Today's Best Apps: Metegol And Marvin For iPhone And iPod touch

September 15, 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


Marvin for iPhone and iPod touch by Appstafarian ($4.99, 14.6 MB): The feature-rich and highly acclaimed e-book reader for iPad is now available in a pocket-sized version for truly on-the-go access. Like its recently updated sibling, the user interface has been groomed into a simplistically flat design to match the iOS 7 experience and the internals fine tuned. However, the inherited attributes are just as or even more important. With so many capabilities, I'll list only some of those that set this apart from apps like iBooks: smart book organization and suggestions, single or dual page viewing in both landscape and portrait, gestures for quickly adjusting brightness and warmth, hundreds of color theme possibilities using a separate text and background selection system, remaining chapter length countdown, reading timer, and Calibre support.


Metegol by Clarin Global S.A. (Free, 44.0 MB): In this interesting twist on Foosball, the soccer ball kicking players are provided extra freedom to spin the fun into a challenging action side-scroller. Once unleashed from their bar, the team is allowed to sprint down the field with greater abilities, changing formation and more easily assisting one another. Indeed, that means an alternative method of control. Running is automatic, however, you're in charge of passing the ball to avoid the opposing team, which has been granted similar independence. Alongside the variously capable defenders are other obstacles, such as hazard cones, and coins for enhancements. The game features 3-D graphics, inspiring and upbeat soundtrack, Game Center leaderboard and achievements, simple single finger touch control, as well as three play modes: level-based campaign, survival-style Non-Stop, and custom field building Challenge.
