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.

Universal:

Cypress Inheritance by Cypress Inheritance, LLC ($3.99, 315.1 MB): An adventure of mystery, action, and a dash of sci-fi awaits in this first entry of a new saga. Taking the role of Lorna, you’re informed of your grandfather’s death, which puts a vast wealth within reach. However, it will require more than a pen to claim the inheritance. Your initial task is to retrieve priceless paintings from the Cypress Estate mansion, a building protected by the AI-controlled defensive system called Vonya. Can you outsmart this virtual guardian, and quickly? The game is played in first-person view using dual-joysticks in a 3-D environment powered by the Unreal Engine.

P.R.O.B.E. by fludot co. (Free, 56.4 MB): Pitted against a malfunctioning AI, your mission in this somewhat whacky sci-fi puzzler is to retrieve all of the crystals from an advanced space station. Preferably, you should collect the items as efficiently as possible, i.e., the least amount of moves in a maze of corridors and honeycomb-shaped free-roam grid. The game features 20 stages, 200 levels, quirky humor, top-down arcade-style graphics, and Game Center integration.

iPad:

Storied by Motionthink, Inc. (Free, 34.5 MB): Bring some professional and dramatic flare to your stories of family history, an awesome trip, and more by sharing them as a narrated photo slideshow movie using this simple social-networking app. The step-by-step user interface makes it quick and easy to add photos, record the audio, preview, process, and then post to Facebook.

BillTracker for iPad by SnapTap ($2.99, 8.1 MB): Easily keep track and stay reminded of your bills using this expense management tool. For each entry, you have the option to enter in the due amount, due date, full or partial payments, plus enable automatic actions like repeat and auto-paid. Once a bill is entered, you’ll be alerted via push notifications when the due date comes along and can check the status on the built-in calendar. In addition, there’s iCloud integration to allow synchronization of data among several iDevices.
