There are still a few paid iPhone and iPad apps in yesterday’s roundup that you can download for free if you hurry, just in case you missed our post on Tuesday. We’ve got a fresh new roundup for you on Wednesday though, and you’ll find all of the apps below. Just remember that these sales could end at any time, so definitely grab anything that looks appealing while it’s still free.
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 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. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

Mount your iPhone somewhere and pose as much as you want. PhotoBot will snap it all for you!
THE STRUGGLE ========
We all know the struggle when taking selfies, It’s PRESSING THE BUTTON!
When you take selfies with group of friends, You somehow frame everyone in the photo but then realize it’s hard to press the capture button, because you are holding the phone with one hand and capture button is a bit far to reach.
You then use the volume button to capture but it leaves you with a blurry photo because when you try to press that hard button it shakes the phone.
The other case is you go to some beautiful place and then you want to take a picture, For example you standing in front of tower Eiffel. Now you have mounted the phone on a tripod or something, then put the self timer. and you go and stand there for the picture. It burst with 10 photos almost identical to each other. there’s no variety. If your pose is not that good in those 10 photos, then you have to stand for the photo again.
PHOTOBOT SOLUTION =========
But with PhotoBot app all you have to do is mount the phone and go pose as much as you want, photo bot will take a picture each second (Or amount of seconds you prefer), and all your poses will be captured. Then you will have a lot of great photos to chose from.

Photonu – live photo dual cam
The ULTIMATE DUAL CAM app. Take pictures and RECORD videos where you see another person’s camera thru bluetooth or wifi in PICTURE-IN-PICTURE setup, even in LIVE PHOTO!
◆ Connect with another Photonu cam and see their camera on your camera
◆ Move peer camera by dragging it within the back camera
◆ Tap to adjust focus, double tap to adjust exposure as well
◆ Toggle picture-in-picture, even while recording
For peer connection, wifi on same network is preferred but as a fallback always turn on bluetooth.
BONUS: Simulated dual cam with front camera. Note there’s no actual hardware support for this so the feed for front and back cameras are done thru automatic periodic switching which introduces lag. This simulated dual cam feature makes you see THREE CAMERAS AT ONCE–back, front, and peer–ALL IN ONE PHOTO OR VIDEO.
For LIVE PHOTOs press the shutter 1.5 seconds earlier than usual to get the right snapshot in the middle of the live photo 3-second video.
NOW no one is left behind. No need for awkward selfies. Everyone’s in the picture. ENJOY!

Thunderspace ~ Rain & Thunder
During the day, Thunderspace won’t let you focus on all the noise around you. And at night it will make you very sleepy. Do not use while operating a machine, vehicle or star destroyer.
We can’t calm the storm. But the storm can calm us.
Join us, over 1,000,000 relaxed Ladies and Gentlemen who immerse ourselves in realistic thunderstorms any time we wish to relax, focus, sleep or meditate.
Join the Thunderspace revolution and experience the great benefits Thunderspace will bring to your busy life.
Thunderspace’s spectacular 3D audio sound field reproduction technology delivers a realistic, high-quality open space sonic ambience over regular stereo headphones. How so? Think 3D glasses for 3D film. Left eye, right eye. Your brain combines these two images into a 3D image. The same principle works for sound: Left ear, right ear. Thunderspace audio is biomimetic: It reproduces the ambient sound field exactly the way you hear. As if you were there. With interaural time and level differences. The storm rumbles high above you, and the rain falls around you. Once you experience the transportive sonic ambience, you will never again want to go back to simple stereo.
Precisely synchronized lightning flashes, frequent updates with new premium quality thunderstorms, a carefully crafted user interface, and highest quality recordings from Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton separate Thunderspace from all other relaxation apps.
Thunderspace teleports your mind to a place far away from stress. Far away from the noise. So you can focus on your work, sleep better and relax.

Spy hidden camera Detector
Automatic mode is improved but reflective surfaces can still generate false positives. Mentioned as the iOS app to use in these guides:
◆ wired.com – How to Sweep For Bugs and Hidden Cameras
◆ techlicious.com – The Secrets to Finding Hidden Cameras
Protect your privacy from spy hidden camera lenses. Here are some actual news headlines:
◆ “Oil rig worker says she was secretly recorded”
◆ “Motel manager accused of setting up hidden camera”
◆ “Models find hidden cameras in apartment”
◆ “Man put hidden camera in restaurant bathroom”
◆ “Hidden cameras in gym’s tanning room”
◆ “Cameras in the bedroom – I was shamed by my own husband”
◆ “Couple finds hidden camera disguised as smoke detector in Florida Airbnb”
This app is a tool to help you detect disguised camera lens that you suspect are present in a room. Equivalent to camera detector gadgets, it tries to detect using the tell-tale signs of tiny reflections of hidden camera lenses. A free do-it-yourself way of detecting cameras from instructables, also based on detecting tiny lens reflections:
“Step 1: Find a tube that’s good for looking through. A cardboard tube from a roll of toilet paper or paper towels is best. Step 2: All you need is a flashlight or something that you can use to focus a beam of light in a dark room. Attaching a couple of directional LEDs to the outside of the cardboard tube can work also if you don’t have a flashlight. Step 3: With one hand, hold up the toilet paper tube to your eye. With your other hand, hold up the flashlight at about eye level and point it away from you. With one eye, look through the tube and scan the room. If there are any small points of light bouncing back, inspect it further. It might be a camera.”
Use this tool after your own visual inspection and investigation. Scan the room first without your phone and once you find something suspicious point the phone camera to the suspected object. The app alternately turns on and off the camera flash to detect the signature of a camera lens. Carefully adjusting the distance and angle relative to the target object helps as well adjusting the level of lighting in the room.
When automatic mode is ineffective or distracting you should use manual mode. In both manual and automatic modes you must use your own judgment as this is just a tool like what you would do with an expensive hidden camera detector gadgets or the do-it-yourself detector described above.
Anytime that you see the signature of a camera lens you can single-tap on the screen and put a marker on the suspected camera lens.
Yellow overlay – this signifies that the surface might be metallic or glass-like and that a great amount of reflectivity is being detected.
Cyan overlay – this means that the surface is changing in color consistent with the general hue of camera lenses.
The app will continuously try its best to put a marker where it thinks a camera lens may be present. To exclude surfaces that are generating lots of false positives you can zoom the camera or carefully change the distance or angle of the phone to the target. Works best in when room lights are dimmed.
BONUS: Magnetic meter to manually detect the slight magnetic field present in electronic devices including hidden spy cameras. Help improve this app by giving a glowing or constructive review 😉
BE SAFE and START SCANNING!
