For those of you out there using iOS devices… wait, surely there’s someone out there, right? 😉 I want to tell you about the most helpful, most frugal free app on my iPad and iPhone.
Apps… Gone Free?
Apps Gone Free. If you’ve never heard of it, it is a free app for Apple mobile devices. Are you aware that there are gads of apps on the Apple Store? I figured you might be. Well, you’re probably aware that every so often, developers will offer apps free for a limited time. But how on earth are we frugal tech-lovers supposed to find out about them all?
Enter Apps Gone Free. The geniuses at Apps Gone Free scour the Apple Store daily for the highest-quality paid apps that happen to be free for a limited time and deliver them, via the free app, to your device seven days a week.
Do you love photo-editing apps? I found my favorites for free(!), with the app.
How about productivity apps?
Educational apps for children?
These are not cheapie, worthless apps, they are the real deal. None of these apps have ads, either.
Apps Gone Free recently added a new feature to the app, called AppBump. Do you know of a paid app that you would like to see go free? Then “bump” it using the app, and who knows, you might get lucky! I’ve never taken the time to bump an app, but I do think it is a worthwhile feature. The app is available in several different languages, as well.
My Name is Danielle and I’m A Free App Hoarder.
When you’re an avid fan of AGF, what inevitably happens is you end up with all these free apps that you “might” use one day, and downloaded because of the free price. Never fear! Remember, once you download an app from the App Store, it will be forever linked with your AppleID.
If you find yourself running out of space that you’d like to use elsewhere, go ahead and delete the apps you never use. You can always recover them from the Purchased Apps section of the App Store.
Alternately, this is what I do. I will go ahead and download any app that seems like it would be beneficial to have access to.
For example, I enjoy photo editing on my iPhone and iPad. So any photo-editing app that comes free through AGF, I download it. If I have no use for it at the time, I’ll delete it from my phone.
BUT! Suppose there comes a day when I am needing more photo apps than I have available on my device. I’ll head over to the App Store, and do a general search for that type of app.
So I would search for “photo” in the App Store. All photo apps pop up, and I will immediately see the ones that I have access to download all at once. (Rather than searching through all my purchased apps.) I can tell I have already purchased them and have access to them because the price button will instead say INSTALL.
Naturally, this will work with any type of app purchase. To-do lists, children’s educational apps, etc.
The moral of the story, friend, is this: go ahead and buy the app; you can delete it from your phone and will always have access to it. Except in case of zombie apocalypse… Then I fear we will have bigger fish to fry.
So what are you waiting for, you money-saver? Hop on over to the App Store and download your new favorite app.
What about you, have you ever heard of or used Apps Gone Free? Let me know in the comments!
