[NEW] Freebie Alert app! Super user friendly way to track down freebie offers!



From time to time, game developers make their cool games free for a very limited time - typically for a day or two. But how can you keep an eye on the whole App Store to track these great offers?

Relax and sit back, we are doing all the durty work!

Whenever we see cool game that become free we add it to our Freebie Alert app so you can download and enjoy the freebie!

Freebie alert is simple! It does not have a lot of unuseful features and its not laggy as AppZapp for instance. It simply serves you with quality (5 stars) "dropped" games compilations every 24 hours.

AMTGames,

Do you include any description on whether or not the "free" game is actually a freemium game? Also, do you include any description on in-app purchases? The latter is missing from the other "shopper" apps?

Hi,

There is a previous price section, which means that all the games we show are not freemium but full versions of the paid games which eventually became free for a short time.

The Freebie Alert app is showing Mad Simon And Monsters as free and it's not and instead is showing Mad Simon And Monsters Free. According to Appshopper the game was free Feb 03 '12 $.99 -> Free | Feb 05 '12 Free -> $.99 | Mar 02 '12 $.99 -> $1.99 | Mar 05 '12 $1.99 -> $.99.

One more thing can you include an option to refresh the listings or it refreshes by itself between a time interval?
