Today's Best Apps: Run Hero And Sudoku

he 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. Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls

iPhone:

Run Hero - GPS Running, Cycling, Walking and Fitness Tracker by Storeboughtmilk LLC ($0.99, 10.0 MB): Even though summer is nearing the end, there's still time to get and stay in-shape using this walk, run, or bicycle ride tracking fitness app. Likely familiar to most and easy to operate, the user interface resembles many GPS navigation apps. At the top are the music controls, to the right the menu system, the bottom quarter reserved for statistics, and a map taking up the remaining space. Better yet, whether in your pocket or mounted on your bike handlebars, the custom lock screen offers key stats and presents unexpected input. Beyond tracking, the app features voice announced progress at your choice of intervals, allows connection to a couple of CrossFit Workout of the Day apps, plus offers route logging and exportation via email to invite others or just give a fun and safe path suggestion. If you don't yet have a routine, start any of the included workouts to help you accomplish anything from a 5k to a full marathon.

Universal:

sudoku™ by cao yulong (Free, 33.0 MB): If you're a fan of the classic logic-based puzzler and don't yet have a go-to app, then this simple digital version will be a fine choice to stimulate those neurons. Along with being portable, there's no recurring costs as every board is dynamically generated and suited for differently skilled players. The game features colorful 2-D graphics, four difficulty level choices, an optional scratch entry mode, statistics, Game Center leaderboards, as well as the occasional pop-up ad.
