Today’s apps gone free: SpeakToSnooze, Cursive Writing Wizard, Recur and more

September 7, 2014

Take control of your alarm without every touching it with SpeakToSnooze. We also have an app that will help your child become a Cursive Writing Wizard, and an app that allows you to see how long it has been since you’ve done something amazing.

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:

CamBlast – Photo Editor ($1.99 → Free, 49.8 MB): An all-in-one tool for editing and personalizing your favorite photos in mere seconds. CamBlast is for those who want to do a little bit of everything to their photos.

With CamBlast, every option is only a tap away. You’re able to put layer upon layer of filters, textures, decorative elements, and text on your photos with very little effort. When applying a new layer, CamBlast takes you through a simple step-by-step process, ensuring that you’re at least able to see every last frame, font, color, and filter option before finalizing your project. CamBlast has a whole lot of options for you as well, with 134 textures, 86 fonts, and 360 design elements.

CamBlast – Photo Editor is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.

SpeakToSnooze Pro – Alarm clock with voice control commands to snooze and turn off your alarm! ($1.99 → Free, 37.6 MB): Take control of your alarm without ever laying a finger on your iDevice with SpeakToSnooze Pro. It’s the perfect app for anyone that has trouble cracking open their eyelids in the morning.

SpeakToSnooze does one thing and does it well: It actually listens to you! You’re able to create multiple alarms just with the sound of your voice. You’re also able to ask for the time so you don’t have to look over at your iDevice and say “Flashlight” to see in the dark. If you’re the kind of person that mashes that snooze button you can set a “I have to get up by” time, which disables the snooze and plays a diabolically annoying sound to ensure you get up.

SpeakToSnooze Pro – Alarm clock with voice control commands to snooze and turn off your alarm! is available for free today only (09/07). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 19 ratings.

Recur! The Reverse To-Do List ($1.99 → Free, 897.3 KB): See how long it has been since the last time you’ve done something amazing with this productivity app. Recur is a reverse to-do list that allows you to see how much time has passed since a specific event. It’s great for those looking to keep track of everything from the mundane to the extraordinary.

Recur couldn’t possibly be any easier to use or any more useful. For each event you add, you’ll see how many minutes, seconds, days, weeks, and months have gone by since the last time you’ve participated in it. If you find yourself participating in the event again, swipe left to right across it to reset the timer and add to the count. You’re also able to view a running history of all of the times the you’ve participated in the event, set a reminder to do it again, and edit it.

Recur! The Reverse To-Do List is available for free today only (09/07). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 52 ratings.

Universal:

Cursive Writing Wizard – Trace Letters & Words ($3.99 → Free, 26.4 MB): Your child will become a cursive writing wizard after spending some time with this fun educational app. The app is the ideal app for parents and teachers looking to teach their children the long lost art of cursive writing.

Cursive Writing Wizard keeps things simple by requiring your child to trace letters, numbers, and shapes instead of having them perform the lessons freehand. When they properly complete the trace, the letter, number, or shape will burst with colors and animations that can be interacted with. You’re also able to create your own set of word lists and have your child trace them. The app includes upper and lowercase letters, three fonts to choose from, and multiple user support.

Cursive Writing Wizard – Trace Letters & Words is available for free today only (09/07). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 45 ratings.

This animated storybook is so colorful, no child will be able to resist it. Your child can enjoy the story all on their own or follow along with the professional narration.

Wonderputt ($0.99 → Free, 20.5 MB): Prepare to be blown away by this visually stunning sports game for iPad. You must putt your way through 18 challenging holes in a transforming world. This beautiful game is for golfers and general sports fans alike.

We had to share Wonderputt with you because our eyes shouldn’t be the only ones that get to see it. It’s one stunning putting course! All you have to do is tap and drag your finger away from the ball to set the power and angle of your shot, and then release to fire. Once you eventually sink the putt, your environment will unravel and reconstruct to create a new one. With enough practice you’ll be able to unlock the Wonder Mode, earn every last achievement, and climb the Game Center leaderboards.

Wonderputt is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 517 ratings.
