Today’s apps gone free: iColorama, Shares, Sleep Talk Recorder and more

October 14, 2014

Edit and enhance your photos with iColorama. We also have an app that allows traders to track their gains and losses, and a sleep recorder.

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:

Sleep Talk Recorder ($0.99 → Free, 31.1 MB): Record what you say in your sleep with Sleep Talk Recorder. It’s great for anyone that wants to find out what’s going on when the lights go out.

Not only is Sleep Talk Recorder practical, it’s also a lot of fun. All you have to do is place your iDevice less than three feet away from your bed with the microphone facing you. You’ll probably also want to plug it in so it doesn’t stop running in the middle of the night. Then press the big green bed button and fall fast asleep. The app utilizes an advanced filtering algorithm to identify sounds and immediately start recording, so you won’t just have one huge file that you have to listen to. You’re able to review your recordings, mark them as favorites, and even share your funniest moments with the Sleep Talk Recorder community.

Sleep Talk Recorder is available for free today only (10/14). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 29 ratings.

MiniatureCam – TiltShift Generator ($0.99 → Free, 24.3 MB): Make the world around you appear a little smaller with this photography app. MiniatureCam was designed for anyone interested in taking more than just standard photos with their iDevice’s camera.

Ease of use is important when it comes to camera apps, and MiniatureCam passes the test with flying colors. The app features two types of blur effects that allow you to simulate a shallow depth of field and make your subject appear miniature. You’re able to change the focal point of both effects by sliding them around the viewfinder. The blur intensity, contrast, brightness, and saturation can also be adjusted via a slider. The best part is, the miniature effect can be used in both camera and video recording modes.

MiniatureCam – TiltShift Generator is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 34 ratings.

ClipBook – BookMarker & Sentence Collector ($0.99 → Free, 30.8 MB): Manage your book collection and save quotes with this productivity app. It’s ideal for avid readers.

ClipBook makes it easy to capture and share memorable quotes from your favorite books. You’re able to catalog your book collection and define the amount of pages in each one. When you come across a memorable quote in a book, you can write it out or snap a photo of it and record the page it was on. Quotes can then quickly be recalled, shared, or stored within Evernote or Dropbox. The app also allows you to create a wish list.

ClipBook – BookMarker & Sentence Collector is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 50 ratings.

Shares 2 ($0.99 → Free, 1.8 MB): Get a better understanding of your stock portfolio with Shares. It’s for those that are new to owning stocks or just looking for a quick way to check their performance.

Shares makes it remarkably easy to track your gains and losses. To get started, enter all of the stocks in your portfolio by searching for their symbols, adding the amount of shares owned, and the price at which they were purchased. The app will then clearly display your daily performance, overall performance, and total value.

Shares 2 is available for free today only (10/14). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 50 ratings.

Universal:

TinyScan Pro – PDF scanner to scan multipage documents ($4.99 → Free, 13.9 MB): Turn your iDevice into a portable scanner with this business app. TinyScan Pro is for anyone that wants to scan receipts or important documents.

What makes TinyScan Pro great is its ability to detect page edges, so all you have to do is point and shoot. You’re then able to adjust the contrast, color, and page size of your scan. Each scan can be saved to the in-app library or sent off to Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, or Box. The app also allows you to passcode protect your scans.

TinyScan Pro – PDF scanner to scan multipage documents is available for free today only (10/14). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 3092 ratings.

iPad:

iColorama ($2.99 → Free, 183.4 MB): Edit and enhance your photos with all kinds of filters and effects with this photography app. It’s perfect for AppsGoneFree users that prefer to do their photo editing on their iPads.
