Today's Best Apps: Beat The Traffic And Tower Dwellers

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


Beat the Traffic by Pelmorex Media Inc. (Free, 14.1 MB): This sleek crowd-sourced navigation tool will help ease your travels. When it comes to traffic problems, there are a few factors worth monitoring: road construction, weather, and accidents. In addition to these three issues, which are represented by color accented icons, the map also provides public viewable transportation camera feeds. So, now you can actually see the degree of congestion rather than just interpret the conditions via brief descriptions and basic details. Similar to apps such as Waze, most of the data is updated regularly, at times even instantly, by other users, maybe including you. Beyond the area overview, the app, of course, offers turn-by-turn assistance. The feature includes multiple route options, the ability to add in between stops, color-coded enroute traffic level depictions, and smart rerouting when conditions change. Further app functionality consists of trip logging and manual location saving for easy revisiting, nearby alerts in an informative list view, as well as camera bookmarking. A free email-based account or Facebook link is required for full functionality.


Tower Dwellers by Eccentricity ($3.99, 129.4 MB): Show off those commanding skills in this tower defense-style real-time strategy role-playing game. Malevolent creatures have infested the land, but with your direction they shall do not succeed. Erect castle-like towers and deploy the warriors, then add cottage-housed craftsman to enhance battle capabilities. Instruct and assist the littler fighters with drags and drops, such as pounding the enemy using powerful chicken brain onslaughts. The game features hand-drawn 3-D graphics, charming instrumental soundtrack, 11-stage non-linear campaign, four interconnectable and upgradeable building types, three unit classes, three auto-regenerative power-ups, standard and 2x accelerated play speed, cleverly combined star rating and ability upgrade system, plus Game Center achievements.
