Looking for a new app this weekend? Here are ten great new apps for the iPhone and iPad that you may want to check out!
This free app lets you join in with the Steam gaming community on your iPhone, though chats, news stores and the various groups. Free.

A free music discovery radio app that requires a premium Spotify account. Personalize radio stations to your tastes, skip through songs and stream music over Wi-Fi, 3G and AirPlay. Free.
