4 awesome paid iPhone apps you can download free for a limited time

We all spent last week rushing around trying to find the perfect gift for Father’s Day, and now it’s time to sit back and enjoy a gift for ourselves. App developers have a hard time competing for exposure now that there are about 115,000 applications in Apple’s iOS App Store, but one of the best ways to get some attention is to make your paid app free for a limited time. We’re always on the lookout for great paid apps that go on sale, and today we have four solid ones to share with you.

Remember, these apps are free to download only for a limited time. They were all free at the time this post was published, but these sales could end at any moment — so if you see something you like, you should click through to the App Store and download it immediately. More →

Paid apps gone free: List One for iPhone offers a unique twist on lists

Paid apps gone free: List One for iPhone offers a unique twist on lists

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced during his recent WWDC 2014 keynote presentation that his company’s App Store is now home to more than 1.2 million apps. By our estimation, approximately 1.19 million of them are list apps. Ok, perhaps the actual figure isn’t quite that high, but list apps need to offer users a unique feature set in order to separate themselves from the crowd.

Many apps look to do that by dumping in tons of features that might ultimately overwhelm the user and cause confusion. List One takes a different approach: It keeps functionality simple and straightforward, but allows users to customize the look and feel of their lists. More →

8 fantastic paid iPhone and iPad apps that are free for a limited time

Smartphones have been around for quite some time but truth be told, they weren’t terribly smart until the advent of on-device app stores. Apps had existed before, of course, but finding them and installing them was a huge pain that involved dealing with awful sites like Handango and then transferring files from your PC to a phone, so most people didn’t bother.

App stores changed all that and turned smartphones into devices that are always morphing, gaining new functionality with each app we install. The capabilities we’re now afforded are priceless — but they’re even better when the price is free. More →

Incredible photographs showcase some of Apple’s earliest prototypes

Apple’s designs have become so ubiquitous over the past ten years that’s it hard to remember a time when the company was struggling to find its identity. Early in Apple’s existence, the rising star of the industry brought in outside help to figure out how to make its products stand out. In fact, Frog, a design firm with studios all over the world, is credited with many of the earliest design prototypes for Apple’s future products. Of course, plenty of the designs were changed significantly from their conception (or scrapped entirely), but as Frog founder Hartmut Esslinger illustrates in his latest book, Keep it Simple, Apple might never have drawn so much attention without the assistance of his team. Among the stories, Esslinger includes some fascinating imagery of prototypes that never saw the light of day. We’ve included a few below, but head over the to The Verge to see the rest. More →
