Today's Best Apps: Grackles And Grenades, I Feel Brave And Tales Of Terror: Crimson Dawn

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


I Feel Brave by Mike Geiger ($0.99, 7.8 MB): Share in the enjoyment of this simple short story to boost your child's confidence. The charming character takes kids on a tour to tell them how great they can feel when trying new foods, telling people how they feel, helping out a smaller sibling, facing a fear of the dark, and other actions that seem so scary. The app features minimalistic cartoony 2-D graphics in pleasant pastel, upbeat soundtrack, and 15 interactive pages where kids pop bubbles, turn on the lights, send the character happily soaring down the hill plus more using simple swipes and taps.

Grackles and Grenades by Blake Smedley (Free, 12.8 MB): This simple and quirky survival-style action-arcade game will help you pass the time in line or during other brief periods of boredom. The grackles are coming, the grackles are coming! Okay, it's not that dramatic, but perhaps could be. Anyway, as the swarms and waves of these black birds fly overhead, tap and hold at the desired target position as long as needed to perform a properly timed toss. Obviously, the more of the pesky winged warriors that you pop, the higher the rewards. Five strikes, i.e., creatures allowed to pass, and you're out. The game features mildly gory cartoon-type graphics, cheery soundtrack, single finger control, local high score saving, and six unlockable flying fiends, including a pig and turtle.


Tales of Terror: Crimson Dawn HD - A Hidden Object Adventure by Big Fish Games, Inc (Free, 202.7 MB): Satisfy your haunted holiday spirit by solving the mystery in this eerie hidden objects game. Following a strange foreshadowing, the story begins as you, a young woman, witness the kidnapping of your brother, Jason. The attempt to chase after him and his hooded abductor is thwarted after you crash into a fallen tree. Resourceful, you find a few clues and head off to a nearby mansion. However, now it's more than just the feeling of a sibling's wellbeing that's haunting. Can you discover what's happening and rescue him in time? The game features 3-D graphics, three modes offering different levels of difficulty, as well as point-and-tap controls. Start the adventure for free, then unlock the full experience via a $3.99 in-app purchase.
