Welcome to another week and another roundup of apps. We've got software that's going to make your trips around town quicker, spice up your emoticon-laden texting conversations, keep track of your favorite eSports team, track all your quirky habits (smartphone or otherwise), and seriously step up your Instagram game.
If you've been spending too much time in bars lately—and we certainly hope you have been—you've likely noticed the rise of barrel-aged cocktails.
