Today’s apps gone free: Jungle Rumble, Rails, Convertizo and more

App Bargain Bin
January 29, 2016

Tap to the beat of the drums, don your conductor hat, and convert units in a snap 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:

Star Scales Pro For Guitar ($9.99 → Free, 27.1 MB): Learn to play guitar like a star with this music app. It’s ideal for amateur musicians who want to acquire proficiency and confidence when playing guitar.

Learning how to play guitar doesn’t have to be difficult, at least not with Star Scales Pro. The app throws out the idea of using complicated charts and instead has you practicing scale patterns. Each scale features fingering and note names in all positions on the fretboard, making it remarkably easy to master a specific pattern. Since each scale and all its patterns are taught one at a time, you won’t become overwhelmed. The app includes all blues, rock, and jazz guitar scales, zoom, a random scale pattern generator, and the ability to share scales via email or social networks.

Star Scales Pro For Guitar is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 178 ratings.

Universal:

SORUS SHIELD FREE ($3.99 → Free, 28.6 MB): Fill in lines in order to remove them in Sorus Shield. It’s like Tetris, but upside down.

Today only: Unlock all 101 missions and five arcade levels Sorus Shield has to offer free of charge! Head to the shop at the bottom of the main screen and tap on “Buy All Arcade Levels” and “Buy All Missions.” Confirm your freebies with a tap and enjoy.

Aliens are trying to take control of the universe with special light mines. Only the spaceship Sorus can stop them thanks to its unique shield. It’s your job to dissolve the mines by creating complete lines. You’re able to tap to rotate the encapsulated mines, and swipe to move them along the lines. When you want to lock them in place, swipe up. Completed lines will remove all of the mines within and leave the others to come crashing down into place, allowing you to create cascading combos.

SORUS SHIELD FREE is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 18 ratings.

Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness, and Bananas ($3.99 → Free, 70.7 MB): Tap the screen to the beat in Jungle Rumble. It’s a ton of fun for fans of rhythm games.

A rival tribe is stealing all of your bananas. It’s up to you to tap on the screen in order to fight off the red monkeys and reclaim what’s yours. You’ll have to pay close attention to how the invaders move and learn their behaviors in order to complete each level. The game includes a fairly quick yet informative tutorial to ensure you get the hang of the rhythm mechanic. You’ll be tapping to the beat in no time.

Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness, and Bananas is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 84 ratings.

Convertizo 3 – Convert Units and Currency in Style ($3.99 → Free, 4.3 MB): Convert in style with Convertizo. It’s for anyone who needs to make quick conversions.

Who says conversion apps need to be ugly and dull? Convertizo breaks the mold by offering an icon-based interface that’s not only easy on the eyes but also easy to use. All of its conversion categories are laid out on a single screen. Just tap on the one you want, choose your two units, and enter a value. Units can be flipped with a tap, and you’re able to jump to the next category via a button in the lower right corner of the screen. The app also includes 10 themes to choose from, and live currency updates.

Convertizo 3 – Convert Units and Currency in Style is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 13 ratings.

iPad:

Rails ($2.99 → Free, 80.8 MB): The official remake of the 90s sensation, Shortline Railroad. Take a trip down memory lane.

You’re tasked with completing tracks and guiding trains into their matching stations, all while keeping them from crashing into each other. You’re able to control the signals to stop them in their tracks and flip the switches to lead them in different directions. Not all of the trains operate in the same way, however, so you’ll have to stay on your toes. The game includes 60 levels, 12 train types, iCloud support, and leaderboards and achievements via Game Center.

Rails is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 346 ratings.
