“Free App Alert” is a series where we list out a couple of premium/paid apps which are available for free for a limited period. In today’s edition, we have a whole bunch of utilities and games for your iOS or Android phone. Feel free to suggest any app that you like which has gone free (forever or for a limited time). Please note that the app developers can change the pricing anytime, so please be fast.
Network Signal Refresher Pro
We begin with an Android tool that usually costs Rs 260 and is currently free – Network Signal Refresher. As the name suggests, the app lets you refresh your phone’s signal without going through the hassle of restarting or messing with the settings. It is a one of a kind utility and works flawlessly with most smartphones out there. Usually, this process requires root access, however, this app doesn’t require that. It’s certainly a must have and you can download it from here.
Next up is an iOS OCR app – TextGrabber. It essentially lets you digitize text from documents and images. The application can even recognize various highlights and automatically generate links for actions such as calls, calendar events. Moreover, there’s support for translation in over a hundred languages which is quite astonishing. TextGrabber comes with a straightforward interface and can also scan QR codes.
Silent Mode Pro
This one’s probably my favorite from today’s list. “Silent Mode” is an app you can use for silencing your phone’s audio whenever a particular app has been launched. It allows you select applications and activate the mode on a single click from the quick settings (Android 7.0+) or a widget. Additionally, it can bypass the phone’s default preferences and turn off the camera shutter sound.
Cleaner Pro is an iOS app that can unclutter your contacts list by removing duplicate ones and automatically merge similar ones. As a user, all you need to do is a press a button and the app will take of the rest. In addition to this, there are options for backups and filtering out specific items.
Yomira Icon Pack
Of course, we have an icon pack for you. Yomira, although, unlike others, features a unique set of graphics with punchy color contrast and popping icons. The app also comes with a range of matching wallpapers if you’d like to try out. Yomira generally costs Rs 70, however, is available entirely free of cost right now.
Ginger Sticker Maker
This is an iMessage app that is capable of creating stickers based on your personal pictures. It crops out the part you’d like to use and turns them into shareable stickers on iMessage. That’s about it.
Armpit Hero: VIP
If you enjoy anime and RPG, this one’s for you. Weirdly named “Armpit Hero”, the game comes with a captivating storyline and a main character whose purpose is, well, defeat the bad guys. The title’s impressive graphics has generated quite a positive impression on the Play Store. “Armpit Hero: VIP” usually is priced at Rs 60 but you can grab it for free as of now.
