We’ve had two great days in a row for paid iPhone and iPad apps that go on sale for free for a limited time, and now we’re stretching our streak out to three consecutive days. There are still a few nifty paid iOS apps that are available for free in yesterday’s post if you hurry, but today we have a fresh new list of eight more apps.

Wednesday’s list includes a few that never go free, so you definitely don’t want to take your time downloading these great apps today.

DON’T MISS: 3 stunning iPhone 6 cases that are perfect for people who hate iPhone cases

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.

Have you ever forgotten to accomplish tasks while you’re out in the day, only to regret not doing so when you’re finally back home after a long day?

Fret not, CheckPoint will remind you. We made this app so it could remind you to get things done at the right place, right time!

Unlike other reminder apps, CheckPoint is a location-based reminder so you can get relevant reminders based on your location. For example, a reminder to pick up an extra light bulb on your way home from work from the shop nearby. Or a reminder to try out that new cafe your friend recommended when you’re in the neighbourhood.

CheckPoint location reminders are battery safe, no matter how many reminders you’ve added!

What are some things you can do with CheckPoint? You can add a reminder to:
• Fuel up when you’re near your favourite petrol station
• Water the plants or take the trash out once you get home
• Buy flowers for your loved ones when you’re passing by your favourite florist ;)
• Bookmark a place your friend suggested to visit, so you remember to do so when you’re just around the corner
… and much more, the possibilities are endless!

CheckPoint includes the following features:
• Add an unlimited number of location-based reminders
• Add places with the help of Google and Foursquare search engines
• Add places using addresses, GPS coordinates, your current location or contacts
• Choose from an array of unique notification sounds so you know it’s a CheckPoint alert
• Add time-based reminders
• Get distance and ETA for saved locations
• Navigate your way to saved locations using Maps, Google Maps or Waze
