January 29, 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.


Kik Draw by BlueLid Labs, LLC (Free, 45.6 MB): Optimized output for Kik Messenger, this painting, drawing, and image editing app allows you to quickly send doodles or spice up your photos before sharing. The app includes the basic drawing tools, such as color and line thickness, as well as text and sticker application. As mentioned, you can draw on a blank canvas or atop a photo imported from the iOS camera roll. The final image can be transferred directly to Kik Messenger or saved to the camera roll.

TimeCard Simple by Ruslan Kamalov (Free, 214.1 KB): If you're someone who wonders how their workweek is shaping up pay wise, here's a simple digital timecard that you can reference any time and anywhere. After quickly setting up the very basic job details, just do what you normally do, which is enter in the time you punched in and out. The app supports incremental saves, so you won't need to wait until the end of the day to enter in all of the data, possibly forgetting details.


Word Search by Sofie by Aleksandar Pecanov (Free, 12.9 MB): This well designed word find game may be the last one you ever buy. Foremost, there are three difficulty levels and three puzzle sizes that are dynamically generated for endless gameplay. The next benefit is Game Center integration with leaderboards, achievements, and versus or co-op multiplayer. The final set of perks are a built-in dictionary and thesaurus, separate letter selection indicator, and two methods of selecting words. The game does contain a bottom ad banner.

What the Block?! by aukStudios ($0.99, 19.0 MB): In this physics-based puzzler, your objective is to stack the shapes so that they match up with the pattern shown in colored pencil. It may seem simple, but placing them in the correct positions isn't as easy as you'd think. The game includes four stages of difficulty, more than 150 levels, a star ranking system, and Game Center integration.

Galactic Run by Rebel Box LLC ($1.99, 44.5 MB): It's all about explosions and other action-packed excitement in this semi-retro arcade space shooter. As you speed along giant asteroids and spaceships, you'll need to avoid and destroy smaller vessels and asteroids using phasers and multi-shot bombs while collecting stars. The game features endless play, three ships and seven pilots to choose as your own, and Game Center integration.
