Today’s apps gone free: Sticky Notes HD, SkyWidgets, NOTE’d and more

December 8, 2014

Our collection of apps today focuses on information, whether that’s collecting it with Sticky Notes HD and NOTE’d or displaying it with SkyWidgets and Thyme.

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:

Thyme: A kitchen timer for your culinary arts ($1.99 → Free, 2.0 MB): Ensure you never overcook another meal again with this simple timer app. It’s perfect for home cooks with basic four-burner ranges.

Thyme stays out of your way, allowing you to efficiently whip up your best meals. The app’s simple interface displays four burners and one oven. Tap on whichever one you’re going to utilize on your range and spin the timer to set it. That’s it! You’re able to have all five timers going at once and receive push notifications as they expire.

Thyme: A kitchen timer for your culinary arts is available for free today only (12/08). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 83 ratings.

NOTE’d ($0.99 → Free, 12.3 MB): This digital notebook is not only easy to use, but also easy on the eyes. It’s the ideal app for those who need to categorize notes or thoughts.

We’ve always enjoyed NOTE’d, but its latest update makes it better than ever thanks to its completely new iOS 8-inspired design. Choose any one of the 17 fantastic notebook styles, and then add text notes, audio memos, location data, and images. Notebooks can be renamed, passcode locked, rearranged, and backed up and restored via Dropbox. The app also includes the ability to bookmark notes, view all of the notes from all of your notebooks at once, and share notes via Twitter, SMS, or email.

NOTE’d is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 673 ratings.

Universal:

Orbsorb ($0.99 → Free, 21.5 MB): Defend your Orbsorber from the incoming colored ORBs at all costs in this fast-paced action game. It’s for gamers who enjoy competing for high scores.

You’re in charge of the great and powerful Orbsorber, a neon marker in the middle of the screen with a smaller ORB circling it. The smaller ORB serves as a shield, and you must slide your finger around the joystick to block incoming ORBs that don’t match your marker. If you fail, your marker will be carved away bit by bit. Simply put, if you lose focus for only a brief moment your poor Orbsorber will take a beating, and you really, really don’t want that.

Orbsorb is available for free today only (12/08). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 422 ratings.

SkyWidgets | Location Information Widgets ($0.99 → Free, 725.4 KB): Get all kinds of location information from Notification Center with SkyWidgets. It’s the ideal app for those who like to populate their Notification Center with as much information as possible.

SkyWidgets puts a ridiculous amount of location information right at your fingertips. Before you do anything, launch SkyWidgets and select your preferred units of measurement. Then swipe down on Notification Center and scroll all of the way down to the bottom to add all three data categories. SkyWidgets will show you everything from your current address and barometric pressure to your heading and velocity right in Notification Center. All of the information is updated in real time.

SkyWidgets | Location Information Widgets is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 6 ratings.

Sticky Notes HD ($0.99 → Free, 1.2 MB): Keep track of all of your important ideas and events with this colorful productivity app. It’s great for remembering everything that matters to you.

Sticky Notes HD can be used for just about anything. It allows you to create an unlimited number of sticky notes. Each note can include a title, endless amounts of content, priority level, and alarm. You’re also able to highlight them with one of 20 colors. All of the notes on the main screen can be sorted alphabetically or by priority level, and you can even choose to hide specific colors. The app also includes the ability to adjust the size of your notes, iCloud support, the ability to snap a screenshot, and an optional widget in Notification Center.

Sticky Notes HD is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 674 ratings.

Stress Baal ($0.99 → Free, 38.3 MB): Alleviate stress by taking it out on a little red devil in Stress Baal. We all have a little stress in our lives, so this app is basically for anyone looking to get rid of it without any repercussions.

Baal is a little red devil with a ton of personality and a high tolerance for pain, which is why we enjoy beating him up so very much. The animated, hand-drawn Baal will dance around, shape shift, and do whatever else he wants if left alone, and that’s where you come in. Baal needs to be roughed up because he totally deserves it! You’re able to interact with Baal in a wide variety of ways. Your imagination is the only thing holding you back from seeing the thousands upon thousands of hilarious and wacky animations.

Stress Baal is available for free today only (12/08). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 197 ratings.
