The first few levels consist of just ones and twos, but things get crazy pretty quickly when large numbers and new kinds of modifier tiles enter the mix.

You can then jump right in and start taking photos or import them from your library. Private Camera Pro’s built-in camera allows you to utilize four shooting modes, including a video recording option. The app also includes iCloud support, the ability to create albums and sort your content, Wi-Fi transferring, and sharing via Facebook, Twitter, or email.

LeechTunes is simply beautiful. You’re able to select from 21 built-in skins and themes or make the app truly your own by utilizing a photo from your library as your background. The customizable gestures make it easy to control your music no matter if you’re in the car or on an outdoor adventure.

At the beginning of each level you will be asked to collect a specific number of ingredients. To collect an ingredient, just match three or more in vertical or horizontal lines. You are provided with a limited amount of moves in order to complete your tasks, so try to create large matches to earn power-ups and cascading combos. The game includes dozens of levels, and the ability to compete with friends on Facebook.

Cookie Jam is available for free today only (03/14). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 44849 ratings.
