About iOS Apps of the Day
iOS has over 600,000 apps. With so many apps out there, app discovery (aka finding new and useful apps) is extremely difficult. With our iOS Apps of the Day initiative, dotTech aims to change that. 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]

Beer Buddy – Barcode Scanner helps you find out more information about a particular beer as well as reviews them from other people. Beers can be found with either a search by name, barcode, and even check the top 50 beers, top by style, top by season and top by country. The easiest way to find something is to use the camera and take a photo of the UPC barcode to find the information on that beer. You can even review the beers you have tried and even save it to a list of your favorites, what you haven’t tried in the “on tap” list, what you have tasted, which ones you have rated, and a history of your barcode scans. You can find out local restaurants that serve beer which unfortunately doesn’t tell you what they serve, but they do provide other locations that also serve beer like beverage stores, bars, and breweries.

Desk Bell allows you to ring the same bell that you would find on the front desk of a hotel to alert some bell hop on staff. You can get that same sounding ding just by tapping it, but if you try to get the same feeling like you would press on the button constantly by tapping constantly it will not work. The only way to get that going is just to shake the iPhone which really gives you the noise satisfaction, but it really doesn’t feel the same. It is still a fun app to have once in a while.

Call of Atlantis is a match up game that is unlike others out there. You have a limited number of time to match up as many as you can while dropping parts of a piece you need to put together for each level. The parts of the puzzle needs to be put on the very bottom of the board in order for you to use it in the level. This is where you will get a unique mix of matching 3 or more and an adventure game all in one. The regular version has 54 different levels to play and 7 different ancient lands to discover while the HD version has 66 different levels in the 7 different lands.
