7 awesome paid iPhone apps you can download for free if you hurry

We started the week off with a solid list of eight paid iPhone and iPad apps that were all on sale for free for a limited time, and a number of them can still be had for free if you hurry back to that post. Today, however, we have a great new list for you with seven more paid iOS apps that are all free downloads for a short time.

There are a few real gems on today’s list — especially for all the mobile photographers out there — so be sure to snag them as quickly as possible or you might miss these great sales.

DON’T MISS: 11 great Google apps you’ve probably never even heard of

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Easiest to read run stats monitor ever! Works as the main running app or alongside any other top running apps (like Runtastic & Runkeeper, etc…) to provide a super clear summary of your progress at a glance from any angle (when using an armband). Even the music controls get a boost and are a major improvement over these other apps with intuitive gesture controls. It helps the jogger concentrate on the goals and targets of their run with minimal distraction.

Joggin’Safe Is designed for iPhone 5s, 6 & 6 Plus. It will not work with iPhone 4s, 5 & 5c.

– Big, Bold, High Contrast & Color coded Display which is easy to read in any condition.
– Adjustable Read Angle is particularly suited for armband use and instant glance readability.
– Advanced Music Gesture Controls provides complete control of your playlists/playback and completes the package to give you the ultimate easy to use Jogging app.
These features are perfect for live progress monitoring of the vital run stats with a simple glance, thereby allowing the jogger to concentrating on the path ahead.
– Integrates with HealthKit to obtain personal information necessary to accurately calculate calorie consumption.

Other Features:
– Innovative, glance free, “safe-mode” which kicks in when you start jogging, dims the screen and minimises battery drain.
– A simple touch of the screen whilst jogging/running brings the screen to life, increasing the brightness for 20 seconds so it is readable in any light condition.
– Each run stat displayed has a unique color for easy of identification at a glance.
– Change track or volume without having to look at screen with a simple tap/swipe control.
– Users with headset controls can use the extended control feature that allows skipping play list/albums using glance free gestures.
– Optimized for iOS 8, iPhone 5s and above.

N.B. Joggin’ Safe is designed for iPhone 5s, 6 & 6 Plus. It uses the latest M7 & M8 chips found in these later generation iPhones for efficient and a more accurate method of calculating distances. It will not work with iPhone 4s, 5 & 5c.

Battery Life:
Joggin’ Safe is designed to continue running in the background should you intrupt your run & continue later. This can adversely impact on battery life if you do not save your run and close joggin’ Safe.

– Joggin’ Safe is intended to integrate with HealthKit to gather data, such as height & weight, in order that we calculate calorie consumption more accurately. No data is used or shared with any third party for any other purposes.
– Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
