Today’s Best Apps: Koloid, MyHipList And Axiom

The App Store takes delivery of hundreds of new apps per day. The overwhelming scene makes it possible to easily overlook an exciting game, valuable productivity suite, etc. However, we have a solution. Today’s Best Apps tackles this problem by providing you with a handpicked and tested list of apps that are truly worth your consideration each and everyday.

Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls.


Koloid – hand developed photography by 19TH CENTURY APPS SP Z O O ($0.99, 12.1 MB): This creative camera app offers an enjoyably nostalgic feeling for passionate photographers by bringing back the darkroom experience. Specifically, your iPhone becomes a development tray where tilting swashes around the collodion. The action not only brings back a great hands-on feel, it also provides a physically unique flare to the final product with elements of imperfection. If that weren’t enough, every black and white photo is elegantly shared using a simple white border that contains a date stamp, plus optional title, description, and even signature.

MyHipList by IGiveReceive, LLC ($0.99, 6.4 MB): Help others and yourself discover great new things by sharing favorite movies, TV shows, books, songs, music albums, and YouTube videos through what are dubbed HipLists. The main HipList consists of current choices in each of the aforementioned categories. Every item on the list has a link to iTunes, the ability to hear previews and watch song and video picks, as well as the possibility of deeper insight via the “Your Take” section. In addition, there are Master lists that hold the last ten top selections you’ve submitted. HipList friends have instant access to your picks, although, the primary (current) and custom HipLists may also be shared in full or as individual items via Twitter or Facebook. Use of the app requires linking to a Facebook account.


Axiom by Diwaniya Labs Inc. ($0.99, 24.8 MB): Encourage your kids to practice their math through this fun and adequately challenging educational arcade game. To complete each mission, i.e., level, children will maneuver a spaceship within a maze-like environment to collect the numbers and mathematical operators in the proper order before flying over the answer. If the problem is solved quickly enough, the young pilot can make a dash at collecting all three stars before they disappoint for the highest possible score and greatest victory. The game features top-down 2-D graphics, more than 80 levels spanning four worlds, tilt control, tutorial, as well as Game Center leaderboard and achievements.
