You can even sync your notes with your Evernote account, as well as a number of other features to enjoy.

XnRetro gives the type of filters its name would suggest; retro filters that are as excellent as they are retro. Choose from a number of filter effects (vignetting, grain, etc), as well as color and light effects. It’s as simple as a few taps once you’ve chosen the photo you want to edit, and then you can share them instantly with Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, and more. If you’re looking for something a little different than Instagram, but just as easy to use, then XnRetro is the app you need.

Mutant Mudds is a platformer that harkens back to the arcade days of old. You will play as Max, the game’s hero, and your mission is to defeat your nemeses: the mutant mudds. Pick from an arsenal of weaponry and jetpack your way around a number of obstacles, and even between foreground and background items. With 60 levels of nonstop action, plenty of unlockable items and levels, and a whole lot more, Mutant Mudds is definitely worth checking out.

The premise of Unknown Orbit is that you have to work your planetary orb through a beautifully designed 3D planetary system. You’ll be floating, jumping, and flying in space, all through the use of your device’s motion sensor. Launch the planetary orb and guide it throughout different planets and their terrains, floating out into space and beyond while you interact with stars and nebulae. Grab as many snowballs as possible along the way in order to keep your life long and the game going, and enjoy an ethereal experience that is both challenging and relaxing.
