Today's Best Apps: TruSloMo And Tough Nuts Pinball

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:

TruSloMo by William Wu (Free, 1.9 MB): Only for iPhone 5s, this video processing tool lets you do mo' with the slo-mo. In other words, one simple additional step creates a version of your slow motion video that maintains the effect when imported by apps such as iMovie, Instagram, or even file transfer programs. So, what steps do you need to take? After creating a slow motion scene using Apple's Camera app, switch to TruSloMo, tap the Save button and select the video you just made, then voila! The original video is copied but with the time altering effect embedded into the file.

Universal:

Tough Nuts Pinball by Wyse Games LTD (Free, 28.9 MB): Experience the arcade classic at a new level with this well crafted Pinball collection. At first glance, the machines look completely standard, featuring a themed interactive environment of models, lights, and sounds where contacting specific objects awards points and striking certain areas multiple times causes exponential rewards. However, players, especially dexterous ones, will get even more enjoyment through an actual action-based kind of story. For example, in Fire Reaper, you must first knock down the five "Danger" wall panels to gain access to the water pump and begin Firefight mode. Next, you must dial 911 but going over the number pads in the correct order, then hit the bumpers to rotate the ladder over the building and begin the extinguishing. Bonus missions include venting toxic gas from a room at the appropriate time and getting to the trauma center to extend firefighting mode. The game features 3-D graphics, dynamic camera, intense soundtrack, two tables, plus local high score boards and achievements. Both tables are free-to-play with occasional advertisements, which are disabled after any in-app purchase. Bags of disposal virtual coins are available for $0.99 to $2.99, although, unlimited access can be unlocked for $1.99 per table or $2.99 combined.
