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.


Impulcity by Impulcity, LLC (Free, 8.2 MB): Whether you're looking for an unforgettable night out with friends or weekend fun with the kids, this location-based event discovery app will help you quickly and easily find exciting live activities happening locally. Obviously, the app has categories, basic event details like time and location, notifications, searching, sharing, and check-in. However, it's what you don't expect that can be extra helpful. Even information pages also contain a comment and communication system called the Timeline as well as some in-depth attendance data, such as gender balance. The app allows login via Facebook or an Impulicity account.


I, Gladiator by Burlington Trading Limited ($4.99, 920.8 MB): In this close combat fighting game, you play as a gladiator who must prove himself within the walls of the iconic Colosseum. The challenge involves facing waves of menacingly powerful and skilled opponents that will require strategic and aggressive attacks using swipe and tap gestures. When, or if, you succeed, there will be a great reward that can be used to purchase better weapons and enhance your skills. The game features Retina display-optimized 3-D graphics, story and tournament gameplay modes, as well as Game Center integration.


Sound Uncovered by Exploratorium (Free, 316.9 MB): This fascinating educational experience presented by the Exploratorium reveals interesting facts about sound through fun interactive demonstrations. For example, you'll discover whether or not it's possible to talk and listen at the same time, how speech involves sight, the result of stereo sound and processing of musical tones, and more. Once you've tried each activity, there's an article explaining what exactly happened and why.

4PAD - Parallel Adaptive Browser Boards by Ondrej Mikula ($1.99, 8.9 MB): Great for day traders or anyone else who needs simultaneous access to multiple online resources simultaneously, this web browser allows viewing up to four pages at once with minimal obstruction and various tools.
