Today’s apps gone free: Death Rally, Magnetized, Pokerrrr and more

App Bargain Bin
May 20, 2015

Race to the death, solve physics-based puzzles, and play poker anytime, anywhere with today’s collection of apps and games.

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:

Fit Simply – Pedometer to Watch your Steps ($0.99 → Free, 4.5 MB): Track each step you take with this simple fitness app. Fit Simply is for anyone who needs a little extra motivation to stay in shape. It’s also great for Apple Watch owners since you can now track your progress on your wrist.

Fit Simply makes fitness fun. It allows you to compete with your friends via Game Center to see who can achieve the most steps over an entire week. Since it utilizes Apple’s M7 chip, it’s able to track your motion without draining your battery down to zero. This also means that Fit Simply only works on iPhone 5s or above. The achievements you earn for your dedication can be shared via Twitter, Facebook, or Messages.

Fit Simply – Pedometer to Watch your Steps is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 424 ratings.

Universal:

Magnetized ($2.99 → Free, 61.7 MB): An abstract and fully Magnetized physics puzzler. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a challenge. It’s tough as nails.

Your job is to guide a little black square safely through neon mazes via magnetized points on the screen. Touch and hold your finger on the screen to activate the nearest magnet and latch onto the square, and release at just the right moment to nab the white squares and make it to the other end of the maze. The game includes a total of 80 challenging levels, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Magnetized is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 223 ratings.

Pokerrrr – the poker dealer ($2.99 → Free, 70.9 MB): Play poker with your friends anytime, anywhere with Pokerrrr. It’s great for those times when you don’t have a deck of cards or poker chips lying around.

This is about as close to playing with real cards as you can get. The game plays a little differently depending upon what types of iDevices you have sitting around. If you only have iPhones, one will act as the host device. Everyone else will connect to it and will be able to see the community cards on their own screens along with the cards in their hand. Cards can be interacted with and peeked at with a swipe. If you have an iPad, it’s pretty much the same process except that the community cards will be shown only on the iPad and all other of the players will be able to utilize their iDevices as just their hand of cards. The game includes a handful of customization options as well.

Pokerrrr – the poker dealer is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 14 ratings.

Death Rally ($0.99 → Free, 110.2 MB): Humiliate and destroy your opponents in Death Rally. It’s ideal for fans of vehicular combat games like Carmageddon.

This electrifying racing is from Remedy Entertainment, the same team that brought you the likes of Max Payne and Alan Wake. Death Rally is a high octane thrill ride that includes gorgeous graphics, a single player career mode with loads of unlockable and upgradable vehicles, two camera angle options, a ridiculous amount of weapons to unleash upon your opponents, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. You can also take your skills online, allowing you to trade paint with your friends in fast-paced road wars.

Death Rally is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 17393 ratings.

Eureka: Quick Memo & To-Do List ($0.99 → Free, 21.2 MB): This simple productivity app puts your ideas and tasks into Notification Center. Eureka is perfect for anyone who needs quick access to their thoughts.

The great thing about Eureka is that it can be used by just about anyone. It doesn’t even have to replace your current go-to productivity app. You can use it in addition to it. Basically, whenever you have something you want to remember pop into your head, launch Eureka and record it. That idea or task will then be instantly transferred to Notification Center where you can always see it. Ideas and tasks within Notification Center can be marked off as complete and even moved to the top with a right to left swipe. That’s really all there is to it.

Eureka: Quick Memo & To-Do List is available for free today only (05/20). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 40 ratings.
