Here are some iOS 7 apps and games that are well optimized to take advantage of the powerful iPhone 5s 64 bit processor and iOS 7.
Infinity Blade III
costs $7 on iOS
One of the best tests for the new iPhones is the graphically intensive game Infinity Blade III. It’s a 3-D fantasy-battle game in which you fight your way through a mystical world, slashing with a sword controlled by finger swipes. The game is exciting, and the graphics are its most impressive feature. They are highly detailed and are about the same quality as graphics on a gaming PC a few years ago.
costs $1 on iOS Testing the new smartphones’ camera is a must. But no matter how good the camera is, there’s always room for improvement. A cool photo-effects app is TiltShiftGen 2, which adds a special distortion to a photograph so it looks like an image of a miniature or model, instead of a photo of the real world. The app looks great on iOS 7, and the controls are all simple, with intuitive gestures.
Free on iOS Apple’s own music-playing app is built into iOS, but for a different experience, try checking out the free Soundwave app. This app is about discovering new music via a social network. For example, it can show music that your Facebook friends have played recently. More exciting is the “music map” feature, where you draw a circle on a map of your current location and the app tells you what people are listening to in that area. You can even hear snippets of music, so you can decide if you’d like to buy it later. Finally, remember to check out the “near me” tab in Apple’s App Store app, which may uncover many more cool new apps that people nearby have downloaded.
