Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. Disney sequel Where's My Water? 2 makes the biggest splash due the series' enduring popularity, but the week is otherwise largely dominated by fresh fare like first-person shooter Dead Effect, the camera-enabled Go Dance, and charming low-key puzzler Strata.
We're a week into the new NFL season, and already we've had surprises, intrigue, and high-scoring affairs – in other words, football is back in full swing. Most sports fans probably already have a score-checking app of choice, likely set to alert you with each scoring drive or change of possession, but if you want to stay truly plugged into the league beyond just the weekly numbers, you'll need a few more apps in your arsenal. Here are eight apps that can help you follow all of the action this season.
Many people consider the electric glow of a smartphone or tablet screen during a movie an intolerable annoyance, but Apple seems to be actively encouraging it with the upcoming release of The Little Mermaid: Second Screen Live. As reported by /Film (via MacRumors), viewers of the upcoming feature will be able to interact with the film through an iPad app that lets them sing along with the show, play games, and somehow interact with the characters.

Steve Jobs may have instilled Apple's executives with his design philosophies, but there's one thing he couldn't pass on: showmanship.
Whenever he walked onstage, you could feel Jobs' cadence, from his rhythmic pacing to punctuated speech. Like a great concert, it never felt rehearsed, but he hit every mark with precision. There have been plenty of great Apple products unveiled when Jobs wasn't on the stage--iMac G5, iPhone 5, iPad mini, iOS 7, even today's iPhone 5S--but despite the jokes and cheers, it never feels quite like it used to, when the lights dimmed and the master appeared.
Getting your iPhone’s battery to last all day can be a challenge. We’ve all got chargers stashed around work, home, and our vehicles, but, obviously, none of those are very helpful when you’re nowhere near a power connector. By tossing the Powerskin PoP’n in your bag, you can effectively double your iPhone 5 battery life. Since it’s not a form-fitting case, the PoP’n will also charge other lightning-port-equipped devices.
Judging from a patent filing recently discovered by AppleInsider, it looks as though the rumors that the iPhone 5S's fingerprint sensor could support payment options might be true after all. Originally analysts believed that the fingerprint-payment feature was a little too advanced for the upcoming release, but AppleInsider's research shows that Apple had such an idea in mind all the way back in March of 2012.
Like music? Then you should head over to iTunes right after reading this.

Normally this is the kind of thing you only find on Amazon, so you should take advantage of it while you can if you like to download all your music through iTunes.
Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store.
