Today’s Apps Gone Free: Lander Hero, Spark Camera, Weblock and More

July 16, 2016

Safely pilot a lunar lander from one pad to another, create amazing movies in seconds, and block ads and other annoying content 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.

Universal:

Devil Shard ($0.99 → Free, 22.8 MB): Stop a war caused by an evil emperor in Devil Shard. This retro-inspired RPG is great for those who enjoy match-three puzzles.

The evil emperor has started a war no one ever wanted. Play as the hero and put a stop to it before it’s too late. The game combines the now standard match-three mechanic to allow you to build up your defenses, restore health, and attack your enemies. You’re able to swap tiles on the screen by tapping one and then tapping on an adjacent tile. You don’t have to always create matches when swapping tiles, which will come in handy to help you avoid creating matches for your enemy. The game includes eight stages, 37 enemies to battle, nine incarnations to summon, 32 types of equipment to unlock, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Devil Shard is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 325 ratings.

Lander Hero: Arcade Lunar Landing Exploration Games in Deep Space ($1.99 → Free, 125.9 MB): Safely pilot a lunar lander from one pad to another in Lander Hero. Fans of casual games will really enjoy this one.

Utilize on-screen buttons to propel the lunar lander through space and around obstacles. Try to collect all of the stars in each level before landing to earn a perfect score. Keep an eye on your shield and fuel levels, because you don’t want to find out what it’s like to be without either. The game includes three planets, 50 levels, two modes, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Lander Hero: Arcade Lunar Landing Exploration Games in Deep Space is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 55 ratings.

Weblock – AdBlock for apps and websites ($1.99 → Free, 13.8 MB): Block ads and other annoying content in your apps and on the web with this utility app. It’s the most customizable ad blocker.

Weblock works with any Wi-Fi enabled iDevice. The app will generate a unique configuration link within the Setup menu. Then launch your Settings app, choose the network you’re on, and set your HTTP proxy to “Auto.” A new URL field will appear, where you can paste your unique link. Then make sure to kill all of your active processes, and none of your apps will show text ads, banners, or pop-ups ever again. It even works with YouTube and Pandora! The app also includes the ability to create your own rules and filters, and iCloud support.

Weblock – AdBlock for apps and websites is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 1540 ratings.

Spark Camera – capture, edit and share beautiful videos ($1.99 → Free, 19.3 MB): Create amazing movies in seconds with Spark Camera. It’s for anyone who wants to enhance their videos.

Spark Camera is remarkably easy to use for a video editor. You’re able to record clips by holding your finger on the screen and releasing to stop. Go ahead and capture as many clips as you want. Once you’re finished recording, Spark allows you to add filters, add music, trim and rearrange clips, and even import videos from your camera roll. Your creations can be shared via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Messages, or AirDrop.

Spark Camera – capture, edit and share beautiful videos is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 1660 ratings.

The app includes support for thousands of undos and redos, stylus support, custom color palettes, video recording, and the ability to use as many layers as your iPad will allow.
