The Northeast is about to be slammed by a cold front that will take temperatures down into the negative numbers. Know what’ll warm you up later this week? A whole bunch of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. Today’s post has 15 premium apps that are free downloads for a limited time, and you can grab even more if you head back to yesterday’s edition.

UP NEXT: This year’s best Android phones still might not be as fast as last year’s iPhone 6s

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.

mo.Today is a personal assistant that helps you see your daily events and to-dos in a very simple way.
Manage your days by moving freely from ‘Today’ to a day in the past or the future.
Access all of your built-in calendar events and reminders, conveniently organized in one screen.
With mo.Today’s unique ‘Expose’ feature, actively look for the tasks you are ‘able to do’, rather than passively checking ‘to do’ items.
Just experience it right now.


1. Collect your ‘today’ in one screen.
– mo.Today shows all of your schedules and appointments, to-dos and reminders in one screen, in chronological order. Simply open mo.Today to remind yourself what to do at any given moment.
– To-do items are listed in the order they need to be completed: “undone” tasks from yesterday appear first, followed by today, tomorrow and after, then “someday”; you don’t need to assign priorities manually to decide what to do next.
– Check your days at a glance with beautifully designed overview and list modes, and easily switch between the two.

2. Move between the dates with ease
– Not only can you simply swipe the date card to yesterday or tomorrow like a real diary, but you can also jump straight to any date you want using easy-to-switch navigation modes (weekly, monthly and yearly).
– Each card shows you how many days are left until (or have passed since) that date. You can quickly return to today by double-tapping the date card.

3. Expose in Advance
– mo.Today’s unique feature, ‘Expose’, makes to-dos scheduled for future dates visible whenever you want so that you can prepare for them in advance. Without having to set an alarm, you can check not only to-dos for today but also the ones to be prepared in advance simply by opening mo.Today. Experience the joy of pro-active life with mo.Today’s Expose in Advance.

4. Date Calculator
– mo.Today’s convenient date calculator lets you quickly figure out the number of days in between two dates, or jump to the date any given number of days away from the current date card you are looking at. How many days away is today from the first day of AD 1? When is the 1000th-day anniversary since the first time you met your girlfriend? The answers are just a few taps away with mo.Today’s date calculator.

5. Change your own background
– Translucent UI of mo.Today lets your own images be the elegant background. Choose one from mo.Today’s several built-in offerings, or any images in your photo library.
– You can customize the look of mo.Today with Dark/Bright skin themes and six color combinations — make your own flavor of mo.Today.

Soooooo easy, yet so hard to master – this app will turn your brain to mush and drive you to despair.

Frax is an art program that puts the “equations of nature” in the palm of your hand. Frax is powered by fractal geometry, the same principle that creates patterns of self-similarity in our natural world. From spiral galaxies to hurricanes, from tree limbs to branching blood vessels, the universe is filled with endless variation and staggering beauty. Frax visualizes this natural geometric code, so you can explore vast animating digital landscapes and make a masterpiece on your touchscreen.

Zoom deep into your creations. Use multi-touch gestures to fly through and explore intricate shapes and patterns. Tilt-to-steer through animating digital worlds, as you challenge yourself to chart a course for a long and beautiful flight –all at a depth range of a trillion-to-one.

Unleash your inner artist with complex color gradients to smoothly tint and shade your fractal shapes, two light sources for glossy reflections, and novel textures. The combinations are endless: supersmooth or wildly chaotic, metallic sheen or pearly white, subtle shades, stark monochrome or screaming supergloss. Or upgrade to Pro to access almost 100 parameters and controls!

Then share your creations with your friends via Facebook, Twitter and text. Or invite other users to step into your animating world by sharing a live preset link. You can render high-quality images to your photo library or create ultra-high quality 50 Megapixel renders with an IAP. And for the first time, you can now record VIDEO of your Frax animations directly within the app! (Pro IAP required.) Our users have put their designs on canvas, posters, scarves, T-shirts and textiles. The creative possibilities are endless!

What will Frax inspire in you?
