Best Free iPhone Apps

We have less than a day to go before Thanksgiving is here, and you should thankful for BGR’s series on paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free for a limited time. We save you hundreds of dollars each week by sharing the best paid apps that go on sale for free, and yesterday’s post has a few gems that are still free downloads if you hurry.

Today, however, we have seven new paid apps on sale and if you’re quick, you won’t have to pay a cent for any of them.

DON’T MISS: eBay’s Black Friday sale has some of the craziest deals we’ve seen – everything you need to know

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.

Groops is a puzzle game that will put your mind to the test. Match tiles three at a time based on either shared or completely unique attributes – the number of possibilities will tie your brain in knots! Keep your mind sharp. Play Groops!

• Hundreds of levels of increasing difficulties!
• Infinite, unlimited gameplay in “Time Attack” mode. Get to the top of the leaderboards and send your friends Challenge requests to beat your score!
• Unlock dozens of Achievements!
• Compete against friends in multiplayer mode – who can get the most Groops before time runs out?



LEVELS – Relax, there’s no time pressure. Find all the possible Groops on the screen to advance. You can use Hints if you get stuck (get more by playing TIME ATTACK or from the Powerups menu).

TIME ATTACK – Find as many Groops as possible before time runs out! Make 5 Groops in a row to increase your multiplier, but be careful! If you make an invalid Groop, your multiplier gets reset. Rack up as many points as possible because your score gets added to your points bank.



Match 3 tiles to make a Groop. Tiles have 4 attributes with three options each – SHAPE (square, circle, leaf), COLOR (blue, magenta, yellow), PATTERN (solid fill, striped fill, border only), and SYMBOL (diamond, hourglass, and its 3rd option is no symbol at all). Finding identical tiles is easy, but you’ll eventually need to make Groops based on mixed attributes, and thats where we kick your brain into full-throttle.

Groops can be made by matching tiles with identical attributes, by matching all 3 options of 1 attribute, or by matching three different options across multiple attributes. For example:

• Solid blue square with no symbol, solid blue circle with no symbol, and a solid blue leaf with no symbol. (Same shape – square, same color – blue, same pattern – solid, all different symbols)
• Striped blue square with no symbol, solid magenta circle with a diamond, bordered yellow leaf with an hourglass (All different shapes, all different colors, all different patterns, all different symbols)

NOTE: To make a Groop, either all options are the same, or all different across the attributes. For example, these would be invalid:

• Solid blue square with no symbol, solid blue square with no symbol, solid blue circle with no symbol (two squares and a circle, instead of three squares, or one square, one circle, and one leaf)
• Bordered magenta circle with a diamond, solid yellow circle with a diamond, solid yellow circle with an hourglass (Invalid for two reasons: 1) two yellows and a magenta instead of three yellows or one yellow, one magenta, and one blue. 2) two diamonds and an hourglass instead of three diamonds or one diamond, one hourglass, and one without any symbol at all)

Also, note that your Jet Fighter is equipped with automatic repair systems which will activate shortly after you stop taking damage.

Completing missions, earning XP and leveling-up your HD Jet Fighter to Level 5 will unlock new playable aircraft for FREE. You may also skip the RPG grind and instantly level-up via the use of optional In-App Purchases. Each In-App Purchase can also be Restored, thus allowing you to instantly unlock playable fighter jets on multiple iOS devices.
