App Bargain Bin
September 9, 2015

Save the kingdom from forces of darkness, stay on a budget, and send your kids off to space with grandpa 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:

PaceDJ: Music To Drive Your Running Pace ($0.99 → Free, 3.4 MB): Get a boost from your music with this fitness app. It’s ideal for runners who need a little extra motivation to go faster and longer.

Unlike similar apps, PaceDJ actually helps you find the right BPM before you get started by having you answer a few personal and fitness questions. It will then determine the correct BPM based on those parameters and find songs that are within range. Then hit the ground running and allow PaceDJ to not only play you matched music but also track your distance and speed. The app also includes the ability to correct BPM for songs by tapping and create interval workouts.

PaceDJ: Music To Drive Your Running Pace is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 142 ratings.

Spender – Personal Finance Manager ($0.99 → Free, 15.3 MB): Spender will help you stay on a budget by making it remarkably easy to record daily finances. It’s the ideal app for anyone who needs to pay close attention to where their money is going.

Spender is one of the fastest finance apps we’ve ever used. Upon launch you’re immediately brought to the expense and income recording screen. Just tap an icon at the top to categorize your entry and add a value. You can toggle between expense and income with a left to right swipe across the top of the screen. You’re also able to attach a note to your entry if need be. The app includes the ability to create custom categories and view a detailed breakdown of your entries.

Kingdom Rush ($0.99 → Free, 230.3 MB): Save the kingdom from the forces of darkness by erecting towers in Kingdom Rush. It’s for those who enjoy fixed-path tower defense games.

Kingdom Rush is pretty much perfect in every way. You’re able to place four basic towers along the path to defend your kingdom. Each tower works better against some units than others, so you must customize your strategy based on the approaching enemies. The game includes 45 enemy types, eight specialized tower upgrades, 18 tower abilities, boss battles, an in-game encyclopedia, the ability to command your ground forces, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Kingdom Rush is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 10806 ratings.

Letters from Nowhere (Full) ($2.99 → Free, 99.8 MB): Reveal the secret behind Audrey’s missing husband by searching for hidden objects in Letters from Nowhere. It’s ideal for adventure game fans who enjoy going on the hunt for clues.

Search through scenes for all of the objects on your list, and try to find the three stamps hidden within each to unlock the unlimited puzzle mode. The game includes a dramatic story told through comics, 11 episodes, 48 scenes, more than 1,000 objects to find, and achievements via Game Center.

Letters from Nowhere (Full) is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 52 ratings.

Universal:

Grandpa In Space ($2.99 → Free, 92.4 MB): Your little ones get to head to space with grandpa with this educational app. It’s designed for children ages five through eight.

Grandpa will guide them along the way, so you can just hand off your iDevice and let your child work. The app includes a total of 10 mini-games, 18 instructional videos, and loads of positive reinforcement.
