4 awesome paid iPhone apps you can download for free right now

Best Free iPhone Apps Download

As part of our never ending series of features designed to help you find terrific free iOS apps, we’ve found four more apps that were previously paid that have now gone free for an undetermined amount of time. Taken together, these four apps used to cost $10 total but you can now get every single one of them for free if you act right this minute.

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.

With that disclosure out of the way, here are four paid iPhone apps that have just gone free on Wednesday.



Notifyr is a terrific app that will let you pair your iPhone with your Mac to give you your iPhone notifications right on your laptop or desktop computer.

Notifyr shows all your incoming notifications from your iPhone on your Mac.

With Notifyr, you’ll never miss a notification again: you can keep your phone in your pocket and still know what’s going on. You can read your incoming WhatsApp messages, see who’s following you on Instagram or read any of the other kind of notifications from any app on your iPhone. It’s also possible to mute notifications from any app you like.

Once paired, you’ll never need to open the app on your phone again. When the connection gets lost, Notifyr will automatically reconnect to your phone once it becomes available again.

Because Notifyr uses Bluetooth Low Energy, you can keep using Notifyr all day without it draining your battery.

Notifyr, which normally costs $3,99, will be “free every other day for 7 days starting the 6th of August,” its developers say.



As its name suggests, WriteRight is an app whose sole goal is to help you be a better writer on your iOS device by giving you a ton of suggested synonyms and antonyms so that you don’t use the same boring old words again and again. This could be particularly helpful for BGR writers so that we don’t use the words “awesome,” “amazing,” “gorgeous” and “killer” too much in our sensational headlines.

WriteRight is the best writing app with countless synonyms, antonyms and phraseology for iPad, iPad Mini and iPhone, built upon Markdown. It makes smart replacements preserving conjugation, gender and number.


WriteRight offers you synonyms or antonyms together with phraseology.

WriteRight recognizes conjugated words, either feminine or plural, or in different tenses and persons in the case of verbs.

WriteRight replaces words with their conjugated synonym counterparts, matching gender and number, person and tense.

WriteRight is capable of identifying and replacing not only single words, but multiple-word expressions, phrasal verbs, adjectivals, adverbials and prepositional phrases, even in their conjugated forms.

WriteRight normally costs $2.99 but you can now get it for free for an undetermined amount of time.

Timeless: The Multiple Countdown Timer & Stopwatch with Style

Simply put, Timeless wants to be the only stopwatch app you’ll ever need, as it will allow you to set up multiple countdown timers for different events and activities.

Timeless is a countdown timer and stopwatch application that combines a very simple and fast interface with powerful features like multiple timers, labeling, gesture based controls, Focus mode and colour themes.

A list of features that you’ll love:

* UP TO 60% FASTER (NEW) We’ve completely re-engineered core parts of the app to make it even faster to load and handle your timers.

* UPDATED FRESH NEW DESIGN (NEW) Timeless has been redesigned to look and feel even better!

* COUNTDOWN SECONDS (NEW) You can now set seconds for your timers

* FAST & EASY THEME PICKER (NEW) Use a different colour theme for each timer

* STOPWATCH & COUNTDOWN TIMER Timeless works both as stopwatch and a countdown timer!

* MULTIPLE TIMERS Timeless lets you run up to ten timers simultaneously. Just swipe left to add a new one!

* LABELS ON TIMERS You can add a label on each timer so that you know which timer is up.

* PRESET TIMER DURATIONS Timeless saves the timers you setup so that you can create presets for quick access.

* INTUITIVE GESTURE CONTROLS Timeless allows you to use simple gestures as shortcuts to simple tasks like:
– Start/stop each timer by double tapping on the screen
– Swipe left to add a new timer

* MULTIPLE TIMERS VIEW Rotate clockwise for an overview of all your timers. Start or stop each one you like in a single tap or change their order.

* SINGLE TIMER VIEW (“Focus Mode”) Rotate counter-clockwise to view a large version of the running timer. This mode prevents the phone from locking so that you can easily check the timer’s progress.

* NOTIFICATION CENTER INTEGRATION Never miss a notification. Timeless runs in the background and when a timer expires, it notifies you through the iOS notification center.

* RUNNING TIMERS BADGE A little badge on the app’s icon lets you know how many timers are currently running.

* NOTIFICATIONS SOUNDS Choose from a list of carefully selected audio notifications. More coming soon!

Countless normally costs $0.99 but is now free for an undetermined amount of time.


And finally, we have Cavesweeper, a fun little game that mixes the classic formula of Minesweeper with the thrills of playing a dungeon-crawling RPG. The setup is very familiar but instead of watching out for mines as you click on tiles, you’re watching out for scary monsters that are lurking in the depths.

Reveal the soul gems of monsters in this addictive puzzle game inspired by Minesweeper, NetHack, and Diablo. Fight your way through the deadly cavern, defeating enemies, finding loot, and meeting crazy characters who will assist you on your quest. When you play Cavesweeper, no two games will ever be the same!

Compete on 6 Game Center leaderboards and conquer 40 achievements in this value-jammed game. Cavesweeper features NO in-app purchase and NO advertisements.

Cavesweeper normally costs $1.99 but is now free for an undetermined amount of time.
