It’s Leap Day 2016! This day only comes once every four years and if you ask us, the best possible way to celebrate is to check out some awesome paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. Today’s list includes 12 solid iOS apps that you’ll definitely want to check out before these sales end and they go back to being paid downloads.
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.

** BUILD NEW HABITS, ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS **
LifeHacker: “The app is responsive, nice to look at, allows you to set daily reminders, and just works better than the others.”
Achieve your goals by defining the regular activity that will get you closer to them and then tracking it. Whether it’s “Write a Book” by “Spend 1 hour writing every day” or “Get Fit” by “Visit the gym 3 times a week”, simply defining the actions and watching your progress will help you get there.
Once you’ve defined your goal, you use Goal Streaks to track the days you work on it. Build up a “streak” by hitting the schedule you define and then try to make the streak as long as possible. Use the daily notification to remind yourself to stay on track.
Goal Streaks lets you:
* Add as many goals as you like
* Review all your goals in a single dashboard view (along with the previous week of activity)
* Tap on a date to mark that day ‘done’
* View your activity in a full-screen calendar view (smoothly scrolling from month to month)
* Tap and hold on a date to add a note
* Set your target streak length
* Optionally, set a daily reminder for each goal at a time you choose
