Today’s apps gone free: Things, Resume Mobile, Cows vs Aliens and more

November 20, 2014

Today’s the day you’re going to get things done thanks to our collection of AppsGoneFree apps. Things for iPhone and iPad will help you prioritize all of the tasks in your life while Resume Mobile will help you get a new job.

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:

Professional Metal Detector ($0.99 → Free, 5.4 MB): Turn your iDevice into a fully functional metal detector with this utility app. It’s for anyone who is on the hunt for metal objects.

Even though the app is intended for entertainment purposes, it actually works! It utilizes your iDevice’s built-in magnetometer to discover metal objects within your vicinity. Simply hold your iDevice up to an object and the numbers on the screen will climb if metal has been detected. You’re able to set different thresholds for the alarm to sound at, and you’re able to switch between two different themes.

Professional Metal Detector is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 77 ratings.

Things ($9.99 → Free, 16.0 MB): This award-winning productivity app will help you stay on top of all of your personal and business tasks. Things can be utilized by just about anyone who needs to get things done.

The problem with most task managers is that they’re either too simplistic and can’t be used for every purpose or too complicated and get in the way of your productivity. Things doesn’t have that problem thanks to its streamlined interface. You’re able to create as many tasks as necessary and dump them all into your inbox. If something is pressing, slide it over into your Today list to ensure it gets done. You’re even able to schedule tasks for a later date and tuck them away until the time comes. The app also includes the ability to tag tasks, prioritize them, add due dates, and have them recur. If you own the Mac version of Things or have it installed on another iDevice, you’re able to sync all of your tasks through the cloud for free!

Things is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 14195 ratings.

Universal:

Equalizer PRO – volume booster, great sound effects and visualizer for music fans ($2.99 → Free, 17.5 MB): Improve the sound of your favorite songs and albums with Equalizer Pro. It’s perfect for anyone who wants more control over the way their music sounds.

We really like Equalizer Pro because it’s so easy to get great results. If you like to fiddle around with your sound, you can manually adjust the equalizer bars. If you just want to hear your music in its best possible form, choose from the 23 professional effects. While your music is playing you can activate one of the 10 visualizers and watch as they react in real-time. The app also includes the ability to adjust the equalizer quality and output gain.

Equalizer PRO – volume booster, great sound effects and visualizer for music fans is available for free today only (11/20). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 102 ratings.

Cows vs Aliens ($0.99 → Free, 29.3 MB): Round up the cows while keeping the aliens out of the barn in this casual arcade game. It’s great for anyone who only has a few minutes of time to spare on gaming.

Cows vs Aliens has one neat gameplay mechanic. To get your cows into the barn, you have to give them a little push with your two thumbs. The only problem is that the aliens want your cows, and they will try to mix into the herd and make their way into the barn. You can not allow that to happen, so you must push them off the cliff. The game includes a variety of aliens to take on, and Game Center integration.

Cows vs Aliens is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 2619 ratings.

Resume Mobile – design & share professional PDF CV on the go ($2.99 → Free, 9.7 MB): Create eye-catching resumes right on your iDevice with this business app. It’s ideal for anyone in search of a new career.

Resume Mobile takes at least some of the stress out of your job search by guiding you through every step of the resume creation process. You’re able to import your LinkedIn data to save precious time, and then personalize your resume with different styles and images. Whatever data wasn’t filled in by your LinkedIn information can be completed in chronological order. Just fill in the blanks. Resumes can be converted into a PDF, JPG, or RTF, and then shared via email. You can also store them in Dropbox, Evernote, or Google Drive.

Resume Mobile – design & share professional PDF CV on the go is available for free today only (11/20). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 133 ratings.
