July 26, 2014

Listen to your favorite tunes by spinning them on a digital turntable with Vinyl Tap. We also have a finance app that will help you determine where your money is going, and a colorful puzzle game.

Tips+ is two apps in one. The main screen functions as an everyday calculator, complete with symbols that light up when you tap on them. Tap on the “Tip Calculator” button to flip the interface over and calculate your total bill amount. You must first enter a subtotal and then rate your service with a slider. You’ll see your total bill amount at the very bottom. Tips+ is available for free today only (07/26). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 13 ratings.

Skill Game ($2.99 → Free, 33.0 MB): A true game of skill.

Your objective is to connect all of the numbers in ascending order without touching the lines you’ve already created. The process of doing so, however, requires a deft hand and a little strategy. Make sure to utilize the viewfinder in the top left corner of the screen, otherwise you won't stand a chance.

You're able to slide and tumble BLiP across the environments by tapping each side of the screen. Utilize environmental objects to clear treacherous areas, and collect all three stars in each level to unlock the exits. The game includes more than 60 levels, unlockable bonus levels, and leaderboards via Game Center. BLiP is available for free today only (07/26). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 26 ratings.

Flux Pro ($1.99 → Free, 57.0 MB): This puzzle game will put your color theory knowledge to the test.

The object of the game is to connect matching pairs of colored shapes with lines, but there’s a catch. When lines cross over each other, they will change in color. It’s up to you to cross lines at just the right moment to match the shapes and their colors without cornering yourself. The game includes five difficulty settings, 700 levels, hints in case you get stuck, five grid sizes, and achievements via Game Center. Flux Pro is available for free for a limited time.

At the end of the process, a personalized certificate will appear, which can be printed out for your child to keep. Sight Words Space is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 9 ratings.

Vinyl Tap - this one goes to 11 ($0.99 → Free, 49.3 MB): Crank it up to 11 with this digital turntable app.

Vinyl Tap allows you to enjoy your favorite tunes just as you used to. You’ll have to decide on one of the seven different turntable styles, each with seven vinyl colors to choose from. Then select an artist or album from your library and hit play to start spinning your vinyl. Drag the needle and drop it on top of the vinyl to start playing music. The position of the needle determines the point in the song. You’re also able to mess with the playback speed via on-screen controls. Vinyl Tap - this one goes to 11 is available for free today only (07/26). It has a 3-star rating with a total of 10 ratings.
