Looking to score some great new iPhone apps at no cost? These three are some of the best you can get without spending a dime right now.

City Maps 2Go Pro

One of the biggest struggles of traveling abroad is paying for super-expensive roaming data plans. City Maps 2Go Pro is an amazing app that allows you to download maps for offline use, which means actually finding your way around a new city without spending a ton of money on a data plan.It will also give you walking directions and sightseeing recommendations.

Meeting Box

Although Meeting Box might work best on the iPad, it’s a great note-taking app on any device. It allows users to sketch, write notes, as well as take audio recordings to accompany your jottings. A good app for the note-takers who don’t like the distraction of a full computer in class or in meetings. More importantly, it can create an entire note document that you can cycle through later, page-by-page.


For the most expert doodlers, Sketchworthy is definitely worth downloading. Choose from different types of paper and choose from a variety of points and colors to let your imagination run wild. There’s a professional element to the app, too, which means you can sketch out blueprints or designs and share them with friends or partners.
