The Top Free Apps of 2017 that Shouldn’t be Free

We all love mobile apps. Regardless of how big or small
your smartphone or tablet is, apps make our mobile
worlds go round. In fact, at the last count, the Apple
Store and Google Play have around 4.4 million apps on
offer . Naturally, some aren’t worth taking off the virtual
shelf, but there are others that really can add some value
to your life. What’s more, some of the best mobile apps
of 2017 are free.

Thanks to innovations, ideas and an ideological shift in
what we think “free” apps should look like, there’s now
some extremely high quality products on the market that
don’t cost a penny. Although some will maintain that paid
for is always better, we’ve picked out three free apps that
beg to differ. In fact, not only will it surprise you that
these apps are gratis, we’re willing to bet you’d happily
open your wallets or purses to pay for them.

So, without further ado, here are our top free apps that
shouldn’t be free. We have three of them on our list.

Waze GPS

Forget paying over the odds for a Sat Nav because it
probably doesn’t track your movements as well as your
mobile does. Although in-phone GPS is nothing new, the
capabilities of apps that plug into this technology are
getting more impressive by the year. One of the best
releases for Android and iOS users is Waze GPS.

Costing the princely sum of “nothing”, this app is your
ticket to more efficient journeys and less stress behind
the wheel. As well as giving your directions, Waze is
capable of pulling road traffic alerts from the web and
feeding them to your device and will even help you find
the cheapest gas prices on your route.

However, we think the most impressive feature of this
app is the ETA messages. Once you’re on route, the app
can automatically message your friends and tell them
when you’re likely to arrive. For this feature alone (mainly
because it can save a lot of arguments) we think this app
is certainly worth exchanging some cash for.

mFortune Bingo


If we were to tell you that you can now play bingo for real
money via your mobile phone, you might not believe us.

For many, the first images you conjure up in your mind
when someone says that word “bingo” is a dingy hall
filled with old people and marker pens. In some respects,
those images still exist. However, bingo is now part of an
online gaming industry that’s worth upwards of $50
billion each year according to Statista, and that means
you can also play on your mobile.

What’s even more impressive about this is that you can
actually play for free, but still win some real money.

mFortune is a developer and operator that specialises in
mobile games. Sent direct to your device, these games
allow you to experience all the fun of bingo, blackjack
and more on the go. As part of its package,
mFortune
also offers free bingo games . Just for downloading the
app and creating an account, you’ll get a “welcome
bonus” which is basically free credits to play bingo with.

There is also a selection of daily games that loyal
customers can enter without paying a penny. To top it all
off, any money you win is yours to keep. So, even though
it’s free, you can still earn some cash!

Notes on Blindness VR


We choose this app not because it’s on point with the VR
trend or offers a break from the norm, but because we
think certain apps should allow you to see the world
through another person’s eyes. Too often we see
technology as something that can benefit our own life.

However, as Notes on Blindness VR has shown, it can
also help change our perspective on things for the better.

Based on the writing of John Hull who went blind at the
age of 36, this ARTE Experience app takes you on a
journey into a world of fading light. For the full
experience, iPhone users can plug their device into a VR
headset such as the FreeFly VR and you’ll get to
experience Hull’s descent into darkness.

Complete with audio notes and specially designed
visuals, this app will make you see what it feels to
be blind. From that, the developers believe people will
change their opinions on blindness and, hopefully, be
more respectful after using it which is why we think this
free app is worth paying for.

As you can see, free doesn’t mean low quality in the app
world anymore. Our three picks could easily cost a few
dollars and they’d still be worth investing in. So, the next
time you’re looking for a new app, don’t automatically
assume you have to pay if you want the best.
