Best Free iPhone Apps November 2 2015

We hope you have a fun Halloween weekend! If you’re bummed to be back at work now, you can try to cheer yourself up by getting eight paid iPhone apps that would normally cost you $19 but are all completely free to download if you act right now. Let’s check them out!

FROM EARLIER: The first new ‘Star Trek’ TV series in over a decade is set to debut in 2017

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.

The patented Gaitometer measures the symmetry of steps when walking (or running), and provides real-time audible and visual feedback to assist the user in obtaining a more symmetric and healthy gait. A selectable Gait Warning sound can be used to provide immediate feedback to help the user reduce gait irregularities.
The measure of gait symmetry is calculated as a “Gait Ratio”, where the duration of each step is compared to the duration of the previous step (gait cadence). In addition to immediate gait ratio feedback, a gait history is stored and displayed in increments of minutes, hours, and days. The Gaitometer should be worn at the center of the body, and will work best on consistent surfaces such as smooth sidewalks, running tracks, treadmills, etc.
