Today's Best Apps: Overlap Game And Selfiegram

January 5, 2014
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


selfiegram by byss mobile (Free, 3.4 MB): This photo booth-style camera offers a quick and easy way to create fun multi-shot photos. Similar to the old-fashioned entertainment kiosk, though more convenient and flexible, the idea is to capture several scenes, such as different facial expressions or friend poses for export to simple albums. However, these are presented in gallery-type collages instead of film strip form. Even better, you can customize the layout to your liking, including the number of photos, whether you want spacing, and background color, black or white. Immediately afterwords, post the image directly to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, send it via email, or save it to the iOS camera roll for use in another app. A $0.99 in-app purchase is required to remove the "selfiegram" watermark and prevent ad display.


Overlap Game by FrontDesk, Inc. ($0.99, 34.7 MB): Entertain your brain by passing the time immersed in this Crossword-inspired puzzler. Like the popular lexicon-based game, the goal is to assemble the grid with short strings vertically and horizontally, overlapping another at least once. However, these related pieces are made up of images rather than words, something able to be determined from other hints, such as definitions. Basically, the process more closely resembles that of a jigsaw puzzle as the only means to solve the layout is through matching the connections, i.e., identical parts. The game features 2-D graphics, parallax background, atmospheric chiptunes, unlimited boards randomly generated at six difficulty levels, offline top score log based upon completion time, as well as dozens of themes, from colors and numbers to emoticons and clipart-style items.
