Friday might be Galaxy S10 release day, but we’ve also got something special lined up for Apple fans. That’s right, it’s your daily roundup of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free. You’ll find eight different apps on today’s list and they’re all free for a limited time only, so grab them while you still can.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any app 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 anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Some apps may have additional in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

HOW IT WORKS

As the name “Step Out!” implied, the only way you can turn off this alarm clock is STEPPING out of your bed (you still can snooze – in a limited duration). It uses advanced image recognition and step tracking technologies to check whether you’re far away from your bed.

After ringing, the app asks you to capture another photo of a specified place, it should be where you usually be every time you wake up, such as the bathroom, the kitchen, … So you just take a photo and do your routine work like washing your face or preparing breakfast.

Another alternative is using the step counter, which simplifies this process into just nothing. You wake up and go to wherever you want with the device.
