Who wants some free apps? While not everything in this week's New App Recap qualifies, we've got a pretty great assortment of freebies to brighten up your Monday, starting with the updated Microsoft Office apps, now optimized for iPhone.

Apple's big media event is almost upon us, but before you get distracted by shiny new toys, we've got another great roundup of new and updated apps that started touching down in the App Store over the last week.

This week's New App Recap has a clear focus on reinvention, as several apps in our lineup have been rebooted, refreshed, or otherwise reinvented with new versions that offer a fresh new look and feel.

Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Whether you’ve found a file through searching for it in the Terminal, or just want to open a document in a native Mac application for editing, then the open command is for you.

This means that you don’t have to tinker with learning a new Terminal program to quickly edit your files, if you choose.
