As every iPhone user can attest to, the amount of apps offered is downright staggering – currently over 375,000 to choose from. There are a lot of useful and good free apps that users can download – but many of them leave much to be desired.
“Just about every iPhone user knows that if you want a really good-quality app, most of the time you’re going to have to pay for it,” states Monster Mobile co-founder Manny Coats. “There are a few exceptions, but that is generally the rule – the best apps are paid apps.”
The Secret of Paid iPhone Apps
One of the best ‘little-known-secrets’ of the iPhone app community is that paid apps go on sale for free every day. Developers use ‘free sales’ as a way to expand their user base, and hopefully, get a few positive reviews. With any luck, they may get some word-of-mouth movement and find themselves on a top iPhone app list, which could result in a significant sales increase after the free period ends.
“The problem is, these sales are pretty low-key,” explains Coats. “While developers may be happy to offer their app for free for a limited time, they have no solid way of letting people know about it. So most people miss out on knowing that a good-quality app was free for a short while.”
Coats explains where the idea for Monster Free Apps came from: “I learned that an app my wife had just bought for $1.99 was free a week prior to her purchase. Even though it was less than two bucks, she wished she had known it was free just days before. This got me thinking: wouldn’t it be great if there was an app for that? And the idea was born – an app that tells you when paid apps are being offered free of charge.”
While there are websites and available apps that list discounted paid apps, Monster Free Apps has a rare feature: daily push notifications that alert users to available free applications. Coats says this important feature is what makes Monster Free Apps stand out from the others.
“We’re doing all the work for you,” he states. “You don’t have to remember to check in every day. We’ll send you a daily message letting you know about some of the top paid apps that are being offered free for that day. All you have to do is read the message and then decide if you want to take advantage of the free app.”
Coats adds that a polished and clean interface helps distinguish the new application, as well does the price tag: free! Monster Free Apps is itself free to use.
With cell phone bills climbing higher and higher, one thing on everyone’s mind is saving money. Coats says one of the best parts about Monster Free Apps is the saving money aspect.
Says Coats: “Every iPhone fanatic has a story of not paying attention to how many apps they were buying, and getting slapped with a very large bill at the end of the month. For many – especially heavy gamers – it still happens. Monster Free Apps can save you $30-$60 a month by letting you know when paid apps are free. You will constantly be able to get new apps, but you won’t have to spend a dime. Why pay for apps when you can get them for nothing?”
Down the Road
Coats says Monster Mobile has big goals in mind for Monster Free Apps and the future:
“We are working with developers and hope to be able to offer exclusive deals on the best of the best paid apps – free offerings you won’t find anywhere else. We also have aspirations to bring this to all smartphones, not just the iPhone. We’re always looking ahead,” he says.
