iTunes Connect is off duty this week, so there are no new apps or updates being published until the weekend. In the meantime, we've got a heaping helping of great new apps worth checking out while developers are on break, including slick new ways to email or text, a better way to Instagram, how to find out where Apple Pay can be used, a new third-party keyboard, and much more! We'll be taking a break next week, so check back with us after the first of the year, and a happy holidays to all!

Eight (technically nine!) of the best and brightest are just a click away!

At this writing, it's only been 48 hours since Apple's big media event on Tuesday, which means we're entering that phantom zone before iOS 8 and the new iPhone 6 models are actually available.
