Spell Dash is all about competing for high scores, and the only way to obtain one is to move fast and string together combos. You’re provided with a wall of letter tiles, and you’re able to craft words from them by dragging your finger over the top. The bigger the word, the more tiles that will be cleared. Try to aim for the multiplier and special power-up tiles to really fly up the leaderboards. The game includes two fast-paced modes and one timeless mode, so there is a little something for everyone.

Tunable provides you with instant visual feedback, which is absolutely necessary for any musician. As notes are held out, a white line will show you how steady your pitch is. The straighter the line, the more consistent you are. Tunable also includes a chord generator, a metronome, AirPlay support, and the ability to record your practices and performances.

Tunable: Tuner, Metronome, and Recorder is available for free today only (09/21). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 234 ratings.

We really like Air Keyboard because of its customizability. Before you do anything, you’ll need to download the necessary, and completely free, companion software from the developer’s website. Then launch Air Keyboard, and your iPad and your computer will sync up automatically. Air Keyboard includes nine built-in layouts to meet most of your needs, but you can also customize them however you wish. You’re able to move buttons around, set their appearance, and bind keys. Layouts can be saved and imported via iTunes File Sharing.

Anyone can enjoy creating hand-drawn animations with Loop thanks to its simple interface. Start off by drawing your first frame, and then tap the next arrow. Onion skinning allows you to see the previous frame so you can build off of it. Keep drawing until you have enough frames for an animation, and watch it all come to life. You’re also able to import videos from your library and draw over the top of them.

Loop is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 27 ratings.
