Today's Best Apps: Radium And Madden NFL 25

August 27, 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


Radium ~ Perfect Internet Radio by CatPig Studios Inc. ($1.99, 18.3 MB): This clean and simple radio app allows you to have quality access to more than 8,000 local and non-local music and talk stations no matter where you are. Super easy, find stations by searching their call letters, name, genre, or even location and then tap the heart symbol at the right edge to add those of interest to your favorites list. Once a part of your personal list, or even in the search results, just tap on the station to start streaming. As a bonus, the app automatically selects an appropriate equalizer setting for the station type, although, the preset may be changed, if desired. For those who already use Radium on their Mac, go ahead and enable iCloud sync in settings and bypass the need to reconfigure each device. As a further bonus, you can visit the station's website as well as share the currently playing song info as plain text or a "tune-in" link via social networks and instant messages, plus post to your account.


Madden NFL 25 by EA SPORTS™ by Electronic Arts (Free, 669.9 MB): The 25th anniversary edition of Madden NFL has arrived for iOS, including some impressive handling and a few very risky deep shots. On the positive side, this latest release features a totally revised touch control system rather than the traditional virtual joystick and button setup. Once you get the hang of it, the commands are extra handy, such as the timed pass defense maneuver and super easy juke moves. In addition, both player animations and physics appear to be smooth and accurate, actions are quick and efficient with little fluff, plus there's the option of a simple or pro playbook configuration. As for the drawbacks, playbooks and Ultimate Team aspects are initially very limited with a pay-to-play model being implemented for those who want to unlock the full experience. Overall, the game offers 3-D graphics, access to all 32 teams, up-to-date rosters, four difficulty levels, three quarter length choices, Facebook integration, and three play modes. Awarding experience and in-game currency, you can enjoy a single game through Exhibition, challenge friends to turn-based offensive matches via Head 2 Head mode, or face a variety of real confrontations in Solo Challenge mode.
