Today's Best Apps: Bobo's World And UltimaTUBE Live

May 17, 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. Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls.


Bobo's World by Augustine Molina ($0.99, 84.3 MB): Help Bobo defend his home in this adorable and challenging side-scrolling platformer. The trouble happened after two kingdoms began to fight harder and harder for control, and Bobo's hill was caught in the middle. Even though the small, pink creature wanted nothing to do with what was being challenged, he didn't desire the uninvited company either. Here, there was no choice but to become fiercely involved. Take control of Bobo and make your way over the mountain range to destroy every single trespasser using only a bat and ball. The game features colorful 2-D graphics, 31 levels spanning three weather-themed stages, jumping and climbing mechanics, dual-thumb control, plus a star rating system.

ultimaTUBE Live by Silicon Valley (Free, 29.3 MB): This expanded capability YouTube client provides many convenient ways to play and manage videos. First, we'll talk about viewing. Along with the typical portrait and landscape view, description, comments, related videos, as well as sharing options, the app allows quick switching of video quality, easy download initiation, plus a "Hide" function. Hiding a video sends it to the background but continues the audio. The feature is helpful if the visual portion isn't necessary and you want to otherwise navigate the app or for listening to a music video. Speaking of music videos, ultimaTUBE has iOS background audio support, so you can use it as a free music player during running, surfing the web, and so on. As we move back to downloads, it's important to mention that videos can be stored in whichever quality you prefer, depending on what's available, and organized into folders once saved. Obviously, all of this is in addition to the standard YouTube features, such as playlists, searching, top lists, etc.
