The arrival of smartphones and apps has literally turned our world inside out. Especially the world of mobile apps has been exploding and blooming to control most of what we do. Therefore, finding right apps to download or use can actually be tricky and tiresome. If you are searching for a good app for the iPhone, iPad or an Android devices, here is the list of a few highly rated ones.
Metro Tasks: This app can help users create dynamic to-do lists to keep them on top of their tasks. The mainscreen of Metro Tasks is a drag and drop interface that features a notebook surrounded by different folders. The to-do workspace mimics realistic papers and folders while the dated and personal folders quickly display tasks by date or category. It also allows users to add images and contacts to these task notes. While using this app for the first time, users may find it a bit difficult to navigate through it. The developer has tried to overcome this issue with a tutorial that guides them into the app. Metro Tasks is compatible with iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later. It costs USD 6.99.
Arrows Puzzle: The objective of Arrows Puzzle Game is moving the arrows to their color-matching orbs by avoiding the obstacles. A level will get completed after all the orbs are filled. Getting high scores would unlock exciting new bonus levels. Moreover, achievements can also be unlocked throughout the game. Players can get more points by grabbing as many stars as possible while moving the arrows. With its 80+ levels Arrows Puzzle provides hours of mind-engaging fun. It has upgrade packages for USD 0.99 each, but finding this upgrade packages inside the app might need a bit of effort. Arrows Puzzle Game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 3.2 or later. It is a free app.
Dots and Boxes Party: Dots and Boxes is a simple game to learn, but can provide hours of entertainment. Dots and Boxes Party provides the new-age touch to this time killer game. After launching it, users can play this addictive game with their friends on Facebook or against the best AI on Android. From 3 x 3 to 9 x 9, it has a variety of board sizes, but the default 5 x 5 is the optimal one to start with, I think. Earning achievements would unlock more ways to customize the dots and boxes. At present, users can get into the game only with a Facebook account. It would look better if it provides more log-in options. Dots and Boxes Party requires Android 2.2 and up. This app is available for free.
If social networks make our lives more connected, mobile apps can make our lives so much easier. If you are new to smart devices and looking for equally smart mobile apps, I like to suggest these three apps.
