Universal:

Instantbot ($1.99 → Free, 28.5 MB): Improve your Instagram experience with Instantbot. It’s for those who want to do more with Instagram.

Before you do anything, you’ll want to log in to your Instagram account. This will allow you to not only upload new photos, but also tap into your personal profile and see what everyone else is up to. Instantbot includes a multifunctional camera, allowing you to shoot in multiple modes, apply filters and textures, create framed collages, and slap on some stickers. It also allows you to view popular images from the community, follow and unfollow users, comment on photos, like photos, save photos, tweet or post links to photos on Facebook, and view photos from users nearby on a map.

Instantbot is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 134 ratings.

JotNot Scanner | scan PDFs from documents, receipts, faxes, expenses, and whiteboards ($4.99 → Free, 15.3 MB): Scan physical documents and save them in digital form with JotNot. It’s for anyone who doesn’t want to be tied to their desk.

JotNot is one of the most advanced scanner apps in the entire App Store. Not only is it able to automatically detect the edges of your documents, it also processes the final image to remove shadows, correct contrast, and adjust the white balance. This way your scans come out crisp and clear every time. Scans can be saved as PDFs or JPEGs, and you can share them in a wide variety of ways or upload them to your favorite cloud service. The app also includes password protection, the ability to rename and organize scans, and the ability to tag scans.

JotNot Scanner | scan PDFs from documents, receipts, faxes, expenses, and whiteboards is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 7523 ratings.

Gro Flowers ($2.99 → Free, 43.3 MB): Become a gardener and create amazing flower species with Gro Flower. It’s for any parent who wants to teach their child about biodiversity.

Your child starts off by designing their very own flowers. They must simply choose a color and start drawing on any petal. The pattern will be repeated on all of the other petals with a kaleidoscope effect. Then guide the bees, butterflies, and other creatures to pollinate the flowers. Their colorful creations will spread across the field. The app includes more than 70 colors and 50 brushes to choose from.

Gro Flowers is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.

Sleep Furiously ($2.99 → Free, 24.3 MB): Create complete sentences from a grid of jumbled words with Sleep Furiously. It’s an absolute blast for fans of word games.

Sleep Furiously is absurd fun. The idea is to create grammatically correct sentences using the grid of words in front of you. Simply drag your finger over adjacent words to connect them and create a sentence. The best part is, it can be completely nonsensical. The longer the sentence, the more points you’ll score. The game includes three different modes to enjoy.

Sleep Furiously is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 30 ratings.
