Free Apps for free apps...


One of the best ways to get use to the wide variety of possibilities of the iPad is to take advantage of free apps.

Here are a few free apps that alert you to when other, paid apps, are on sale. Once you "purchase" an app, free or paid, you get all future updates for free too. So, if you find a $4.99 app has gone free one day, download it, it's free, and you'll get all future updates for free too. Any app is worth a test run if it doesn't cost you anything...



Here are the ones I use on a daily basis:

AppsGoneFree - free daily newsletter of 8-10 apps gone free for a limited time...

App Price Drops by Apple Sliced - free app that tracks price reductions as well as apps gone free...

AppShopper - no longer an app, Apple removed it from the App Store (click here if you want to read the explanation), but the website is very useful for creating wish-lists of apps and being notified when apps go on sale...

Discovr Apps - It is currently $1.99 but I got it, via AppsGoneFree, when it was free, so keep an eye on it. It's another great app for keeping track of price drops. It also displays apps in a mind-map style, showing related or similar apps to all apps you search. A great way to, literally, discover new apps (hence the name)...
