iOS apps you need right now
Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
The good: PhotoToaster is one of the best ways to add effects to your images, and features an excellent interface layout for giving your images a really cool look.
The bad: Like many apps, PhotoToaster has begun to add in-app purchases, but there are several included filters that do the job nicely.
The cost: 99 cents
The bottom line: There are tons of image editors in the App Store, but PhotoToaster is easy to recommend, with its slick and simple interface, helpful menus to get you started, and extremely impressive results.
Angry Birds Star Wars HD
Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
The good: Angry Birds Star Wars does just enough with new worlds and new Star Wars-themed birds to add variation to an already great game mechanic.
The bad: The app is not universal to both phones and tablets so youll need to purchase it twice if you want to use the game on both.
The cost: $2.99
The bottom line: With new birds, new powers, and a ton of new levels to explore set in the Star Wars universe, Angry Birds Star Wars is a worthy purchase, even if youve played all the previous games.
Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
The good: Netflix for iOS gives you great-looking streaming movies and shows. New interface elements make browsing through scenes easier.
The bad: The streaming library is only a fraction of the larger DVD library. You still cant add to or change your DVD queue via the app.
The cost: Free
The bottom line: If you dont mind the limited streaming library, the Netflix app is a great way to watch movies, and the new interface elements make it easier to use.
FIFA Soccer 13
Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
The good: FIFA Soccer 13 is not only the best soccer game, but the best sports game on an iOS device. New skill moves are easier to pull off, making them integral to the game. Precise controls and fast-paced action make for excellent game play.
The bad: Skill levels still feel too far apart. Poor camera selections make playing on an iPhone difficult, with very small players forcing you to bring your iPhone much closer than youd like.
The cost: $6.99
The bottom line: If you want a great soccer game for iOS, FIFA 13 hits the mark on almost every level. With tons of teams, new skill moves and online multiplayer, this is the sports game to beat on iOS.
