Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that were on sale for free was one of our best of the week, but we’re going to outdo ourselves with Thursday’s list. Not only have we found some really great paid iOS apps that are currently on sale for free, we’ve managed to dig up 10 of them today, making this our biggest list of the week.
When some iPhone fans decide to try out Android, some of them find a lot of things about it that they really like. Others, however, decide they can’t stomach using Google’s mobile platform for even a day. Business Insider’s Matt Johnston has been trying to get used to Android for the past eight months and he’s described it as an utterly miserable experience that he’s regretted right from the very start. In a new essay posted on Wednesday, Johnston describes the palpable sense of relief he’s felt ever since ditching Android for the iPhone 6 Plus. More →
As I discussed on the podcast last week and again on Monday, I got an Apple Watch. Ahead of the Watch’s launch, I said several times that I couldn’t have been more excited professionally and less excited personally for the device; my love of mechanical watches and my experiences with the terrible smartwatches that were already on the market made Apple’s watch a boring proposition for me.
Or so I thought. More →
Our posts on paid iPhone and iPad apps that go on sale for free comprise our most popular recurring series by far.

Today, we’ve got eight great options for you and they’re all free for a limited time. There are also still a few free apps in yesterday’s post as well, so be sure to check that post out before those sales end. More →
Facebook isn’t the only company that’s bringing more and more complex features to its messaging app that go beyond the app’s main purpose. Just like Facebook, other apps are considering similar features, with particular emphasis on e-commerce capabilities.
Tango, a messaging app that has more than 300 million users, on Tuesday released an update to its mobile applications that brings shopping features to users, integrating products from two major partners: Walmart and Alibaba. More →
This past January, I shared the story of how I lost 50 lbs in just three months, and I wrote about how technology helped me do it. More important than the amount of weight I lost and the speed at which I lost it were the lifestyle changes I made and the good habits I formed along the way, thanks largely to some good advice and some good apps.
But a huge piece of the puzzle was still missing, and I think I just found it. More →
A pair of ex-Googlers is bringing another player to the news app space today with their launch of Spotter, an app that crawls hundreds of news sites to try to bring users information that matters to them and could help their careers.
The app, which launches first for the iPhone and iPad, and is headed to the Web and Android soon, was developed by Jon Emerson and Tom Charytoniuk, both of whom worked on various aspects of the Google+ experience, among other things, while they were with the search giant.
They built Spotter, they explained, on the premise that the most relevant articles to a user can come from anywhere – from Medium posts to The New York Times and everything in between. And rather than jump into different streams or manually pick content creators to follow, their goal is for Spotter itself to do the heavy lifting of picking and choosing. More →
There are still a few solid paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free in yesterday’s post that you can grab if you hurry, but today we have a fresh new batch for you. Tuesday’s list features seven apps in total, but there are some truly great apps on today’s list including one that normally would cost you $20 to buy on the iPhone and another $20 on the iPad.

Google is supposedly working on making Android Wear smartwatches compatible with iPhone, which might be a clever way to combat Apple’s popular Apple Watch. However, while Google has yet to release Android Wear support for iOS, you can already connect Android Wear devices to iPhone and iPad.
If there is one single app that we would miss most if it ever vanished, there is no question that it would be the Google app on either Android or the iPhone. Beyond being a portal into the amazing world of Google Now on both platforms, it provides fast and easy access to a Google search box, which you can either type in to perform a search or use voice dictation.
But as many people know, Google search is about much more than just hunting down answers to your questions or finding the right webpage to explain how something works. Google can perform all sorts of functions for you — in fact, Google can probably replace more apps and services than you realize.
Here are five great Google tricks you can use on your smartphone, tablet or computer, and you might not know how you ever lived without them. More →
We’re starting this week off with an important mission, diving deep into Apple’s iOS App Store and digging through dozens of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. Why do we subject ourselves to this? To ensure that we can pick out the cream of the crop, and show you a hand-picked selection of the best paid iOS apps that can be downloaded for a limited time without spending a time.
Today’s list is a great one, and the first app on the list is probably one of our favorite productivity apps ever. As always though, these sales could end at any time so be sure to hurry! More →
The Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches you can buy, but it’s far from being perfect. The main problem with it for many users is its battery life. You’ll need to recharge the device nearly on a daily basis, even though the Watch can beat Apple’s own usage estimates. That means Apple Watch owners now have to worry about charging two devices and packing two different cables when traveling. More →
