App Bargain Bin
May 2, 2015

Stay on top of all of your important events and tasks, turn your thoughts into reminders, and make the world around you appear a little smaller with today’s collection of apps.

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:

Daphne ($0.99 → Free, 1002.0 KB): This productivity app offers a quick way to turn your thoughts into reminders. It’s ideal for those who want to set it and forget it.

Daphne does away with finicky date selection screens and complicated settings. All you have to do to set a reminder is type or say what you want and when you want to remember it. Then just wait for the push notification. This allows you to use Daphne for more than daily reminders, as it can also act as a simple timer system. All of your reminders will be categorized automatically by date and time.

Daphne is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.

MiniatureCam – TiltShift Generator ($0.99 → Free, 24.3 MB): Make the world around you appear a little smaller with this photography app. MiniatureCam was designed for anyone interested in taking more than just standard photos with their iDevice’s camera.

Ease of use is important when it comes to camera apps, and MiniatureCam passes the test with flying colors. The app features two types of blur effects that allow you to simulate a shallow depth of field and make your subject appear miniature. You’re able to change the focal point of both effects by sliding them around the viewfinder. The blur intensity, contrast, brightness, and saturation can also be adjusted via a slider. The best part is, the miniature effect can be used in both camera and video recording modes.

MiniatureCam – TiltShift Generator is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 167 ratings.

OnTop: Calendar & Reminders ($1.99 → Free, 7.9 MB): You’ll never miss another important event or task again with OnTop. It’s ideal for anyone with a busy schedule.

OnTop simplifies your schedule by breaking it down into two-week chunks. At the top of the screen is the calendar view, and at the bottom is a list of everything you need to accomplish in the next two weeks including your tasks. You’re able to swipe through the list of tasks and the calendar will automatically follow along. OnTop also allows you to import all of your already created events and tasks from Apple’s native apps, and you can add new events and tasks using natural language.

OnTop: Calendar & Reminders is available for free today only (05/02). It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 16 ratings.

Universal:

Sleep Better: Relaxing Waves ($0.99 → Free, 1.9 MB): Listen to relaxing waves to calm your mind with Sleep Better. It’s great for anyone who has trouble blocking out the world.

You can never have enough white noise apps, and Sleep Better is yet another solid addition to your collection. Sleep Better provides you with a simple and streamlined interface. It offers four different wave options, three of which vary in speed. Tap on the one you want and slide your finger across the bottom of the screen to set the sleep timer. That’s it. That’s all you have to do to lull yourself into a relaxed state of mind.

Sleep Better: Relaxing Waves is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 13 ratings.
