Great iPhone apps haven’t always been free but with Apple making a few changes like making app returns easier, life seems to be more sorted for users.
Here are a few paid apps that will be available for free this week:
1. Remote Pro: Remote Access The Easy Way
This app is really cool and lets you control your Mac from your phone. The user can even use your iPhone or iPad like a miniature version of a mouse, if having a mouse the size of a phone doesn’t frustrate you. There are other apps like this out there, though, this one seems to be the most feature-packed. This app would normally cost $1.99 USD, but this week its free.
2. Trader’s Way: Investing Without Investing
Trader’s Way, a virtual stock market simulation app, is also free this week. The iPhone simulation is simple enough with buttons telling how much you “made” (or lost) on a trade, and a scroll bar at the bottom to negotiate the purchase and sale of trades.
3. Quick Reposter: It’s All In The Name
The third app on the list is for the social aficionados. Quick Reposter, as the name suggests, lets you share sites and other online content to Instagram quickly. Your Instagram friends won’t thank us when you nab this free download (and your ticket to oversharing), but you just might.
4. Mammoth Password Manager: The Memory of A…Mammoth?
Okay, so it’s not quite as good as an elephant’s memory, but the Mammoth Password Manager is good enough to take the fourth spot on the list. The application touts itself as an easy-to-use, secure program that helps you generate strong, unique passwords for any website. Mammoths might be extinct, but it doesn’t look like this app will be anytime soon.
5. Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion
Here we official enter the gaming zone. If Luigi’s Mansion is your cup of tea, Ghosts of Wayne Mansion is also free this week in the App Store. This mystery has you exploring a haunted house (think Clue, plus ghosts) and has some pretty stellar graphics for mobile as well. Usually $6.99, this mystery game won’t cost you a penny for a limited time.
6. Klep The Thief VR Missions: The Fun Never Stops
And the gaming list continues with the Klep The Thief. As App Picker notes, this game has nearly unlimited levels, and makes use of hot, new virtual reality technology. This means that the player will actually feel like they’re in the game world (or, as close as is currently technically feasible). VR is an emerging technology being used in a many games and other apps. So, raid on, fellow thieves, and steal this entertaining app for free while you can.
7. StickyBoard 2: Post-Its Gone Virtual
If you love Post-It Notes for everyday reminders (and who doesn’t?), StickyBoard is your kind of app. Billed as a “giant whiteboard with an endless stack of sticky notes,” it’s a dream come true if you’re about as organized as a procrastinating college student. The best part? No stickies to lose, of course. And the fact that the $4.99 price tag is temporarily slashed isn’t so bad, either.
