    I agree, I have found some “Gems” on the free for a day giveaway.

    Appreciate the heads up.

    Interesting viewpoint. I personally troll the App Store every single night for deals and while I sometimes end up downloading something similar to the “demo version” you are describing, most apps are quite the opposite. They are newbie developers who are trying to get noticed and want to get their app some publicity. I have accumulated nearly 300 legitimate “free for a day” apps on my iPhone over the last year. None of them are demo versions. Some of them have in-app purchases, but only for things that I don’t need (i.e. extras). And yes, some have annoying banners, but I have learned to live with that, given how useful the app is. I actually end up supporting the developer and removing ads with an in-app purchase if their app is awesome.

    To be honest, I personally like the odds of scouring the App Store and ending up with around one useful free app a day.

    My experience: Perhaps one in 20 is really free. The others are just the demo versions, or have banner advertisements, or require “in-app purchases.” The developers proclaim “free!” in order gain the publicity of being listed. Too, since more than four of five (82%) iTunes apps are for young children, and of that number nearly half (47%) for toddlers, there is a lot of monkey business. The child, wanting – needing! – to gain more levels or powers, is pleased to push the “buy” button; what does it know or care? The parent of course discovers later, but if even a few of them don’t complain the developer still comes out ahead.

    @JB: The freebie offer probably ended. App Store discounts tend to change quickly, often without notice — you need to be quick to jump on them.

  • Brett


    @JB: Both apps were verified as free when the article was posted. Unfortunately, we have no control over when app developers decide to return their apps to normal price. Hopefully you can grab them next time! Keep checking back to see if they go free again.

    Great apps, but MusicTandem and Photo slice are still $1.99
