March 8, 2015

Create crazy compositions by freezing objects in their place, solve math problems to guess the picture, and create 3-D models from scratch 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:

Impossible Dodge – Bad Red Balls ($0.99 → Free, 9.0 MB): An avoidance game that’s not quite impossible, but it sure is difficult! It’s ideal for arcade gamers who enjoy competing for high scores.

You’re put in control of little white square known as DodgeMan. As the balls fall from the top of the screen, you must quickly slide left and right to avoid them. If you get hit by a ball, it’s not the end of the world, you’ll just lose some of your life power. Lose too much and it’s game over. Power-ups will also fall at random, which can be collected by sliding under them. The game includes three modes, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Impossible Dodge – Bad Red Balls is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 25 ratings.

Universal:

Picture Math ($1.99 → Free, 65.3 MB): Guess the picture by solving math problems in Picture Math. It’s ideal for parents and teachers with children ages five through 12.

Picture Math makes learning math operations fun. Each of the 50 levels covers a different operations topic, which become more complicated as your child progresses. Levels require your child to solve math problems to map out lines and clue them in on what is being pictured. They can guess the picture at any time using the letters provided to them, but it’s important to solve every last problem in order to earn all of the stars and unlock additional levels. The game includes visual models, 400 questions, and fully narrated lessons.

Picture Math is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.

Blox 3D Junior ($2.99 → Free, 26.6 MB): Unlock your child’s creative side by allowing them to build 3-D models with this entertainment app. It’s a fun distraction for children between the ages of one and five.

Blox 3D Junior’s intuitive control scheme allows anyone to create. They start off with a single block, and they can build from there by tapping and pulling to create new blocks. Make sure your child creates their base and moves upwards first, otherwise it can be difficult to navigate the blocks. The blocks can be rotated with a swipe and zoomed in on with a pinch. Double-tap to delete any blocks that have been created. Your child’s creations can be played out within the app or saved to the photo library. There are four pre-built modes included for inspiration.

Blox 3D Junior is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 6 ratings.

FreezePaint: The Live Camera Remixer ($0.99 → Free, 18.5 MB): This unique photography app allows you to create some truly wacky compositions by freezing objects in their place. It’s for children and adults who want to have some fun with their photos.

Anything in your live camera feed is fair game. Just paint your finger over it and it will remain on the screen even when you move your camera. Keep painting until you come up with something truly different. Then save the image to your library or share it via Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, or email. The app also includes the ability to change the brush size, utilize either the front- or back-facing camera, and erase objects.

FreezePaint: The Live Camera Remixer is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 36 ratings.

Eureka: Quick Memo & To-Do List ($0.99 → Free, 21.2 MB): This simple productivity app puts your ideas and tasks into Notification Center. Eureka is perfect for anyone who needs quick access to their thoughts.

The great thing about Eureka is that it can be used by just about anyone. It doesn’t even have to replace your current go-to productivity app. You can use it in addition to it. Basically, whenever you have something you want to remember pop into your head, launch Eureka and record it. That idea or task will then be instantly transferred to Notification Center where you can always see it. Ideas and tasks within Notification Center can be marked off as complete and even moved to the top with a right to left swipe. That’s really all there is to it.

Eureka: Quick Memo & To-Do List is available for free today only (03/08). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 32 ratings.
