Talk about a case of the Mondays! The New Year has arrived, and we've got a great collection of apps to divert your attention away from work or school after two weeks of holiday slumber. This week's New App Recap features a new way to use iOS devices as a second Mac display, view Instagram feeds on an iPad, shoot 4K video, sticker Facebook Messenger missives, command the music at your next party, and sell videos to the world. Sit back and bask in our New Year Edition, starting right now!
We're still groggy from Labor Day weekend, but that hasn't stopped us from lining up a spectacular recap of all the cool new apps that hit the App Store last week. In just a few clicks, you can be creating cooler time-lapse videos than ever before, making presentations on the go, and even sending or receiving money within seconds. Without further ado, let's dive into this week's New App Recap!
Videos created by Twitter-owned Vine may only be six seconds long, hardly enough to entertain let alone titillate -- but apparently for roughly one percent of its users, that's plenty enough for a quick blast of smut.

Putting off the purchase of your next automobile because Apple has yet to unleash iOS in the Car? An enterprising developer cobbled together a video of how the service might work using the current version of iOS 7.
Can it really be that we're at the end of 2013 and Yahoo-owned Flickr is only now getting around to allowing users to embed their photos into websites? That appears to be the case, but better late than never.
Why should the iPhone have all the fun? New Instapaper owners Betaworks have debuted the latest version of the popular read-later app, which now brings feature parity with the iPad even as rival Pocket teases their next big version.
