Found a free iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch app that you really enjoy?  Or there's a sale on one that's not normally free?  Post it here!

(We had a thread when the board first started, but it's kind of history now, I thought I'd start a new one ala the Free Book thread in the Book Bazaar.)

Anyway, here's my offering:

WordGeek, kind of between Scrabble and a Crossword puzzle...I'm enjoying it so far:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wordgeek/id403900611?mt=8#

Don't know how long it will be free...

While not free (can't remember the price ...99 cents or $1.99, I think) I am totally loving the Running Log! It's fabulous for tracking over time. I've plugged in my last several months. It's so visual and motivating.  Highly recommended for runners or walkers.

Jump o' Clock is a game DH and I picked up for free months ago.  It's the type of game that does take some quick reflexes, but it's highly enjoyable--hubby's played it for hours on both the iPhone and iPad.  It's sized for the phone, but the high quality of the graphics means it scales pretty nicely for the iPad as well, and it's a lot easier to see on that device!  LOL

Betsy, thanks for WordGeek.  Played a round earlier this evening and it was fun!

I found this free app on itunes today, called: Affirmations Inspired by Nature...not sure how long it will be free. It has very inspiring and uplifting affirmations and exercises that explore nature's power as inspiration. The music is really beautiful too. I love it!  :)

They aren't free, but a company called "Overdamped" that specializes in compiling collections of nice HD pictures of "cultural stuff" has most of their apps on sale for ninety-nine cents this weekend.  They have one for Leonardo da Vinci that I'd bought at full price awhile ago and liked, so I bought a few more artists that I'm fond of--Arcomboldo, and Hieronymus Bosch among others.  I figure for less than a buck, even if I just enjoy browsing through them for an hour one time, I've gotten my money's worth!

Only one of these I've actually seen was the Leonardo one, but it was very nice, and their app store description claims their van Gogh app was named "app of the year" by Apple or somesuch, so I imagine they are reasonably good values.

Hi, I'm new to (posting on) the boards. I'm a long time lurk-er.

A great free app - Bible.is
 
I Found Kindle Boards right after I was given my Kindle on Christmas 2009.

Per the book page:

The Kindle only version is $21.99, I think.

I highly recommend the WattPad app. They have thousands of free ebooks on there, although one should be aware that every once in a while, you may come across a pirated book. I don't think they have enough restrictions on that, but it's still a great app  :)

I like to have some good video available to put on my ipad for when I travel (especially by plane).  There are several good full-length television episodes available for free now in the iTunes store.  A Smithsonian documentary on The Hope Diamond and an episode of Zoo Vets about doing a root canal on a tiger stood out for me.  Several good things, especially from Smithsonian.

There's a nice app called "Roadshow" that allows you to download videos from websites and store them on your iPad for later viewing offline that comes in handy when travelling. There aren't too many videos I run across this way, but it's nice to store up the ones I do find.

The way I found them was to go to iTunes store, choose "tv shows", then  choose "free episodes" from the quick links menu in the upper right corner.  A bit down the page, you'll see a grouping called "free full-length episodes".  I don't know a more efficient way than scrolling through those and looking.  Since there aren't THAT many free shows, it didn't take that long!  Unfortunately, the Smithsonian ones didn't have anything to identify them by name, but in addition to the shows mentioned above, there was also a show on "Aerial America" about California from the air that looked interesting.

There's a new app called "Orchestra" or "Orchestra, Inc." which is like a to-do list for groups (or for personal use). Everyone in the group doesn't even have to be on Orchestra to use it because it connects to email as well. But it's nice to have the to-do list in one place, and people can see who signs up for what and what still needs to be done.

You can see who assigns the task, who takes it, have conversations about it, etc. Highly recommend for co-workers or people trying to organize something together.

If you like the Diner Dash series of games, Grilling Green is free this weekend.
http://appshopper.com/games/diner-dash-grilling-green

Couldn't find a direct link...I prefer to give a direct iTunes link, but haven't been able to find one.  If you search through iTunes, you want the Diner Dash Grilling Green Deluxe, with the blue background.

OK, this is a gorgeous platformer that isn't insanely difficult but does take some creativity.  It has an ongoing tutorial as you play.  Free today.

If you check in the iTunes store under "TV shows"  and look in free TV shows, there are a few free episodes of Lost in Space (I know everyone will rush off to grab those) and an episode of a Smithsonian show called Missing Evidence that covers Jack the Ripper.

An app called Universal Zoom is normally five bucks but is free at least for today. You can slide through a series of images showing things to scale ranging from subatomic particles up to the known universe. Extremely cool for giving a sense of scale.  I recommend the app.  If what I've described doesn't make sense check out the YouTube link below.

Thanks, I am on my iPad, and it insists on sending me to the App Store, where I can't get a link to copy and post...

Ah, ha!  I am also on my iPad, and I will assure you that you can do it, since that is how I did it!

Click on the link, either the one below or the link you originally used; it should take you to the App Store and popup the window for the app itself.  In the upper right hand corner of the app window, you should see the universal share icon.  Tap on that and then tap on the "Copy Link" icon in the bottom row of the window that pops up.

Voila!

:D

Wow, I knew you could email apps that way, but didn't know about the option to copy a link. But it works!
