Another day, another batch of nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps that are now free downloads for a limited time. Tuesday brought a batch of six solid apps worth nearly $50 combined (some of them are still free), and now we have seven more paid apps worth $37 altogether that are all completely free right now — but only if you hurry!

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.

UntilOff tells you how long you can use your phone until it has to be charged again based on your prior usage.

Other apps tell you how long you can use the 3G or browse the internet with the residual battery. UntilOff tells you how long you can use your phone as you used it before.

To achieve this UntilOff takes measurements of your battery level every time you start it. In addition you can activate geo fences to measure the battery level automatically when you leave home or your work.

Start UntilOff after you have charged your phone and every time you need to know the residual battery duration.

In addition UntilOff saves the prediction of the total battery duration. After a while you’ll therefore have the distribution of your total battery duration.

Quantum Legacy HD Turbo

Normally $19.99, currently free.

Experience ON-RAILS action with JAW-DROPPING GRAPHICS in the next generation of arcade-style 3D SHMUPs for the first time with full retina support on all modern iOS devices with a completely redefined “Turbo” style of game play never before seen in the Quantum Legacy Universe!

• Enjoy Simple and Intuitive Controls: tilt your iOS device left/right to steer your ship manually while providing an opportunity for a skillful avoidance of enemy projectiles.
• Alternatively, for a casual ON-RAILS experience: forgo tilting and simply tap your enemies to engage the Auto Pilot while controlling your shields and weapons with a smooth 2-button interface.
• Bright and awe-inspiring JAW-DROPPING Turbo graphics with highly polished game play will take your breath away! For the first time ever, Quantum Legacy HD Turbo provides you with full native retina support on the iPhone 5, and iPad with Retina display.
• 20 story-oriented Turbo campaign missions offer over 3 hours of action-packed SHMUP-style game play.

>> Game Play Basics:

Steer your ship manually by tilting your device left and right, or tap your enemies to engage the ON-RAILS “Autopilot”. To maximize damage, it is best to be facing your enemies directly before pressing the right “Weapons/Fire” button. Holding the left “Shield” button will allow you to deflect all enemy projectiles. Prolonged use of the Weapons/Shields will cause a temporary overload. Note that it is NOT possible to fire your weapons while Shields are active until you level-up your starship and unlock Translucent Shielding at Level 5.

Successfully completing each mission will unlock new game content while allowing you to level-up in an RPG-like fashion. Completing missions 5, 10 and 15 will allow you to FREELY acquire one of 4 unique playable starships.
