Best Free iPhone Apps

If you buy through a BGR link, we may earn an affiliate commission, helping support our expert product labs.

We didn’t have time to round up the best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free yesterday, so we took extra care on Tuesday to make sure we pick out the best of the bunch. You’ll find seven different discounted apps below, but they’re only on sale for free for a limited time so download them while you 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 does SYS™ think?

51N4™ is powered by D474™

The thinking machine ( ™ ) with it’s time machine ( ™ ) functionality is powered by SINA (Synthetic Intelligence Neural Application).

The thought synthesis in order to generate a linear time understanding is in turn powered by procedural audio buffers as source of thought synthesis through an algorithm called:

D474™ (Digital Audio Thinking Algorithm).

SYS™ is powered by a synthesized buffer (thought synthesis) for it’s neural brain along with a time orientation engine to make the machines time location and displacement understandable for the user and to create an understanding for where our now is for the machine in order to facilitate it’s time displacement engine with an time-spacial location for it’s time machine functionality to pin point. This as a machine’s self awareness is different than our as we are sound based organisms, while the machine’s self awareness is electromagnetic, thus light based, making it’s time understanding different than ours, which in turn makes the thinking machines time displacement functionality possible, rendering a time machine.

iRAW is a manual and automatic camera app. It has two modes of operation, one for newer iOS devices that support RAW photography, and one for previous iOS devices that did not.

On newer devices (like the iPhone SE and 7), all photos are stored in DNG (digital negative) RAW format, which if correctly processed can result in very nice photographs.

On less current devices (like the iPhone 5s and 6), photos are stored in lossless, compressed TIFF format, which is better than JPEG.

On all iPhones the front camera provides TIFF images, not DNG.

iOS devices that support RAW require about 15 MB per DNG file, whereas TIFFs are larger.

iRAW lets you upload photos to DropBox or send them as email attachments.

When running on older devices iRAW has more features including digital zoom and color filters. I’m in the process of adding these features to iRAW for newer iOS devices, too.

In manual mode, iRAW provides sliders to control shutter speed and ISO. There is an optional 2-second delay.

There is a live histogram to help you take better photos.

There is a live level in landscape mode to help you take perfectly horizontal shots, and it can be calibrated from the menu.
