January 2, 2015

Enjoy a game of cards, hunt for words, or compete against a friend locally in a variety of board games with today’s fun collection of apps and games.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.

iPhone:

Alayer ($0.99 → Free, 58.8 MB): Layer loads and loads of effects on top of your favorite photos with Alayer. It’s for those who enjoy fiddling with their photos.

With Alayer, your possibilities are endless. You’re able to import any photo from your library or take a new one from within the app. You’re then able to add layer upon layer of textures, lens flares, effects, light leaks, gradients, and colors. All layers are fully adjustable, allowing you to create that perfect photo. You’re also able to erase parts of layers to focus on specific areas of your photo. The app also includes the ability to create your own textures, blur photos, create favorites, and share your creations via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or email.

Alayer is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 53 ratings.

Universal:

Word Mess ($2.99 → Free, 12.4 MB): Go on the hunt for words in this seek and find game. Word Mess can be thoroughly enjoyed by anyone looking to improve their visual scanning abilities and vocabulary.

We like Word Mess because it’s accessible to gamers of all ages. At the beginning of each round you’re presented with a word or type of word that must be discovered among the mess. You have a limited amount of time to track it down and tap on it. You’re able to play all on your own or compete with your friends in head-to-head battles. You’re also able to compare your skills via Game Center.

Word Mess is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 572 ratings.

Pocket Solitaire ($0.99 → Free, 28.4 MB): Play Solitaire wherever you go with Pocket Solitaire. It’s for anyone that wants to have Solitaire in their pocket in case the mood to play strikes.

What we especially enjoy about Pocket Solitaire is that you can get right into the action. There aren’t any major distractions. Just decide on if you to play an always solvable game or a random game with the possibility of not having a solution and start moving cards around. During each game you can see how many moves you’ve made, how long you’ve been playing, receive hints, and even view the solution. The game includes stat tracking, replays, two card backs and four table themes to choose from, and one, two, and three card draws.

Pocket Solitaire is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 97 ratings.

Game For Two ($1.99 → Free, 11.9 MB): A collection of eight games that can be played with a friend. It’s ideal for fans of board games.

Let’s get this straight: Game For Two is truly meant for two local human players. Sure, you can play against the AI on three different difficulty settings, but it’s just not the same. The eight included games are: Caro, Co Ganh, Tiling, Coloring, Reversi, Checkers, Conquer, and Chess. All have their own set of rules that can be accessed at any time. So grab a friend and start playing.

Game For Two is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 189 ratings.

Pocket FreeCell ($0.99 → Free, 13.7 MB): Play a game of FreeCell while on the go with Pocket FreeCell. It’s ideal for anyone who enjoys playing cards.

Just like Pocket Solitaire, you can jump right in to a game of FreeCell in a moment’s notice. All you have to do is decide whether you want to play an always solvable game or a random game. During each game you can see how many moves you’ve made, how long you’ve been playing, receive hints, and even view the solution. The game includes stat tracking, replays, and six table themes to choose from.

Pocket FreeCell is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 6 ratings.
