Today's Best Apps: iRun Weather Alarm Clock, iVolution And Big Hangman Of Fortune

March 24, 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.


iRun Weather Alarm Clock by Voros Innovation ($0.99, 14.4 MB): This is a wonderfully handy alarm clock for early morning walkers, runners, bicyclists, etc. However, you may find it useful even without participating in such activities. Anyway, the pivotal feature is weather reporting and monitoring. Specifically, your wakeup call will be delayed if conditions are beyond your acceptable standards, such as frigid temps or rain. These guidelines and more can be set for every alarm. In addition, the app offers three digital LED colors, 14 alarm sounds, optional flash during alarm, as well as easy access nightlight and flashlight modes


iVolution - the evolving word game by Jay Bacal (Free, 28.6 MB): Adaptation and quick thinking are the keys to succeeding in this challenging turn-based word game. Similar to Crosswords, the concept is to build atop a set of specific letters that the opponent chooses. You have access to the entire alphabet and power-ups, but limited time and only three rounds to earn points. In Evolution mode, there's the added guideline of creating particular length words, which progressively increase from three to 12 letters. The game features solo Classic and Evolution modes, local and online multiplayer with "equality" option, Game Center integration, and a five level skilled AI. Equality is a premium feature available via in-app purchase for $0.99.

Big Hangman of Fortune by Kumkwat Entertainment, LLC (Free, 34.8 MB): Hangman returns to co-star in his very own game show. While the core concept remains, this reinvented version includes a point and coin reward system, plus some exciting and challenging play additions. Foremost is Elimination, a pre-round period when you can remove possible letter choices without a penalty. Next comes the standard guessing and main portion of the game. Unlike the classic game, word solutions represent only a single round and every letter submission costs a point. Due to this endurance aspect, you now have four lifelines, although, just one of each is provided per game. Participation involves strictly solo play and posting scores to the global leaderboard or a head-to-head match against a single human opponent. The app does contain static and intermission-style ad banners, which can be removed for $2.99.
