Free App Ideas Worth a Load If You’re in the Market for Some Free Stuff
MBF Blogs makes some app recommendations with this round up of relatively recent apps.
What all these have in common is that they are free.
Most free apps come from companies like Tripit, Yell Search, Riverford Vegetable Recipes, Ocado On the Go, Starbucks, ITV Player, and Instagram who want you take their app so you can order their goods or services easily.
Or so they can milk your data all the better to direct advertising at you.
But these apps are all gratis AND are more likely to be useful to you, the user.
