Today's Best Apps: Dots And Boxes Deluxe, Sugar Me And Event Book

February 11, 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.


Event Book by Abhinay Ashutosh (Free, 3.4 MB): Designed to be flexible, this task management app features the typical calendar view, plus day, week, and list books that can be displayed in list or timeline formats. Of these, the day book is the most unique and overall informative by providing the current weather report and today's forecast, the number of tasks scheduled, and a list of those events with name, time, and location separated into time categories: now, next, and completed. In regard to locations, the app has an automated search function, unfortunately, it can be problematic when inputting just a location or business name. I recommend entering an address if you require directions.


Sugar Me by GAMEADU (Free, 9.4 MB): In this line-drawing strategy game, prove just how good your multitasking and management skills are by successfully commanding an ant colony. Challenged with 45 different scenarios spreading across three different areas, direct the ants to collect the sugar cubes and return them to the nest without being harmed by predators. If you're really good, you'll also be able to collect all of the stars.

Dots & Boxes Deluxe by VIMAL BHANVADIYA ($0.99, 10.4 MB): Have fun playing the classic pen and pencil strategy game with even more efficiency and no waste. For anyone unfamiliar, here's a quick overview. Players take turns drawing a single wall to any box by connecting any two dots vertically or horizontally. The player that finishes the box, i.e., draws the fourth wall, captures it and gains a point. This digital recreation features one and two player modes, two AI difficulty levels, three field sizes, and clean graphics.
