Today's Best Apps: Battle Bears Zero And My Forecasts

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


Battle Bears Zero by SkyVu Pictures ($0.99, 237.2 MB): The heavily armed huggable killers are back with some great new action. First, experience a new campaign, one filled with plenty of survival-style shooting action and an even more hilarious story. Seriously, it's the feature presentation you won't want to miss. Well, if you like whacky and somewhat crude humor and antics. Beyond that, take on the all out, no frills, guns blazing challenge of standard single player mode or get double the pleasure and double the fun in cooperative multiplayer. The game includes hand-drawn 2-D and 3-D graphics, hard-hitting techno and rock-style soundtrack, 13 stage solo campaign with cartoon cutscenes, single player mode, online coop multiplayer, dual-thumb controls in third-person fixed position as well as dozens of weapons, power-ups, and more.

My Forecasts by Vesta Software, LLC ($1.99, 56.4 MB): This graph-filled weather app provides a quick and simple outlook for the day hour-by-hour. Sitting at the top of the screen is the current sky condition, temperature, plus a brief overview description with sun and moon time information hidden by a single tap. Beneath that are differently colored line and bar graphs stacked atop one another to display previous, current, as well as forecasted temperature, wind, cloud cover, precipitation, humidity, and sky visibility. To see specific data, just tap-and-hold anywhere on the graphs for a balloon-style popover. For convenience, a tinted vertical line indicates the current hour, which also includes a balloon color change. In addition, performing long horizontal drags switches days and turning your iDevice landscape orientation reveals the standard week ahead report. As for location changes and data updates, simply tap the list or grip tab in the top-left. Other settings and preferences are accessed using a swipe across the top (current conditions) bar, tapping or swiping the grip pad at the bottom-left. Return to the main display by tugging at the very right edge of the screen.
