July 12, 2015

Go from zero to 5K, train your brain with math problems, and send your little ones on playdates 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:

aNote – Screenshot note ($2.99 → Free, 4.9 MB): Mark up screenshots and photos with aNote. This handy extension is perfect for those who constantly find themselves in need of sharing annotations.

Apple’s extensions in iOS 8 can come in handy, especially when they come in the form of aNote. Whenever you need to point out something on a website or within a photo, simply tap the share button within Safari or Photos and activate the aNote extension. You can then annotate the shot by drawing all over it with a variety of colors, adding shapes, or adding text. Your annotated shots can be saved or shared. It’s remarkably simple, but if you’ve never used an extension within iOS 8 before, aNote comes with a quick set of instructions to help you out.

aNote – Screenshot note is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3-star rating with a total of 30 ratings.

Atomic Ball ($4.99 → Free, 24.4 MB): You’re going to be breaking a lot more than bricks in Atomic Ball. It’s for fans of Brick Breaker-style arcade games.

This just may be the most stylish Brick Breaker-style game you’ll ever play. Guide your paddle around the screen in order to bounce the ball into the highly interactive objects. Try to collect the power-ups and credits that fall while avoiding the power-downs.

Nonagon Pro – Mathematical brain training ($0.99 → Free, 1.8 MB): Match the current number to the target number in Nonagon. It’s for anyone who wants to train their brain.

Nonagon will put your math skills to good use. It offers four different modes: Normal, Timer, Negation, and Impossible. In all four modes the goal is generally the same: hit the target number within nine turns. You’re able to accomplish this seemingly simple task by punching numbers on the pad and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing them. You’re limited to the numbers on the pad, so there is quite a bit of strategy involved, especially since you can’t undo entries.

Nonagon Pro – Mathematical brain training is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.
