Since the release of Mavericks and iOS 7, we have received numerous updates from developers, and some new releases that are worth noting. For the desktop, KAMI by State of Play Games Ltd, is a beautiful puzzle game that offers some impressive U.I. elements reminiscent of iOS applications. Kami is an Origami inspired puzzle game that allows you to explore various configurations in triangular form that evolve into various fields of color. The concept is simple: Fold and Fill. The application comes with options to play sound effects and soundtracks for a soothing meditative experience. iOS apps tend to offer the best experience in terms of the user interface, but KAMI is an app that is superbly designed for the desktop. It's currently $4.99 in the App Store.
Photography applications are available by the millions, but you rarely find one that you can value for its originality. LoryStripes by Pixite LLC is a fun and creative application that enables you to add stripes to your photos in ways you would never dream possible. I know what you're wondering. Why do I want to add stripes to my photos? Once you discover what the app can do, you will quickly become a convert. The app comes with an infinite array of striped patterns that can manipulated with a move tool and with a "cube" tool to create the illusion of depth. Once you decide on your linear patterns, you can adjust the color, add gradients, control the opacity, and even use draw and erase tools for further modification. You can pinch and zoom to fine tune you photo designs, and even additional linear patterns to the same project. Don't take my word for it! You must try this app out for yourself. The app is currently $1.99 in the App Store.
