There are still a few freebies in yesterday’s post on paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free, so you can still snag them if you hurry. We’ve got 10 fresh apps for you to check out on Thursday though, and there are definitely a few on today’s list that you’re not going to want to miss.

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.

Daedalus Touch

Normally $4.99.

“My Favorite iPad Text Editor.” – Charlie Sorrel, WIRED
“A purist and minimalist’s dream.” – Jennifer Allen, 148Apps
“It’s a killer app, and a welcome addition to my writing life.” – Zach LeBar, iPad.AppStorm

Daedalus Touch is the first truly next-gen text editor on iOS. No file lists, no folders, no documents in the classic sense – just paper stacks and an infinite amount of sheets. You navigate by standard gestures, all perfectly mapped and matched to the tasks at hand.

Interacting with digital texts never felt so natural: Flick through pages by swiping left and right, reorder stacks and sheets via drag’n’drop, use tap to open, pinch to close, and select multiple sheets for export with simple taps.

Watch it all at

The basic version fully utilizes iCloud to keep your texts updated across all of your devices. It’s also tightly integrated with Ulysses for OS X, so you can edit all your texts on the desktop. A simple export facility lets you print and send emails from within the app.

For advanced functionality, several in-app purchases are available:

1) Full synchronization via Dropbox, and WebDAV, including the option to import .txt and .md files into Daedalus.

2) File export, creating TXT-, PDF-, RTF- and ePub-files with Markdown conversion. Files can be sent as attachments or opened in other apps installed on your device.

3) Additional color themes and the option to use any font you want.

4) All of the above in one complete package.

Please note that users who purchased Daedalus prior to 1.7 will get the full version at no additional cost. Free lunch.


Create, share and synchronize your writings in a beautiful, inspiring environment. Daedalus Touch completely ditches the technical aspects of current-gen text editors and word processors in favor of a natural, fully realized paper stack metaphor.

– Stacks and sheets instead of folders and files.
– Manual sorting of stacks and sheets (no, really).
– Always-on global search. Modeless match highlighting; result stepper.
– Responsive editor, even for large texts (20.000 words and more).
– Highly configurable extra keyboard row, including Fwd-Del and Tab.
– Character- and word count.
– Built-in support for TextExpander touch.
– Built-in web browser to quickly look up or post stuff on the internet (iPad only)

Ever wished that you could turn your normal day into a rap song?
I’m guessing probably not.
But hey, this is the kind of thing you don’t know that you want in your life until you try it out!

Rapto lets you create music using artificial intelligence & your camera.

Simply point the camera towards any object around you and Rapto will use it’s inbuilt neural network to “understand” the object & create rap music!

*Note – Rapto does not send images to any remote servers to do the image processing. You don’t even need an internet connection actually, so feel free to bring up Rapto next time you want to pass time in an aeroplane!

Lisn – Synced Music Chat

Normally $0.99.

“The joy that comes from listening to music with friends is something that’s been around ever since… well, ever since music. Lisn offers you a way to listen to music with a friend, no matter how far apart you are, and chat about it right in the app.”
— TechCrunch

“You may remember meticulously crafting cassette mix tapes for love interests and close friends. Lisn is an app that wants to bring back the joy of sharing music with others.”
— The Daily Dot

“Sharing is caring. And music is especially fun when you come together to enjoy. With Lisn, it doesn’t matter how far apart two people are.”
— WIRED Magazine

“Who has not shared a handset walkman with a friend to listen to a song together? Lisn lets you do exactly this.”
— ViaEmpresa

Music sharing on mobile sucks. You send a friend a track on iMessage, tell them how awesome it is, and wait for them to listen to it. But they just never do!

With Lisn, you can share music and listen to it together: while chatting about it real-time! Think of it like sharing the AUX cord, but you don’t have to be next to each other.

But what if your friend is busy? Well, then we notify you when they’re checking it out later so that you can jump in and both of you can now listen to it together.

Some of the most fun experiences are from listening to music together: concerts, parties, you name it! Why should it be any different otherwise?

We currently support Spotify Premium and Soundcloud. We’ll be adding Apple Music in a future update so that you can listen with more friends!
