App Bargain Bin
December 15, 2015

Run to the beat, stay fit, and putt your way through a transforming world 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:

Tabata! Daily 4-Minute Workouts ($1.99 → Free, 13.0 MB): All it takes is four minutes a day to stay fit with this fitness app. It’s ideal for those who want to shed a few pounds without committing a lot of time to it.

Tabata! doesn’t take itself too seriously, but you will get a serious workout. You’re provided with a different set of exercises each day. Your chosen exercises are laid out in list form, and you can review them to ensure you know how to properly perform them before staring the workout. Then follow along with the instructor as you perform each exercise for 20 seconds with 10 second breaks. None of the exercises require equipment, so you can perform them anytime, anywhere. The app also includes the ability to adjust the amount of sets for exercises, and all kinds of achievements to earn.

Tabata! Daily 4-Minute Workouts is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 120 ratings.

Remote Mouse ($1.99 → Free, 11.0 MB): Transform your iPhone into a remote control for your computer with Remote Mouse. It’s ideal for presentations, controlling video playback, and so much more.

You must first download the free companion software from the developer’s website and install it on your Mac or PC. Launch Remote Mouse on your iPhone and tap the start button to instantly connect. You can then use it as you would a normal trackpad! Remote Mouse also includes a full keyboard, an application launcher and switcher, password protection, and loads of customization options. Additional remote options are available via in-app purchase.

Remote Mouse is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 2303 ratings.

Universal:

DUO! Pairs & Brain Fitness Game ($1.99 → Free, 28.5 MB): Stimulate your brain with DUO! It’s for those who enjoy memory games.

DUO! is unlike any memory game you’ve ever played. Sure, you’re still required to tap on cards to flip them over, memorize their positions, and match pairs, but that’s where the similarities end. Each level offers a new and exciting challenge, where you must achieve specific goals, utilize wild cards, follow cards as they are shuffled, and much more. You’re awarded bonus points for creating matches consecutively, which will help you achieve a perfect rating and unlock new levels.

DUO! Pairs & Brain Fitness Game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 27 ratings.

PowerAid – Power failure alarm ($0.99 → Free, 1.1 MB): Be alerted when the power goes out with PowerAid. It’s for homeowners or renters who frequently deal with power outages.

PowerAid is not only unique, but also a lifesaver. This handy little app monitors the flow of power to your iDevice. If it ever goes out, an extremely loud alarm will notify you so you can remedy the issue. The app can also be used as an anti-theft mechanism since it can detect when the USB cable has been unplugged.

PowerAid – Power failure alarm is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 11 ratings.

BIT.TRIP RUN! ($3.99 → Free, 314.0 MB): A highly polished and highly rated rhythm platformer. It’s for gamers who enjoyed any of Gaijin’s previous games like Bit.Trip Beat and Bit.Trip Runner.

Games on iOS don’t get any more premium than this. Your job is to jump, slide, kick, and spring through three eye-popping words filled with 30 regular levels. Once you’ve mastered the controls, go ahead and try the 12 challenge and 15 retro levels. And, unlike most mobile games, you’ll want to pay attention to the storyline because it’s filled with hilarious dialogue and top-notch animations.

BIT.TRIP RUN! is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 532 ratings.

iPad:

Tabata! HD: 4 Minute Workout Challenge. Burn calories faster than ever! ($0.99 → Free, 20.8 MB): All it takes is four minutes a day to stay fit with this fitness app. It’s ideal for those who want to shed a few pounds without committing a lot of time to it.

Wonderputt ($0.99 → Free, 17.5 MB): Prepare to be blown away by this visually stunning sports game for iPad. You must putt your way through 18 challenging holes in a transforming world. This beautiful game is for golfers and general sports fans alike.

We had to share Wonderputt with you because our eyes shouldn’t be the only ones that get to see it. It’s one stunning putting course! All you have to do is tap and drag your finger away from the ball to set the power and angle of your shot, and then release to fire. Once you eventually sink the putt, your environment will unravel and reconstruct to create a new one. With enough practice you’ll be able to unlock the Wonder Mode, earn every last achievement, and climb the Game Center leaderboards.

Wonderputt is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 115 ratings.
