We brought you a terrific list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free on Tuesday, and some of them are still free downloads if you rush on over to yesterday’s post. Today, however, we have our best list in a long time. Wednesday’s post is packed full of high-quality apps that range from games and photo editors to news readers and an awesome widget. And best of all, of course, they’re all free if you hurry.

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.

“The easiest-to-use panoramic picture app on the iPhone.” – The Wall-Street Journal.
“It’s really hard to take a bad panorama.” – Macworld.
“A 360-degree shot in about 20 seconds.” – Business Insider.
“I was definitely impressed…” – Techcrunch.

We got this review: “Absolutely fantastic app! I swear there are magical unicorns or elves inside my phone stitching these photos together. It’s the only way I can explain it.”
Frankly speaking, we don’t employ magical creatures, but our image processing algorithms analyze data from several components including camera, gyro, compass and accelerometer sensors.

Please note:
– our app only shoots cylindrical panoramas,
– we only stitch the pictures you take with the app,
– in-app HD option is for *all* the panoramas you take on *all* your devices – with the same AppleID,
– your pictures are *not* automatically uploaded unless you explicitly request it.

DerManDar means all-around in Lebanese slang. We noticed too many people had a problem spelling it, so we shortened it to DMD.

Go ahead, challenge it. Try to find that song you think no one else has ever heard of. You’ll see. Instalyrics will bring you instant results.

If you’re a Mac user, you’re going to love the latest, newest and maybe the coolest feature ever. If you’ve downloaded Instalyrics for the Mac (sold separately), you can now find out what song is playing on your Mac from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Yes, you read that right.

The lyric police can rest easy knowing that you’ve got the right words, and won’t need their help.

With so many songs with forced rhyming going on, it’s never been more difficult to actually listen to the words of a song and make sense of them. With Instalyrics on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you’ll have everything you need to make it through any song, confident in every word you sing.

Download Instalyrics now and learn an old song in a new language. Whether you want to sing in French, German, Italian, or just about any language you can think of, all you need to do is bring the talent and let Instalyrics provide the words.
