Today's Best Apps: Landcam, Mega Circles: Strategy Puzzle And Wake Up, Arnie

July 24, 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


Landcam by Simple Simple ($0.99, 15.2 MB): With this easy to use camera and image editing app, you can quickly capture moments and add a tinge of vibrance or create beautiful pieces of social art. Specifically, the collection of instruments includes 37 subtly enhancing grayscale and colored hue filters, 30 light effects and texture overlays, 21 solid and hollow shape stamps, 54 line art sketch stamps, text applicator with 42 font choices in both white and black, 15 frames, plus the standard improvement and correction tools, such as brightness and saturation adjustments. Not only are all of these items at your disposal through an elegantly simple flat UI, they may be combined in any manner you desire for the perfect result. In addition, the app features undo and redo, support for image importing from the iOS camera roll, as well as options to save back to the camera or share via email, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or one of many other compatible third-party apps.

Wake Up, Arnie! by Tiago Pereira ($0.99, 18.8 MB): In addition to a nostalgic feeling caused by bringing back the challenging play of the '90s, this retro-styled puzzle-platformer also sends you into another universe, one where a child tries to escape his nightmares. Spurred by visions of horror movies, Arnie's dreams are now filled by an unknown darkness that sweeps its way towards him. Help the boy make it through a freaky forest, creepy castle, and a world filled with giants while outrunning the black cloud of death and gathering lightbulbs to reach a portal of safety. The game features hand-drawn 2-D graphics, eerie soundtrack, 30 levels, boss fights, special gadgets, and dual-thumb controls.


Mega Circles: Strategy Puzzle by Funpresso ($1.99, 6.7 MB): Stimulate those neurons by pitting your mind against the increasing chaotic problem in this physics-based action-puzzler. Requiring patience and quick reflexes, the objective is to expand the circles using precision finger taps and holds to a total of double the size. Because there are multiple circles to utilize in reaching the 100% expansion mark, the task may seem easy. However, it's also due to the multiple objects, which aren't allowed to collide, especially when in flux, that causes the goal to be difficult to attain. In later stages, the cluttered space becomes more dangerous and unpredictable through additions of different shapes and purely hazardous items. The game features neon-style 2-D graphics, casual mode with 100 levels spanning four stages / chapters, minute long blitz mode, and two challenging expansion packs.
