With an innumerable amount of applications flooding the iTunes App Store daily, users depend on sites such as ours to guide them in the right direction so they do not waste their money. However, a great many of these applications are free and plentiful, dozens offering the same basic service.
So how does one differentiate between those that simply waste space and those that uphold their promise? Well, Free-App Hero by Herosoft Ltd can do all that sifting for you. Free-App Hero, designed by professional game reviewers, updates users on the best free games applications in the App Store, eliminating the headache of trying to determine their worth yourself.
Free-App Hero presents an exceptionally simple interface, providing two lists of free applications. One offers the names of what they deem to be the top 100 free apps overall, labeled as their Permanent list. Ordered from most recently released to the oldest, all of these games are permanently free, unlike some that are only free as part of a short-term promotion. The Recent list focuses on free applications that have just been added to the store that are also worth a try. Each listing features a short review that provides the basic information you need to make a judgment call. If you think a particular game will be a great match, use the link at the bottom of the screen to go right to the App Store to download the app immediately.
Though game likeability is certainly subjective, Free-App Hero does a wonderful job of leading users in the right direction so they no longer have to waste time wandering through lengthy lists of games that might please them. They do not just search for any game listed as free and add it to their list. Instead, they are exceptionally thorough, playing each one themselves and writing a little something on each. (Sure, their application isn’t free, but anyone who puts so much time and effort into something would probably charge more than $1.99, so consider this a bargain.) This way, unnoticed applications that get lost in the shuffle will have a chance to shine.
Best of all, Free-App Hero makes sure to exclude free games that are only lite versions of their full-version counterparts and those apps which are only free because they are cluttered with advertisements. (The ad issue is another reason why you must pay for Free-App Hero, but you do get what you pay for, so enjoy!) Like a tour guide, Free-App Hero will surely provide the best information possible for an informed decision.
Free-App Hero [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
