With just one day to go before Apple takes the wraps off its hot new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, you had better start filling up those iPhones now with all the paid iOS apps on sale for free that you can. Remember, you’ll have twice the storage capacity when you upgrade — either 32GB, 128GB or 256GB — and that’s a whole lot of space to fill…

MUST READ: All the reasons Apple’s ‘boring’ new iPhone 7 will be its most exciting iPhone ever

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their 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, you will be charged.

Zombies & Ghosts City TD Defense


$2.99 in-app purchase to remove ads is now free.

“Ghost Defense TD” is for those fans who value the strategical beauty of quality defense games. It is a refreshing take on the genre, as it features a human hero theme and rich diversity of levels and troops.

In fact, the game will have you playing with delight due to:

Altogether 24 levels, most of which are brilliantly unique
Various types of enemies coming by land, sea or air
6 upgradable towers to spice up your tactics
3 heroes, each of whom will serve as your distinguished captain
Options for playing the game in offline mode

But let’s first look at the turmoil that has been unleashed. It seems that the ghosts have risen once again, eager to take over the land and turn it into a dark world full of injustice and warfare. They have prepared an intimidating number of evil soldiers and threaten the peaceful status quo.

Such behavior cannot be tolerated by the heroes of our time. You have been called upon to pick your champion, gather your troops and organize a strategic tower defense. Boys, girls, women, men ñ old and young, everyone relies on you and your defenders to restore the justice and peace that have been lost.

“Ghost Defense TD” will amaze you with its 24 different levels that showcase a completely new environment to lead your battles on. Test your strategy in different scenarios and become a generator of warfare ideas, ready to lead the next epic battle.

Tanks, troops and of course, guns, seem like something static. They are absolutely not here, as the game offers you a catalogue of land, sea and air enemies. You will be constantly on the lookout, diving in yet another demanding battlefield! The rules of air combat are very different than defending against oncoming fleets, right?

What matters most, however, is the arsenal of towers you have at your disposal. Pick your strategy by utilizing the accuracy of sniper towers, the iron precision of machine gun towers, or the brute force of rocket towers. Bring the winter to the combat with ice towers that will have your enemies freeze, or rely on flame or electric towers. The choice to define your way to defeat the bad guys is solely yours!

Who will be the mighty captain ready to enter a world of steel, war and dignity? You are free to give your own answer to that by picking one of the three unlockable heroes. Each of them a fantastic option, they will suit your preferences as for who is the best champion to lead your defenders to victory.

You can enjoy the game either in online or offline mode. There are built-in scoreboards that allow you to measure your intelligent tactics and combat results with other gamers from all over the world. After all, why not share your success and cunning way of leading war with others? It is a part of the game!

Do you hear gunfire? Does the ground tremble under the steps of oncoming ghosts and monsters? That’s your call to battle. Enter it and reap your glorious victory!

With iPhocus you will have access to the manual controls for shooting your videos


● EXCLUSIVE AirFocus: With iPhocus installed in two devices you can control the parameters via Wi-Fi.
No more work only done by yourself. One does the framing and the other precisely controls the focus or other parameters, just like in a real movie shooting. Remote controls on your hands.

● Focus: Now is possible to focus (and blur) how you would like.

Use the rack focus to change the foreground in focus. Also you can enclose the distance to get the initial and final focal points of the shot saved with the Focus Range.

● Exposure: Modify the exposure value, balancing the light that your iPhone measures to see details in the darkness and in the bright.

● Frames per Second (FPS): Choose the frame rate of your video up to 240fps in an iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus Get ready for slo-mo!

● ISO: is the measure of light-sensitivity.

The lower the ISO number, the less sensitive it is to the light, while a higher ISO number increases the sensitivity of your camera. Your results will be sharper images with less noise depending how you want to adjust it.

● White balance: Set the right color of your images.

No more orange tones. Use the presets settings, the automatic calibration or make your own white balances. iPhocus will show you the value of temperature and dye to show you in real time the image changes .

● Auto/Manual: With the press of a button (or the “turn down volume button”) you can give iPhocus full control over the parameters and tap any place of the screen to have the right focus, exposure and white balance.

“A professional tool in my hands! Mandatory purchase for those who use their iPhone on video projects” – Brokentugs

iPhocus is the video camera with manual controls you will always carry in your pocket
It has a simple but highly efficient interface, that won’t distract you from what is most important: the image.

This is the first video app that allows you to take the iPhone in horizontal position and use your thumb fingers to control the focus and exposure. IPhocus has made it easier tan ever.

“The video camera designed for professionals to professionals” – Samuel Smith

“Mobile filmmakers are often frustrated by the fact that depth of field is all too often lost on their smartphones. There are many times when a good rack focus would make a shot more dramatic, if not artsy. However, while the state of the art with smartphone video is improving rather dramatically with even ultra high definition resolution, the ability to ramp through depth of field has been elusive. But apps like iPhocus promise to change all that. And you know what? It actually works.” – James DeRuvo
iPhocus was developed by a team of filmmakers, engineers and developers from US, Spain and Colombia who while looking for expensive video cameras realized they had the key in their pockets.

Don’t miss any moment, use your iPhocus app and control the focus on your images and videos.

OrasisHD is a 1-shot HDR app. It takes a SINGLE image and automatically transforms it to a well-exposed, natural-looking photo, simulating the way your eyes perceived the scenery at the moment the photo was taken.

Based on a decade of academic research, OrasisHD uses a proprietary image processing algorithm: dark and bright image regions are enhanced, revealing information that was not visible previously. More importantly though, well-exposed areas are not affected! To the best of our knowledge this is a unique feature not offered by any other app in the industry.

If you are not sure that OrasisHD is good for you, please try our FREE version (Orasis), before purchasing OrasisHD. Our customer base consists of satisfied users, and we do not intend to change this any time soon :)
