Another week is drawing to a close, but we can’t let our readers start their weekends without one last round of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are currently available for free for a limited time. Beyond the few apps from yesterday’s post that can still be downloaded at no charge, we have a fresh batch of seven apps worth a combined $41 that are all absolutely free for a limited time.
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.
Normally $3.99, currently free.

The features of the service are split between the App and its Website.
In a nutshell, the App only tracks, everything else is done on the Website, like viewing live routes, setting alerts etc.
> The app is very simple to use, just tap anywhere on the screen and it’ll start tracking. This makes it safe to use when you are driving.
> The iPhone is tracked at intervals of 5 seconds below 25mph(40kmh) and 10 seconds at speeds above (this can be configured from the settings).
> There are multiple tracking modes:
–“continuous tracking”: The iPhone is tracked continuously until you stop tracking. Some businesses track for 10-15 days continuously to analyze business activity over a period.
–“smart tracking”: The App automatically terminates and starts new routes when it detects stoppage and restart of movement. This way you don’t need to bother about keeping track of tracking and this mode is generally used by taxi’s.
–“period tracking”: In this mode a new route is automatically created after a pre-defined period (24hrs default). Press and hold the “smart tracking” button for 3 seconds to enable this mode. This mode is generally used by businesses who want to create a new route automatically every day or every half a day etc.
–“super tracking”: Like “continuous tracking”, except that every coordinate is tracked, nearly 40 a min. Press and hold the “continuous tracking” button for 5 seconds to enable this mode. This mode is generally used by bikers, joggers and GIS experts to get as detailed information as possible on the route.
–All tracking modes can be configured from the iPhones Settings App.

> Data gets stored offline if you get out of a network and is automatically synchronized when you get into a network again.
> The app will let you know, using local alerts, when it isn’t able to track, this generally happens when the iPhone is inside a building or a glovebox. The App will also let you know when things get back to normal.
> Live route updates.
> Stoppage Analysis: With this you can see where the vehicle stopped and for how long and this can provide great insights into the route.
> Location and Speed Alerts: Set location and speed alerts and know when the vehicle is speeding or is close to a location.
> Download the GPX or CSV of the route from the site.
> Large Data limits: Your last 1000 routes can be viewed and exported.
> All the metrics and graphs, that you can imagine: Distance, Time, Average Speed, Cruising Speed, Altitude Ascent/Descent, Average Accuracy, Speed/Altitude/Accuracy Charts.
> Route data can be shared. Businesses use this to allow a central location/dispatcher to monitor all vehicles.
> Individual routes can also be shared publicly to Facebook etc.
