Today’s apps gone free: Quick Drafts, Mooncast, Pocket Scale and more

November 4, 2014

Take notes at the speed of your thoughts with Quick Drafts. We also have an app for viewing phases of the moon, and an app that helps you keep tabs on your weight.

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:

Pocket Scale – Quick Weight Tracker ($0.99 → Free, 2.1 MB): Quickly and easily track your weight with Pocket Scale. It’s the perfect app for anyone who is trying to lose a little weight.

Health apps are generally daunting, but not Pocket Scale. All you have to do is tap the big circle in the middle of the screen, and then slide your finger across the scale at the bottom to record your weight. The app will then calculate your BMI, total weight lost or gained, and keep a log. You’re also able to set daily reminders so you never forget to record your weight. The app syncs with Apple’s new Health app as well.

Pocket Scale – Quick Weight Tracker is available for free today only (11/04). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.

Quick Drafts – Notes, Errands and Shopping List ($2.99 → Free, 8.3 MB): A note taking app that can keep up with the speed of your thoughts. It’s for those who need a note taking app that can do just about anything.

Quick Drafts isn’t just fast, it’s also extremely useful. Every time you open it you’ll be presented with a blank page, allowing you to generate notes in an instant. But you don’t have to just record simple notes, as you’re able to convert them into to-do lists and events that can be shared or saved to the cloud. The app also includes the ability to create tappable links and landscape orientation support.

Quick Drafts – Notes, Errands and Shopping List is available for free today only (11/04). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 569 ratings.

Cart Cow ($0.99 → Free, 12.0 MB): Help Lazy Linda the cow get from one end of the level to the other by drawing bridges for her to roll across in this physics-based puzzle game. It’s for gamers who are looking for a challenge.

Cart Cow may seem simple on the surface, but it’s actually quite difficult. Lazy Linda isn’t fond of walking, so instead she rolls around in a shopping cart. You must draw bridges for her to roll across and get by obstacles to reach the end of each level. The only problem is that you’re supplied with a limited amount of pen ink, so you must draw flawless paths. Keep in mind that Lazy Linda doesn’t have to reach the end of each level while in her cart, necessarily; she just has to get there! The game includes 60 puzzling levels.

Cart Cow is available for free today only (11/04). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 9 ratings.

Universal:

Mooncast – The Phases of the Moon ($0.99 → Free, 20.8 MB): A simple but beautiful app that shows you the current phases of the moon and how long until the next full moon. It’s for anyone who enjoys looking up into the sky.

Mooncast does only a few things, but it does them all well. You can swipe through each screen to see the moon illumination for that day, or you can jump to a specific day by activating the calendar view and spinning the wheels. Mooncast can remind you when a full moon is approaching, and even display phases of the moon within Notification Center.

Mooncast – The Phases of the Moon is available for free today only (11/04). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 130 ratings.

Secure Filebox ($1.99 → Free, 10.6 MB): Store almost anything behind a wall of encryption with this productivity app. Secure Filebox is ideal for anyone who wants to keep what’s important to them away from prying eyes.

No matter what it is, Secure Filebox can keep your digital content safe and secure. You’re able to store and organize notes, photos, videos, audio files, location data, and documents. Files can be imported from your computer via Wi-Fi or pulled from your inbox. You’re also able to capture photos, videos, and audio right from within the app, and even scan documents and export them as PDFs. The app includes 256-bit encryption, passcode or password protection, and iCloud support.

Secure Filebox is available for free today only (11/04). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 211 ratings.

Lab Values Reference ($2.99 → Free, 4.0 MB): Whether you’re a student or clinician, Lab Values Reference will help you get the job done. It’s for anyone who needs to reference lab values on a daily basis.
