Best Free iPhone Apps

You’ve fought your way through yet another week, and now your reward has arrived. Behold: our final list of April covering paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. We have nine solid iOS apps for you to check out today, so grab them while they’re on sale. There are also still a few freebies in Thursday’s post, so be sure to download those as well.

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.


Normally $2.99.

Most email clients group emails by conversations. In addition to conversation grouping, Eπvelope uses fuzzy logic techniques to find and group ‘similar’ emails letting you easily consume related emails or delete entire clusters.

– not received a reply to
– from people who are sending you for the first time.
– unread mails today
– recently viewed

AUTOMATIC MAIL GROUPING (Optimized for US users)
Emails are automatically grouped into predefined categories (Money, Tickets, Registration, Receipts, Discounts).

– Senders can be tagged into one of the predefined categories (Money, Discounts, Tickets, Receipts)
– You can create your own sender category to filter emails such as Family, Football Club, Kids school, …

MONEY INSIGHTS (Optimized for US users)
Key money information from Receipts, Bills, Statements, Alerts is extracted and displayed within the mail timeline.

Create handwritten signatures or insert your own logo / image in the signature

Add a reminder to follow up on emails with convenient options or a specific date & time.

Create reusable pieces of text & images that you can insert into your mail responses or compositions.

With just 1-Tap, Delete, Add a Reminder to Follow up, Flag / Unflag or Mark as Unread.

“…Conservatively, this app has reduced my mail handling time by 60%…” [About clustering feature]
