7 awesome paid iPhone and iPad apps that are free for a limited time

Best Free iPhone Apps

Another day, another batch of awesome paid iPhone and iPad apps that you can download right now for free. Yesterday’s post had eight nifty iOS apps that were on sale for free, and you can still grab a few of them without paying if you move quickly. Today, however, we have another seven apps including a very cool collaborative drawing app that lets you see what your partner is drawing remotely in real-time as they work, and a panoramic photo and video app that seems like magic.

DON’T MISS: The most beautiful iPhone 6 cases you’ve never heard of

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.

Pocket Reader

Normally $2.99.

Pocket Reader turns any online article/blog into an audiobook-like experience. Easily navigate forward and backwards as if it was an audiobook.

This app was made to solve a problem I had. I used to sit in traffic for two hours each day, so to make use of my time I would read my Pocket articles while driving. Since reading and driving is a bit dangerous, I decided to build this app so that my phone could read to me instead.

Enjoy, I hope you like it!

Pocket Reader is fully integrated with the Pocket system. This means that all updates and changes you make from your Pocket App or this Pocket Reader App will be in sync.

Please email me if you encounter any bugs! I take pride in what I build and want to make sure anyone using my app has a fantastic experience!

Letters and Dots

Normally $1.99.

Letters and Dots is an addictive (and colorful) puzzle word game.

The goal is pretty simple; connect letters to create the longest words that you can and earn as many points as possible in 20 turns. New letters fall to replace the ones you used. More points are awarded for longer words and you get a bonus if all of the letters used were the same color.

As you find new words, they’re added to your wordlist so you can keep track of every word you’ve ever found. It might take a while to find every word in the dictionary, but we believe you can do it!

Feeling strategic? Or tired? You can also just connect dots of the same color. This is a great way to help set up the board for a really long word. It’s also the best way to rest your brain in between serious point expeditions.

Letters and Dots was created with a lot of love, so we hope that you have a ton of fun playing it. If you do, tell all your friends (and us)!

Finally, we heart feedback. Do you love the game? Is there a word that’s missing in the dictionary? (Sorry!) Do you just want to say hello? We’d love to hear from you, so reach out to us on Twitter: @lettersanddots

That’s all we got. Have fun and may that elusive seven letter, same color word be in your near future!
