Today's Best Apps: The Flying Alphabetinis, Prime World: Alchemy And ProTap

February 12, 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.


ProTap by Logan Gauthier (Free, 11.6 MB): Intended for the professional musician with a keen sense of hearing, this passionately designed and well-crafted metronome offers the most useful adjustments and the highest accuracy possible. Foremost, the beats per minute can be entered using a traditional slider or by tapping the desired tempo. Up next, we have the time signature adjustment as well as beat sound choices, which include the common wood block plus hi-hat, snare, bass drum, and several beeps. The final tool is a visual beat display with colored numbers and optional screen flashing.


Prime World: Alchemy by NIVAL, INC. (Free, 45.3 MB): This match-3 game stands out with its inclusion of alchemy as well as a couple of other nice gameplay twists. Instead of a cascading wall of gems, various elements will randomly spawn on the board, which you must combine to create a new element, then combine those. Adding a bit more difficulty, some elements will be anchored, therefore, forcing you to move others to unlock them. The game features endless play through randomly generated levels, 3-D graphics, and Game Center integration.

The Flying Alphabetinis - A Fingerprint Network App by Fingerprint (Free, 42.1 MB): Here's a great way to allow your kids to join in on the word game excitement. Immersed in a fun circus-themed user interface, children compete against one another to find the most words in three turn-based rounds. Gameplay is very similar to adult word games as kids draw lines on the random letter grids to construct each word. Scoring is by word and not by letter, making things challenging but not too much. Kids can jump right in and play, however, logging in with a Fingerprint account adds family-friendly communication, rewards, and activity reports.
