Best Free iPhone Apps

What better way to start a week than by downloading a bunch of nifty new paid iPhone and iPad apps without paying a cent? We shared tons of great iOS apps on sale with you last week, and we’re jumping right back into it with a new list today. As always, these are limited-time sales that could be over at any time, so be sure to jump on anything that looks appealing.

DON’T MISS: Meet the tweak every Netflix user needs: ‘God Mode’

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.

SkySafari 4

Normally $2.99.


SkySafari 4 is the next-generation award-winning astronomy app re-imagined for iOS 7!

If you’re new to SkySafari, this is basic version. It includes everything you need to get started learning the night sky: 120,000 stars; over 200 star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies; all major planets and moons, and dozens of asteroids, comets, and satellites – including the ISS.

Here’s what you can do with SkySafari 4:

Simulate the night sky from anywhere on planet Earth, up to 100 years in the past or future. Search for celestial objects, and locate them in the sky using your iDevice’s built-in motion hardware. Animate transits, conjunctions, eclipses, and other events with SkySafari’s Time controls. Explore the sky with Night Vision turned on, and preserve your eyesight after dark.

Learn the history, mythology, and science of the heavens from SkySafari’s hundreds of object descriptions. Browse hundreds of astronomical photographs and NASA spacecraft images. Stay up-to-date with SkyWeek, Sky & Telescope’s mobile portal to all major sky events for every day of the week. Miss nothing!

All this is built into SkySafari 4 – you don’t need an internet connection to use it. SkySafari’s streamlined interface turns your iOS device into a celestial travel guide! SkySafari 4 Plus and Pro add even more – but the basic version is everything the casual stargazer will ever want. (Please note: there is no discount upgrade path to SkySafari 4 Plus or Pro.)

If you’ve used SkySafari before, here’s what’s new in version 4:

* Reinvented look-and-feel with new app icons and artwork to match the style of iOS 7.
* Complete rewrite of compass code for much smoother and more accurate motion tracking. With compass on, search for any object, and an animated arrow now leads the way to help you locate it in the sky.
* Apple Maps integration: choose your location from a built-in Maps view.
* Animated meteor showers, with complete viewing information and spectacular graphics.
* New horizon panoramas: Yerba Buena Gardens in downtown San Francisco, Uluru (Ayers Rock) Australia, and the top of Mauna Kea on Hawaii’s Big Island. Or add your own!
* New and updated descriptions for hundreds of objects. On iPhone, swipe left-to-right to toggle Object Info between data and description. On iPad, both are displayed side-by-side.
* Dozens more tweaks, bug fixes, and additions we don’t have room to list here!
