Best Free iPhone Apps

We have a great roundup of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for you to check out on Monday. It includes eight different apps and games that span a wide range of genres, but they all have one thing in common: They’re only free for a limited time, so be sure to 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 app 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. Some apps may have additional in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

Text Me That

Normally $1.99.

Text Me That or TMT was developed for one simple purpose, to help you get things done.

We understand that nowadays there are more and more people, apps and things trying to get your attention. Especially through your phone; I mean most of us never leave the house without it. The downside to being so popular is that often times the important things, like reminders for your parking spot or to buy toothpaste, are wedged between Instagram notifying you for the 10th time that your mom posted a photo or that Starbucks has a great deal on your favorite drink.

How are we supposed to get things done when there is just so much digital noise?

We had to find the answer, so we went to the drawing board! We quickly realized that though there are great “to-do” apps out there in the world. We still find ourselves asking our friends to text us to remind us of something. Or how we like to remember it, “Hey, do you mind texting me that…”. When our friends were involved in the process it was almost like we had a personal assistant there to help us get things done. However, there is one small pitfall we found with that solution. We can’t always be relying on our friends to text us exactly when we need to be reminded of something.

There had to be a better way.

From that simple realization, that the statement “Hey, do you mind texting me that…” needed to be perfected, so TMT was born.

You can count on TMT to help you get things done. Here are some of the features we built for TMT and why:

– One step login and account creation
• All you have to do is press send, we do all the heavy lifting. No more remembering passwords, we authenticate you automatically.

-Two-step reminder creation.
• Why make this more complicated than it needs to be. Simple click the TMT Orange + button, write your message, select a time and date for your reminder and press done. Only two things you need to input, reminder message & date/time.

Now, we understand that there are a select few who need more than just one reminder. That is why we developed a few key features for you and we call it TMT PRO. (30 Day Free Trial)

– Send a Friend Reminders
• Create a reminder and send it to your friend with just one tap.

– Recurring Reminders
• Is there something that you need to be reminded of frequently? TMT can remind you at the same time every day, week, bi-weekly, or monthly. It is up to you!

– Add Notes to your reminders
• Sometimes we need a little bit more information with our reminders. Notes give you the ability to add just that, notes.

– Resend Reminders
• TMT was built to help you get things done, recreate a new reminder with this feature. Just click the reminder you already sent and remind yourself again with just swipe and a tap.

Teletext Stickies

Normally $3.99.

These 40 animated stickers are a lovely tribute to the dying medium teletext.

Teletext influenced an entire generation—it was a revolutionary technology that displayed interactive texts and graphics on your home television, long before the internet was available.

Beside black and white, Teletext can display six colors (3-bit RGB). The low resolution led to the characteristic pixel style. If reception was poor, it often came to »glitches« (display errors). Every TV-station could transmit 899 Videotext-pages but not every page could be broadcasted at the same time. Also, memory in TVs was expensive. That’s why you often had to wait for the required page to display.
