Best Free iPhone Apps

If you’re in the Northeast region, there’s a good chance you’re enjoying a snow day on Wednesday. And what better way to enjoy a snow day than to fill your iPhone and iPad with paid apps that are currently on sale for free? We’ve got eight fresh apps for you to check out today, but they’re only free for a limited time. Download them while you can!

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.

Realistic Chinese Checkers

Normally $4.99.

Realistic Chinese Checkers with unbelievable real crystal balls.

There are 2 play modes: Capture and Free.

Capture mode:
You can play with Computer or up to 6 players. Computer player have very strong AI.

Detail: All sixty game pieces start out in the hexagonal field in the center of the game board. The center position is left unoccupied, so pieces form a symmetric hexagonal pattern. Color is irrelevant in this variant, so players take turns hopping any game piece over any other eligible game piece(s) on the board. The hopped-over pieces are captured (retired from the game, as in American checkers) and collected in the capturing player’s bin.

The game ends when no further jumps are possible. The player with the most captured pieces is the winner.

The board is tightly packed at the start of the game; as more pieces are captured, the board frees up, often allowing multiple captures to take place in a single move.

Free mode:
Just like a Chinese checkers board. No rule, no AI.
You can play anyway you like.

The Playmatic

Normally $1.99.

The Playmatic: It’s baby’s first app, and it’s your best friend!

The Playmatic is for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. It includes four games: Magic Wand, Bubble Bath, Balloons, and Hot Air Balloons. All games are ad free, so there won’t be any accidental clicks by little fingers.

# Extremely simple, by design.

A lot of planning and care went into making The Playmatic as baby-proof as possible. There are no ads, no popups, no settings to configure, and nothing that will require you to step in and help. There’s nothing for your baby to break. Babies figure the app out fast — tap a game on the menu to play it, and return to the menu by giving the device a shake.

# Helps babies learn cause and effect.

The games in The Playmatic are designed around exciting (for babies) cause-and-effect interactions. When your baby touches the screen things happen — magical poofs of color appear, bubbles pop, and sky divers jump out of hot air balloons. Therapists have even used The Playmatic to help teach developmentally challenged toddlers!

# Fun for baby, not annoying for you.

The Playmatic will keep your baby entertained for hours with happy sounds and colorful graphics that are exciting for baby but not annoying for you. It’s a win-win situation. Like some parents who have written us, you may even find that The Playmatic keeps baby entertained long enough to give you a few extra minutes in the shower each morning!

# Frequently Asked Question

To exit a game and return to the menu, just tap and hold for two seconds, and then slide your finger right.

Cove: The musical journal

Normally $0.99.

Create music to help express complex feelings. Cove is a personal musical journal to help you with your emotional and mental health.

• Create different musical moods and create music with over 30 different instruments
• Just tap and swipe. With simple controls there’s no way to do it wrong!
• Build a song using base chords, melody and percussion
• Store your Cove in a personal journal. A private space to write some thoughts about your feelings where you can add notes, images or tags.

We believe Cove has a role to play in improving emotional and mental health by encouraging self-expression.

Cove can be used any time, but may be most useful when you find it difficult to express yourself through other means, such as talking or writing. You can use Cove whenever you feel like it, there is no right or wrong way! You can make music by yourself, or share what you make with others.

“It’s hard to express and understand our emotions sometimes, this app helps out a lot.”
– Taylrbrwr

“Love this app. It’s so easy to use and so easy to create songs that reflect how I feel.”
– Jjsantan

“This app is just great. I’ve just been so anxious lately, over so many different things.”
– AKarst525

“Really enjoyed the ease with which I can capture an emotion I am feeling at the moment.“

“The loops you make and save really can be an emotional outlet.”
– Mashable

“Cove is a journaling app that upends what you’d expect from a journaling app.”

“It’s a brilliant idea that removes the awkwardness and struggles that can come with trying to put difficult emotions into words.”
– It’s Nice That

“For people who struggle with anxiety or just find it hard to even determine their own moods, melodies can prove a useful tool of expression.”
– The Next Web

Cove is currently being tested in the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, and has been created in collaboration with specialists and clinicians. Cove was developed with young people in mind, but adults may find it equally useful to express and capture a mood or emotion.

Cove primarily uses music instead of words to express a feeling or mood, and so it may be helpful in conjunction with talking therapies and counselling. Cove is not a substitute for professional therapy, and not suitable for those experiencing severe distress or suicidal thoughts.
