Today's Best Apps: Curiosity And AirMusic Play

October 20, 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


Curiosity - Shopping by Decouv Inc. (Free, 18.1 MB): Get started on a new hobby or other activity the right way with this product recommendation app. Whether just jogging a few times a week or going on a journey through the mountains, it's best to be prepared. You could scope out forums for suggestions, scour online retailers, or ask those who have experience. Curiosity is that third one, a community of enthusiasts curating packages for specific activities, from bicycle repair kits to comfortable cold weather running clothes and, well, a lot more. In fact, even as much of an expert as you think you are, there could very likely be items you never even considered. Basically, take the benefit of experience, or otherwise referred to as trial and error. Regarding the app itself, the user interface is simple, yet effective. Products are grouped in packages, each shown in scrollable horizontal gallery and accompanied by a brief title or descriptions. Tapping on any lineup will display further details, including the poster's basic bio and individual products with ratings and store options. Items can be tapped on for product specifications, usually offered via the manufacturer's website, saved for later or purchased immediately through a preferred, typically big name, reseller. Begin by viewing the large assortment of suggestions as a guest, then sign up for a free account or link to your Facebook profile for posting and other capabilities.

AirMusic Play - Stream Music Remotely by Hassan Hosam ($0.99, 2.9 MB): This simple utility converts your iPhone or iPod touch into an AirPlay-enabled audio receiver for easily sharing music. Indeed, the first possibility is to send tunes from one iDevice to another, however, that's not likely the most motivating use. AirPlay is also a part of iTunes, including multi-output support. Which means, if you have speakers or sound systems with iDevice docks or auxiliary input, each iPhone or iPod touch can act as a temporary AirPort Express, becoming a wireless bridge for distributing music to the patio, living room, kitchen, bedroom, or even all four simultaneously. All devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network access point or router.
