Today's Best Apps: Collage Painter, Units Plus Converter, Funky Hoops Basketball And More

January 19, 2013
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.


Units Plus Converter simple unit converting: Currency, Weight, Time, etc. by Alan Mrvica (Free, 1.3 MB): Whether currency, distance, temperature, time, weight, volume, area, etc, this elegant tool makes it quick and simple to convert from one unit of measurement to another.


Funky Hoops Basketball by Solus Games (Free, 25.0 MB): Come out to the b-ball court for some fun two-on-two action. Play as the "girl power" Spirit team, "we're the king of sports" D.K. team, "skateboarders" Board 'em team, and more in the first to 12, 18, or 24 point matches. The game features semi-retro 3-D graphics, virtual joystick and button controls, upbeat music, and three difficulty modes.

Forest Fury by T and G Apps (Free, 19.1 MB): In this "green" real-time strategy game, you're tasked with the somewhat controversial action of killing loggers and destroying construction equipment to protect the forest. In your fight against deforestation, you'll be using bows and arrows, boulders, meteor showers, and earthquakes along with passive power-up for healing, invincibility, etc. The game features hand-drawn-style graphics, 70 levels, and Game Center integration.

Bowling Pro by Amit Barman ($0.99, 23.3 MB): Meant to get right down to business, this game doesn't have characters or unnecessary animations, just straight-up bowling. Choose one of the 25 differently painted balls and battle the AI at one of four difficulty levels in VS mode or challenge strangers and friends via the Game Center leaderboard in single player mode.


Collage Painter by Kirill Edelman ($0.99, 6.2 MB): Construct brand new scenes by combining the elements of various photos using this creative photo editing app. You begin with a base image, then just paint selective portions of other photos atop it. The result will be seamless, especially if the lighting is very similar among the photos. The app features simple gestures to control zoom and orientation for each layer, brush opacity and size adjustments, undo and redo, plus sharing via Twitter or Facebook as well as export to the iOS camera roll.
