Today’s apps gone free: Use Your Handwriting, Handy Photo, Elliptic Keyboard and more

App Bargain Bin
February 1, 2015

In today’s issue of AppsGoneFree we’re focused on recording your thoughts, whether that’s by hand, by keyboard, or within a digital notebook.

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:

JukeBox HD Mini ($1.99 → Free, 20.6 MB): Your music will come alive with this digital jukebox. It’s for fans of anything retro.

JukeBox HD Mini is a visual treat for fans of the ‘40s and ‘50s. It allows you to spin your favorite records on a digital jukebox inspired by the legendary Wurlitzer jukeboxes. You’re able to watch the record spin complete with album art, view all of the song and album details, and bathe in the glow of neon flashing lights.

JukeBox HD Mini is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 27 ratings.

Elliptic Keyboard ($0.99 → Free, 29.8 MB): Reach all of the keys on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus keyboard with Elliptic Keyboard. It’s for anyone who prefers typing with one hand.

Most custom keyboards are simply eye candy or loaded with gimmicks. Not Elliptic Keyboard. Instead, it actually tries to solve a problem: One handed typing. It’s quite difficult to do on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus due to their widths. Elliptic Keyboard makes it easier by bending and pushing the rows of keys closer to one side of the screen. Lefties can tap the hand icon to flip the keyboard around. You’re also able to swipe across the keyboard to create a space and delete characters.

Elliptic Keyboard is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 22 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 today only (02/01). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 691 ratings.

Universal:

Use Your Handwriting GOLD ($9.99 → Free, 23.8 MB): Use your own handwriting to jot down notes, take messages, and create task lists with this business app. It’s for anyone who is tired of typing everything out.

You have beautiful handwriting, so why not use it more often? Use Your Handwriting allows you to do just that. Tap the add button in the top right corner of the screen to jump right into the creation process. Then choose a color and start writing on the screen. When you’re finished, tap the done button to return to your list. All entries can be reordered, edited, shared, and categorized at any time. The app also includes a variety of customization options, icon badging, and the ability to set priority levels.

Use Your Handwriting GOLD is available for free today only (02/01). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 3462 ratings.

Heat Sense ($0.99 → Free, 1.6 MB): Brighten up your day with this art creation app. It’s ideal for those who enjoy doodling.

Heat Sense mimics the heat produced by your finger, allowing you to create glowing works of art. The app includes more than 25 color palettes to choose from, 66 preset images, and different 66 stamps. You’re also able to apply a variety of additional effects and customize the decay rate, finger size, and finger temperature.

Heat Sense is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 156 ratings.

Handy Photo ($2.99 → Free, 67.6 MB): You’ll find this feature-rich photo editor to be super handy. It’s a great addition to any iPhoneographer’s collection.

Standout features include the ability to remove unwanted content from your photo with a tap, the ability to apply professional quality filters to only parts of your photo, loads of high quality textures and frames, and advanced retouching. Basically, grab one of your favorite photos and just start digging around.
