Best Free iPhone Apps

Following yesterday’s list of 12 paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free — some of which are still free downloads if you hurry — we have another nine premium apps on sale for you today. Games, utilities, photography apps… they’re all covered. As always, act fast before these sales end because they could be over at any time.

DON’T MISS: New YI Home Camera takes on Nest Cam for less than half the price

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.

Orbitum is a hypnotic rhythm-based reflex game of light and darkness.

“It’s surprisingly difficult to leave alone – very hypnotic.” – Chris Priestman, Pocket Gamer

“A stylishly stripped-back and curiously serene arcade experience that has you running on a particularly hazardous cosmic treadmill.” – Jon Mundy, Pocket Gamer

“It’s the perfect little game to pick up and play when you have a spare moment.” – Christine Chan, AppAdvice

The rules are simple: switch the orbits, survive against all odds and keep calm. A tap is all it takes to get through. But you’ll discover less is more when your dexterity starts to be put to the test. Starting off fairly simple and gradually building up into something quite fiendish, the game will keep your grey matter ticking over in unison with the stimulating techno sounds. Appearing out of nowhere and vanishing in darkness, the round-dancing shapes will make your head swim, hands sweat and teeth clench. But as you get the rhythm you will see that there’s nothing more satisfying than the feeling of genuine achievement after you’ve nailed another hellish level.

Recommended hardware:
iPhone 4 and higher, iPod touch 5th gen, iPad mini, iPad 2 or higher. For the best possible Orbitum experience, use these recommended devices.

Human brain is like a muscle that should be trained a lot to function properly. Surely, everyday life is a game in itself, but haven’t you ever wished you could find things a little faster or concentrate on one task for a little longer? This app is a great tool just for that. With just a few minutes a day practice you will be able to improve areas of brain activity without even noticing it. We have also built in personal stats so you can keep track of your progress.

How to play:

Tap numbers in order, one by one, as fast as you can.

Choose one of two options:

Blitz – the game ends in 60 seconds, your result is how many numbers you’ve managed to find.
Zen – you have unlimited time to find all the numbers, your result is your time.
Implement your own strategy:

– Train reaction by speeding up decisions you made – try to decide without actual thinking about it.
– Train selective attention by looking at whole field searching for a number.
– Train memory by remembering where is the next number you need to tap.
– Train speed and concentration by trying to beat the records you made.
