Best Free iPhone Apps

Another week is almost behind us, but not before we sneak in one last round of nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps that are currently on sale for free. Yesterday’s list brought us seven solid apps worth a combined $35 (hurry and you can still download a few of them for free), and now we have another seven apps to share with you that normally would cost you another $35 all together, but right now every single one of them can be had for free.

DON’T MISS: This secret trick will dramatically improve your iPhone’s battery life

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)

BRAND NEW UPDATE: with new JAW-DROPPING RETINA GRAPHICS for iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C and iPad with Retina display, as well as new ON-RAILS action in the next generation arcade-style 3D SHMUP that is Quantum Legacy HD! Pilot one of 4 unique spaceships during your 3+ hour ON-RAILS journey through 20 action-packed ON-RAILS SHMUP missions filled with breathtaking cinematic game play and highly stylized storytelling, EXCLUSIVELY on the iOS!

• 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 SHUMP graphics with highly polished game play will take your breath away! For the first time ever, Quantum Legacy HD provides you with full native retina support on the iPhone 5, and iPad with Retina display.

>> 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.
