iOS Apps Gone Free: Paleolithics, Gourmet Food, Time Off, And More

January 28, 2012

Paleolithic people appear to have a lot going on. In order to help them survive and flourish, assist them in completing various tasks. You'll be in charge of a small group to complete each objective, and it will be a challenge. After a hard day's work, you've probably worked up an appetite. How about a nice gourmet meal? Don't know how? Putting aside a little time, you can learn those fancy words and seemingly elaborate cooking methods without ever taking a class with the Gourmet Food app by Brainscape. Above all else, everyone needs some free time, right? Well, today's business app is the perfect tool to request, track, and report all of those paid time off activities, such as a well needed vacation. As a plus, you can use the Time Off app for both you and your significant other.
