4 cert, iMe­di­aApp, iOS It’s a bit of a catch 22: you want to dis­cover some great apps but you don’t want to pay for soft­ware that turns out to be more than a bit rub­bish. So what can you do? Try Ap­pGratis. The app gives one nor­mally paid-for app away free for a day, for both iPhone and iPad, and of­fers you dis­counts on oth­ers. The choice ranges from games to photo edit­ing apps and more. Some of the apps that have been made free in­clude in­stant mes­sage soft­ware What­sApp and photo ed­i­tor Snapseed. It’s a great way to dis­cover apps that might not nec­es­sar­ily make it on to ap­ple’s fea­tured charts. Some of the more use­ful ones in­clude edi­tors for photo text or an app that saves a cache of a video so you can watch it off­line later. The apps that are uni­ver­sal (that work on both iPad and iPhone) are marked with the plus sign, so on cer­tain days you can get two free apps for your iPhone. Dis­counts on other apps are of­fered with up to 90 per cent off the reg­u­lar price. Each deal – both free­bies and dis­counts – lasts only 24 hours, so you have to be quick off the mark.
