Apple says “INKS is a beautiful game with a twist on the classic pinball genre. As a ball is launched onto the table, it hits paint pockets that explode in splashes of colorful ink that spread and blend into each other. The compositions created are gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces of art. The mixing and blending effects of ink was heavily researched and replicated with custom shaders and Metal APIs.”

6. Auxy

Apple says “Auxy is an audio creation app with more than 4,000 5-star ratings. Its clean and minimalist style lets people create great modern music in a snap. We loved this app because of its performance, non-intrusive on-boarding experience, satisfying touch feedback, modern appearance, and deep integration with Core Audio that allows the Auxy team to build a powerful custom sound engine.”

7. dJay Pro

Apple says “An Apple Design Award winner from 2011, dJay Pro has continued to innovate and stay in lockstep with every new OS release or device. dJay Pro was selected as an Apple Design Award winner because it sets new benchmarks for performance, features, use of Apple technology, multi-device support, and accessibility.

8. Linum

Apple says ” Linum is a puzzle game where the goal is to connect nodes to their landing points. The beauty of Linum is in its simplicity: with a clean UI and simple rule-set, Linum challenges users to complete levels with the fewest moves possible. As the number of nodes increases, complex puzzles are revealed that challenge even the best players.”
