Today's Best Apps: Qwhizzle And Pinch Pong

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


Qwhizzle by Huckleberry BV (Free, 23.0 MB): Nearly everyone in the family can have an edutaining time with this diversely challenging math-based puzzler. Boards are made up of four or nine grid aligned number tiles connected diagonally by mathematical operator tiles. The clever design offers multiple paths, thus providing a large possibility of sums, quotients, products, and differences despite the limited amount of numerals. For every round, the player's task is to uncover the appropriate connections that result in the 10 randomly chosen target values. Now, append a timer for performance judging and simple equations, such as 7 - 2 = 5 and 6 x 4 = 24, won't feel so easy soon enough. In addition to a gold, silver, or bronze rating, the award for victories includes Qwhicks. This in-game currency is good towards hints and unlocking other puzzles, so spend wisely. The game features colorful 3-D graphics, sound effects, 450 puzzles plus Battle mode, single finger control, trophy-style rating system, achievements, and multiple levels of difficulty: two board sizes, decreased time, as well as increasing equation lengths, number ranges, and types of operators. Ads, primarily shown when returning to the menu system, can be disabled via a $2.99 in-app purchase.


Pinch Pong - Touch multiplayer air hockey for 2 by Nicholas Cellini (Free, 6.2 MB): This fresh remake of the action-arcade classic offers simple and nostalgic fun for you and a friend. More like air hockey, the paddle is freely positionable on your half of the court, however, that's not the big twist or secret weapon here. Because the light-based barrier is created by the contact gap between any two fingers, a new attribute emerges. Widen the gap too far and it becomes weak, even useless at a point. In contrast, keeping the spread small forms a peanut or "8" shaped pad that can effectively cup and powerfully shoot the disc with solid control. The game features 2-D graphics, techno soundtrack, face-to-face tabletop play for two human opponents, seven color choices, plus occasional pop-up ads.
