This photography is absolutely loaded with content. You’re able to apply filters and effects to specific areas of your photo by adding masks, or you can choose from the more than 100 presets to make quick work of it. iColoroma also includes more than 400 brushes to utilize, and a detailed how-to guide that will allow you to take advantage of its many features.

Anchor Pointer — GPS Compass (Find your parked car) ($1.99 → Free, 10.3 MB): Store GPS locations and find your way back to them with this navigation app. This is the perfect tool for adventurers and travelers alike. Especially those with an Apple Watch.

We really enjoy using Anchor Point because of its simplicity. Just tap the “Add Anchor” button to pinpoint your location, and attach a name and icon to it. The location will be stored in your personal list where you can also share it with your friends.

Universal:

Aureus ($1.99 → Free, 34.3 MB): Match elements to produce gold in Aureus. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to work on their memorization skills.

Take a good look at the board while it is lit up, because the lights will go out! You must then match elements to create electrical currents that will briefly illuminate the board, disintegrate the elements, and turn them into gold. While the board is briefly illuminated from creating a match, you will have another chance at seeing where elements are located and how they’re aligned. If you wind up not getting a good enough look, you can use a hint. The game includes three modes, loads of ways to upgrade your gold producing machine, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Aureus is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 22 ratings.

Blox 3D World Creator ($2.99 → Free, 44.2 MB): Create beautiful worlds from scratch using only taps in this fantastic entertainment app. It’s the perfect way to unlock your child’s creative side.

Based on the bestselling Blox 3D apps, this latest iteration opens a whole new world of creativity. Your child is able to start off with a blank canvas or they can choose from one of the six other pre-built worlds. Designing new structures and adding animated objects is as simple as tapping on an open spot within the world. Blox 3D World Creator includes everything from basic building blocks to animated wildlife. Your child can also change the time of day within their little world.

Blox 3D World Creator is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 24 ratings.

Boost 2 ($1.99 → Free, 12.2 MB): One of the best tunnel racers available in the App Store. Boost 2 is for anyone who enjoys thrilling arcade action.

Tilt your iDevice from side to side in order to steer around all of the obstacles and achieve the greatest possible distance. Fly over boost arrows to scurry down the tunnel even faster, but watch out for the colored squares, as they indicate an upcoming barrier. The game includes an ever-changing landscape, four modes, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Boost 2 is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 13331 ratings.
