Today’s Apps Gone Free: Clock Hop, Shades, Instant Voice and More

App Bargain Bin
August 3, 2017

Time hops to avoid the clock hands, drop some shades, and translate any language into three others 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:

Clock Hop ($0.99 → Free, 89.8 MB): Timing is everything in Clock Hop. Casual gamers.

Clock Hop is the type of casual game that the whole family can enjoy. The object is to hop to stay on the clock for as long as possible. Your little frog is attached to the hour hand, and you must tap to leap over the minute hand every time it comes around. Sound easy? Well, this isn’t your everyday clock. The hands spin as they please, so expect the unexpected. Clock Hop includes hundreds of levels, an endless mode, and 10 frogs to unlock.

Clock Hop is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 91 ratings.

Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game ($1.99 → Free, 42.0 MB): Combine blocks to create and remove different shades in this unique puzzle game. Casual gamers who want a zen-like puzzle experience.

We love games like Shades. It’s simple on the surface, but rather difficult once you get going. The idea is to drag the falling blocks into position in order to create rows of the same color, which will remove them from the board. Things really get interesting when you stack blocks of the same color, as they will get darker in shade. This gameplay element creates some sticky situations, but also allows you to create cascading combos. Shades includes four color schemes to choose from.

Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 7599 ratings.

DRAW 3D JUNIOR :LEARN GEOMETRY & CREATE 3D MODELS ($2.99 → Free, 113.6 MB): Draw in a 3-D space with Draw 3D Junior. Children ages six through 12.

The app starts your child off by having them create simple geometry like triangles and squares. As they progress, the lessons will introduce them to more complex 3-D geometry like icosahedron and tetrahedron. Guided views provide more than 50 levels of Euclidean geometry, and dozens of step-by-step videos are available as well. Your child is also able to create models on their own and share them with the world.

DRAW 3D JUNIOR :LEARN GEOMETRY & CREATE 3D MODELS is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

One Tomato-Time management tool ($0.99 → Free, 78.5 MB): Get things done more efficiently with One Tomato. Those with a lot on their plate.

Pomodoro is a tried and true technique that helps you define clear goals and get them done faster by setting aside blocks of time. Access the tag drawer on the right side of the screen with a tap. You’re able to choose from 14 pre-built tags or create your own. Then choose your focus duration — the most common being 25 minutes — and get to work. When time is up, you’ll receive a short break. Repeat the process over and over until your tasks and your day is complete. The app includes a white noise option, 3D Touch support, and stats that can be shared.

One Tomato-Time management tool is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 48 ratings.

Instant Voice Translator Pro ($12.99 → Free, 16.4 MB): Translate any language into three others with Instant Voice Translator. Those who travel a lot or are learning a new language.

Instant Voice Translator is fast and efficient. First choose the language you want to translate from, and three other languages you want to translate to. You have more than 100 to choose from. Then either type or speak to translate. Instant Voice Translator keeps a running history of everything you’ve translated, which is searchable via Spotlight. The app also includes iMessage support, Apple Watch support, and the ability to share results.

Instant Voice Translator Pro is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 113 ratings.
