Free iPhone Apps

Hopefully we have all recovered from a weekend of celebration by now, and we’re settling back into reality once again. Perhaps a few nice paid iPhone apps that can be downloaded for free right now will help ease the transition a bit. Today we have four nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps on the menu, and each one is available for free for a limited time.

Since some people still seem to be having a bit of trouble understanding how this works, a quick disclaimer:

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.

With that out of the way, here are today’s apps:

Shares for Flickr

The name of this app is quite confusing, so we’ll briefly explain what it does: Shares for Flickr lets you share photos. On Flickr.

All joking aside, this is a fast and simple app that Flickr fans should definitely check out.

‘Shares’ is lightweight & easy-to-use app specially designed for single purpose – ‘Get shareable URL of photo’

Ever needed fast way to upload photo for sharing with your friends or attaching to your blog/forum post?

With ‘Shares’, it’s really easy to copy direct URL of photo, HTML markup or Markdown syntax.

With 1 TB free storage on Flickr, ‘Shares’ comes in handy when you need shareable/embeddable URL of the photo.


* Upload original-sized photo from your album to Flickr with single tap.
* Copy direct URL of photo, HTML markup, Markdown syntax to clipboard.
* Multiple sizes : Original/Medium/Small/Thumbnail
* Upload history for later use.
* Custom URL scheme which works greate with others apps (eg. ‘Drafts’)

Shares for Flickr is typically a $1.99 download but it’s free right now if you move fast.
