Today's Best Apps: Seene And Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold Bug

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. 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:

Seene by Obvious Engineering (Free, 7.2 MB): Have fun creating and sharing interactive images with this simple 3-D modeling app. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then how much is one that you can see from multiple angles? Maybe it's just one, "cool!" From wristwatches to staged battle scenes and beyond, the app uses intelligent tracking alongside your dexterous photo shooting ability to map out a scene through the iPhone's 2-D camera. The process is simple, yet finicky as you capture objects by slowly circulating around a focal point, sort of a reverse fisheye approach. If completed properly, the final image may be zoomed and panned using two fingers to simulate moving your head up and down, side-to-side, or closer and farther to get a better view. With the requirement of hosting the renderings on Seene's servers, it only make sense that the company has created a micro-social network around the idea. So, like Vine, Instagram, etc, you can display masterpieces on the service for others to marvel, praise, and discuss, plus grab more attention by posting a link on Twitter and Facebook. The app features minimalistic flat graphics, as well as profile, personal feed, and discovery sections. Try the app at no risk, including captures, and then register a free account to unlock the full experience.
