Today's Best Apps: NFL Homegating And New Color

November 30, 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


NFL Homegating by NFL Enterprises LLC (Free, 8.9 MB): This National Football League sponsored app offers tips to fans who keep the pre-game festivities indoors, dubbed "homegating." As with the traditional event, the focus is on food to get everyone pumped and ready for celebratory cheering action. Of course, what better and more appropriate way then fantastic finger food, such as sliders, chicken wings, onion rings, and more. In addition, there are six cooking tips, plus links to relevant items in the NFL Shop, to make certain those 15 tasty end table goodies turn out splendidly and shared with team pride. But before, or rather so, we don't forget, the app also includes up to the second kickoff timers for upcoming games.


New Color by Huntington Phoenix (Free, 19.9 MB): Easily add some artistic flare to photos with this image coloring app. For example, you can bring focus to objects, such as the girl in a portrait, by turning the background black and white, plus change colors, like the drab white daisy in her hair to an eye-popping purple or red, for extra pizzazz. Even better, it doesn't require a graphics design degree. Just circle and splash to highlight areas using the three action brushes and the program does the rest, sucking away or spreading color across surfaces until it reaches a boundary. In addition, you have access to a one-touch action eraser as well as pan, zoom, and color palette controls. Imported and edited images are saved to the in-app gallery and may be exported to the iOS camera roll for sharing. The final resolution is equal to that of your iDevice's screen, e.g., 1024-by-768 for iPad 2. Disabling the "Made with New Color" watermark is a $0.99 in-app purchase.
