Today's Best Apps: Flipcase And Chemical Name

October 13, 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


Flipcase by Bytesize (Free, 1.7 MB): If you own an iPhone 5c and the companion protective case, then you can enjoy an "outside of the box" twist on Connect 4. The clever concept works by using the holes in Apple's strangely artistic design as the board grid rather than a digital recreation, providing an old school handheld-style experience. Once applied, simply tap inside the circles to choose options and make your move of, attempting to create four-in-a-row before the opponent. When the match is over, just shake your iPhone to start anew. The game features colorful 2-D graphics, touch and shake controls, as well as one and two player modes.


Chemical Name by Siddiq Akbar ($0.99, 6.3 MB): This entertaining image creator allows you to give almost any name the Breaking Bad's iconic periodic table treatment. Just tap on the poster to enter any two words and watch the app automatically find and integrate valid element names. Afterwards, you can have a little extra fun by altering the smoke color with choices of Blue Meth, Bad Green, Coffee Smoke, Red Smoke, Chrome Smoke, Jesse Pinkman, and Walter White. Of course, we have serious business to attend to, namely, application. The product must be optimized for its intended use, right? Don't worry, that's taken care of as well. Size and aspect ratio are automatically adjusted for the following targets: Facebook profile picture, Facebook page cover image, iPhone 5/5s/5c, 5G iPod touch, iPad, and personal computers. Final images may be saved to the iOS camera roll, transferred using AirDrop, sent via Messages and Mail, shared through Twitter and Facebook, applied to an Address Book Contact, printed, or copied to the pasteboard.
