Today's Best Apps: Bowling Friends And VideoPlay

July 4, 2013
he 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


Bowling Friends by GameResort LLC (Free, 39.3 MB): In this social-based bowling game, there's no need to change your shoes or even get out of bed to enjoy the pin crushing action. Do some uninterrupted damage by keeping the lane all to yourself in Solo mode or show off those strikingly awesome skills in a head-to-head competition via the turn-based Game with Friends multiplayer mode. In addition to the availability of varied attribute and graphically-themed balls, you have the opportunity of redoing frames, obviously, at a cost. The game features 3-D graphics, lounge-style soundtrack, more than 30 balls and six stages to unlock and purchase using in-game credits and gems, single finger swipe controls, as well as Game Center leaderboards and achievements.

VideoPlay by Dropico ($0.99, 45.4 MB): Easily create movie-style scenes with this effects-focused video recording app. Very straightforward, the user interface includes a viewfinder, FX gallery, as well as buttons for record, stop, LED torch on or off, and save. The 13 special effects are, well, special because every single one is an active enhancement. For some examples, you can add snowflakes lazily drifting across the screen, a wall of fire that makes your subject appear to be engulfed in flames, a layer of blue ripples to simulate an underwater appearance, large splashes of water shooting from the left and right, or even something more typical and simple, such as Sepia-type vintage or black and white lenses. As for sharing, videos are exported to the iOS camera at up to 720p HD quality in QuickTime format.
