Story 1.0.1 (Free) - Story by Disney is an app that automatically gathers pictures and videos together based on time (not unlike iPhoto's Events view) and lets users collage them into a "story" with text, backgrounds, titles and themes. The stories can be shared to invited friends and family on, embedded on websites or shared to email or Facebook. The story collage is synced to iCloud for future viewing and editing.

Facebook Pages Manager 2.0 (Free) - Facebook has updated their separate Pages Manager app for speed, using much more native code for better performance. Scrolling through the timeline is faster, and now photos open faster and close with a downward swipe. The update also includes posting photos with auto-enhancement or filters (presumably from Facebook's purchase of Instagram), and the Messages component can now send stickers and emoji.

Paper 1.3.1 (Free) - Paper is a freestyle sketching and drawing app that uses a sketchbook metaphor and an expressive set of touch-control pens (additional pens and other tools are available through in-app purchases). The new update brings a built-in feed called "Made With Paper" that shows off posted examples from random users. In addition, there is now a zoom function for more detailed work, and the app's Ink Engine has now been rewritten to use OpenGL, which will enhance rendering speed. [Download - 48MB]

Pulse 3.1 (Free) - Pulse is a news-aggregating app that pulls stories from blogs, newspapers, social networks and magazines the user selects, and presents thumbnails of posts that can be expanded. The new version increases the options for saving marked stories to other places and formats, including send to SMS, Pocket, Evernote and Instapaper. In addition, reflecting the recent acquisition of Pulse by LinkedIn, stories can now also be shared with business network LinkedIn. [Download - 33.8MB]

Amazon Cloud Player 2.1 (free) - Amazon Cloud Player provides users with mobile access to their entire Amazon music library. All music can be streamed directly from the cloud, or downloaded to the device for offline playback. Version 2.1 now offers support for Ford Sync on the iPhone and iPod touch, and also includes an improved experience when adding songs to a playlist. Finally, VoiceOver support has received a number of improvements. [Download - 10.8MB]

RunKeeper 3.3 (free) - Through the use of the location services found in the iPhone RunKeeper can track a users fitness activity. The application turns the GPS data into stats such as distance travelled, how long it took, how many calories were burned, and more. New support for tracking stats with a Pebble watch has been added in this release, along with six new localizations. [Download - 20.9MB]
