Today’s apps gone free: PDF Expert 5, Toca Birthday Party, Momento and more
Starting a journal, let alone keeping one, can be quite the task. Sometimes it’s just difficult to frame your thoughts. That’s where Momento comes in. It allows you to create entries using your thoughts, activities, and photos, and then combines them with your social network feeds to create a complete journal. All of your entries are presented in a timeline view sorted by date, but you can tag entries, search text, and rate moments to filter out content. The app also includes Touch ID integration, allowing you to protect your personal thoughts with your fingerprint.
Momento (Diary/Journal) is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 4560 ratings.
Kayos is a non-stop adrenaline rush. You’re put in control of a ship, and you must guide it safely through a world with no boundaries or rules. Actually, there is one rule: don’t fly into anything! Hold your finger on the screen to boost your ship between the 3-D objects, and if you hold it long enough, a shield will be activated that will allow you to take a single hit. The game includes randomly generated levels, so no two will ever be the same.
Kayos is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 93 ratings.
