We're back again with some more free and cheap apps for your enjoyment and perusal. I've taken great care to note how much longer the free ones are... free, so pay attention. Remember that adding the freebies to your Google account means they're permanent, unless you uninstall in the usual refund window.
Speedometer GPS Pro
My very first car had a speedometer that didn't work. I was constantly doing math in my head and matching the flow of traffic to keep from getting a ticket. Suffice to say, it worked. Apps like this freebie should help anyone who is in that same situation, or just wants to check the accuracy of their own speedometer. This app is free for only nine more hours (as of this writing), so get going! Otherwise, it costs $0.99.
This app can track your speed, distance, time, location and also can get start time, time elapsed, avg speed, max speed, altitude...
- Save your track info.
- Switch between car speedometer and bike cyclometer.
- mph, knot, and km/h mode.
- Display satellites status.
- Speed chart.
- Map integration, get your location.
A Dark Room ®
I used to love the old text adventure games and they're still fun to play from time to time. A Dark Room is an RPG that hearkens back to the "good ol' days." You can grab this normally $0.99 game for free for five more days.
Awake. Head throbbing. Vision blurry. Come light the fire.
Among our free stuff today is a bunch of icon packs. First up is Noizy Icons, which bucks the new trend of dinner plate icons in favor of square ones. Just be sure you have a compatible system or launcher to take advantage of this. Normally, you'd pay $1.49, but Noizy Icons is free for one more day.
Noizy features rich effects, subtle but yet beautiful gradients, noisy shadow filter and square based icons.
