iOS Apps Gone Free: PuzzleGo, Yapa, Perfect Captions, And Hipsta Chez

October 17, 2011

Jigsaw puzzles are a classic and a good way to spend the time, and now you can have dozens of them in your pocket. If that weren't enough head scratching, we have a physics puzzler where you must maneuver a UFO to solve baffling mazes of obstacles. Come across a real UFO? Add that perfect caption and share those photos quickly with a fun, free photo app. If you're a brainiac but find the traditional Chess a bit stale, try your hand at a twisted version.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.
