August 10, 2010

Today's list features a monster racing game, an ICQ and Jabber client for your iPhone or iPad, a fart machine that can be controlled remotely and more. Disclaimer: All prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Monster Trucks Nitro ($.99 -> Free): A side-scrolling monster truck racer that features superb graphics.  Race through 12 tracks with different monster trucks in order to get the best times and earn medals.  You will be controlling your large wheeled vehicle via tilt or touch controls. Monster Trucks Nitro is available for free today only (8/10). It has a four-star rating, and a total of 400 ratings. CatSpin ($1.99 -> Free): A time-based puzzle game where you control Neko the cat and his rotating world.  In order to complete each level, you must collect all of the gold coins, which will unlock the door.  Doing so is easier said than done since you must spin Neko's world while avoiding spikes, rocks, fire, and other harmful obstacles.  The game features 50 levels, touch or tilt controls and online leaderboards. CatSpin is available for free today only (8/10). It has a four-star rating, and a total of 19 ratings. Juggle ($.99 -> Free): Juggle the squares for as long as possible by sliding your paddle from side to side.  The more squares you keep in the air, the more points you will earn.  The game features three different modes of play, simple yet addictive gameplay, and OpenFeint integration. Juggle is available for free today only (8/10). It has a three-and-a-half-star rating, and a total of 25 ratings. Secret Ballot ($.99 -> Free): If you are having difficulties getting a group of people to make a decision, then this is your app. Just enter the number of people that will be voting into the app, then enter the choices everyone will be voting on and pass your iDevice around so the votes can be cast.  You will have your answer in no time. Secret Ballot is available for free for an undisclosed amount of time. It has a four-star rating, and a total of 18 ratings. Universal: MobiQ IM ($1.99 -> Free): A messaging app that supports ICQ, Jabber and Mail.Ru.  You can create multiple accounts, transfer photos, type in landscape mode, easily jump between chats, view chat history and so much more. MobiQ IM is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating, and a total of 179 ratings. Fart Studio ($.99 -> Free): For the low-brow humor enthusiasts out there.  Contains tons of different fart sounds along with some fairly disgusting visuals.  You can play practical jokes on your friends by setting the timer to release a fart at a certain time, or you can control the app remotely from your other iDevice. Fart Studio is available for free for a limited time. It has a three-and-a-half-star rating, and a total of 98 ratings. Developers: If you are a developer who would like to get your app included in our “Apps Gone Free” daily lists, here’s our basic set of rules:
  • The app must be free for at least one whole day.
  • It must have at least a three-star rating at the time it goes free.
  • The app must not have been free numerous times (3+) over the last six months.
To submit an app, simply send a request to [email protected] with the subject “Apps Gone Free.”  Please include the name of the app, a link to it in the App Store, when you intend to offer the app for free and anything else you would like to share.  We will take it from there.
