Today's Best Apps: Ringerjack And Codecademy: Hour Of Code

December 8, 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


Codecademy: Hour of Code by Codecademy (Free, 4.3 MB): The popular programming trainer comes to iOS to get you started on app creation. The five introductory courses provide a simple overview of the basic concepts involved with coding software, including games. You'll go step-by-step using sample snippets of code, getting brief descriptions before and after completing the tiny projects broken into three stages. As a motivational bonus, courses are graded in a triple star rating and may also opt-in to receive push notifications regarding course additions.


Ringerjack by Vaibhav Electronics Pvt Ltd (Free, 3.9 MB): This code breaking-type word game provides a refreshing way to pass the time and exercise your brain. Rather than a field of letters, these boards contain only a dozen or so stamped on differently sized dials, or rings. Your task is to spin each ring until all of the arrows around the edge point to valid words like a lock. The game features 2-D graphics, completely casual and two timed modes, static or increasing difficulty levels, three word lengths, and Game Center leaderboards.
