Today's Best Apps: Real Basketball, ZoomEdge, Pyracubes And Scientific Calc Elite

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:

ZoomEdge by bitLab ($1.99, 1.6 MB): No matter if it's to help read labels or check your makeup, this magnifier app is ready and able by including three easy to switch modes that utilize both the iSight (rear) and FaceTime (front) cameras of your iDevice. The basic rear camera view offers up to 12x zoom and three lighting options. The split screen iSight view has up to 8x zooming with adjustable panel size and target, plus the three lighting choices. The vanity mirror view provides up to a 4x zoom of your face and even has two lighting selections by inverting the control panel color and adding a white top bar.

Universal:

Real Basketball by Mobil Interaktif (Free, 42.0 MB): Even though it contains good graphics and physics, this virtual basketball shootout experience is extra eye-catching due to the many game choices. First off, there's the strictly solo challenge through fast-paced Time Trial and Tournament modes as well as casual Arcade and Single Ball modes in two choices of difficulty. Once you've earned enough currency and experience, check into the online area for real-time head-to-head competitions against a friend or stranger. Eight auto-matched rooms exist to pair similarly skilled players for a set wager and reward. Because you play the court simultaneously, there's the pressure of watching your opponent's performance and shot timing to avoid problematic ball collisions. In addition, the game includes Facebook integration for inviting friends and sharing accomplishments.

Pyracubes by Clockwork Pixels (Free, 19.6 MB): Ignite those neurons and prove your problem solving skill against people across the world in this challenging block sliding puzzler. Commanding a flying beetle, you must connect all of the same colored fiery stones to unlock their power. Both fortunately and regrettably, like energy blocks bond when contacting one another to form a single movable object. In addition, there are other elements to consider, such as bombs for destroying walls and small bricks for linking. The game features vibrant 3-D graphics, 160 total levels across four level packs, as well as Game Center achievements and leaderboard. The 10 tutorial and 40 Easy levels are provided at no cost, whereas the Classic and Tricky level packs are available for $0.99 via in-app purchase.

Scientific Calc Elite by Cyberprodigy LLC ($1.99, 8.7 MB): With fraction support and a built-in converter tool, this scientific calculator even trumps Apple's very functional app provided to iPhone owners and also works on iPad. No matter which iDevice you're using, every key is within view and quickly accessible, including landscape orientation when working on your tablet.
