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]

American Red Cross: Shelter View

American Red Cross: Shelter View will be helpful in the event you are in an emergency situation. In the map mode you can see which shelters are open in case you are in need of one. The map mode will give you a lot of information like the agency managing the shelter, capacity of the shelter and current population, the associated disaster event and the specific shelter address and location. You can even look up a lit of shelters in the list view, or you can follow the news which once pressed you will be taken to Safari with the news posted on the American Red Cross’ site. The information provided updates the shelter information from the NSS every 30 minutes. Also current populations are typically updated every noon and midnight when shelters are open and providing assistance. Everyone needs a plan especially when disaster strikes, and at least this would make things a little better than figuring this out on your own.

Poker Jewels Solitaire

Poker Jewels Solitaire is a game that combines puzzle strategy with making a poker hand. All you need to do is clear the gold tiles to progress to the next level. All you need to do is get at least Jacks or better in order to get the hand and clear the board. You have to clear the gold tiles in the allotted number of moves you can make for that level. If you do not succeed the game will end. There is a swap button that will swap two of the tiles if you ever get stuck, however there will be points deducted from your level’s score. If you clear the board in less moves you will gain more points for that level.

This app should have some in-app purchase to remove the ads in the game since ads can be annoying so maybe one day we will see that pop up in the future.

Price: Free (Ad supported)

Version discovered: 1.2

Requires: iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad; iOS 3.0 and up
