Today’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch free apps daily include a contacts manager, motion control game, mind bending app, and ambient sounds 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.
Keytact ($0.99 -> Free, iPhone): A contacts manager that makes it easy to contact friends and family the way you want. You can call, message, email, or place a video call, and set a default for each individual contact. To initiate a conversation, you simply tap on the contact’s picture.
Lightblade Academy ($0.99 -> Free, Universal): A motion control based game that lets you hold your iOS device as a lightsaber. You get to play Jedi training, like Luke, as you try to block blasts from the little orb floating in the distance.
The Fourth Dimension ($1.99 -> Free, Universal): It’s great to come across apps that breaks the mold, and The Fourth Dimension absolutely obliterates the mold. At the most basic level, it’s a 30 page interactive book that covers one mathematical topic in intuitive detail. The app details the fourth dimension, and it uses language that is easily understandable by cutting out any formulas, jargon, or any language that needs special mathematical knowledge. Each page delivers an interactive model that can be manipulated in 3D as a reference point for the discussion of 4D.
Thunderspace ($4.99 -> Free, Universal) [Review]: The app provides deluxe thunderstorm recordings to listen to. These aren’t just simple audio files, but rather stereoscopic 3D audio that supplies unique strings to both ears to immerse you in the sound. With Thunderspace and a pair of headphones, you can feel like you’re in the middle of a rain storm, without having to get wet. The app takes it to the next level by using the iPhone flash sensor to simulate lightning in your surroundings.
