We all love free stuff right? Well, would you have ever guessed that free apps are also some of the largest grossing in the App Store? That's right. Due to what's being dubbed the "fremium" business model, such apps have been flourishing thanks to in-app purchases.
Got your attention? Of course we did--who doesn’t love great software, entertainment, and even hardware for the low, low price of free? That’s why we’re pointing you to the best Mac and iOS apps; the top sources for free music, videos, and other fun; and even the best ways to make phone calls without dropping a dime.
The time is now to plot out your plans for world domination. But before you go forth with lording over the 6 billion people that inhabit this earth, you'll need some practice so that you can come to expect the unexpected. We've rounded up a few apps that can help you take control of your own life--and the lives of others. Sure, you can't tap and touch the world into submission like you could in a game of Pocket God, but you can at least prepare by learning leadership and organization skills. Right?
Avast me Mac|Life maties! International Talk Like a Pirate Day be upon us, and SecureMac, makers of MacScan, be leaving the plunderin' up to anyone that wants some free software. Beware those that may enter, however, as this offer is only good for today.
We gotta start by saying this: thank you so much! And then, wahoo! Our iPad app, the Mac|Life Tablet Edition, today became the #1 Free iPad App in the App Store. We're thrilled that so many follks are checking it out, and the steady stream of emails from the in-app "email us" button is providing tons of useful commentary, feedback, and ideas. Much appreciated, and keep 'em coming!
It was inevitably going to happen, and now that your friends and neighbors are walking around looking to sink their rotting teeth into some braiiiiiins you have to get out of here. Wait, what are you reading this for? Run away!
(Actually, keep reading, otherwise you'll never know how to utilize all those Apple products you hoarded into your bag to help save your life.)
Hmmm…apparently Apple may have been listening to the cries of many who claimed that late August/early September was way too long for receiving a free iPhone 4 case. That could be a lot of dropped calls before then right? Well apparently Apple is shipping some already, with delivery dates as early as August 2nd.
As we mentioned earlier, Apple promised to make its free iPhone 4 case program available later this week -- and that time has arrived. In a unique twist, in order to claim your free iPhone 4 case, you first have to download an app to your device, which then lets you select the case of your choice.
Writers: we're a tortured bunch. And with our Macs and our iPhones and iPads in hand, we can do a lot of damage. Heck, there's a whole bunch of great writing apps out there designed specifically to help fuel our creative fires. They say that writing may be a dead trade, but these free apps definitely prove that writing is still alive--especially in our hearts.
All cheesiness aside, here are three great, totally free apps that'll help stimulate your mind, inspire you, and help you stay focused on that Sci-Fi novel you're writing in your basement. Remember, every writer needs a toolbox, and we just have ours stocked with Apple products.
With summer fast approaching, and a well-deserved three-day weekend just around the corner, we thought we'd equip you with a few free apps that help you learn more about the world above us--the stars. The galaxy is a place in a long, long time ago that's far, far away and though there's no epic John Williams music blasting through our brains when we're staring up above it, there's definitely plenty to learn about. And if you're not interested in the stars, then maybe you can use these apps as ideas to spark up conversations at future cocktail parties.
