8 paid iPhone apps that are free downloads right now

Best Free iPhone Apps

What a week it’s been, Apple fans. You got to feast your eyes on three new iPhones, a new Apple Watch, a new Apple TV, and even some nifty accessories set to be released later this year. Of course, you also got your fill of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. We’ve got one more roundup for you before the week is over, so be sure to grab all these apps soon 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.

Taskcode is a masterfully created task manager with a unique data input system. Unlike other reminder apps, where the user constantly have to tap from one option to another, Taskcode allows the easiest way of specifying all attributes of a reminder like due date, time, subtasks, title, repeat function etc. simply by typing. This allows for a much quicker and efficient way of inputting data.

There are 6 simple codes, a user can use in combination to set reminders:

“ ” for title
# for due date
@ for due time
$ for repeat functionality
% for subtasks
* for color of a tile

Preview 1:
“Office Task” Meeting with John & Julie #tomorrow @noon
When you type the above and tap save, Taskcode automatically accepts due date as the next day and time as 12:00 pm, with title as ‘Office task’ – because # is used to specify due date, @ is used to specify due time and any character inside double quotes become the title of the tile.

Preview 2:
“Buy from Supermarket” %Milk %Sugar %Apples #010716 @0300p
Here the task will be titled as ‘Buy from Supermarket’ with subtask items listed as Milk, Sugar and Apples with the due date as 1st of July 2016 (010716), and time as 3:00 Pm (0300p).

Preview 3:
“Take Medicine” $daily @0800a
This will remind you to take your medicine every day ($daily) in the morning at 08:00 am (@morning can also be used).

Any text without these codes will be saved as a simple note.
Detailed tutorial and walkthrough tutorial are available inside the app.

Added Features include:
•Auto suggestion for codes
•Code & Color shortcut drawer
•Dark theme & White theme
•Snooze control
•Multi-select for batch actions
•Archiving of tiles and more

Master these 6 simple codes and discover how logical and faster it is to input data.There are hundreds of apps available to enter data manually but you deserve something better.

Are you one of those who cannot stop typing and texting while walking? Nowadays, it’s kind of impossible to find someone who don’t use their phones on the streets and you’ll find everyone is texting and checking different social networks on the go. The experiments show that while you walk and text, your main focus will be on texting and you won’t notice the obstacles and pedestrians ahead of you. So, how about a utility application to assist you focus on your texting while walking and see your way through the camera of your phone. It’s amazing, isn’t it?

Clearvue uses a unique idea and combines your text messaging services with your front camera, so you get to easily view the things in front and below of you and text as much as you want at the same time.

In other words, Clearvue functions as your third eye and lets you simultaneously look at the streets and things in front and below of you, and type a text message to send to anyone in your contact list. The process is super quick and once you have selected the contact you want to send a message to, finish typing your message (of course while viewing the street via the camera) and hit the send button to be redirected to your SMS app to send the message and you are all done.

Super Easy to Setup and Use

Clearvue comes with a clean and neat design and the interface is so user-friendly that doesn’t take a genius to figure out the whole idea after trying the app for a couple of times. To get started, you just need to follow a few simple steps and grant the required permissions to the app.

In the app, you first need to approve the access to camera and contacts, and before typing your message, you need to select the contact you would like to send a message to.

In the iMessage app, you need to activate Clearvue as a custom keyboard by opening the SMS app, tapping on the iMessage Store button and selecting the Clearvue app.

Note that, due to the Apple’s security setting, you must open the SMS app to send message; however, the experience is super quick and after a few times you’ll completely get used to sending messages using Clearvue.

Clearvue Main Features at a Glance:
• Works with SMS
•Clean and neat design with fresh and intuitive interface
•Use your camera to see what is in front of you
•Supper battery efficient
