Looking to fill your iPhone or iPad with premium apps without having to pay all that money? Well you’ve come to the right place. We dug through tons of paid apps that went on sale on Thursday to find the six best freebies of the bunch. You’ll find them all laid out below, plus there are a few more in yesterday’s roundup that are still free downloads today.
This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any app developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Some apps may have additional in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

“Anchor Pointer: The navigation app that Apple should buy” – Financial Review, May 2016.
There are so many times we need a navigation app beyond the standard Maps or Google Maps. First of all, we will need a reliable navigation app when we’re not connected to the internet. Maybe we currently don’t have a data plan or we can’t find the signal. We might also need an app to save location and find our way when there is no map available, such as in wilderness or in a very large park. This is why you need a navigation app that uses your device’s built-in GPS system instead of internet connection. This is also the reason why we built Anchor Pointer. This location saver app will free you from a lot of frustration in finding your way back. It will also guide you when you are in nature where map apps are unavailable/unusable. By using Anchor Pointer, you don’t need to rent expensive navigation equipment anymore.
TOP FEATURES OF ANCHOR POINTER:
• Mark your location easily. We know that making such app should simplify your life and not let you do complex steps and that’s why we developed a very easy to use interface.
• Give you a direction to your saved location easily and fastly within a few seconds.
• Uses built-in GPS function. You should activate your Location before using our app
• Accurate and reliable.
• Work even when offline. You don’t have to be connected to a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi internet connection to use our app because we have a smart offline mode.
• Share your location with friends easily.
• Smooth user experience.

SAVE TIME – you don’t have to waste time finding your car in a great parking lot anymore. You can also save a lot of time when you need to meet or locate your friends. Just share your location and they can find you easily.
SECURITY – As travelers, we often get lost in a foreign country. Now you can save location (such as your hotel’s location) and find your way back easily. Furthermore, you can easily meet and locate friends or family in a big park when there’s concerts or other crowded events. When you’re hiking or doing outdoor sports, you can also find your way back to your camp safely and easily.
SAVE MONEY – As hunters or outdoor sports enthusiasts, you don’t have to rent or buy expensive navigation gadget anymore. Now you can use your iOS device as a navigation tool!
You can share your saved locations via email, iMessage, Twitter, Viber, Facebook and other popular services. You can also open your saved location on Apple Maps or Google Maps.
So, what are you waiting for? If safety is your priority and you want to be able to navigate your way whenever you are, download Anchor Pointer NOW!
Note: please take note that there is a limitation to the GPS technology that we use. GPS technology isn’t able to find your location when you’re underground. Therefore, our location saver app doesn’t work on underground parking or when you’re underground.
