Today's Best Apps: Xynthesizr And Bath & Body Works ScentSnap

October 27, 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


Xynthesizr by Yuri Turov (Free, 5.2 MB): Use this sample-based synthesizer to easily create your own techno tunes. Just tap or slide your finger across the color-coded octave grid to activate or deactivate a single or strand of the LED-like cells. Next, start playback to hear your synth symphony, modifying the pattern as desired at any time. If you want to make further customizations, tap the arrow at the right of the toolbar to reveal a fine tuning panel. Here, you can adjust the main and low-frequency oscillation, amplitude, tempo, and filters as well as enable an automatic pattern morphing algorithm. Add the ability to record via a one-time $0.99 in-app purchase. The 4-inch Retina display of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and 5G iPod touch supports a 26-note grid whereas older devices offer 22.

Bath & Body Works ScentSnap by Bath & Body Works Brand Management, Inc. (Free, 32.1 MB): Apply a splash of sensational color to your photos with this alluring effects camera and image editing app. The 20 elegantly paired filters and frames are all inspired by the company's new Signature Collection, from Amber Blush to Twilight Woods. Your finalized fragrance fantasy can be shared with or without the product logo through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or email.
