November 17, 2014

Record your thoughts and ideas with today’s AppsGoneFree collection. Momento will help you start and stick to journaling. Imagination Box will allow you to create anything. Pocket Lists will allow you to get your holiday shopping list going.

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:

Momento (Diary/Journal) ($2.99 → Free, 9.4 MB): A journaling app that can tap into your social networks to create a complete timeline of your life. Momento is perfect for anyone who struggles to find the time to keep a journal.

Starting a journal, let alone keeping one, can be quite the task. Sometimes it’s just difficult to frame your thoughts. That’s where Momento comes in. It allows you to create entries using your thoughts, activities, and photos, and then combines them with your social network feeds to create a complete journal. All of your entries are presented in a timeline view sorted by date, but you can tag entries, search text, and rate moments to filter out content. The app also includes Touch ID integration, allowing you to protect your personal thoughts with your fingerprint.

Momento (Diary/Journal) is available for free today only (11/17). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 4390 ratings.

Universal:

Alarm Clock Radio – Music Player ($1.99 → Free, 15.4 MB): Turn your iDevice into a clock radio with Alarm Clock Radio. It’s ideal for anyone who plugs their iDevice in near their bed.

Alarm Clock Radio is all about clean design and simplicity. It features a single clock face that clearly displays the time and radio station. It also looks great in both portrait and landscape orientations. You’re able to select from more than 25,000 stations including oldies, classical, R&B, blues, and even police scanners. The radio stations can be played at night and include a sleep timer, and you can wake up to them by setting them as your alarm clock.

Alarm Clock Radio – Music Player is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3-star rating with a total of 3256 ratings.

Pocket Lists: To-do List + Checklist + Reminders ($3.99 → Free, 20.8 MB): A powerful task manager that will have no problem replacing the stock Reminders app on your iDevice. It’s ideal for anyone who is ready to start creating holiday shopping lists.

Pocket Lists isn’t your everyday task manager. Sure, it includes everything you’d expect from one, like the ability to attach priority levels to tasks, due dates, notes, unique icons, and location-based notifications. What makes its special, however, are its power-user features like the ability to understand due dates and priority levels from inputted text, built-in OCR, calendar syncing, and list collaboration.

Pocket Lists: To-do List + Checklist + Reminders is available for free today only (11/17). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 507 ratings.

Translate Photo – Camera Scanner, PDF, OCR Document Grabber & Translator ($4.99 → Free, 22.1 MB): Recognize and extract text from a variety of sources with Translate Photo. This app is great for anyone who finds themselves in need of converting images into editable text.

Translate Photo is one of the speediest and most accurate OCR apps we’ve tried. Point your camera at a paper document, recipe card, note, book page, or what have you and capture it. You can crop your photo down and enhance it to ensure that you get the best possible results. Then select a language and watch Translate Photo perform its magic. The extracted text can be edited, copied, saved, and shared.

Translate Photo – Camera Scanner, PDF, OCR Document Grabber & Translator is available for free today only (11/17). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 108 ratings.

iPad:

Imagination Box – creative fun with play dough colors, shapes, numbers and letters ($2.99 → Free, 57.6 MB): Crack open the Imagination Box and draw, color, and sculpt to create anything you want. It’s great for any parent that wants to unleash their child’s creative side.

The best thing about Imagination Box is that it’s entirely open-ended. Your child can pick from 12 background styles and colors, or they can import a photo from your iPad’s library. Imagination Box includes a whopping 62 different pieces of play dough, including shapes, numbers, and letters, to place anywhere on the canvas. Each piece can be rotated, resized, flipped, and colored. It’s not just about play dough though, as your child can draw anything they want on the canvas using 10 colorful markers.

Imagination Box – creative fun with play dough colors, shapes, numbers and letters is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 12 ratings.
