Best Free iPhone Apps

It’s our last list of the week, but don’t despair — we’ve got a great one for you today. Thursday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was our biggest of the week, and some of them are still free downloads for a limited time. Today, we’re back again today with a fresh new list of free iOS apps that are normally paid but are completely free for a limited time.

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 $1.99.

*** “A $2 app that re-focuses photos like a $400 Lytro.” – The NY Times

Blow your friends away with FocusTwist, an app that allows you to create and share “twists” – images that can be *re-focused* AFTER you take them!

This is the full-featured, widely recognized FocusTwist app, which will transform the way you think about photography.

* Easily capture images
* Share online directly from your iPhone
* Access our curated gallery with twists from world class photographers
* Take your photography to a new level

Focusing an image after you take it works great on for food, toys, fashion, nature, architecture – any scene with multiple elements to focus on.

For best results, compose a scene with something interesting very close to your phone’s camera (3-4 inches away) and another element further away (> 5 feet).

Try to hold the phone still during the few seconds it takes to focus and capture a twist.

Rembrandt has one goal: making sure you never miss an appointment again.

Quick Alarms

Shopping List

Normally $1.99.

Going to the supermarket, we look in the fridge and write down what we need to buy, to shopping list. Most recently, shopping lists, notepads and papers moved into our smartphones. We’re, when we create our app, looking at “shopping list” differently.
In “Magnet List” app, to create a product, write in the search box: what, how much and at what price we need (only name is possible). After that, square magnet will appear with the initial letter of the product. Pull it to the right – and he’s in the shoping cart. Once again, the right – he is at home. On next time you will make purchase, you can look in the House section, and re-add it to the shopping list. So there is a circulation of products! Long press on magnet, in any section, will remove it. And if it need, it will be in the same form, when you start typing the name in the search. And of course, if you click on the magnet itself, you can make own product photos or choose from the gallery. Navigate between lists with left/right swipe. You should try it, to make sure that “shopping list” can be simple, but not boring. Also, you can choose color theme what you like. Enjoy your shopping!
