Today's Best Apps: Moxie And Plummit

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


Moxie - Create & Share Photo Filters by Invnt (Free, 8.9 MB): A lot like Mextures, this camera and image editing tool's ability to overlay various filters, effects, and more allows for very unique and artistic photo enhancement. Able to be layered as lightly or heavily as desired, the app includes a collection of nearly 300 texture or pattern-based photos and images, 31 color tint filters, and three vignette effects, plus the option of adding your own photos for texturing. Despite how awesome your photo may turn out, that's not actually the focus of the service. The moments are meant to be shared via Twitter, Instagram, or other social network, but the compilation of your efforts and inspirations to make those moments amazing is shared to the Moxie community. Once submitted, your final filter and the chosen image is placed in the gallery for all to enjoy, and perhaps even showcased. Beyond just marveling at your final masterpiece, fans can get a behind-the-scenes-style look using the filter on / off toggle, then mark it as a favorite, proudly re-use it, and simply choose to move along. Posting a filter to the gallery requires linking the app to your Twitter or Facebook account, however, export images for personal does not. Exported images have an apparent maximum resolution of 960-by-960.

Plummit by GAMEJOX PTY. LTD. ($0.99, 27.2 MB): In this endless jumping game that's suitable for nearly any age, you take control of Mr. Plummit and, well, plummet into a bottomless cavern in search for treasures. Though courageous, athletic, and fairly resilient, Plummit only has a torch by his side and must be cunning but careful while navigating his way to the center of the Earth, or wherever the adventure leads. Requiring just the right amount of patience, hop down from platform-to-platform, cautiously moving along the conveyor belt equipped ones (yeah, we don't quite know why either), precisely timing the unstable ledges, and avoiding the scorchingly hot others. As was stated earlier, Plummit is a tough guy and, therefore, can withstand some accidents, namely landing on burning platforms and getting clobbered from atop several times, but don't make a habit of the behavior. In addition, do not under any circumstances carelessly leap into the darkness as you will send the star and sole character into a disappearing demise. The game features hand-drawn 2.5-D graphics, chiptunes soundtrack, simple dual-thumb control, as well as Game Center achievements and leaderboard.
