8 paid iPhone apps you can download for free today

Best Free iPhone Apps

We’re kicking off the new week with a great rounding of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for a limited time. We went through more than 100 different apps on sale on Monday to come up with eight that represent the cream of the crop. They’re all free to download right now, but these sales could end anytime so check them out while they’re still free.

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 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. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

Alloy – launcher and automator

Normally $4.99.

Alloy is all about automating your day-to-day activities. Whether you just need to launch an app or automate many repetitive and complex tasks – Alloy makes it simple and handy. So if you need to post today’s photos with added watermark to Facebook, send canned SMS to someone, save and track your parking place and time, etc. – just create corresponding actions and use them again and again.

Alloy combines the best of two worlds:
● Advanced launcher with dynamic favorites based on your habits, location and usage statistics.
● Sophisticated workflow engine, which allows to build actions utilizing REST Web Services, system and Cloud services, installed apps etc.

Sample actions would be:
● post today’s photos with added watermark to Facebook
● calculate tip
● send group SMS and email
● send canned SMS to someone
● save parking place and setup a reminder to leave
● find pizza on Yelp
● upload new photos to Dropbox and send links of them by email
● convert EUR to USD using Convertible
● navigate to certain location using Google Map
● etc.

You can either use ready-to-use actions from built-in Action Directory or you can build your own actions using simple yet powerful action editor. You can specify install and launch tasks, use variables and macro, use app icons and contact photos, specify which data is acceptable for action etc

Alloy eliminates the need to browse through several pages full of apps to find an app or action to launch – dynamic Favorites would provide you just right set of needed apps and actions based on your habits, location and usage statistics.

To show Favorites tap the Star button and tap desired action. Or long press the Star button and swipe to desired action. You can pin some actions to Favorites and fine-tune how Favorites are calculated.

You can even use Alloy Favorites right from any other apps by employing Alloy Widget. Just pull-down the Notification Center, navigate to Alloy Widget and tap to a desired action to launch it.

Any Alloy action can be launched from other apps by opening corresponding links e.g alloy://smsKate. To get a link to an action: turn ON the Edit mode, tap the Share button on the action and choose the “Copy Link”. Two-way communication with other apps is also supported via x-callback-url.

Take some time to teach Alloy about your needs and let Alloy greatly improve your life by automating your day-to-day activities.

Wallpaper Generatоr

Normally $0.99.

So, for years I couldn’t find a steady supply of wallpapers for my devices. Not really a fan of anything that includes people in it… Gets old pretty fast. As with any other wallpaper, really.

This app generates beautiful, colorful images, which can also get boring after some time, but there’s always more! And modern digitals screens do make it seem like they need to show off their capabilities of showing eye-popping colors!

I, myself needed this app, so it seems like a no-brainer that other people might need it too.
