Best Free iPhone Apps

It’s our last list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free this week, and we’re making sure to close things out with a bang. Today’s list features 10 great paid iOS applications that are all on sale for free right now, but these sales could end at any time, so you’d better hurry.

There are also still a few nifty freebies in yesterday’s post if you’re quick!

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.

Dwelp is an elegant little puzzler with a brand new game mechanic. To complete a puzzle, just link all of the same-colored dots by placing them one near another. There’s a catch, though… Once you have connected two dots, the others of the same color become locked in their place.

It’s so simple to understand, yet it opens up a whole world of possibilities! Why “only” 120 puzzles, then? Because they were carefully selected from hundreds of others, in order to offer you only the best of the best.

Each puzzle has more than one solution (and some have thousands). Will you find the one that requires the least number of moves? That’s the real challenge! Should you complete it, you will be treated to a select number of puzzles that are bordering on impossibility. But the satisfaction of solving one of those can’t be described in words…

Designed specifically for the iOS devices and carefully crafted to the tiniest detail, Dwelp brings you puzzle solving at its finest.

==== FEATURES ====

• 120 hand-crafted puzzles with a smooth difficulty curve

• An ultra-hard puzzle pack, if you are up to a tough challenge and have some good hours to spare

• Bonus puzzle pack with a different type of gameplay

• Game Center integration with 16 achievements to earn and a global leaderboard to conquer by mastering all the puzzles

• Handy features like the puzzle previewer, the progress saver and the powerful undoer, to enhance your gaming experience

• Easy one-handed portrait-mode control

• Working equally fine in landscape mode without any rotation – on the iPhone too

• IAP-free & ad-free

Zen Sketch

Normally $1.99.

Zen Sketch is a cross between a note-taking and a painting app. We wanted to give people an app with a balance between power and simplicity: A place that could stay out of the way and let them think, but also contained an environment with the ability to add serious detail to their work. And so Zen Sketch was born. The app goes beyond regular ink handwriting apps by using an industry standard drawing/painting engine, but still organizes your work in a logical fashion like any good note-taking app.

Use Zen Sketch to create powerful notes or paintings. All your work can easily be exported out of the app as images or PDFs, and shared in just about every way imaginable. The app has no learning curve, and lets you work in a streamlined and clean interface designed with the latest technology in mind.

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

Turning on or off of your Hue lights has never been so easy. Just select a group , and your actions are limited to this group. The integrated brightness control provides you for every situation in your daily life an appropriate brightness level. So you can use your lights quickly as a nightlight, subtle lighting while watching TV, as normal lighting or very bright lighting. In addition, the widget contains a random button. Be inspired by the random button by leaving your lights shine in random colors.

The app itself allows you to configure your widget. The widget uses the connection to the bridge that you have set via the app.

You can easy manage your groups. Create new groups or remove them. Do not worry if you use multiple devices to control your lights. The groups are saved on your Bridge and are available for all your devices.

The app shows you all the scenes which are stored on your Bridge. You can pick out your favorite scenes to display them in the widget. Because the bridge can store a lot of scenes, you can also hide scenes so that they no longer appear in the overview of the app.

– Buttons Plus Addon
The Buttons Plus addon includes additional features for the widget and the watch app .

Alternative Functions
The control buttons of the widget provide alternative functions if you tap them twice . For example you can tap the ON button twice to activate lights in your favorite color.

If you hold a Control Button you activate its function in a transition. For example you can use the OFF button to turn off your lights slowly over time.

The watch app displays additional buttons to use the new features.

– Color Schemes Addon
With this addon you can create your own Color Schemes and manage them. The widget and the watch app receives an additional button to circle through your Color Schemes.
