Friday is a happy day for most people since it means the weekend has almost arrived. For iPhone users, however, Fridays are bittersweet because they mean there’s only one more list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free to enjoy. Well, it’s here, and hopefully it’s good enough to tide you over until Monday. If not, you can always check back in Thursday’s post, where you’ll find a few more premium apps that are still free downloads.

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.

Mic’d

Normally $2.99.

“Best New App” – Apple
Mic’d is the beautifully simple recording app that was made with the Apple Watch in mind. We cut the clutter so that nothing stands in the way of you and the recording you’re about to make.

* Record on both iPhone and Apple Watch
* Playback on both iPhone and Apple Watch
* Use your watch as a remote to control iPhone recording and playback directly from your wrist.
* Share your recordings with just a few taps
* iCloud automatically backs up your recordings and makes them easy to share

Mic’d for iPhone stands alone as a recording gem. With the Apple Watch, the things you can accomplish are limitless. Never again miss the moments in life that matter most. Happy recording.

Here’s a bit more detail…
Mic’d does not need the watch at all. It works just wonderfully on it’s own. If you do have a watch, however, then from your wrist, you can tell your iPhone to start and stop recording. Then you can tell your iPhone to playback those recordings.
So many fun things to do when using your watch as a remote. But the watch is also a great standalone device. You can record and playback audio without even having your phone around.
If you just want to know if your phone is recording or paused, just glance at your watch. Then start or stop it again with a tap.

Mic’d supports VoiceOver accessibility.
