Today’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch apps for free daily include a new age arcade game, mileage log app, puzzle adventure, and 3D puzzle game. A number of apps drop from paid to free on a daily basis, and we pick the top four everyday, as many of the others aren’t worth your time even for free. Everyday we try to pick apps that are worth spending money on, but are now free to download, and here they are.
Dig ($2.99 -> Free, Universal) [Review]: The game offers a familiar arcade game mechanic seen in Jezzball and Qix, and provides all new depths to dig through. There’s a lot to unearth in Dig as there’s a level based adventure of digging each section of earth to keep descending for new artifacts. Your goal is to dig up 75% of the land in each level, and you do so by simply swiping your archeologist to keep cutting off chunks of earth. Every level of earth you descend introduces new enemies including mummies, moles, yard gnomes, slime balls, tentacles, and more.
Trip Cubby ($2.99 -> Free, iPhone): An App Store veteran that launched way back in 2008. It’s a mileage log app that offers predictive text entry, customizable tags, charts, excel compatible exported reports, online backup, and IRS compliance. It’s a highly polished app that makes it easy to keep track of your mileage.
Shiny The Firefly ($0.99 -> Free, Universal) [Review]: You get to play through the trials, and tribulations of the life of a firefly. The game begins with Shiny’s babies scattered by a sprinkler, and now he has to maneuver through three garden environments to save them all. Along the way he has to deal with water, mosquitoes, spiders, bees, frogs, and more, that can all hurt him and kill his babies. There are 33 levels of this puzzle adventure teeming with enemies, and forking pathways that require dangerous exploration.
Blueprint 3D ($0.99 -> Free, iPhone) [Review]: The game is a whole new puzzle game focusing on 3D layouts. It lets you manipulate 3D objects in 2D space to turn the jumbled blueprints into actual well known structures. Each level begins with an assortment of lines and dots that don’t look like much, but as you rotate and spin the lines you see an object take shape. The game is overloaded with levels, and each one is so neat to discover just by dragging your finger on screen. Blueprint 3D HD ($2.99 -> Free): The iPad version.
