Free App Store Deals This Week

The Mac App Store has some nice free apps available this week and I’ve rounded them all up into one quick read. There aren’t as many apps that were actually discounted this week, but I’ve added some great ones that are regularly free to make it worth your while.

Arriving

No, this isn’t a Twitter client, but how about a puzzle for your day? Chlova’s physics game might really get you thinking with its Our own Heather Weaver reviewed Arriving one earlier this month, saying that the “graphics and story are cute” and that it provides a “good degree of challenge”. Control is simple, the game has 56 exciting levels with 7 scenes, and there are 32 achievements to unlock so what are you waiting for?

Particles

If you’re a developer, then Particles may interest you with its simple, easy way to create particles for iOS apps that you may be working on. It’s a great tool to see exactly explore Cocos2D particles on your Mac, with the ability to show certain ones with backgrounds or even in fullscreen just so you can get the entire picture.

Mixtab

I’m always looking for good RSS readers and better ways to read content on the Internet. Lately, I’ve been using Readability, but before that I had Mixtab installed and running on a second monitor all the time. It’s really a beautiful app with a magazine-like layout and many great categories of content to pick from. You can also add custom RSS feeds if you want, so you won’t be missing anything that you love.

Price: Free
Requires: OS X 10.6 or later
Developer: Mixtab Inc.

Screen Snake

Remember your old Nokia mobile phones with the classic pixelated block game Snake? Yeah, those were the good old days. Well, Korion wants you to have the same experience on your Mac’s desktop with Screen Snake. It’s the classic game of Snake on your entire desktop — you’ll never get bored again!

Price: Free
Requires: OS X 10.6 or later
Developer: Korion

Metronomo

If you’re a musician and use your Mac to read chords off of places like Ultimate Guitar, then you probably want to stay on tempo as well. I’ve discovered that the combination of Metronomo and Cadence BPM Tapper is perfect for this type of predicament. You can listen to the song, find out the number of beats per minute, and then use Metronomo to make sure you’re playing it on tempo.

Price: Free
Requires: OS X 10.6 or later
Developer: Dutch:Apps
