iPhone And iPad Apps Gone Free: Axe In Face, ExpenSense, Air Harp, And More

December 11, 2010
Today's AGF list includes an axe-throwing flower defense game, an app that will help you keep track of your personal finances, a digital lap harp, and much more. Disclaimer: All prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. iPhone: Tiki Totems Premium ($.99 -> Free): A physics-based puzzle game where you must get the golden totem to the bottom of the screen by removing a specific number of blocks.  The totem can’t touch the ground and it can’t fall from a high distance.  The game features 208 challenging puzzles and OpenFeint integration. Tiki Totems Premium is available for free today only (12/11).  It has a four-star rating and a total of 850 ratings. Axe in Face ($.99 -> Free): A daffodil defense game that requires you to behead your enemies with an axe by drawing a line from you to them before they reach the flower bed.  The game features colorful yet bloody cartoon graphics, 32 levels, power-ups, and Game Center integration. Axe in Face is available for free today only (12/11).  It has a four-star rating and a total of 44 ratings. The Crystals of Atlantis Deluxe ($.99 -> Free): A match-3 game that has you traveling around the world and uncovering ancient treasure.  It features two game modes, five locations, 70 levels, and six power-ups. The Crystals of Atlantis Deluxe is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating and a total of 354 ratings. Gravity Runner ($.99 -> Free): A mix between a running game and a regular platformer.  Your character automatically runs, and you must simply tap the screen to avoid obstacles.  But unlike most running games, in this one you can actually run into boxes and walls without dying, just not the spikes.  The game features 28 levels, an unlockable endless mode, power-ups, and OpenFeint integration. Gravity Runner is available for free today only (12/11).  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating and a total of 697 ratings. 1000: Find 'Em All! ($.99 -> Free): What can only be described as a digital treasure hunting game.  Travel around an open environment to find and collect over 1,000 items.  You can do so manually, or travel around in the real world and have the game track your location via GPS. 1000: Find 'Em All! is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating and a total of 501 ratings. ExpenSense ($4.99 -> Free): A personal finance app for the home and business user.  It offers a ton of features, including passcode protection, hierarchical expense browsing, the ability to add any number of accounts, built-in calculator, expense/income graphical reports, full text search, and the ability to export to Excel or Numbers via email. ExpenSense is available for free for a limited time.  It has a four-star rating and a total of five ratings. Jump O'Clock ($.99 -> Free): A jumping game similar to Dizzypad where you are required to tap the screen to jump from one gear to the next in your quest to go as high as possible.  Some gears have spikes, while others have an electrical charge, so you must be quick and nimble while jumping.  Bolts can be gathered in order to obtain a super jump.  The game features randomly generated environments and OpenFeint integration. Jump O'Clock is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating and a total of 2,879 ratings. mPassword ($.99 -> Free): Is able to generate, record, and help you maintain all of your login information and passwords.  You are required to create an unlock code for the app upon installing in order to keep your information safe and secure. mPassword is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-star rating and a total of 79 ratings. FunWithWords ($1.99 -> Free): Allows you to create unique stories by giving you a handful of outlines to choose from and then having you fill in the blanks.  New stories are constantly added via updates, so you shouldn't run out anytime soon. FunWithWords is available for free today only (12/11).  It has a three-star rating and a total of 8 ratings. Corkbin ($.99 -> Free): An app that functions as a mobile blogging platform for wine enthusiasts.  Allows you to capture photos of your wine, comment on them, and share their location.  You can also view wines shared by other users, look up common wine terms, view the best food and win pairings, and more. Corkbin is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-star rating and a total of 81 ratings.

LostPixels is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating and a total of 61 ratings. Universal: Air Harp ($.99 -> Free): A digital lap harp that features 2 octaves (15 strings).  You can play your favorite tunes by ear, or play popular songs using sheet music, but it will cost you some dough.  The app works just fine on the iPhone, but you will only get the full experience on the iPad since it supports sheet music. Air Harp is available for free through the weekend.  It has a three-star rating and a total of 74 ratings. Kuboku ($1.99 -> Free): A 3D sudoku game with an 8-position cube.  You must simply fill in all of the missing numbers on the cube.  The game features 1,000 levels with increasing difficulty, full touch controls, and Game Center integration. Kuboku is available for free today only (12/11).  It has a three-and-a-half-star rating and a total of seven ratings. DropZap ($.99 -> Free): A puzzle game that mashes together a few other genres as well.  Tap and drag your finger across the screen to select a column to drop your block in.  When a block lands, it will fire lasers and shrink the blocks below it and on each side of it.  Large blocks will shrink one size, and the smallest block will disappear, possibly creating a massive chain reaction.  Keep dropping blocks until you can’t drop anymore.  The game features five modes of play, including split-screen multiplayer, and global leaderboards. DropZap is available for free for a limited time.  It has a three-star rating and a total of 134 ratings. iPad: Jigsaw Mansion for iPad ($4.99 -> Free): A visually appealing jigsaw game designed exclusively for iPad.  It features full 360 degree piece rotation, multi-touch controls, nine original pieces of artwork, and auto-save.

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 average 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.
