Everyday we post three apps, allowing our readers to discover new apps, daily. Enjoy! [Subscribe to our iOS section to never miss an article: RSS Feed | E-mail]

You can browse what is available, and if you are interested you can share it on Facebook or Twitter, save the image as wallpaper, or order the T-shirt.

Don’t be fooled by what the app’s description of what T-shirt sites are available on the app. The app only has Untee, Teefury, Shirtaday, and Shirt.Woot.  Hopefully the developer will have other sites available since there are so many on the internet.

Befuddled

Befuddled is a word game that progressively gets more challenging as you play it. At the start you have just plain wood tiles for you to spell your words that you can create with three letters or more. When you reach higher levels, additional tile types like marble, jade, glass, and ruby will begin to fall along with the wood style. You can only spell words by using one single type of tiles. You get some special abilities that would help you in case you get stuck.  These abilities are small and big bombs, change materials, buy tiles, move x2 multiplier, swap tiles, scramble tiles, kill tiles by texture.

There are a tutorial and a help menu system included in the game to help you in case you don’t understand how to play. There are four different difficulty levels and has an over 450,000 word dictionary.

Price: $1.99

Version discovered: 2.0.1
