The App Store takes delivery of hundreds of new apps per day. The overwhelming scene makes it possible to easily overlook an exciting game, valuable productivity suite, etc. However, we have a solution. Today’s Best Apps tackles this problem by providing you with a handpicked and tested list of apps that are truly worth your consideration each and everyday.

iPhone:

The app syncs via Toodledo and allows backups to be sent through email.

NewNote by apfelsine ($0.99, 7.7 MB): This middle of the road note-taking app maintains very simple text input, yet allows the addition of photos, reminder alerts, and location. In addition, notes are organized using folders and can be password protected at the root level.

Shortcuts+ by Andrey Yurchik (Free, 3.5 MB): Here’s an educational and handy reference tool to better utilize your iOS, OS X, and Windows devices.
