    Lightbulb The Big Free App Thread [Updated: 17/01]

    The Big Free App Thread

    Every day I seem to be finding a ton of free apps recently discounted so I thought i'd get a list going.

    Feel free to post to help out and i'll update the main thread when I can, rules are:

    * Apps must have been recently discounted (so no posting always free apps ie. facebook, twitter etc.)
    * Apps must not have in-app purchases (unless you feel purchasing is really not needed to use the app, anything posted that has in app purchases will be marked accordingly)
    * When app prices go back up they will be removed

    Okay lets do this!

    I've just downloaded App Miner which seems a bit more broadbased than the EA app. I used to use Bargain Bin which has been removed from the app store, one more paid for down the drain, and PandoraBox which hasn't been updated since Nov 2010.

    Default The Big Free App Thread

    From here

    Grab Episode 1 of The Walking Dead free on iOS
    http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/...d-free-on-ios/

    At this point, you have no excuse not to know of Telltale Games’ phenomenal adventure game adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. Not only did the episodic game earn Digital Trends’ first ever perfect 10 out of 10 review score, we also recently named it our 2012 Game of the Year, despite stiff competition from massive blockbuster titles like Halo 4, Dishonored and Borderlands 2. In short, we’re big fans of The Walking Dead, so when the first episode of the game’s iOS incarnation suddenly saw a drop from its standard $5 price point to an inarguably enticing “absolutely free,” we just had to let you all know about it.

    If you fire up your nearest iOS gadget and pay a visit to Apple’s App Store this very minute, you’ll find Episode 1 of the first season of The Walking Dead available for free download. While you’re there we’d recommend downloading it, as this is a limited time offer. You won’t find specific dates listed anywhere on the app store, but we contacted Telltale and the company told us that this deal will only run for the next week.

    That's what I heard as well, but only when you're using WhatsApp with free public wifi I think?

    Ahh. That makes sense. I was using it with my main texting partner until he had the good sense to buy an iphone and its been imessage all the way since then. I send so few other SMSes that it barely makes a dent in my credit
