5 iPhone App Deals You Just Can't Miss This Weekend

Jan 10, 2015

Looking to download a few great iPhone apps while saving some money this weekend? Check out these five, all on sale or free right now.

Van Gogh: Painted With Words

With plenty of apps released by the world’s largest museums, you might think there's little room for apps focused on a single artist. But this Van Gogh app is a true work of complete adoration for the artist, which makes as much apparent in the final product. Not only is the app amazingly interactive, with complete timelines of the artist’s works and biographical information, but it includes some of the less-well-known elements of his life, including letters with his brother Theo. The world would be a slightly smarter place if all apps about art were designed so well.

Van Gogh: Painted With Words is temporarily free in the App Store.

Beer Buddy

An app that allows you to scan barcodes on beer bottles in order to learn more about your beverage, Beer Buddy is perhaps much more useful than many would like to admit. It’s a constant struggle to remember the name of a beer you once had at that place after your buddy’s thing that time a year ago. It all seems so vague, but you remember the label was green and that it tasted good. Beer Buddy takes care of that problem, making it easy to get information about your drink and put together a favorites list based on your scans.

Beer Buddy is on sale for $0.99 in the App Store.

File Hub

A great app for storing or managing files, File Hub allows you to monitor all your cloud services, like Google Drive and Dropbox. The app provides a single uniform platform to access your files across those services, complete with a PDF reader, a music and video player, and a few ways of transferring files when necessary.

File Hub is temporarily free in the App Store.

Routina

Routina is a completely different kind of productivity/reminder app. It’s not a grocery list or a workflow organizer; rather, Routina reminds you of recurring events. Simply tell your app to remind you to pay rent every month, visit the doctor twice a year, or visit your grandmother once every 2 weeks, and the app will send you an alert at the right moment. It also happens to be really pleasant to look at.

Routina is on sale for $0.99 in the App Store.

NewsBar

NewsBar is a very customizable RSS reader that allows you to curate news based on source, keyword, or interest, publishing updates to your phone the moment a story goes live. No swipe and load—the app sends you a notification that stories have been loaded to your device. Definitely one of the better mobile-optimized RSS readers.

NewsBar is on Sale for $2.99 in the App Store.
