10 paid iPhone apps on sale for free for a limited time

Best Free iPhone Apps

We survived CES 2016! To celebrate, we’ve put together a list of 10 paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for a limited time. These sales could be over in 2 days or 2 minutes, so the only way to be sure you get them while they’re free is to download them right now. There are also a couple of good freebies left in yesterday’s post if 10 apps aren’t enough for you.

MUST SEE: The 12 most innovative things we saw at CES 2016

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.

Make the Film of your Life!

1SE is an app that stitches the moments of your life into a single continuous chronological movie.

FEATURED by Apple, Fast Company, TED, CNN, BBC, & countless more!

For over 4 years, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I’ve passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.

Being able to quickly relive every single day of my life has provided me with a treasured perspective on life. It holds me accountable for making each day notable.

When I turn 40, I’ll have a 1 hour compilation that encapsulates my 30s. If I live to see 80 years of age, I’ll have a 5-hour video that summarizes 50 years of my life.

1SE is a minimalist video diary.


+ The App accesses any videos currently in your camera roll & sorts them by date.

+ Setup friendly creative reminders so you never forget a day!

+ Keep multiple timelines! You could have one for yourself… for each of your kids… your dinner… what you wear every day… etc!

+ NEW! Turn your Seconds into Animated Gifs to instantly share!

+ 1SE Crowds! Submit a second from your life to videos made up from hundreds of us… Let’s view everyday life from countless of perspectives!

+ Super Seconds! It gives you an extra 50% more time when you need it!

+ Chosen seconds back up with the app in iCloud (if you back up your phone with iCloud)

+ Compile any given amount of time desired—the last month, year, or just select a start and end date.

+ Your seconds are privately held on your phone. You never have to share this with anyone if you don’t want to. The primary purpose of this App is to help you remember your own life. Sharing is optional.
