By Sidharth | Apple

Finding new free games, apps for your Apple device from the App Store can be agitating at times, especially when you are left uninformed of the paid apps that are available for free. Most of the apps are put out of the sight and are likely to be dumped into the ocean of apps — where a search would probably lead to nothing.

A good start for the new Apple device owners is to explore the free apps the Apple community has to offer. So, in this post, we will look into ways to discover the free apps that were previously available as “paid apps.” Most of the times, these freely available apps comes with strings attached, perhaps the free app can be a limited demo version, or has advertisement floating on the top of the screen.

If that doesn’t bother you, then go ahead and check out these websites to discover some of the best and the new free apps for your iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad.

Discover Free Apps For iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

The first website in the list is App Shopper — a popular website displaying thousands of free apps and games for your device. You can sort the apps by price drops (from paid to free), app updates and newly available apps.


The subscription to RSS feeds makes it easier for you to find apps, get latest updates on the free apps right on your Apple device (if you are using a RSS reader), or on your the desktop.

Yet another way to discover free apps is to use App Miner. App Miner can be called as the minimal version of App Shopper serving freebie hunters with the latest and the best apps. If you want to take the easy way out, then download the AppMiner app—freely available for the iPhone and iPod touch device.

Here is an app called “PandoraBox.” I haven’t tried this app as of yet, but given the fact that it is free and promises to offer paid apps for free, it is worth a try. Go ahead and download this app off the App Store (link).

Yet another notable application is “Free App A Day,” popularly known as FAAD. They offer a variety of paid apps and games for the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad, for free! The FAAD application available on iTunes has crossed a significant milestone by breaking the million downloads mark recently. So, rest assured, this is a top-notch app that you probably shouldn’t miss out.
