On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are this week’s picks.

iOS Apps/Updates

Crayola is expanding its digital portfolio to include Crayola Create and Play. Designed for kids ages three to five, the free app features “STEAM-inspired content and interactive activities that are thoughtfully designed to spark kids' imaginations and help them develop beneficial skills such as learning logic, coding, dexterity, cause and effect, caring for pets, color theory and more.”
