Today's Best Apps: Retro Morph, Cold Claim And StreamBoard

March 26, 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. Even though it is not a new app, Streamboard is being featured due to its major overhaul and the small number of top apps today.


Retro Morph by Caedmon Somers (Free, 28.2 MB): This retro-style space shooter includes a couple of fun additions to liven up the classic play. Foremost, there's actually a story involved, including plenty of dialog with a humorous artificial intelligence. The second unique characteristic, which drives the story, is how a wormhole propels you, the pilot, and ship through time. What makes the situation so special? You're not traveling through a normal timeline, but rather a gaming one. Therefore, the environment will change from three-dimensional to 8-bit and nearly everything in between those eras. However, no matter how things are viewed, the objective is the same, progress and survive. The game features a total of 20 levels, 15 ship upgrades, four levels of difficulty, and a star ranking system.

StreamBoard by [email protected] ($1.99, 1.5 MB): Use this tweet ticker-type app to easily find and monitor everything from stock market news to customer's making comments about your app, company, or products. Indeed, such an action can be accomplished with a standard Twitter search, however, the advantage here is very quick access to history and refinement options. Now featuring graphs, the distance, popularity, and content type filtering options are just a couple of taps or a tap and a drag away. In addition, you can pause the live streaming feed, if necessary, as well as tap on tweets for more details and sharing.


Cold Claim by Natron Baxter Applied Gaming LLC (Free, 70.0 MB): Challenge up to three friends or strangers in this turn-based strategy game of territory control. Times are tough and resources are scarce, which means there's a battle to claim what remains. Your mission is to command one of a few groups competing in Antarctica to locate and extract Paleo water, plus other possible items. Using a very limited number of personnel, buildings, and finances, be the first to salvage the water, any artifacts, etc. Matches require at least two human opponents and can be played locally using the pass and play method or online via Game Center.
