8 paid iPhone apps you can download for free on September 10th

Best Free iPhone Apps

If you thought yesterday’s roundup of the best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was good, well, you’d be correct. There were some very cool apps in there, and some of them are still on sale for free so you can go back and download them if you missed it. Once you’re done with that, you’ll find eight new freebies right here in Tuesday’s roundup, but they’re only free for a limited time so get 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 or use that feed to create an email alert so you’ll be notified as soon as these posts are published and avoid missing the sales we cover.

Researcher PRO for Note Taking

Normally $2.99.

ResearcherPRO has been designed to help researchers and anyone who is interested in reading papers, in facilitating many operations such as discover them, organize them, sync them and note taking on them.

Discover, search and import a paper is a normal operation that we do constantly. That’s why the app allows you to do that very easily. The Discover feature has integration with the major search engines (pubmed, scholar, arxiv, …) to help you find what you need, import it and start working on it right away.

We are not interested in hosting your papers and ask you to pay for it such as other services because we are aware that most of us already have that collection either locally on our computer or hosted on a cloud file provider such as Google Drive, Dropbox, One Drive and others. What we do is allow you to “link/import” a paper from the Cloud Integration of the app and allows you to sync after editing (ex: note taking) a paper automatically.

Our Mendeley integration (account is not required) is our cherry on the cake because every paper stored in the app will show details that you need even without opening it, including a detail view with much more (references, abstract, …).

Last but not least: Apple Pencil support. Apple gave us this instrument that we can use to take notes on our papers and here we are, to support that as well.

To summarize:
– Ability to organize papers locally in folders
– Tags support
– Nice detail of any paper by title, abstract, journal and so on
– Integration with the major cloud providers (Dropbox, Google Drive, …) with sync support (auto-upload after note taking)
– Apple Pencil support for note taking
– Mendeley integration (account not required)
– Discoverer: search new papers on PubMed, Arvix and many more! Import them straight away in the app

Night Terrors: Bloody Mary

Normally $1.99.

The next horrifying chapter of Night Terrors has arrived, the critically acclaimed augmented reality experience which has charted in the top ten iOS apps across 33 countries.

But don’t trust us….trust those who survived:

“It will make you afraid of your own home” – Bloody Disgusting
“Crazy ambitious and insanely frightening” – iO9
“The future of fear and nope” – Polygon

From film director, producer, and screenwriter Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity), comes the next generation of augmented reality survival horror. Night Terrors: Bloody Mary transforms your environment into a heart-pumping supernatural experience that will leave you questioning your sanity.

The all-new “Night Terrors” experience resurrects the urban legend of Bloody Mary and the lethal fate she inflicts on those foolish enough to summon Her. This sinister tale has been spread by word of mouth for hundreds of years as a warning.

Are you brave enough to utter the name and survive her reign of terror?

Will you answer the door?
Will you check upstairs?
Will – you – help – others – SURVIVE?

Just remember…Legends Never Die!


1.) Night Terrors is played indoors, at night, with your lights off, and headphones on. Launch the app and say her name three times…Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.

Survival Tips:

– Keep moving. Entities are less likely to sense your presence if you consistently change locations.

– With each loud noise, your device’s glass will break. If the glass fully shatters, you become vulnerable and She will seize your soul. You scream….YOU DIE!

– Once you say Her name, you have 3 Days. After sunset on the third day, Her mirror portal closes and resets.

2.) Night Terrors pioneers state-of-the-art technology – the phone’s camera, LED light, and other system features create personalized scares by using unique AR captured content paired with 360 degree audio in order to truly immerse players in an experience unlike anything else.

3.) Compatible with iPhone 8 and later running iOS 10 or later.

4.) Not recommended with iPad devices without an LED light source.

5.) Not recommended with older devices.

6.) Users understand and assume all risks of injury or property damage while playing.
