New iOS Apps, Games and JB Tweaks of the Week: Candy Crush Jelly Saga and more

Codex: The Warrior

Happy New Year and welcome back to our App Recap. This is not only the first App Recap of 2016, but it is also the first full week of new App Store submissions since the winter holiday shutdown, which ended on December 29. Apple this week announced record App Store sales for a two week period ending on Janaury 3. Apple fans spent $1.1 billion on apps and in-app purchases worldwide over the holidays, setting back-to-back weekly records for traffic and purchases. You can read the full press release here.

If you're looking for the new screen grabbing app Vidyo, it has been pulled from the App Store by Apple. It is unknown why the app was pulled, but it was probably because it was a screen recording app. These apps are normally not allowed on the App Store.

Here are this week's most noteworthy games, apps and jailbreak tweaks released to the App Store and Cydia through 01/03/16 to 01/08/16. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep updated on all the latest iPhone and iPad news. Click here for this week's iPad-only App Store releases.
