Today's Apps Gone Free: Zombie Wonderland 2, Do Date, Tuner&Beat Master, And More

February 29, 2012

The town of Niceville is being invaded by zombies once again, so it's up to you to board up the windows, blast the zombies to bits, and clean up the mess in Chillingo's defense game, Zombie Wonderland 2. We also have a reminders app that's able to post upcoming dates and events to your lock screen, and an app that will help musicians tune their instruments and maintain a beat.

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.

iPhone:

Do Date allows you to disable all or individual reminders in case you get tired of hearing about them, and it also allows you to change the time notifications are sent. The app, due to Apple's restrictions, is able to send up to 10 reminders at a time to Notification Center. **We decided to include Do Date for a second time this month since the last time it was featured the App Store was experiencing the "item being modified" issue.**
