Every home project is different, which is why Angle Meter Pro offers so many ways to measure. You’re able to hold your iDevice’s edge up against an object or lay it flat and see the angle measurement in real-time. You’re also able to point the camera at an object or import a photo from your library to make a measurement. If something feels off, the app can be calibrated for better accuracy.
Angle Meter PRO is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.
Don’t let its simple looks fool you. Hexagonal is one challenging puzzle game. The idea is to fill each of the hexagons in a cluster with a single color before the timer in the middle hits zero. You’re able to fill in a hexagon with a color by tapping on it when the one you want appears. What makes the game truly difficult is that as you progress you’ll be required to manage a total of five clusters, all of which will be counting down at the same time. Good luck with a that.
Hexagonal! is available for free today only (10/07). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 11 ratings.
Screen Candy is all about mixing and matching. Just swipe horizontally across the three separate sections to browse through the custom patterns and illustrations.

Let Screen Candy choose for you with the randomizer option.

With a name like Effexy, it’s no wonder the app is all about its interactive effects. You’re able to choose from 10 interactive effects, like liquefy, melt, and motion blur, and then drag your finger across your photo to dramatically alter it. Effects and filters can be layered to create something wholly unique. You’re also able to adjust the intensity of each effect and the parameters of your photo. Your creations can be shared via Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, or Instagram.

Journeys comes highly recommended today because there’s no other app like it in the App Store. It allows you to visualize customer experiences by mapping them with icons. Just drag and drop experience icons, like travel time, location, dialogue, and motivation, onto the map. The vertical position of each icon indicates whether the experience was positive or negative. You can also attach images, audio notes, videos, and locations to each experience. Maps can be duplicated, shared, and exported as PDFs.
