Best Free iPhone Apps

Welcome to the biggest list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free we’ve had in quite some time, featuring 11 premium iOS apps that are all on sale for free right now. We’ve got a great array today and there’s sure to be something for everyone. Those looking for even more freebies will find a few sales that haven’t yet expired in yesterday’s post.

MUST SEE: Pyro mini is a new $150 gadget that lets you shoot fireballs from your hands like a superhero

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.

Life Schedule

Normally $3.99.

Life Schedule is a powerful, quick, and simple application that brings you the greatest features to your life. Here, your time will be controlled by yourself from just few typing and clicking. Create your personal event everyday, manage your time spending on and starting from now to become a time owner.

The reason to build this app is to help user to manage the time. We know that we do a lot of things everyday. Sometimes even we forget to eat food, sleep and relax. How to make sure we spend the time in right way? Okay, that’s the purpose I try to do for.

This app is starting from an idea to trace the time that we have spent everyday for every event / activity. And we try to category the events, count the spent time at the end. So we can find out where our time goes to. Okay, another question comes, is that useful? Yes, I think when you totally know where your time spend, you could find a way to change your life. Maybe starting from working less than 10 hours, so you could give more time on something you are really interested.

And everyday, we can see the history of time spending on, you will learn how to make your life balance with different events. For example, per day 8 hours work, 2 hours eat, 1 hour gym …

You will find your life changes better and better, so I hope this idea works and we could enjoy to use the app.

By the way, it may exist few bugs. As an developer (I am not God) I hope you could send any feedback, and let me know how to improve it.

Thanks for reading!

Wall Race

Normally $0.99.

For all of you speed demons, race car lovers, and go-kart fans, this brand new iOS-exclusive racing game is a must-play!

This high speed racing game features a gravity defying experience as you race across ceilings and walls at speeds of up to 600 km/h. Perform dynamic, high-speed aerial stunts in an intense driving experience powered by a brand-new physics engine that is the first of its kind in an iOS game. You won’t find this kind of gameplay anywhere else.

Get a thrill as you race around the track against other cars and try to take the lead in this fast-paced game. Don’t let gravity limit you – let out your inner speed demon and get your car careening along the walls and ceilings of the track. Offering different speeds and colors, all three of the double-sided vehicles have extra-large wheels which allow them to withstand crashing and being flipped over, and resume racing with minimal delay. On these futuristic-looking tracks, there is no right-side-up.

In order to come in first place, speed alone won’t get you there – you’ll also need some weapons to hinder your opponents so that you can take the lead.

Choose from the four weapons in your arsenal:
– a shield
– a speed boost
– a time freeze (which temporarily slows down all the other drivers)
– a rocket (which hits the first car when fired)
In addition to these weapons, power-ups will appear randomly on the track, so keep your eyes peeled for these advantages and grab them before your opponents do.

With both Facebook and Game Center integration, you can invite your friends to play and keep track of your high scores on the global leaderboard.

Additional features include WiFi multiplayer and split screen multiplayer (on iPad and iPhone 6 Plus only).

Young and old, boys and girls – this unique racing game with its brand new concept will excite and captivate everyone who is a fan of kart racers, crash driving, and putting the pedal to the metal.

Wall Race: 1 game, 2 unique tracks, 3 racing cars, 4 weapons. Unlimited amounts of fast fun.
