A new month, a new collection of free apps with which to fill up your iPhone and iPad. Today, we’ve got an interesting assortment of productivity apps, games and one of the most stunning speedometers I’ve ever seen on a mobile device.

MUST SEE: Apple’s advertising game is finally back on track

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Focus

focus

Normally $0.99.

Everyone has dreams. To achieve your dreams you need two things: A goal and a plan. And you need to decide which steps to take today. Focus helps you to concentrate on what is next!

TASKS FOR TODAY:

The center piece of the app is a list of tasks for today. You can easily create new tasks and reorder existing tasks with a few simple swipes. Focus is smart. It will detect reminders while you type stuff like “Do laundry at 5 pm” or “Get a new bike next week”. You can also manually add reminders.

SNOOZE AND SCHEDULE:

In order to concentrate on whats next its important to get the things out of your mind which are for later. But you want to be sure you will get reminded when they are due. In Focus you can set reminders right away but Focus also has great snooze options. With a swipe to the left you will be able to postpone tasks to whenever its the right time … 5 minutes, 3 hours, next week … This way you can be sure you won’t forget those items and you can concentrate on whats next.

HABITS:

There are things you have to do regularly to achieve your goals … like e.g. exercise. You can also create repeated tasks/ habits in Focus. Just like scheduled or snoozed tasks they will be automatically added to your list of task when they are due.

HOW TO GET STARTED:

Here is a good way to start using focus. You can create these two habits for every day:

1. In the morning open Focus to see tasks for today
2. In the evening review finished tasks and create new for tomorrow

Intro to Colors

intro-to-colors

Normally $4.99.

With Intro to Colors, the world of colors comes alive. Inspired by the famous Montessori Color tablets, this dynamic and interactive app will guide your children through an appreciation of color, from the concrete to the abstract.

——

YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN

· The basic foundations of color
· Primary & Secondary Colors
· Color Shades & Gradients
· To identify, match and name colors
· To mix, paint and create colors
· To seek, find and select colors
· Fine motor skills

Intro to Colors is a universal app that will work on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices. The app is optimized for iPhone 5 and retina screens. The app features these activities:

——

PRIMARY COLORS

Learn to identify the primary colors, in a series of guided, interactive exercises using the color tablets. Your child will drag, match and tap on red, yellow and blue.

SECONDARY COLORS

Learn to identify, select and name the secondary colors, in a number of engaging activities using the color tablets.

GRADIENTS

Learn to appreciate gradients with the color wheel and by arranging the color tablets from light-to-dark or dark-to-light.

PAINT

Unleash your creativity on this blank canvas with this painting exercise. In the Montessori classroom, we provide only three colors (red, yellow, and blue) when painting. This constraint empowers children to mix colors and create new ones. Your child will learn that the three primary colors serve as the foundation for all colors.

SEARCH

Explore these creative artist scenes in this seek-and-find activity. Your child will listen for, find, and select the correct color as a fun way to recap their understanding of color.
