Browsing or searching the App Store for free apps can be a time-consuming process. Apps Gone Free can save you time in your quest for free iPad and iPhone apps. Apps Gone Free is a free iPad/iPhone app that serves up a new list of free apps every day. The apps featured on Apps Gone Free are apps that normally require a purchase but have been made available for free download for a limited time.
Apps Gone Free recently added a new “app bump” option that allows you to recommend paid apps to others. An app that receives enough “bumps” could be made free too. Learn more in the video below.
So what are the implications for Education. If you are currently trying out iPads with the possibility of going 1:1 (A Trolley with 1 iPad for each pupil in the class) then one of the concerns is the cost of locating and buying apps for 20+ users. Even with volume pricing the costs add up quickly. Monitoring a service like Apps Gone Free could be a good way for schools to find good, educational apps at no cost.
This is what the Site says about the new service.
Find great apps without spending a cent! Get high quality paid apps for free each day. Unlike other apps, we offer no paid listings – these are expert-picked top-ranked apps, for FREE!
Every day hundreds of apps reduce their price to free for a limited time to try to stimulate excitement. AppsGoneFree finds ONLY the apps worth owning:
