Today's Best Apps: Par Tribus And Time Planner

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


TIME Planner by Vladimir Yanov (Free, 27.4 MB): Analyze and enhance your productivity with this comparative task management app. Quite obvious, the big problem regarding schedules is time estimation. Sure, meetings and the like may be precise, such as from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., but most other events and actions aren't so easy of a time target. However, success relies upon sticking to the schedule, if not, tasks will be pushed back and back and back, eventually squeezing the last one or so into an incapable period. To help, Time Planner forces you to face your efficiency, or lack thereof by marking both the planned and actual start and end times. For example, you planned to start cleaning the garage at 9 a.m. and set aside two hours, but you actually did the task from 9:30 until noon. So, you missed that target and are now behind. Well, one time may not cause a big issue, but multiple mess-ups could be psychologically painful, therefore, you'll want to make longterm assessments and changes. No problem, just tap the menu button at the top-left and check your performance and distribution using statistic gauges and pie charts, then judge and adjust accordingly. As for further features, the app includes push notifications, export ability, plus Calendar and social network integration. Upgrade to the Pro version for $2.99 to unlock iCloud sync support, category editing, and alert customization.


Par Tribus: simple, smart, slide puzzle by Denki (Free, 4.1 MB): This Rubik's Cube-inspired casual match-3 puzzler offers a great way to exercise the mind and pass the time. Unlike similar challenges, your goal is to eliminate as many tiles at once, but within a finite number of otherwise unrestricted moves rather than rapidly within a particular time window. Therefore, matches aren't automatically submitted, that is, until all of those moves get used up or you want to gain the current points and initiate a cascade for new tiles. In addition, completely clearing the board rewards 10 bonus moves and you can get some assistance using three single use actions: undo, extra move, and shuffle. The games features minimalistic 2-D graphics, simple sound effects, three aforementioned power-ups, as well as Game Center achievements and leaderboard.
