[prMac.com] Alcala de Henares, Spain - Blue Graphene S.L. today is pleased to announce App Free HD 1.12 for iPad, an update to their free Utility app that provides daily listings of App Store apps and games for iPad that are free or reduced in price for a short time. Having been rated the number one free Utility in the App Stores of 50+ different countries, all listings are continuously updated for accuracy. App Free HD allows the user to browse through iPad-only apps that are free, on sale, or featured. Also available are VIP Points where users gain redeemable points for using the app. App Free HD can be set to display list prices and sale prices in any of the following currencies: USD, CAD, EUR, GBP, JPY (Yen), or AUD.
Extremely successful throughout the world, the version of App Free for iPhone/iPod touch has more than 4,000,000 free downloads. As a "Discount Catcher" app, App Free HD is a powerful meta-app, an app about other apps. These two apps have achieved their great popularity through word-of-mouth rather than advertising. The apps are ad supported, but in this context, the ads are completely unobtrusive and supply relevant and interesting news.
App Free HD launches and functions in portrait or landscape orientation, and it contains a scrolling list of apps and games, and two buttons on the tab bars: List and VIP. List is the default setting, and the app displays two columns, Free Apps and On Sale Apps. Users can select from 21 different Categories: All (all games and apps listed), Games, Books, Economy, Education, Entertainment, Finance, Health, Life Style, Medicine, Music, Navigation, News, Photography, Productivity, Reference, Social Networking, Sports, Trips, Utilities, and Weather. On an average day, a total of more than 400 apps are listed (approximately 40 newly listed free apps, along with hundreds of games and apps that remain listed from previous days).
Touching any category listing, for example Games, brings up two scrolling lists of free and on sale games classified as: New Today, New Yesterday, Two Days Ago, and Older. Each game listing includes the game's icon, full name, normal price, and a Free! or price tag, ando touching it takes the user to a complete description of the game's premise and features, including screen shots. Selecting the Free! button again, automatically takes the user to the game's iTunes App Store page where it may be downloaded and installed free. Items on sale are discounted from 15% to 75%, and include inexpensive, mid-priced, as well as expensive iPad apps and games. All app description pages can be easily shared via App Free's integrated email, Twitter, and Facebook connectivity.
