6 paid iPhone apps on sale for free on May 27th

Best Free iPhone Apps

We dug through dozens and dozens of discounted iOS apps on Monday morning to come up with the best of the bunch. At the end of our search, we were left with six premium iPhone and iPad apps that are all on sale for free for a limited time. You’ll find them all listed below, so be sure to scroll through them before these deals are done. One in particular is a $3 app that can go a long way to stop spam calls, so definitely grab it while it’s 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 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.

“Sticking with this type of task delegation is a great decision.”

Do.List is a task management app for people. I’m not building for an enterprise corporate client. I design for normal lives.

The design is simple enough that it’s intuitive. Use the tutorial to get started or skip it and explore!

When you need to give a task a due date, add it to the “Reminders” list and you’ll get a reminder!

When you open Do.List, the home screen is “Today”. That helps keeps the focus on what’s important.

“Do.List is a minimalist app empowering focus.”

Choose the notifications that work for you:
○ Get daily quotes
○ Productivity tips
○ “Sunday Night Prep” reminders to prepare for the week
○ “Monday Morning Pep” motivation

“Personally, I love this app… I encourage anyone who needs to organize their life and loves doing it with lists to use this.”

Long lists of errands or tasks become overwhelming. If your Today list goes over 5 tasks you’ll be encouraged to shorten it!

All data saved locally on phone, plus just tap “Backup” in Settings to backup to iCloud.

Do you have trouble remembering names, or what you last talked about, or to message someone back when you said you would. It’s easy to forget all the little things when life gets busy.
