Click below to check out all the best iPhone and iPad apps you may’ve missed this week.
We're not quite sure how this one got by Apple, but it did. And it works.
AutoCorrector will modify the un-editable onboard dictionary on your iPhone or iPad. If there are shorthand phrases or words you use frequently that always get changed by your device, this app's for you.
Enter in a word you want your device to stop correcting, and tap 'Add to Vocabulary.'
Want works a lot like fan favourite picture-sharer Instagram, except you share images of things that are on your wishlist. We checked out Want earlier this week, and think it could be big.
It's a fun way to share cool stuff you see at the mall or at the Apple Store. You follow others' wants, and a news feed gets generated filled with cool stuff your friends want. It's actually a lot of fun, especially when someone 'also wants' something you've wanted.
Plus, you can share your wants on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Foursquare.
The Financial Times just made a gorgeous HTML 5 app for your iPad and iPhone. It's faster and even has offline reading.
So, HTML 5 is a brand new way to interact with content on a normal website. Essentially, you'll use the app through Mobile Safari, except it'll feel just like an app that finds its home on your iPad.
Bookmark the site to your home screen, and it'll feel just like a real app, except it never needs an update!

Lifelike Craig might be the most creative and fun way to browse Craigslist on your iPhone or iPad.
Craigslist.com is admittedly minimalistic, but this app gives it an inspired old-time skin that keeps things interesting. The app has all the categories you'd expect, and even Google Maps integration to view listings with addresses attached to them.
We all loved kaleiodscopes growing up, and now there's an app for that.
Point your iPhone at anything, and it will turn into a beautiful mess of colours, shapes, and designs. You can alter the amount of sides to the virtual kaleidoscope, and you can save them to your Camera Roll once you're done.
Songkick is the best new way to keep track of when your favourite bands and artists are coming to your city.
The app scans your music library to find stuff you like, so getting started is dead simple.
Wall Street Scanner is a super smart app, and is your new best friend if you're an investor. It doesn't have every stock on the market, but they're working on it.
It's not just a fully featured stock research app, but it even gives you 'Mood' and 'Buzz,' which illustrates how many people are talking about a company on Twitter and if they're reacting positively or negatively to a current event.
The app pulls feeds from over 14,000 sources, 7 million web pages, 9,000 Yahoo and Google-tracked financial analysts, Twitter, analyst upgrades/downgrades, and more, to build an insanely detailed perspective on a company.
Doxo is an Evernote for professionals, helping you keep track of receipts, bills, confidential documents, and even copies of your Passport and driver licence.
You can add documents, receipts, and more via your iPhone's camera, and keep them secure using a secure passcode.
From certain banks and providers (if you're lucky), you can even have bill sent straight to your Doxo account.
When we checked out Evernote Peek earlier this week, we came away pretty impressed.
It's the first of its kind Smart Cover app that will quiz you on languages, trivia, cocktail recipes, and more.
All you need to do is install the app, pick a topic (or create your own study topic), and pick up one edge of the Smart Cover. You'll see a question or word. Flip the lid down, then flip it back up to see the answer.
We already get Thrillist daily emails featuring awesome stuff to do, curated by the dudes at Thrillist.
They just built an iPad app to help you browse the coolest stuff to do in your neighbourhood, all in a unique and interactive interface.
There's a icon-laden map you can refer to, categories to help you find the perfect bar/restaurant/etc, and more.
There are tons of apps like this, so why did we pick it? Because we trust the people at Thrillist to find cool stuff.
