[iOS] Get over 15 paid apps for free (August 21, 2012)! [Limited time offer]

There are many apps in the Apple App Store that drop their prices to free everyday. Finding only the best to download is the hard part. I searched through the many freebies and picked out the best apps for you to download. Hand picked and free for a limited time, what could be better!

Featured Freebie

The featured freebie is “The Best” app from today’s pick. If you had one app to download, this would be it!

Quick Brightness, by Atomix Ltd., can quickly change your brightness level by just launching the app. For years, app developers have tried to find ways to change iDevice settings without the several clicks it takes to do so by going through the settings menu. This app allows you to set a predetermined brightness level, so that when you click the app on your home screen, the brightness will immediately change to that level. For those users who play around with brightness level all the time, this will be a must-have app.

    Dear Ashraf,

    w/o having even looked at the app I DO get the point of fermier and I agree fully!
    IMHO dottech is not a site to recommend apps that try to betray users. Dropping price to ZERO is a cheap trick when you charge exhaustive amounts in-app.

    No hard feelings, Frank

    @fermier: Of course, dialogue is always welcome, and I understand what your point is. I’d just suggest in the future to not repeat it multiple times in a span of few days because despite the honest intentions behind it, it comes off as trolling.

  • fermier

    Not sure what “trolling” is…fishing? In any event, healthy and a bit testy dialogue brings some spice and hopefully readers, surely you can agree to that. I will not post the same thing any more, having perhaps at least made some point. Any real issue which personally offends me has nothing to do at all with you, but with a system that permits four out of five iTunes items to be aimed at children. Yes they are the future, but surely grownups count for something as well.

    @fermier: Oh please. Play the greater-than-thou card somewhere else. You’ve posted almost the same comment two days in a row and likely would post again had you not been confronted. That isn’t spreading knowledge; it is trolling.

    That said, yes many developers are moving towards an in-app purchase and ads model after giving a shot at paid apps (even some paid apps have in-app purchases). This is out of our control. Brett is not listing apps that claim to be free; he is posting apps which, according to App Store, have dropped their price to $0. If you don’t like the apps, don’t getthem. It really is as simple as that.

    And please don’t put words in my mouth.

    You are saying then that people should not be aware of what these can be? Do you really think it’s just a matter of “If you don’t like it, then don’t get them”? Surely as an intelligent person you might realise that knowledge, even if unpleasant, is better than lack of knowledge.

  • Ashraf

    @fermier: Then don’t get them. Brett is simply reporting all the apps that drop their price to free. If you don’t like them, don’t get them. I don’t see why this is a big issue. It isn’t in our hands what developers do.

    Picked one just at random, being intrigued by the name “Mechanic Panic.” Free…? The “in-app purchases” totaled $54.00 !! I know you mean well, but don’t be fooled.

    Of “Free, Regularly $x” iTunes apps, perhaps one in twenty is legitimate. The others contain banner advertisements or, most often, require “in-app purchases.” The developer proclaims free in order gain the publicity of being listed. Too, since an astonishing four of five (82%) iTunes apps are for young children, and of that number nearly half (47%) for infants and 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? If even a few of the parents don’t later complain, the developer still comes out ahead.
