Tadaa SLR ($3.99 → Free, 21.4 MB): Take fantastic SLR-quality photos with Tadaa SLR. It’s designed for those who want to put their subject in focus.

Tadaa SLR does most of the heavy lifting for you, but it includes a handful of powerful editing features that will please even the most seasoned iPhoneographers. After taking your photo you’re able to apply a mask to your subject manually or have Tadaa SLR detect the edges automatically. The aperture, highlight and gloss levels, and range of your blur effect can be adjusted via sliders. Circular, linear, and complete blur options are available as well. With your subject fully in focus and background blurred out, go ahead and add some filters before sharing it.

Tadaa SLR is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 514 ratings.


Compass by iVogel ($0.99 → Free, 13.5 MB): Always know where you’re going with this stylish navigation app. It’s the perfect app for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

This isn’t just your everyday compass. Sure, it can show your orientation in real-time, but it also includes coordinates, course, speed, altitude, and weather data all on the same screen. Location data can be copied to your clipboard and used in other apps. Compass also includes imperial and metric support, true and magnetic North, Google Maps integration, and two themes to choose from.

Noizio ($1.99 → Free, 28.6 MB): Blend sounds to block out the world with Noizio. It’s for those who prefer ambient sounds over binaural.

Noizio includes 15 enchanting ambient sounds: October Rain, Coffee House, Thunderstorm, Campfire, Winter Wind, Sea Waves, River Stream, Summer Night, Sunny Day, Deep Space, Sailing Yacht, Inside Train, Farm, Wind Chimes, and Blue Whales. Sounds can be activated with a tap, and sliders allow you to adjust the intensity of each separately. Your custom mixes can be saved for later use.

A Noble Circle ($0.99 → Free, 49.8 MB): Guide a noble circle through a two dimensional world in A Noble Circle. It’s one of those games that just has to be experienced.

A Noble Circle is from the creator of A Dark Room and The Ensign. If you’ve played those games, you’ll have a better idea of what to expect from A Noble Circle. If not, you have to try it anyway. On the surface it’s a high score game that has you moving a circle higher and higher with taps. But as you progress, a rather unique story will unfold right before your eyes.

A Noble Circle is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 1548 ratings.

Mars Miner Universal ($1.99 → Free, 48.6 MB): Dig your way to freedom in Mars Miner. It’s a strategy game that requires you to manage resources.

You’ve been kidnapped by the evil Mars Corporation and forced to mine for pieces of a valuable artifact buried deep below the surface of the Red Planet. Grab your pickaxe and get to work to punch your ticket back to Earth! You’re able to move around the environment via an on-screen joystick, and hammer away at the debris by tapping the pickaxe button. Hunt down and gather gems, ore, and other items to be sold at the supply shop so you can purchase better equipment. Each and every mine is randomly generated, so no two games will ever be the same. The game also includes achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Mars Miner Universal is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 1400 ratings.
