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:

Repix – Remix & Paint Photos by Sumoing Ltd (Free, 24.1 MB): Rather than applying an effect or filter to an entire photo, this image editing app allows selective changes using marker-style smart brushes. Even though the selection includes common choices, such as cartoonize and sepia, there are plenty of unique options like star and flare stampers, a sparkle stream creator, and a Vincent van Goh brush. Nine brushes, excluding the undoer and eraser, are provided for free with the entire set of 21 available for $4.99. In addition, the app offers overall image color adjustments and cropping, plus Facebook, Twitter Tumblr, and Apple Photo Stream integration.

MAYDAY! Emergency Landing by Reludo (Free, 29.9 MB): This flight simulator will give you a new perspective on turbulence. From wind and low visibility to system failures, there’s a lot that a pilot must be prepared for. Now, discover just how well you’d do in the cockpit. Each mission consists of a dangerous scenario during approach. You have full control of the aircraft, despite some equipment and tower guidance, and the critical responsibility to land it safely. The game features 40 missions, tilt and touch controls, star rating and points system, as well as a Game Center leaderboard and achievements. The first two missions are free with the remaining priced at $4.99.

Totems by Timecode ($0.99, 115.6 MB): Inspired by RIsk, Carcassonne, and a few others, this strategy board game is easy to learn, challenging, plus offers quick and efficient play. The goal is to claim more land than your opponent by erecting snake, lion, and elephant totems. The significance of the animals, beyond anything spiritual, involves inner-species dominance. For example, a snake totem will overtake all adjoining snake territories. It’s utilizing this characteristic that players can create an advantage. The game offers three play modes: solo agains the AI, local multiplayer using two iDevices, and online versus a friend or stranger via Game Center.
