Best Free iPhone Apps

You want paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free? We’ll give you paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. Wednesday’s list included eight solid apps that included a little something for everyone, and there are still a few freebies in there if you hurry. Today, of course, we have a fresh list for you. This one includes seven paid iOS apps that are normally all paid downloads, but right now you won’t pay a cent.

DON’T MISS: Does iOS have a bloatware problem?

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.

Easily add more time to an alarm by using Start’s custom snooze duration.

• Activate an alarm or timer by flicking up on the rings and watch Start countdown the time.
• Wake up to your music by locking your device while Start is open.
• Switch between Alarm and Timer mode by tapping the center of the rings.
• Swipe down for stopwatch mode.

Zen Lists

Normally $1.99.

A List is a powerful thing. It can be a roadmap to your future, helping you get from A to B. It is also an effective way to store information in a format our brains can easily understand and quickly recall. Some of mankind’s greatest undertakings started out with just a simple list.

Zen Lists is designed to be simple yet powerful. The app is a quick and easy way to make lists of goals, tasks, inventories and more. We made Zen Lists because we needed a way to focus on the things we wanted without getting lost in the details: An app where content comes first. Use it to create lists, which can be easily exported or shared with others. It’s as easy as that.

We hope you like the app. And if you do, be sure to check out some of the other great Zen apps we’ve made.

Want to be more productive, and have more fun doing your work?

Ever find that distractions, interruptions, and daydreaming make it hard to stay 100% focused on one task at a time – from start to finish?

As a person who experiences these problems at work, I created SPRINTS to help me focus, and I use it every day. In fact, SPRINTS was used to accelerate its own development.

SPRINTS is a one-of-a-kind productivity tool that uses a countdown timer and spoken voice reminders to keep you focused on the task at hand.

SPRINTS is for you, if:

* You would enjoy making a game of getting more done in less time.=
* You find that social media, emails, and interruptions distract you and reduce your efficiency.
* You often fall into the trap of “multitasking” – jumping from task to task without finishing each first.
* You like tools and productivity hacks that boost your effectiveness.


How to use SPRINTS

1. Plug in headphones, and play music that gets you in the zone. Baroque and classical music have been shown to improve focus.
2. Choose a task that would normally take you 5-30 minutes. (Break larger projects into smaller 5-30 minute tasks).
3. Set a clear objective and an even more-aggressive time limit. Could there be a way to finish this 20-minute task in 10 minutes? Strategize on paper or device (I use Evernote) and think through the steps.
4. Start your Sprint! SPRINTS will remind you about the time remaining.
5. Use the Daily High Scores for motivation. Successful Sprints award more points. Can you beat yesterday’s score?


SPRINTS Features

* Name your Sprint objective, and set the timer.
* Audio notifications remind you how much time is left, even when the SPRINTS App is closed.
* A Scoring system rewards you for successful Sprints, and provides motivation.
* SPRINTS saves your scores and results so that you can review them later.
