Today's Best Apps: FIFA Official App And Nowsfeed

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:

FIFA Official App by FIFA (Free, 21.8 MB): Finally, follow the world football, a.k.a. soccer or fútbol, news straight from the authoritative source via this official International Federation of Association Football app. Start off with the global highlights by panning through the large image preview provided general news section, then perhaps move onto the FIFA World Cup schedule and stats. Next, check the current standings on the FIFA Rankings board, and, last but absolutely not least, the details of your favorite teams and competitions, including live game data, in the Match Center. The app features a flat and clean iOS 7-style user interface, the option to disable automatic refresh when on cellular connections, and auto-propagation of the local teams and competitions if allowed access to your current location.

Universal:

Nowsfeed by Guillermo Cique (Free, 1.6 MB): This minimalistic RSS reader will help you stay aware of the latest news from your favorite providers. At the bottom is a small and simple toolbar offering quick switching among the inbox, read it later bin, archive filing lists, already read pile, and settings (the three vertical dots). Adding, by URL or searching, and managing feeds is done via the settings areas, so you'll want to begin there. In addition, it would be efficient to set other preferences at this point, namely the black on white or white on black Light or Dark color scheme and whether you prefer an extra large or small thumbnails in the Nowsfeed. Since general navigation should be self-explanatory, I'll just skip ahead to organization. While reading an article, just tap the appropriate button on the bottom toolbar to mark it as read, green checkmark, move it to the read later section, yellow clock, send it to the archive, purple list, or share it. Alternatively though, you may do the same actions from within the Nowsfeed using gestures: mid-rightward swipe for read or full to delete and mid-leftward push for later or full to push it into an archive list. The app also features an icon badge notifying unread articles, Instapaper and Readability integration, as well as landscape support when utilized on iPad.

iPad:

FIFA for iPad by FIFA (Free, 44.9 MB): Finally, follow the world football, a.k.a. soccer or fútbol, news straight from the authoritative source via this official International Federation of Association Football app. Start off with the global highlights by panning through the large image preview provided general news section, then perhaps move onto the FIFA World Cup schedule and stats. Next, check the current standings on the FIFA Rankings board, and, last but absolutely not least, the details of your favorite teams and competitions, including live game data, in the Match Center. The app features a flat and clean iOS 7-style user interface, the option to disable automatic refresh when on cellular connections, and auto-propagation of the local teams and competitions if allowed access to your current location.
