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]

There are 379 units of measurement that is grouped from within 14 different categories which also includes a backspace key in case you mess up. The design on the iPhone and iPod Touch can be tricky to see as well as being overwhelming with how many different measurements there are in this app that you may not have heard of. The Universer Unit Converter Pro HD app includes more measurements which has 1025 units of measurement grouped within 53 categories.

My Great Recipes includes a good number of easy to make recipes that also include photos on how it is supposed to look like once you make it. There are recipe collections included in this app like warming soups, skillet suppers, treasured cookies & bars, and more. If you can’t decide what to cook, you can ask “Grandma” what to cook for that day, and you can also “ask Betty” if you have a cooking question which can be done by either e-mailing a question or send a voice message right from within the app. You can also create your own recipe although the only thing created was a new recipe book rather than recipes. You can also share recipes to your friends and family via email or Facebook.

Where’s My Dollar? is a game that you find as many dollar bills you can within the picture you are given. In order to reach the next stage, you have to find at least the number of dollar bills for the stage you are on. To keep things interesting, every time you play the location of the bills are randomized so you can get more replay value out of this game. You will get a postcard collectible at the end of each level, and even later stages make it more challenging to find these bills by throwing obstacles like falling leaves and a thick fog. You also have options to use certain power-ups to help you find some very tricky bills, but if you need more you will have to pay for them from within the app.
