Best Free iPhone Apps

The countdown to Black Friday 2015 continues, but none of the deep discounts you find at your local big box retailer will drop prices all the way down to $0. Here at BGR, however, we’ve plenty of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for you to check out. Today’s list features 10 premium iOS apps on sale for free, and you can also check out yesterday’s post if you want a few more freebies.

WARNING: Amazon suffers potential password leak, unknown number of accounts affected

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.

Air Login

Normally $0.99.

Wherever you go, there’s your Mac.

New from Avatron, the folks who brought you Air Display, Air Stylus, Air Sharing, Air Dictate, and Print Sharing … Air Login keeps you connected to your home and office Macs while you’re on the go.

Air Login connects over the Internet to present your Mac OS X screen on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. A virtual trackpad lets you move a mouse cursor around on the screen and interact with the Mac user interface.

There are other remote-access clients in the App Store. But none can compare with Air Login’s ease of use. With Air Login you spend less time panning around a big screen and more time working with your Mac apps and documents.

• Air Login keeps the Mac menu bar pinned at the top of your iOS screen, even while you zoom and pan the rest of the screen to focus on small UI elements. The menu works instantly because it’s cached locally, and doesn’t need to communicate back to the computer until you select a menu item.
• A Mission Control-like feature called App Grid lets you quickly focus on a particular Mac window or app.
• A custom keyboard gives you all of the special Mac keys that you need.
• Avatron’s advanced Air Connect server connects your devices even if they’re behind firewalls, on a cell connection, or on a very restrictive network. If your Mac can surf the Web, Air Login can operate it remotely.

This version of Air Login can only access Mac computers running OS X 10.7 or later. You will need to install the free Air Connect app on your Mac.

And the Air Connect app itself gives you awesome great connectivity power:

• Connect from Mac to to a remote Mac
• Use Mac OS X’s excellent built-in sharing services
• Screen Sharing (VNC)
• File Sharing (AFP)
• Terminal (SSH)
• Encryption of all communications

We love cloud-storage apps like Dropbox. But with Air Connect, you can stay on the free DropBox plan. Rather than storing every file that you might want to access remotely, inside your Dropbox folder, just use Air Connect to go back to your remote Mac to grab a file when you need it. Never pay $100+ per year again for getting to your own files. As an added security benefit, when you access files through Air Connect, your files never go through our servers and are never stored in the cloud.

Your free Air Connect account lets you use Air Login to connect to any number of computers on your local network, and lets you connect any local Mac to any other. If you want to connect to a remote Mac, you can subscribe to the “Air Login Anywhere” service.

If you like Air Login, please leave a user review here in the App Store. If you have questions, visit for tech support via email or live chat.

Fragment (featured in 153 countries) can transform any image into totally unique, one-of-a-kind prismatic art you’ll want to share with everyone.

It all begins with your images. Take your camera and compose a photo, or select from your Camera Roll. Once you have your image, the enhancing is in full effect. Unleash your inner artist and choose from a collage of inspired frames, shapes and patterns. Watch as your image is “fragmented” instantly into a myriad of prism-like glass pieces, thanks to a lightning-fast interface that works in real time. No lag time here, thank you.

Now dive in and manipulate at will. Rotate, resize, frame, drag, zoom, crop – Fragment is completely scalable and a true reflection of your imagination. Add colors and adjust levels. Desaturate. Blend. Blur. Invert. Or go for something completely random and tap shuffle. It’s all up to you where you want to take it.

Ready to share? Send your vision to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other photo enhancement apps with just a tap. Still going? Hit “Refragment” and keep creating. Simple, and yet so beautiful, isn’t it?

With Fragment, the pieces add up to something extraordinary every time.
