Today's Best Apps: Floris And Transfr

April 19, 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.


Floris by Andrew Bowers ($2.99, 22.4 MB): This beautifully crafted dropping block-style puzzler truly has a fresh look and feel compared to most other match-3 type games. Both visually pleasing and extra challenging, the board resembles a flower with 12 paths reaching the center from all sides. Sticking to the floral theme, the "blocks" are pedals that drift down the paths to connect to the flower's receptacle. Your task is to connect five pedals in a row or complete a ring by rotating the receptacle and sometimes even swapping pedals between the two incoming paths. What also makes this unique and exciting are the four play modes. In addition to a standard timer, there's a musical chairs-style countdown option using any of the wonderful instrumental tracks as well as limited pedals and one ring modes. The game features vibrant and colorful dreamlike graphics, 12 levels of difficulty, and local high scores.

transfr - photo and video transfer by Objective App LLC ($1.99, 2.3 MB): There's no need to use up cellular data or worry about finding a wireless hotspot when you transfer photos and videos among devices using this handy utility. In fact, almost everything about the process is quick and simple (even more so than explaining it). Just launch the app on both the source and destination devices, which can also include a Mac, then select the photos and videos to copy, tap Send, and finish by selecting the destination device. If available, the app will utilize Wi-Fi for speed, however, files can also be sent over Bluetooth (except to a Mac). The Transfr client for OS X is compatible with 10.7.3 or later and freely downloadable.
