Today’s apps gone free: PowerCam 7, Castle Raid 2, Guest List Organizer and more

September 27, 2014

Turn your iDevice into a powerful, multi-use camera with PowerCam 7. We also have a strategy game that allows you to go toe-to-toe with your friends, and an app that will help take the pain out of organizing events.

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:

Guest List Organizer ($4.99 → Free, 15.3 MB): This productivity app provides a simple way to organize events. It’s great for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and every other type of big event that requires you to track attendees.

Guest List Organizer takes the pain out of organizing events and tracking guests. You’re able to import friends from Facebook and your Contacts to save precious time, or you can import guests from previous events. Guest List Organizer allows you to track every last detail about each guest thanks to pre-defined and customizable fields. You’re also able to manage relationships between guests and sort them by attendance, name, and RSVP status.

Guest List Organizer is available for free today only (09/27). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 15 ratings.

Aura – Camera Photo Editor: Filters, Frames & Image Patterns + Vintage Pic Borders & Best IG Text Effects. Edit Fun Pictures for Instagram! ($0.99 → Free, 27.4 MB): Add everything from filters to frames to your photos with Aura. It’s a one-stop shop for anyone looking to beautify their photos.

We’re recommending Aura today because of the sheer amount of editing options it offers. After snapping or importing a photo, you’ll see a single toolbar across the bottom of the screen. This toolbar houses every option, and you can access them all with horizontal swipes. Aura allows you to crop and adjust your photo, apply filters, apply effects, add text, and add frames and borders. The best part is, each option is available the moment you download the app; there’s not a single in-app purchase to be found here.

Aura – Camera Photo Editor: Filters, Frames & Image Patterns + Vintage Pic Borders & Best IG Text Effects. Edit Fun Pictures for Instagram! is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 33 ratings.

PowerCam 7 ($0.99 → Free, 35.4 MB): Turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a powerful, multi-use camera with this photography app. PowerCam 7 was designed to give you more control over the photos and videos you take.

PowerCam 7’s live camera feed provides you with access to all of its features, making it easy to see exactly how your photo or video will turn out before you capture it. It offers four shooting modes, loads of live photo and video effects, and two format options. After you’ve captured your photo or video, you can continue to edit it before sharing it via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and YouTube.

PowerCam 7 is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 6 ratings.

Universal:

Epic Island ($3.99 → Free, 90.3 MB): Come one, come all to Epic Island! Choose your hero and explore the far corners of Epic Island to battle epic monsters and epic titans. The game is for anyone that enjoys bold and colorful online strategy games.

With a name like Epic Island, you’d be crazy not to want to join the fight against huge monsters and powerful titans. You start off with a single hero, and you must accept quests to raid dungeons and take down the monsters that lurk in the shadows to obtain loot. The loot you’ve picked up from your quests can be forged into more powerful weapons and armor, allowing you to battle even greater opponents including other players around the world in epic arena battles. Best of all, you can join a faction every week and try to work your way to the top to earn huge bonuses.

Epic Island is available for free today only (09/27). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 21 ratings.

Castle Raid 2 ($2.99 → Free, 74.1 MB): Battle against your friends and foes in this strategy game. You must balance gathering resources, defending your castle, and attacking your opponent to come out on top. Its unique mix of real-time strategy and castle defense elements make it perfect for anyone looking for a deep mobile gaming experience.

Castle Raid 2 takes classic gaming concepts and mashes them all together to provide you with something wholly unique. You’re tasked with sending peasants out to collect resources while somehow defending your territory and attacking your opponent at the same time. You’re never in direct control of your units; you simply must decide when and where to send them off. The story-based campaign mode will help you hone your skills before you decide to go head-to-head with a friend on the same device.

Castle Raid 2 is available for free today only (09/27). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 216 ratings.

Dodge & Roll ($0.99 → Free, 76.3 MB): Help a little snowball discover who he is in this adventure game. Dodge and Roll is for anyone that likes solving dynamic puzzles in chaotic environments.

Dodge and Roll has it all: Challenging puzzles, gorgeous environments, and some magic! You’re able to guide the little snowball around the environments using a single on-screen joystick or a supported controller. The main goal is to collect all of the snowflakes and reach the end of the level as quickly as possible. That’s easier said than done since each level is littered with dangerous obstacles like fireballs and lasers that will melt you down, but you can teach your little snowball magical spells in order to survive.

Dodge & Roll is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 45 ratings.
