Free App Store Deals This Week

Hot off the presses, here’s Mac AppStorm’s weekly picks of the best (and free) deals on the App Store for this week.

Enjoy!

Super Date

Super Date

If you’re sick of the default date and time view on OS X, then you can change it easily using Super Date. The app features more date and time formats than OS X, and you can also have it to display the week number as well. Simple, free and very useable – what more do you want?

Price: € 0.79 – free
Developer: Lodehed Labs
App Store link: Super Date

Fresh Feed Pro

Fresh Feed Pro

Fresh Feed Pro is an elegant, light and ad-free RSS and Atom reader which is easily accessible from your toolbar. Once a new story arrives, the app alerts you with a short tone and you can preview the story straight from the app or, if you want to read more, you can click on the story to bring up the full version. Fresh Feed Pro allows you to share the story via Twitter or Facebook directly and the Pro version has a few hidden gems, such as Google Reader support and the ability to add feeds directly from any browser.

Price: € 4.99 – free
Developer: Bloop S.R.L.
App Store link: Fresh Feed Pro

Web Slices

Web Slices

Web Slices, developed by the same people as Fresh Feed Pro (see above), allows you to create snapshots of websites, allowing you to monitor them over time. The app can take imprints of virtually any web page and saves them automatically and you can also configure it to do this automatically (for example if you are the administrator of a page with regularly-changing content). Web Slices saves all pages for offline use and can integrate with Growl, alerting you when a new snapshot has been taken.

Price: € 3.99 – free
Developer: Bloop S.R.L.
App Store link: Web Slices

OS Track

OS Track

If you want to discover what’s whirring away underneath your Mac’s outer shell, then OS Track is the app for you. You can easily see which applications are either eating up your bandwidth or CPU processing power and the app can graph the results for you. OS Track also sports a history feature, meaning that you can view the results from the last 60 days, which gives it one up on the default Activity Monitor built into OS X.

Price: € 5.49 – free
Developer: Bloop S.R.L.
App Store link: OS Track

Easy Video Converter

Easy Video Converter

Why pay for an OS X video converter when you can get one for free? Although it won’t win any awards for looks, Easy Video Converter lets you drag and drop videos straight into it and will convert most videos (including HD ones) into a wide range of output formats, including for all iOS devices (the Apple TV included). The app supports batch conversion and you can configure it to add converted videos to iTunes automatically. For a free app, this is a real steal and a great little tool for anyone who wants to watch their own videos on their iOS devices.

Price: $ 9.99 – free
Developer: Hewbo
App Store link: Easy Video Converter

    I checked out all those apps and I don’t get why you would even write about them. Yes they are free and free is good. But if you look at the reviews about crashes and usability, they suck. There are other apps out there that do the same thing but better and some are actually free. If your site wasn’t connected to Envato, I’d just role my eyes, but Envato has a name to uphold and you’re not helping them. Sorry.
