Best Free iPhone Apps

This has been a great week so far for paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free, but the week isn’t quite over just yet. Wednesday’s list of nine apps on sale was a good one, but Thursday’s batch might be even better. Today we have seven solid iOS apps for you including a wildly popular iOS 8 keyboard, and they’re are normally paid but are on sale for a very limited time. These sales could end minutes from now or days from now, there’s no way to tell — so hurry up if you want to get these nifty apps for free!

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 are free at the time this post is published. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Snapmate is an innovative app using wifi network that lets you share photos or videos with friends or family nearby during you are taking photos and videos.

It’s not sharing after finishing taking the photo or video; during a trip or when in outside with your family or friends, a simple connection would automatically save the photo and video in their camera roll whenever you take a photo and a video.

Taking photos at the same place and sharing right there through this app would make the trip much more fun.

The realtime filter inside Snapmate will show realtime filter results and aid in the photo and video taking.

Download it now and take photos with friends. The time you spend with them would become much happier.

How to use:

1. Choose the device to connect after opening the connection window.
2. Tap the device you wish to connect and invite them (Invited person should accept the invitation).
3. The photos and videos taken after connection would be automatically shared (**if the sharing doesn’t work, please check your connection or check if the devices are too far away)

– You should turn on wifi for using this app.
– The real time filter and multipeer direct sharing feature are used simultaneously, and could result in faster battery consumption
– Please use screen saver mode to save battery. Sharing still works in Screen saver mode.
– Multipeer Conncetivity is a new iOS7 feature. It especially does not support multitasking, so in the background state, the peer to peer sharing would not work. (returning to the app after background state would require you to connect again)
– High photo quality would result in slower sharing between devices. To use peer to peer sharing, please set the quality to below medium.
– 3 or lower people would result in faster sharing due to the limitation of transfer speed.
– If the distance between the devices increases or there is much obstacles between devices, the Wifi signal gets weaker, and could cause failure in sharing. (safe distance: 5m)
