Best Free iPhone Apps

Yesterday’s roundup of the best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was one of the best ones we’ve had in a while, and a few of the apps in there are actually still free downloads if you hurry. Thursday brings with it a fresh new batch of freebies though, and we’ve rounded up the seven best ones in this post.

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.

Xmart Calculator Pro

Normally $5.99.

Let’s look at some simple questions:

Question 1:
James can make $200 per day, what would be his annual income ( He works 5 days a week, 48 weeks per year) ?

This is easy, just enter an expression as this in Xmart Calculator: 200 x 5 x 48

Question 2:
How many times of tapping a button to calculate his annual income?

8 times on a normal calculator, 7 times on Xmart Calculator (you don’t need to tap the ‘=’ button).

Question 3:
What if his day rate is $320, $400, $500…?

Well, very similar:
320 x 5 x 48;
400 x 5 x 48;
500 x 5 x 48…

What’s the problem? With a normal calculator, we have to enter the same buttons ‘x 5 x 48’ very time when the only value changes is just the day rate.

Is there any way to just enter the day rate and the result will update automatically?

With Xmart Calculator, YES! You can define a Algebra function like this:

“IncomeByDay(X) = X x 5 x 48”

Then you can just select the function and enter the value for ‘X’ and the result will update straight away!

To get James annual income, you just need to tap buttons 4 times.

End of questions
