Here are a few of our favorite picks from the last week, just in case you missed them.

1. This free kids’ app is so amazingly simple, which is exactly why we (and our kids) love it.

2. Which app does Angela from The Office use to keep her daughter entertained on the plane? Hint: it’s not a cat calendar.

3. One of our favorite apps goes to the web, finally. Whoo!

4. If you’re already holiday shopping for gadgets, this site is going to save you plenty of money and trouble.

5. Like we needed another reason to love Ikea. Look at this groundbreaking new gadget!
