Today's Best Apps: Limbo Game, Rhonna Designs And Spending²

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


LIMBO Game by Playdead ($4.99, 98.1 MB): Playdead's acclaimed platform-puzzler steps its way into the App Store. On a quest to save his sister, an unnamed boy sets off on a dangerous quest through a gloomy and mysterious environment. As you are provided no guidance whatsoever, there will be plenty of "trial and death" experiences until successfully discovering how to cross ponds, climb down cliffs, jump over pits containing fatally piercing objects, and more. In fact, your only recourse is to replay, either from the current point or one earlier. The game features beautiful silhouetted monochrome 2-D graphics as well as realistic physics and sounds with some gory attributes, 40 auto-saving checkpoints, Game Center achievements, and single finger control: swipe to move and jump, tap and hold to pull or otherwise interact with certain objects, and single tap in the top-left to display the menu. NOTE: Only operates properly on fifth generation iPod touch, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, or newer.

Rhonna Designs by Rhonna Farrer ($1.99, 39.4 MB): Use this image editing app filled with lots of great content by Rhonna Farrer to improve your photos. Go ahead and add a title, quote, or phrase that's beautified by any one of the artistic fonts, plus take it a step further and apply one of the wonderful theme-based or patterned stickers. No matter which you choice, every item is customizable in primary color, outline color, opacity, size, shadow intensity, and orientation for the look and balance. In addition to the layers items, the photo itself is able to be enhanced through the application of lens filters and an adjustable mask. The app features a flat user interface, slide out toolbars, nearly 30 fonts, over 600 stickers, and a 1024-by-1024 squared output optimized for Instagram with additional export support to Twitter, Facebook, iOS camera roll, and email.

Spending² by TIT inc ($0.99, 11.2 MB): Keep a close watch on your budget with this in-depth finance tracking app. The first thing that's different from many competitors is the calendar display, providing a time-based look at spending and income along with the categorized list view. However, your bird's eye view allows for plenty more angles in which to analyze where all of that hard earned money is going. Specifically, there are options to show the monthly totals on a year calendar, show things accounting-style through a 6-month spreadsheet, or compare every category via easy to read bar and line graphs spanning the month, quarter, or, once again, year. In addition, the app allows editing and adding categories, quick transaction entry, plus iCloud integration for data synchronization and safekeeping (backup).
