps. The App Guide is available on newsstands, Wired.com, and of course, as an iPad edition. Inside we've boiled the hundreds of thousands of available apps to the 400 best-including everything from time-burning games to productivity-improving tools. You're welcome.

Instapaper, My Secret Folder, Animoog and More

By Casey Chan on at

Animoog: IMoog has packed that legendary sound into the seriously fun Animoog iPad app. It jams all of its analog cousin's wizardry into an iPad synth that's as intuitive and satisfying to play as the original. The layout is configured much how you'd imagine it-the piano keys are laid out along the bottom on the iPad's screen. Two of the synth's modules-a delay module for example-are visible at any given time. You can adjust settings like speed and frequency. And so much more. 69p.

Our Favourites This Week: Facebook, Real Racing 2 and More

By Casey Chan on at

Facebook: It looks pretty much like the same Facebook iPad app that was previewed in July which means there's a familiar (for those who use the iPad) left-hand column for simple navigation of the News Feed, Photos, Messages, Groups, Apps, Settings, Chat and more. Facebook Photos on the iPad look especially good (something Facebook has trouble with on their website) because they go full screen and can be zoomed in and swiped. Facebook games can also be played full screen and the iPad app supports AirPlay for Facebook videos as well.
