Enjoy a twisted game of rock, paper, scissors, take on a mathematical puzzle, and have your kids paint with music with today’s 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:

WeatherRun: Cycling, Walk, Hike Tracker, Altimeter- using Barometer, logger with Pebble Watch, Heart Rate monitor, M8 Motion Steps ($1.99 → Free, 11.5 MB): Stay ahead of the weather with this fitness app. It allows you to get the information you want the most during your runs. It’s the perfect app for fitness enthusiasts in unpredictable climates.

What makes WeatherRun unique is its customizable dashboard. You’re presented with five small circles bordering one large circle. Tap and drag any one of the small circles onto the large circle to bring it into focus. The circles are able to display information like weather, distance traveled, altitude, energy used, speed, and time spent on your activity. The app also includes support for Apple’s M7 co-processor and Pebble’s popular smartwatch.

WeatherRun: Cycling, Walk, Hike Tracker, Altimeter- using Barometer, logger with Pebble Watch, Heart Rate monitor, M8 Motion Steps is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 25 ratings.

Universal:

RPSwipe ($1.99 → Free, 13.8 MB): A game of rock, paper, scissors, but with a handful of twists. Surprisingly, it’s ideal for fans of matching puzzle games like Threes.

RPSwipe feels familiar yet totally unique. The idea of the game is to swipe in any direction in order to make the blue tiles overtake the red ones. That’s the only way you can score. Basic rock, paper, scissors rules apply, but there are a couple of twists. Tiles have “Tile Power” attached to them, which makes overtaking tiles a little more difficult since blue tiles must have equal or higher power to overtake red. You can combine blue tiles of the same type in order to increase their power. The game includes a full tutorial, so don’t worry if this all doesn’t quite make sense to you. It also includes single and local multiplayer modes.

RPSwipe is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

SpikeDislike2 ($0.99 → Free, 23.4 MB): The follow-up to everyone’s favorite ball bouncing, spike avoiding endless distance game. It’s for fans of twitch gaming who also enjoy competing for high scores.

Like the original, your job is to bounce as far as you can without running into the wretched spikes scattered about. The ball is always bouncing, but you get to control its left and right movements by touching each side of the screen. This time around, however, you’ll be challenged with all new game modes. Lots and lots of them! The game includes achievements and leaderboards via Game Center as well.

SpikeDislike2 is available for free today only (02/23). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 29 ratings.

Musical Paint ($3.99 → Free, 74.8 MB): Paint with music with this delightful entertainment app for children. Musical Paint For Kids is great for parents with children eight and under who love to create.

Musical Paint For Kids provides a multi-sensory experience for your child. They’re able to select from six adjustable colors and then paint their hearts out. Each color is accompanied by a different tune, so each stroke will create beautiful music. Your child can sign their work of art before saving it, adding a nice personal touch.

Musical Paint is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 38 ratings.

Match a Number ($1.99 → Free, 16.9 MB): Hit the target value by combining number tiles in this matching puzzle game. It’s ideal for gamers of all ages thanks to its fun use of mathematics.

Match a Number’s objective may be simple, but achieving it can be downright difficult. You must drag your finger over the top of numbered tiles in order to achieve a target value. Blue tiles represent addition. Red tiles represent subtraction. Yellow tiles represent multiplication. The order in which you drag your finger over the tiles represents the order of operation, further complicating matters. The game includes a variety of modes including timed and multiplayer, and multiple levels of difficulty.

Match a Number is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.
