Welcome to a brand new week, which means a brand new set of five posts packed full of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. To start things off, we’ve got a nice list of eight premium iOS apps that are all on sale for free right now. They span a wide range of categories and functionality, but they all have one thing in common: They’re only on sale for free for a limited time, so you had better hurry.
MUST SEE: 10 best 3D Touch apps for the iPhone 6s
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.
Sand Garden is a highly realistic Japanese rock garden simulator. Adjust the ambience to your liking and create beautiful stylized landscapes through carefully arranged rocks and raked sand. The simulation is so effective you can almost feel the sand beneath your fingers.
Historically, sand gardens were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life. Rock gardens existed in Japan at least since the Heian Period (784-1185).
Features of Sand Garden include:
• Ultra realism
• 3D modeling of the sand
• Beautiful lighting scenes (including a soothing flickering candlelight)
• A variety of random rocks
• Many sand types to choose from
• Six unique raking tools
• Save your gardens
Create harmony today, and carry it around wherever you go with Sand Garden – Your very own realistic Japanese Zen Garden.

Lumen Trails is an omni tracker. It 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 HD 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 6s & 6s Plus 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.
A beautifully simple and free meditation app.
