Share your photos and try out some new filters in Mobil – Share the Moment, today’s best (updated) iPhone App. Following it, we have Egg Dyeing 101 From Martha Stewart Living, an app that can help out nearly anyone this weekend with the Easter festivities. Fruit-dodging title 8Bit Ninja leads today’s fresh games and finally, there’s Gunman Clive, an old-style shooter and platformer that will leave players enthralled.

Mobli – Share The Moment update (iPhone, iPad) Free

Photo- and video-sharing app Mobli looks to do what apps such as Instagram and Color do for users, only better. Like those apps, it’s one part photography, providing ways you can alter your photos to make them look cooler, and one part social network, allowing you to post what you’ve taken and see what others are creating.

Mobli just got a big update with lots of new filters for both photos and videos, as well as features that will help make you better at capturing media using your smartphone. It also has a redesigned user interface that uses swipes for navigation, and a peer-to-peer messaging system that should make getting in touch with people you know and like through Mobli a lot easier.

Egg Dyeing 101 From Martha Stewart Living (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Easter Sunday is just a few days off, and Martha Stewart is looking to help you become an egg-dyeing expert before the big day. With that in mind comes Egg Dyeing 101, an app designed to help users make the best-looking Easter eggs they can, without a lot of special tools, a big bank account, or their own personal Easter bunny or golden goose.

Egg Dyeing 101 includes egg dye formulas that can help you get started from scratch, plus step-by-step video, how-to instructions and more to make you into some kind of egg-dyeing virtuoso. You can also share your egg dye designs with friends through the app, and learn how to make great Easter-themed crafts using eggs.

8Bit Ninja (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

From the makers of platformer 1bit Ninja comes its 8bit counterpart, a game that borrows a lot of its inspiration from Fruit Ninja. You play 8Bit, the titular ninja, as he skitters around a dojo attempting to avoid getting smashed by huge pieces of fruit that bounce through the level. It sounds easy, and it is – dodge fruit, score points.

The longer you stay alive in 8Bit Ninja, the better you do in the game overall. The longer you survive and the more experience points you earn, the more difficult the game become. Eventually, for example, you’ll face fruit from both sides and more. Money you earn can be used in 8Bit Ninja’s in-game store to earn more power-ups, and the whole thing is tracked on the title’s Game Center leaderboards.

Gunman Clive (iPhone, iPad) $1.99

Platformer Gunman Clive takes a lot of its inspiration from old-school titles such as Mega Man, but it brings a delightful sketch-like art style to bear on a game that has players running through the streets, shooting down bad guys who stand in his way and hope to kill him. If you’re a fan of Contra, you’ll see some influences in Gunman Clive; its side-scrolling shoot-’em-up nature makes it quite a bit of fun, and the art style keeps the title grounded and original.

Gunman Clive includes 16 levels to fight through, each with some pretty challenging obstacles to play against. You’ll also take on “dozens” of different kinds of enemies, including wolves, ducks and gunmen. You’ll also square off against some “epic” bosses during your time in the game, so come prepared to fight huge creatures when you fire up Gunman Clive.
