Today's Best Apps: Ragtime Ruffian And Pic Noir

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


Pic Noir - B&W Vignette Illustrator with Greyscale & Sepia 1920 Textures! by Applause PTY LTD ($2.99, 8.4 MB): Give photos a mysterious feel with this film noir-inspired image editing app. The monochrome filters as well as a size, position, shape, and intensity adjustable vignetting tool provide an easy means of recreating the basic style. However, there are bonus features available for further enhancement and uniqueness. Add even more intriguing obscurity using a flexible grain texture and some artistic boldness with strategically placed splashes of color or full image color filters. For the finishing touch, encapsulate the moment in an outlining thin border or format changing thick edged frame. The app also features both photo capture and import, sharing via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, or email, and export to the iOS camera roll or Applause's other image editing apps.


Ragtime Ruffian by Alec Thomson ($1.99, 33.0 MB): In this quirky railway-themed puzzler, the idea is to forget about your troubles by using locomotives to splatter the innocent. Teamed up with what appears to be a railroad tycoon of the Old West, you're now provided a limited set of resources to carry out the unethical fun. In every scenario, there are people scattered about the desert, a small set of tracks, a couple of locomotives, and some extra money. Analyze the terrain and construct efficient paths to reach and run over the civilians. Just a couple of the things that you'll need to consider include the necessity of occasionally sacrificing a train to clear a path as well as splatters award points and extra finances, which may be necessary for construction and adjustments mid-project. The game features pixelated 2-D graphics, light violence, dark humor, 50 stages, multiple in-game tools, and a Game Center leaderboard.
