Today's Best Apps: CloudCam, Duke Nukem 2 And Toxic Splash

April 3, 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.


CloudCam - Camera App for Dropbox and Google Drive by ERCLab, LLC ($0.99, 4.0 MB): By sending images directly to Google Drive or Dropbox, this camera app can keep your photos safe, make them easier to transfer, and save storage space on your iDevice. The process is simple and seamless with newly captured photos automatically uploaded to a dedicated folder, including while the app is backgrounded, plus the ability to select photos already on your iPhone. Beyond the choice of two great cloud storage providers, you can also select whether to save a copy of an in-app captured photo to the iOS camera roll, prevent cellular data usage and only upload when connected via Wi-Fi, as well as reduce the quality of photos for smaller file sizes.

Toxic Splash by Extilum (Free, 38.7 MB): Happily entertain and challenge yourself with this somewhat quirky platformer. In order for Mr. Slimy to escape the planet Zerganox, you must help him collect toxic waste canisters, which are used as fuel. Thankfully, the hovercraft-style spaceship still has a little juice left it in, so you won't need to walk or run. However, the limited time of propulsion does make maneuvering tricky and dangerous. Therefore, the mission will require clever and quick thinking execution. The game features 2-D graphics, 21 levels, a boss battle for each of the three worlds, virtual button control, Game Center leaderboards, as well as contains an ad banner in menus.


Duke Nukem 2 by Interceptor Entertainment ($1.99, 45.4 MB): What better way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the classic side-scrolling platformer than giving it a rebirth via the App Store, right? This touchscreen port contains all of the run and gun excitement of the very original, including the nostalgic 8-bit graphics and the 32 challenging levels that span four action-packed episodes, as well as fluent dual-thumb stick control.
