Today’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch free apps daily include a digital board game, photo editor, side scrolling sword combat, and virtual pet app. A number of apps drop from paid to free on a daily basis*, and we pick the top four everyday, as many of the others aren’t worth your time even for free. Everyday we try to pick apps that are worth spending money on, but are now free to download, and here they are.
*Price drops are temporary, and usually last for just 24 hours, so be quick to download.
Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy ($4.99 -> Free, iPad): A digital version of the award winning board game that challenges you to try to rule the galaxy. You will explore new star systems, research advanced technologies, and build deluxe spaceships. The game features seven species to play as, three computer difficulty levels, asynchronous online multiplayer, and support for up to six players (human or AI).
Enhance ($0.99 -> Free, iPhone): A photo editing app from Hootsuite that offers quick access to cropping, adding filters, applying watermarks, and more. The app connects to multiple sharing services to offer a complete solution from editing a photo to sharing it on multiple services, all from one app.
God of Blades ($2.99 -> Free, Universal) [Review]: A 2D side scrolling action game where you use various swipe gestures to perform swipe attacks against waves of varying enemies. In every level, enemies rush towards you, and your character is always on the move so that there’s non-stop action. You then swipe up, down, left, or right to perform different attacks that have different power and range.
Hatchi ($0.99 -> Free, Universal) [Review]: The app is a retro virtual pet simulator that is also a shout out to Tamagotchi, and has the same style of feel. You begin with a creature cracking out of its shell, and then you get to raise it right on your iPhone. Hatchi is just like having Tamagotchi on your iPhone with the same 8-bit black and white graphics, and simple but cute pet. Recent updates have added considerable new content.
