Best Free iPhone Apps

We’ve shown you plenty of great paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free this week, and now it’s time for our biggest list yet. Thursday’s post includes 10 great paid iOS apps that are all on sale for free, but only for a limited time. There are also still a few paid apps on sale for free in yesterday’s post, so be sure to hurry up and check those out as well.

DON’T MISS: The worst things reviewers are saying about the Apple Watch

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.

In a flash, you can sort the data by any field, and finally, if you share the device with your colleagues or family, or travel around the world and want to keep your personal information away from prying eyes, you can set a 4-digit PIN to prevent unauthorised access.

Data loss is a thing of the past with iDatabase and its built-in backup function. You can store and retrieve all your important databases in your Dropbox space – just a tap. Have you ever dreamed of keeping the databases you have on your iPhone synchronized with those you have on your Mac? If you also possess the iDatabase for Mac, you can do it with the Wi-Fi Sync function. Another great feature is the ability to share your work with friends and colleagues via email, in several formats. When you receive the file, you can import data immediately into the iDatabase iPhone or Mac!

Not enough space on your iPhone to store all your favorite movies, tv shows and music? No problem! Just keep everything on your computer and stream it any time you want right to your iOS device. Amazing!

iBox enables any iOS device to connect wirelessly and directly to any Windows computer that is turned on, connected to the Internet and has the iBox Control Panel running.

Currently, iBox supports viewing and opening virtually any file on your computer and external or network hard drive, including but not limited to documents, charts, presentations, pictures and all video media. This version also supports media streaming.

iBox is $0.99 with unlimited updates. There is no monthly service fee component or additional fees in order to use iBox.

Currently iBox supports any computer using Windows. In future releases, iBox will also support Mac. In future releases, iBox will support online catastrophic storage/backup. iBox supports connection to one computer at a time. In future releases, iBox will support simultaneous connections to multiple computers.

Although cloud hosting continues to be on the rise, many people wish that they didn’t have to store their personal, private or business data on “someone else’s” server in order to access it. Syncing local data with cloud services also presents various logistical issues. When users change local data, cloud syncing doesn’t always happen instantly, causing duplication of efforts, confusion and sometimes even loss of data. Cloud service companies give away a limited amount of free space and then up-sell their customers to pay hefty monthly fees in order to use the hard drive space the customer truly needs.

iBox enables a direct connection to your computer – without a third party intermediary. No syncing issues – ever. No monthly storage fees for “additional space” – ever. The only limitation to hard drive space is the actual size of your hard drive.
