Dip Desperado £Free

Chip flicking – an ancient (and we very much think fictional) sport from Mexico – involves chucking tortilla chips into a pot of dip. Marketing ploy by Doritos, you say? See if the 70,000 prizes (including a trip to Orlando) will take the edge off that cyncism.

London Bike Rides £1.79

If you ever fancy a break from the smog of city-living without creating more of it by driving, help is at hand. London Bike Rides has cycle routes about the big smoke allowing you to filter by difficulty, terrain, traffic or type. There are scenic training sessions or pub crawls (there's an option to go via cake shops) and you can watch a video of your route before you head out. Or instead, if you're feeling lazy.

Street Fighter IV Volt £3.99

Yes, we’ve had Street Fighter games before. What we haven’t had is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support that allows two-player mode against your mates – or total randoms around the globe you want to give a lesson in sonic booming lesson to.

Bus Mapper £1.19

Here at last – a bus route planner for London residents and tourists alike. Until now the only way to plan a journey was doing searches online, reading bus timetables in stations or – God forbid! – talking to actual humans. Now you can get lost anywhere in the land-of-Boris and find your own way home without having to interact with a single scurrying Londoner.

PhotoToaster £1.19

As picture editing tools go, this is hot. Get it? Toast? Hot? Oh, forget it. You can see adjustments instantly, the UI is simple and intuitive and there are 16 settings to tweak. All that and it’s 33 per cent off at the moment, so snap it up. Get it? Camera? Snap? Oh forget it.
