So, The Crew took it upon ourselves to gather up a hand-picked number of five worth installing now, mostly because we’re sure nobody can deny the urge to add new, worthwhile apps whenever they see’em.

Description: “KeyMe is a simple and secure way to store, copy, and share your keys. Store your keys now, thank yourself later.”
The best thing about this bad boy is it makes sure nobody will ever lose a key again. The process is simple: take a snapshot of your keys and it’s sent to KeyMe’s servers and you can order a printed copy of the key to be mailed to you. On the down side though, watch who you let borrow your house and safe keys.
2. Volkswagen SmileDrive™ powered by Google
Description: Volkswagen brings you SmileDrive™, the first social app to maximize fun on every drive, by using your favorite Google products and services along the way.
Google has found another way to follow us around, now while driving. VW SmileDrive is a great app, though. It’s sort of like Nike+ apps, in that it tracks your route, tallies your miles, and even lets you share stats across the Internets. This app works with Android and is advertised for VWs, but can be used with any vehicle.
Download: Google Play
3. MetaCert Safe Browser with Parental Controls
Description: MetaCert is the #1 rated safe iPad browser with parental controls.
The web can be a scary place. Especially for the parents of kids on the net. MetaCert is the tiny company behind the Safe Browser app, and they have your child’s safety in mind. With this iPad app, you can set up limit browsing environments for your seed. With over 660 million sites classified, none will slip the cracks. If if you have certain sites you’d like blocked, it’s done with slick parental controls.
4. YouTube 2.00 with PiP
Description: Catch up on your favorite videos and playlists from around the world on the couch, in the kitchen or on the go.
Google has stepped it up by giving their latest release of YouTube a picture-in-picture feature. No one even asked for it, but this excellent feature is very welcome, allowing mutlitasking and a better YouTube experience overall.
5. Middle Manager of Justice
This freemium strategy game is all the rage in the iOS world right now. If you like super heroes, this one doesn’t really let you be one. Instead, you’re the manager of a office where you hire and organize misfit vigilante to become bona fide super heros.
