10 awesome paid iPhone apps that are free right now ($23 value!)

Best Free iPhone Apps

This has been a terrific week for paid iPhone and iPad apps that were made available for free for a limited time, and some apps in our last post can still be downloaded for free if you move quickly. We’re finishing the week even stronger though, with 10 paid iOS apps worth a combined $23 that can all be downloaded for free right now. As always, be sure to act fast if you see anything you like because these sales could end at any time.

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 are free at the time this post is published. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Simple name, simple lists app.

Simple, elegant, sophisticated…Q (kyoo): the definitive task manager for iPhone and iPod touch combining a beautiful, clean, uncluttered design with feature-rich functionality. You will never need another reminder, to do list, or shopping list app again!

Q (kyoo) was created out of frustration with the hundreds of to do list apps on the App Store that are either (1) beautiful but superficially simple, (2) have terrible user interfaces, or (3) are overly complex with far too many settings and seldom-used features. Q (kyoo) – based on the phonetic spelling of queue (an ordered list of tasks waiting to be performed) and cue (a reminder to do something) – combines unparalleled simplicity with uncompromising functionality.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”…Leonardo da Vinci

Unparalleled simplicity:
•No ugly toolbars or buttons wasting precious screen real estate
•No dizzying array of text entry and details screens
•No user account or login required
•Simple, one-handed gesture-based interface for use “on the go”:
-Tap on group or task to expand/collapse to view/hide details
-Tap and hold on expanded group or task to edit title
-Tap and hold on collapsed group or task to drag and re-order
-Swipe right on task to mark done
-Swipe right on group to remove completed tasks
-Swipe left on group or task to delete
-Swipe right from the screen edge to reveal settings

Uncompromising functionality:
•Add subgroups and subtasks to tasks…great for shopping lists
•Recurring tasks with finite and infinite end date
•Reminders based on relative or absolute date and time

Q is on sale from its usual $1.99 price tag.
