FREE forgotten / hidden apps

Today I dug deep down into the app store and came up with some hidden and/or forgotten apps, maybe some gems - and so I decided to post them here. Maybe some of them are interesting for you girls and guys here? Maybe you missed some of them? (Oh - forgot to mention: I don't know about the quality of every single app. But they're free, so download them and try yourself if you are interested... )

(Note, if you want apps added: the games have to be and stay free and have to be the full version.)

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Trivial Pursuit. It's temporarily free, but not many people know that it is.

Too bad, Trivial Pursuit doesn't show as free for me. But I'd add "Vortex" by Disposable Thumbs to the list. Interesting puzzle type game. I like Sol Free Solitaire - crisp, clean graphics. I know that Unblock Me Free hits the top app lists, but my kids and I like playing it. I'm sure there are lots of other free ones out there - those are just a couple that come to mind.

I've added your suggestions.

I won't add Trivial Pusuit, because it is only free for a limited time.

The list above shows apps which will remain free and may be forgotten or haven't been noticed by some people yet.

I don't know all these games and also nothing about their quaility and fun - but they are free, so just download them and try out. I remember there is another thread with free and good games like Topple etc., I'll add them later with links. Oh yes, and maybe I'll sort them by genre and in alphabetic order.
