FREE iOS, tvOS AND macOS SOFTWARE for 01/2018

software

I have been maintaining a list of free software for iOS, tvOS and OS X. You may find some of these programs of interest. I have also attempted to mark which Apple OS the title is targeted at (iOS, OS X, tvOS) as well as the category of the App.

This is NOT a curated list. All I know about these titles is what you see below. None have been tried or tested by me.

  14. iOS/Games – Spree Pop is a straightforward mobile game that I really liked. It’s a stripped down, arcade shooter that supports iPhone X and iOS 11. The game features clean, colorful visuals and fun game mechanics. Besides, Spree Pop fun time is dominated by the sprightly soundtrack which makes the game so addictive that once you pop, it’s irresistible. It’s remarkably easy to pick up and play for this game but putting it down is the exact opposite. Its entire set up may be too simplistic for avid mobile gamers, and its bare-bones might not be the best for some player too. But personally, this is my type of game, the only aspect that didn’t go well with my taste is the distracting ads. However, this should not be a major worry; you can remove the ads with a onetime IAP which is pocket-friendly. Download for free from the App Store
