Dizy ($0.99 → Free, 21.7 MB): When you combine tile matching with Yahtzee, you get Dizy! Thanks to its familiar gameplay elements, Dizy is perfect for all casual gamers.

We love Dizy because it’s easy to learn, but difficult to master. The game board is made up of a five-by-five grid of randomly placed dice. At the bottom of the screen is a bucket of dice that you get to place to create combinations. Playable combinations are based on the game of Yahtzee, like three-of-a-kind, small straight, and full house. You’re also able to place dice anywhere on the board, even if they don’t create a match. The object of the game is to create huge combos, including cross combos, to earn the highest score.

Dizy is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

LensFlare ($1.99 → Free, 59.8 MB): Bring some life to your photos by adding realistic lens flares with this stunning effects app. It’s for fans of J.J. Abrams’ work. We kid, we kid! It’s for those that like to fiddle with photography effects.

The effects in LensFlare are so realistic, your audience won’t even know they were added after the fact. You’re able to choose from more than 55 types of lens flares, all of which can be repositioned with true-to-life results. Flares can also be layered on top of each other to create something totally unique. But a good effects app isn’t any good without photo editing options, but don’t worry, LensFlare has you covered with the ability to adjust brightness, tint, and aspect ratio.

LensFlare is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 283 ratings.
