Today's Best Apps: Disconnect Kids And Did You See?

July 28, 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


Did You See? by Games2win (Free, 55.4 MB): This memory-based photo trivia game offers a brain stimulating way to pass a little time. During each of the 20 blitz-style levels, you're shown a variety of 10 photos that are displayed for a mere seven seconds. Following every one is a set of two questions testing your recollection of details, such as "How many people did you see?" and "What color was the woman's belt?" If you get stumped, the game offers hints through the ability to peek for another five seconds. The initial 50 peeks are free, but every 50 more will cost you $0.99. The game also features score sharing via Facebook, Twitter, or email. A small ad banner appears at the bottom of the screen except during the display of pictures.


Disconnect Kids by Disconnect (Free, 15.2 MB): The ex-Google engineer created anti-tracking service arrives for iOS through a simple edutainment and management app. To start things off, which we recommend you pull up a seat and enjoy as well, a comic book-style slideshow explains the intent and process of invisible tracking. Afterwards, you're presented with a hand-drawn UI featuring the just seen intro plus two other animated videos and a "Slide to Protect" switch. Activating the slider begins the provisioned configuration profile installation to enable the service, which can be adjustable and removed from within the Settings area of the app. Once complete, protection occurs automatically in the background. For extra comfort, feel free to read Disconnect's FAQ and privacy policy.
