October 2, 2014

Roll the dice and see what matches you can come up with in Dizy. We also have a handy barcode scanner, and an app that will fragment your photos.

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:

Bext Mail ($49.99 → Free, 6.6 MB): Bext Mail will help you finally get that unruly inbox under control. The app is ideal for AppsGoneFree users that deal with a lot of email on a day-to-day basis.

Everything about Bext Mail will make your life easier. To start off with, Bext Mail allows you to configure your email in seconds. You just need to enter your email address and password, and the app will automatically discover your account. No more dealing with ports and server names. Your inbox is also automatically filtered to show emails that were sent to you and to you only and those sent to others. You can also smartly tag emails for quick discovery.

Bext Mail is available for free today only (10/02). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 10 ratings.

Barcode ($0.99 → Free, 3.7 MB): The ultimate barcode scanner for your iDevice. Everyone should have this handy utility app installed in case you come across a scannable barcode.

Barcode can scan almost any type of code, including QR, Data Matrix, EAN-8, EAN-13, UPC-E, UPC-A, ISBN-10, ISBN-13, I-25, CODE39, and CODE128. Barcode will provide you with actions depending on the contents of the barcode. For example, if you scan a product barcode, the app will provide you with a link to Amazon to buy the product or compare prices.

Barcode is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

Dizy ($0.99 → Free, 21.7 MB): When you combine tile matching with Yahtzee, you get Dizy! Thanks to its familiar gameplay elements, Dizy is perfect for all casual gamers.

We love Dizy because it’s easy to learn, but difficult to master. The game board is made up of a five-by-five grid of randomly placed dice. At the bottom of the screen is a bucket of dice that you get to place to create combinations. Playable combinations are based on the game of Yahtzee, like three-of-a-kind, small straight, and full house. You’re also able to place dice anywhere on the board, even if they don’t create a match. The object of the game is to create huge combos, including cross combos, to earn the highest score.

Dizy is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

Universal:

LensFlare ($1.99 → Free, 59.8 MB): Bring some life to your photos by adding realistic lens flares with this stunning effects app. It’s for fans of J.J. Abrams’ work. We kid, we kid! It’s for those that like to fiddle with photography effects.

The effects in LensFlare are so realistic, your audience won’t even know they were added after the fact. You’re able to choose from more than 55 types of lens flares, all of which can be repositioned with true-to-life results. Flares can also be layered on top of each other to create something totally unique. But a good effects app isn’t any good without photo editing options, but don’t worry, LensFlare has you covered with the ability to adjust brightness, tint, and aspect ratio.

LensFlare is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 283 ratings.

Fragment ($1.99 → Free, 60.9 MB): Fragment your photos to transform them into stunning works of art with this effects app. This photography app is for aspiring artists.

You’ve never seen a photography app quite like Fragment before. The ability to quickly transform your photos into prism-like glass pieces is something to behold. The best part is, it’s all done in real time. Just choose a photo, swipe across the bottom to select an effect, and then swipe across the canvas to manipulate it. There’s no wrong way to use Fragment. Let your creative side shine. The app includes a ton of effects, photo editing options, and the ability to share your creations via your favorite social media networks.
