Today's Best Apps: Fist Of Awesome And Blur

October 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


FIST OF AWESOME by I FIGHT BEARS LTD ($3.99, 72.6 MB): In this quirky side-scrolling beat 'em game, humans have been knocked down the food chain and it's up to you and your now sentient hand to correct the situation. Caused by an unknown change in the space-time continuum, bears rule with an iron paw, followed by deer, dogs, and other animals, leaving humans at a new mercy. However, not all is lost as the altered timeline also includes the Fist of Awesome, an aggressive force now possessing the lumberjack Tim Burr via his hand. Ready to overthrow the animal kingdom, the Fist swings into action, dragging along its most recent host to punch, smash, kick, and stomp the furry fighters. The game features 8-bit 2-D graphics, chiptunes, solo story-driven campaign, objective-based arena-style survival mode, 11 stages with boss-like bear battles as finishers, 22 characters, dual thumb controls, as well as Game Center leaderboards and achievements.

Blur - Create your own Wallpapers by Sven Bacia (Free, 896.5 KB): Easily create beautiful iOS 7-friendly backgrounds using this dual function image editing app. Very simple and straightforward, the app has two main user interface, a blur slider and toolbar. Just tap the "+" button, take a fresh snapshot or import a photo from the camera roll, then get right to work. In addition to testing various levels of clarity, you can also change the overall tint by heading into the settings area. Color choices include everything from standard black to a celestial provoking white plus a dozen vibrant colors. Finished projects may be exported to the iOS camera roll, sent via Mail or Messages, shared via Twitter or Facebook, and transferred using AirDrop or the pasteboard in the original image quality, which should provide optimal results for any device. Remove the possibility of iAds via a $0.99 in-app purchase.
