We go out of our way each day here at BGR in an effort to bring you the best paid iPhone and iPad apps out there that are made available for free for a limited time. While the cost of an app definitely isn’t always an indication of its quality, today’s batch of paid apps on sale for free carries a total value of $87, which may very well be a single-day record for this series. The best apps of the bunch aren’t the priciest though, so be sure to take your time while checking out today’s list.
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 are free at the time this post is published. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.
This is definitely one of the sleekest and most simple goal tracker apps we’ve come across.
Live a full life. Make it count.
Full is an app that helps you track, measure, and visualize what’s important to you. Use the app to count and monitor your monthly goals. Do you want to run 15 times? Read two books? Call your mom and tell her you love her? Whatever is important to you we help you track it with our simple swipe gestures and stoplight indicators that tell you if you’re on pace.
> Add an unlimited amount of daily, weekly, and monthly goals
> Quantify how many times you want to achieve your goal
> Swipe to ADD, SUBTRACT, EDIT, or DELETE your goals
> Visualize your goal history to see how you did and improve next month
We’re excited to relaunch version 2.0 of Full into the App Store.
Full is always a bargain at $0.99, but right now it’s free.

Lumen Trails Time+
Track anything and everything you could possibly want to track with this pricey app that’s now free.
Lumen Trails lets you take notes, make lists and keep track of other things in your life, such as time, workouts, expenses, calories, food, weight, sleep or anything else you can think of. Thousands of people use it every day, and they love it because it truly makes a difference in their lives.
“I’ve been using Lumen Trails for 6 months and continue to love it. One of my most sticky and useful apps ever on my phone.” – David D’Souza
The beauty of Lumen Trails is that you can track absolutely anything. There are tons of other apps that allow you to track one or two things, for example, calories and weight. But what if you decide to track something else? Say, how many cigarettes you smoke as you try to quit, your eating habits or even net worth? Lumen Trails is the app for that!
Instead of having one app for your to-do lists, one for tracking expenses, another one for tracking your weight, you can declutter your home screen and just have one app that does it all.
Designed exclusively for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, Lumen Trails is incredibly powerful, easy to use and looks beautiful on the Retina Display. It can even backup your data automatically to Google Drive, sync with iCloud and is fully accessible with Apple VoiceOver in 8 languages. There’s nothing that comes even close to it. And to top it all, your data is not locked on your iPhone. You can export it to Excel or Google Docs!
So what’s truly important to you right now? Your Health? Fitness? Finances? Productivity?
Track it and get things done!
:: Note to iPhone 5 & 5s users
Now you can ask Siri to find information for you and dictate right into Lumen Trails. For example, hold down the Home button and ask Siri: “How many calories are in a chicken sandwich?”. To start dictation, tap the microphone button on your keyboard and just start talking – your words will be turned into text.
:: Lumen Trails in 8 Colors
The 8 versions of Lumen Trails differ in the color of the icon and the sample categories to get you started. They all share the same core functionality and allow you to create as many custom categories as you wish.
Lumen Trails is normally $19.99, so this is a huge sale.
This nifty app is the exact opposite of a to-do app. It’s an already-did app.
When’s the last time you foiled a bank robbery? Rescued a kitten from a burning building? Complimented your mother-in-law?
Wonder no longer with Recur, the reverse to-do list that helps you keep track of all the amazing stuff you’ve done.
When you do something that you want to remember – like saving the planet from a race of evil sloths – just add a new event in Recur. You can check back at any time to see how long it’s been since that fateful day. If the Sloth-Men are foolish enough to attack (ever-so-slowly) again, you can refresh the event to update its counter and timestamp.
And as an extra tool for your utility belt, Recur comes with powerful repeating reminders to guarantee you’ll never forget the mundane stuff, like washing your cape or walking your invisible dog.
· See how long it’s been since you first acquired your superpowers
· Track how many times you’ve had to replace your sidekick
· Set up repeating reminders so you never forget to clean your secret base
· Import refreshed events into everyone’s favorite sadistic to-do list, CARROT
· Bask in the glory of a user interface designed specifically for iOS 7
This app is currently free, on sale from $1.99.
