Get Free Copy of Voice Candy

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 09:00 AM

"Bored of your voice? Take your pick from a choice of 17 new ones! With Voices, you can record a quick voice memo as various characters,then share the best ones through the app with your friends and family with just a couple of taps."

This app for the iPhone (works with iPod Touch but you have to have an external mic) is new and as part of the promotion they are giving away a copy of the associated desktop app called Voice Candy. All you have to do is tweet about it on your Twitter account. The associated app Voices is $0.99 USD in the app store.

MacHeist Nano Bundle, Free Software For Your Mac

"We like to think of our job as helping to introduce the great indie software out there to you guys, the Mac users."

And as part of their job, they are offering the above six software titles for free. Well, actually five for now, as Mariner Write won't be offered until they hit 500,000 participants. You can check them out at MacHeist, and during the duration of the giveaway, they are also offering the iPhone app Convert for $1.99 USD. If you don't have Convert, this should be your prompt to at least give it a look. I think it is one of if not the best unit converter out there for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Play a Game, Win a VW

"Volkswagen knows something other car manufacturers don't: they needn't spend millions of dollars on commercials, billboards, and product placement to launch a new car. They just need to make an iPhone application, like Volkswagen has for their latest model, the 2010 GTI, and the money will follow."

The money won't flow from the app they released for the iPhone, that one is free! This is lite version of Freemint's Real Racing so it has fewer tracks and you can only race, obviously, a VW GTI. And by going to the winners circle in the app you can enter to win one of six snazzy Special Edition GTIs, like the one pictured above. You can also enter via the VW website. The weekly contest ends in, well, six weeks, after the last of the cars has been given away.

Free App to Find Free Apps

"Like products in the real world, iPhone apps often go on sale. But those deals are hard to find and usually don't last long. Free iPhone app PandoraBox can help you track down the latest and greatest sales on iPhone software."

This app lists several categories such as On Sale, Featured, New Apps and Favorites, and you can further split them up into free and paid. Another app that is similar is called Bargain Bin, however that one uses Push to give you updates on items in the app store.

Laridian Releases PocketBible in App Store

"PocketBible has been approved for sale on the App Store. Depending on where you live, it might be available already."

During the introductory period at least, this is a free app. I know some of you have been waiting for this for awhile, and now it is finally in the iTunes store. From the reviews I've read, this appears to be a very useful app. I believe this used to be web based iPhone program, and was finally released in this iPhone version.

Solve a Puzzle, Get an App!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:00 AM

"Everyone's favorite app bundle/puzzle game, AKA MacHeist, is back! MacHeist, now in its third year, combines a pre-bundle game, where users solve puzzles to unlock free apps and bundle discounts, and an actual bundle of apps, which go on sale at the end of the heist."

Seems like a fun way to get in on some free applications. I signed up today, and when I checked out the loot link they already have a couple free programs to download. One is called Shovebox, a nifty application that sits on your menu bar allowing you to capture bits of information in a variety of ways. According to the site they will soon have an iPhone app to go along with the desktop application. It's a $25 program so not bad for just signing up for the heist.
