Today’s apps gone free: UniqBoard, Fin Friends, Metal Detector and more

August 1, 2014

Take notes, create to-do lists, or just jot down ideas with UniqBoard. We also have an adorable endless distance game that has you rescuing Ruby’s fish friends, and an app that turns your iDevice into a metal detector.

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:

Professional Metal Detector ($0.99 → Free, 5.4 MB): Turn your iDevice into a fully functional metal detector with this utility app.

Professional Metal Detector utilizes your iDevice’s built-in magnetometer to discover metal objects within your vicinity. Simply hold your iDevice up to an object and the numbers on the screen will begin to climb if metal has been discovered. You’re able to set different thresholds for the alarm to sound at, and you’re able to choose from two different themes. Professional Metal Detector is available for free today only (08/01). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 9 ratings.

Laser Level for Walls and Surfaces ($0.99 → Free, 4.5 MB): Make sure your world is level with this helpful utility app.

This virtual laser level places a grid over your live camera feed. Rotate your iDevice to find the sweet spot and turn the grid lines from red to green. You can then view objects through your viewfinder and align them with the grid to level them off. The app includes the ability to calibrate the grid lines any way you like. Laser Level for Walls and Surfaces is available for free today only (08/01). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 15 ratings.

You can also attach tags to your handwritten notes for quick discovery. Notes can be moved freely around the board, checked off, and categorized.
