Today's Best Apps: Recorder Pro And Pitch Jumper

July 29, 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


Recorder Pro+ by Tom Jackson (Free, 8.3 MB): Easily capture and more efficiently manage lectures, notes, and the like using this enhanced audio recording app. At the main menu, you're presented with the recordings stored in the most recently accessed folder, a catch-all General by default, plus a quick access search box near the top and a record now button at the bottom. If these simple organization tools don't seem to grasp enough interest, perhaps the actual recording and editing features will. For starters, the app has an impressive sensitivity, almost too much at times. However, such an attribute should well for students in large classrooms, etc. Up next, you'll notice a handful of editing instruments, from pausing and automatic stopping to trimming and repeating. Once a recording is finished, you can make those organization choices by changing the entry name, icon, and save location. In addition to all these capabilities, the app also supports three bit rate and three sample rate settings as well as four common audio formats sendable via email.

Pitch Jumper by Team Pitch Jumper (Free, 115.5 MB): This music-based platformer will have you bobbing and singing through a note-filled fantasy adventure starring Coda. Reminding me of the uniquely gifted elephant, Dumbo, the adorable Coda has large ears that allow temporary flight. As the various notes hang high in the sky and spout vivaciously from trumpeting plants, such a skill becomes essential and must be utilized properly. In fact, every journey requires your full attention and absolute cunning because the song-powered world erupts from audio pace and density, changing with each tune. The game features colorful 2.5-D graphics, 20 goals spanning three levels, song and artist-based in-game leaderboards, three note types with separate point values, score multipliers, 10 included songs plus iPod integration, and semi-adjustable dual-thumb control.
