How to Get Apps for Free (Legally)

I know that you've all been very good this year and so as to help Santa out and give you all a little gift, here are a few apps that you can download to determine which (other) iPhone apps have been made free for (typically) a short period of time. These include (and in the order I find most useful):

In addition to apps, there are a few sites online that record some of the same information. These include:

The only downside is that there isn't really a single source that will record all temporarily free apps so you would need to check them all if you want to make sure you don't miss anything. That's a lot of work to save somewhere between $1 and $10 typically so I'd recommend tracking which one provides you with the best links and just track that one.

And a heads up on an app that is free (rather than one that identifies free apps) and has just been ported to the iPhone. The app is the beautiful Flipboard. This app was named Apple's iPad App of the Year and the new port to the iPhone shows why. Flipboard lets you generate a custom newspaper that is filled with articles of interest to you as well as your social networks. The app is almost worth having for the GUI itself.Awesome for free.

Sorry for all of the brackets ((((())))((((())))))(((((())))))
