Today's Best Apps: Exbel, Muzio And Zeami: A Journey Through The Mind

June 18, 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.


Muzio by Muzio (Free, 10.4 MB): Log and share your timeless tales, awesome adventures, and other experiences in beautiful depth with this blog-style social app. By utilizing many forms of media, rather than just one, every element of the story is captured through the appropriate senses. For example, a vacation to the beach could include an introduction of how you spontaneously decided upon a fun day off, a short video of the family playing beach volleyball or tossing around the Frisbee, and then finish off by featuring a photo of the sunset and an audio clip of the waves washing into shore. Of course, that can be expanded upon, but it's all up you, the storyteller. The app features a flat UI, quick and easy media insertion, mobile and desktop optimization, two tap item editing or removal, sharing via email and popular social networks, as well as five media choices: caption and description text, text quotes, images, audio, and video.

Exbel by Yaser Almajed ($0.99, 30.7 MB): By offering an easy way to blend two photos, this camera and image editing app can make an artist out of nearly anyone. Thanks to auto-cropping and adjustable intensity, several creations are possible. For example, you could shape a bush into a heart or paint a very faint overlay mask of a sunset atop your lover's face. The app features a simple four step process, 14 filter effects, export to the iOS camera roll along with sharing via email and social networks, as well as brightness, contrast, positioning, cropping, and transparency adjustment tools.

Zeami: A Journey Through The Mind [Color-Blind Mode] by Patryk Otreba ($1.99, 27.0 MB): This Rubik's Cube inspired puzzler will provide plenty of mind exercising entertainment in times of boredom. Your objective is to recreate shaped-based images by strategically moving the colored gems into place. To do so, tap one and swipe right or left to rotate the six surrounding gems clockwise or counterclockwise. Due to the grouped maneuvering, perform a handoff-type action to move the gems around the board. As an added challenge, you're graded on the number of moves made, less being better. The game features 2.5-D graphics, calm atmospheric soundtrack, 30 levels, special gems, star rating system, and single finger control.
