Best Free iPhone Apps

It’s time to finish the week strong with one last batch of nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps that are all on sale for free for a limited time. Yesterday’s post brought you seven paid apps regularly worth more than $60 that were all on sale for free — and some of them can still be downloaded for free if you hurry. Today, we have eight new apps for you and there are some great ones to choose from.

DON’T MISS: Black Friday 2014 hub

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.

Prune: To reduce.

Prune is a beautifully designed fun new iPhone application built to enrich your life. It’s the ultimate habit breaker. With 30 seconds of your time you can set up your objectives and prune them out of your life. Done. It’s that easy.

You add goals (aka habits) that you want to live without for a specific time period. We use the term goal and habit interchangeably.

Promo Video:


Add a goal
This is the default screen when you first launch.
You can add a date in the past if you gave up something a few days ago. Any goal you add starts from today. So even if you gave something up in the past, a goal of 1 day is tomorrow.

Connect to a friend and share each other’s goals. Select the connections button, hit “+” to add a new connection and enter your friend’s code. You can send messages to your friend within the app. You can also delete the connection at any time.

Update the goal name
You can update the goal name by selecting the goal, viewing the item detail screen and swiping to the right. Then select on the goal name to edit it. Goals must be named uniquely and we will not let you save the name if that name is already taken by another goal.

Reset the goal
To reset a goal, swipe to the left in the overview screen. Resetting the goal will restart the goal starting now with the same goal unit and goal count. For example, if you were wanting to stop drinking soda for two days and a day into your goal you had soda, you can reset your goal and now you have another two days to stop drinking soda.

Delete the goal
You can delete a goal by swiping to the left in the overview screen.

Resurrect a goal
Any goal that you had deleted is able to be resurrected. There is an option in the add screen to view all deleted goals. If you choose to resurrect the goal, you will be given the chance to edit the goal before beginning. From the resurrection list, you can presently delete goals should you no longer wish to have them on your device.

Receive a suggestion for a goal.
We provide a few suggestions of habits that you can prune out. These load from an external server and require an Internet connection to receive them. Selecting on a suggested habit will allow the user to edit the goal before beginning.

Share your progress
Facebook – If you have a Facebook account on your device, we use it. Otherwise, we present a web view.
Twitter – Must have a Twitter account associated in the settings of your device
Email – Must have an email account on your device

Support / Help
There are instructions visible after swiping down from the overview screen. This action reveals a “?” which when selected, will give you the ability to contact the company as well as view instructions. After 10 launches of the app, a “Write a review” button will appear here.

You will receive progress notifications on the goal. We will schedule them at four intervals, from goal start date until completion date:
