Developers regularly drop the prices of their apps for limited, promotional periods, and while we tend to gratefully receive whatever discount we can get our paws on, it’s always that bit sweeter when an app or game goes completely free. Today, we’re going to run through a total of four great apps that can be snapped up for no cost whatsoever over at the App Store, and if your iOS device’s home screen is looking a little scant, then we’ve got the antidote right after the break!

Free Apps May Edition

Movie360 ($4.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

This little gem, which is tailored for iPhone and iPad alike, is the perfect companion to the videographer / wannabe director. With an abundance of great coloring effects and some robust controls helping you to refine your clips, it’s one of the best video-capturing tools out there, and given that it’s now free, is even more of a must-download.

Download it from iTunes here.

Card2Phone – Magic Trick  ($3.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Altimeter+ ($0.99 – FREE / iPhone only)

It’s not every day we feature an altimeter here at Redmond Pie, but then again, it’s not every day that one goes free. This little gem will help you to determine altitude using the ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer).

It claims to be accurate to ±10m, and with a 4.5/5 rating after several hundred votes, looks well worth picking up.

NoteLedge Premium ($4.99 – FREE / iPad only)

It’s a well-known fact that no list of apps is complete without a note-taker thrown in somewhere, and NoteLedge Premium offers a great deal more than what you’re probably accustomed to. In essence, it’s like a scrapbook maker, offering various vector brushes, marker pens and stamps (via in-app purchases), to help you get creative with your notes, whether you’re writing a recipe or scribbling down some rough notations.
