Best Free iPhone Apps

This past weekend was a huge weekend for Apple, and there are now more than 13 million people in possession of shiny new iPhones. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were huge sellers among Apple fans, but buying a new iPhone is only the first step. Now, you’ve got to fill it with nifty new apps — and perhaps BGR can be of some assistance.

Today, we’ve got a great list of 9 paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for a limited time, so be sure to grab them all before these sales are over.

DON’T MISS: Huge iOS 9 security flaw lets anyone see your photos and contacts without a PIN – here’s how to stop it

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.


Normally $0.99.

Run a metronome on your Apple Watch and receive haptic feedback for each note. No longer do you have to listen for the metronome sound to tell you when the beat has hit. Instead let it tap your wrist.

Think of this, playing live on stage with your instrument and nearest to your instrument is your wrist tapping to the beat. I can’t think of a better place and way to keep the beat.

No more needing to tap your foot. Let Apple Watch tap your wrist instead.

This tool is for entertainment purposes only. As the Watch doesn’t allow apps to continuously run, the metronome will stop at either 15 or 70 seconds based on your General-Wake Screen-On Tap setting on your watch. For best results, place the watch on the inner portion of your wrist so that the watch doesn’t automatically shut down because of lowering your wrist.
