On this beautiful iPhone 4S and iOS 5.0-filled Saturday, we’ve collected the best apps you missed this week.We have a great new chat app for iPad, an excellent GPS navigation app for only a buck, Apple’s new movie trailers app, plus much more.

Verbs for iPad is the best looking chat client

Verbs was already one of our favourite chat clients for iPhone, and now it's on iPad.

While Verbs doesn't boast a ton of features, it does a great job hooking up to Google Talk, AIM, and Facebook Chat, and presents it all in a beautiful simplified manner.

Verbs doesn't include Push Notifications by default, but if you get the $4.99 in-app purchase, you can stay online for up to 10 days at a time and get pushed messages. This is still cheaper than BeeJiveIM.

Teleportd aims to teleport you to any place in the world

Teleportd is a location-based image browser that lets you pick a place anywhere in the world (including where you are), and check out every location-tagged picture that has been taken there.

These pictures are from Instagram, Foursquare, Twitter, and PicPlz, so you're sure to find some good representations of the place you're checking out.

Ghost Guitar is for the air guitar rock star in you

Ever tried to play air guitar? We all have.

Apple's Find My Friends app is everything Google Latitude wanted to be.

Find My Friends can be a bit creepy, but once you realise that you can enable 'temporary' friends, tracking people doesn't seem so strange.

In fact, it's brilliant. Apple built this app to help you find your close friends and family members, and we've tried it. It works.

Facebook for iPad finally launched, years late.

It's the world's most downloaded app, and now it's on iPad featuring a brand new interface.

It's one dollar, for life, for great turn by turn directions and location-based food recommendations.

AirPort Utility takes the Mac out of setting up your AirPort router

AirPort Utility is proof that Apple really is trying to 'cut the cord' and let you use your iPhone or iPad to do just about anything.
