Freedom App is a really good idea. The kind of idea that I’m surprised hasn’t been done before. It’s an app that keeps track of whenever other apps become free.

It’s cleverly done and appears to root out every app as and when it becomes free. Updated regularly, there’s a whole wealth of apps and games to investigate. The layout of Freedom app looks just like the App Store but with prices crossed out as obviously they’re free.

You can search according to how new the app is, how popular it is and across categories and the top 25. To make you feel even more content, Freedom App keeps track of just how much money you’ve saved so you can check back and feel smug at your bargain hunting.

My only real bugbear with it is that the prices listed are all in dollars even when I log in as my UK account. It’s not a huge problem admittedly as you can still click on the app/game and go straight to its position in the app store, but visually it’s a mild annoyance.

The actual content is down to whatever becomes free at the given time so it is a bit of a mixed bag and the cynic in me wonders just how much you’d save, or whether you’re just downloading things for the sake of them. However it’s a great idea for an app. Sure it might cost a bit to buy initially but I’ve no doubt that in the long run, you will save money by using the Freedom App. Just make sure you check back regularly before you consider purchasing anything!
