About iOS Apps of the Day

Apps for June 14, 2012

Flash Hero

Flash Hero modifies your photos either from your library or taken from the camera on the fly. All images will fit to screen so you won’t have to zoom in the picture to fill in the screen so you could inspect and modify the photo if you wish. You have the capability to use quite a number of filters like greytones, sepia, black and white, posterize, and invert. If you need to modify any to fit your needs you can use the slider bar to adjust the threshold of what you want the picture to look better than the original snap shot. You can always undo if you make a mistake, and you can save the photo as a new entry or email it to yourself or a friend.

Great Solitaire!

Great Solitaire! is your everyday standard solitaire game with a Chinese feel to it. On the main screen you will see a panda waiving his arms. You will hear the music rather loudly, and it would be nice to turn it down instead of turning it completely off. In this game you get three levels of game play which are classic, level, and challenge. In classic you play the game that you don’t have to rush whereas the level mode you have to win at each hand before heading to the next level to which you have a total of 800 different levels in this stage. In challenge you get to play muliples of solitaire games that are grouped by a level stage.

The treasure room has items that you can unlock by spending coins that you collect from within the game in any types you play. You can buy coins from within the app to unlock more rather than slowly collect the coins by playing again and again. There are over 10,000 sets of cards to which you get to play with a new set every game you play. This game has an autosave and restore feature which is good in case you get a phone call which pulls you out of the game. The cards play in the drag and drop function, and you can double tap the cards when you put them in the finished piles.
