Did you miss yesterday’s roundup of the best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free? Well definitely go back and check it out because there are still some freebies to be found. We’ve got a fresh list of apps for you to look through on Wednesday though, and you’ll find it below.
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.
Net Status – Server Monitor
Net Status lets you get a fast glimpse of what is happening now with your hosts, routers and other network devices connected to the Internet or LAN.
The tool checks network services your hosts run for availability and presents the information in a convenient way in order to speed up the diagnostics of network problems. With Net Status you can quickly and easily determine which hosts and services are down from your monitoring list.
Net Status employs asynchronous algorithms that allow Net Status to operate really fast. Fractions of a second are needed to check a host with quite a number of running services. Even problematic hosts won’t slow down the check process for a time much longer than a timeout you specify.
– Group hosts into multiple checklists
– Automatic scan of hosts for running services
– E-mail check results
– Predefined services for your convenience
– Possibility to add custom services
– Checks ICMP, TCP and UDP
– MAC address and hardware vendor lookup
– Wake on LAN or Wi-Fi
– Wake over the Internet (using proper routers)
– Ping hosts with integrated tool
– WHOIS hostnames, IP addresses
– Ultrafast asynchronous network I/O
Do you have a hard time setting a picture as your wallpaper? Do your pics look zoomed in?
Wallpaper Fix lets you freely resize and re-position your pictures quickly so that you can use them as your custom wallpaper backgrounds. (IAP required to unlock items)
You can not only fix your wallpapers but you can convert all your old wallpapers into new using blur, alpha and powerful photo editor.
You can also preview exactly how your wallpaper will look within the app before setting it as your background. It will save you time and you can make it look perfect before using it.
NOTE: New iOS needs wallpapers to be of a specific size. This app adds a border to your image so it shows your wallpaper exactly how you want it to be in full view and in center of the view.
There are no ads of any kind within this app.

Nice Trace – Traceroute
Keep your network under control with Nice Trace – the most advanced traceroute app for iOS. The tool traces the route to the host in the Internet using easy, user-friendly interface and animations. You will immediately get information about any possible bottlenecks and problems since Nice Trace never stops working. It continues to monitor the whole path to the network resource in real time and keeps you informed.
The specially designed asynchronous algorithm lets Nice Trace quickly pass through problematic hops not hanging on them, thus increasing the speed. Now you can reach the destination host fast like never before.
– Real-time path monitoring with packet loss detection
– Easily spot possible network bottlenecks
– Country of origin detection of the network owner
– Network range and AS number lookup
