Notable apps and updates, Feb. 16

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they’re popular and deserve mention. Here are today’s picks.


Game Scorpion has debuted Knights of Riddle 1.0, a fantasy adventure game along the lines of Zelda or Final Fantasy offering old school style hack and slash battles along with colorful graphics.

The game features quests and puzzles as well as battles and storylines. This is the first in a series of games in the universe of Ryina with a third person shooter as well as an eSports and visual novel/story style game planned for the future as part of the overall set of games.

Knights of Riddle requires iOS or iPadOS 10 or later. It’s free, and available at the App Store.

Applavia has launched Blur Photo Editor 5.3.1 an update to the — as you might guess from the name — photo blurring app.

It allows users to blur faces, backgrounds, and additional subjects in photos to add an extra layer of privacy or create a depth-of-field effect. Blur Photo Editor is available for the iPhone and iPad.

Users can edit and add DSLR and portrait mode effects to existing photos, using an array of blur effects including: basic blur, Hexa pixel, point, pixelate, zoom, motion, crystal, and position blur effects. Blur Photo Editor is free, but does offer in-app purchases.
