Liquid Daffodil giving away apps for free, preparing for Unification release

Update: Pricing alterations for Windows 8 apps should now be live for the next 24 hours (note that Windows Phone apps offer has passed).

To celebrate the launch of Unification, Liquid Daffodil's answer to a notification center for both Windows and Windows Phone platforms, the developer has altered pricing for numerous apps so consumers can download highly rated content that are Unification ready and prepare themselves for when the Unification app is finally listed on the respective stores.

If you're not familiar with Unification and don't understand what this is all about, Liquid Daffodil is preparing to release its own notification center that will enable consumers who own Windows Phone 7 / 8 and Windows 8 / RT hardware to enjoy a unified experience, with third-party developers able to bring notifications and other alerts together in a single app.

This is an exciting deal with almost $50 worth of apps available for absolutely nothing. So which apps from Liquid Daffodil are now listed for free for consumers to enjoy?

For Windows Phone - Unification Ready:

Others (that do not currently support Unification):

Unification App

The Unification Windows Phone app

The developer also supports Windows 8 / RT. For Windows 8 - Unification Ready:

We previously looked at the array of apps before, so be sure to look up each title and read more about the apps. As for Unification, be sure to check out our quick video walkthrough of the app itself (if you haven't already done so).

You can download the apps that are currently free for the next 24 hours by using the links above and QR codes below (in same order as above list, left to right - price alteration have been confirmed to be live though some apps may take some time before reflecting the price drop). The devloper urgers consumers to rate the apps accordingly and to fire emails with feedback for improvements to be implemented.

When can we expect to see the actual Unification apps released for Windows and Windows Phone? Very soon indeed. Everything is currently being approved, trickling through Microsoft's systems.

  • Downloaded Unification already...
  • How come? Its yet to be released.
  • Actually it is available. I have it too. No joke! Last night Liquid Dafodil tweeted saying it was available so I clocked on their link and it too me to it in the store.
  • Yes. The notification on WPcentral came now. I downloaded it. Thanks
  • I've had the app for a good three days so far
  • Here's the link (Unification)
  • <p>Are you sure? Dont be a troll, provide the link!</p>
  • How did you get the Unification app? Couldn't find it in the marketplace.
  • april fool
  • Its there
  • Yea I've had it a few days now its pretty nice just needs more support from devs
  • Liquid daffodil are superstars. Thanks chaps!
  • Yes they are! The only reason I'm using Mehdoh instead of their apps is cause of the souncloud dashboard...
  • The Windows 8 Apps don't seem to be free, the Windows Phone apps however are.
  • not free in Greece :(
  • i don't have my phone right now
    any way to get them free and install them after a week ????
  • Log in to and "purchase" the apps there. So long as you already have a Windows Phone on your account then you should be golden.
  • If the phone's on and has coverage, you can send apps to it from I think there's a limit on how many you can send every day.
  • Yes but only after one week but you have to keep them in the fridge, if not they will start smelling bad. You might deep-freeze  them, but I am not sure that you will be abel to wake them up after that.
    God luck and have a happy 1st. of Avril
  • Your joking right!?
  • Folks, seems to be a slight delay on the Windows 8 price update. We'll keep those free too, at least 24 hours from when they update. Should just be a few hours delay.
  • Still not free...
  • Even the WP8 ones are not free. I already own 3 of them but rather have them all when free ;)
  • Every article today i've skipped to the bottom for hints of April humor, prior to reading...
  • Yeah, funny coincidence but no April Fool's here! They're giving it all away for free, just because they love their fans!
  • All them are Twitter apps...
  • No...flyby! Locksider+ and Translator! too.
  • Those apps are WP8 exclusive, but i can't complaint, is not Liquid fault that I don't have a WP8 device :)
  • Its was available for download yesterday. LD posted a tweet with the dl link
  • Awesome news. Thanks! ;)
  • Release the app already!
  • Hello, anyone. How do I get the Unification app? Can't find it in the Marketplace.
  • Im in the UK and i cant find the unification app in the store and the other apps arnt free, but when i scan the QR codes it takes me to the store and theyre free?????
  • Unification in UK. Free, as well (at time of posting).
  • Doesn't seem to work yet, though.
  • Same here dosen't work either, though using gleek as twitter client and loocked in to Microsoft accounts on both apps.
  • Can someone explain to me.....are the windows rt and 8 apps free too cuz they only show up as paid on my surface.
  • Unification is (surprisingly) available on this link
    All the applications mentionned on WP8 are downloadable for free, but not in windows 8.
  • Sad the apps weren't free in Windows 8 at all today. 
  • The Windows 8 apps are still not free... :(
  • Windows 8 apps are FREE now. Grab it before the offer expires.
  • Sigh, I tired late last night and again on seeing your comment, but both times all the Windows 8 apps were not free. :/
  • Still not free in India
  • DL'd app 2 days ago, and it still doesn't work... Right now 5* idea, 1* app. It just simply doesn't work on my 920
  • Not showing up as free for me :/ US store. (WP)
  • I thought this app was released a few days ago. I've had it for a few days now
  • not showing up free for me in US Store either
  • 1550 UK - still showing as a priced item not free
  • (note that Windows Phone apps offer has passed).
    What you mean? special offer has already ended? 
  • No. He meant Windows Phone apps offer has expired but you can still get Windows 8/RT apps. 
  • This is exactly what I meant. WP8 offer is gone. Somehow they didn't published the news fast enough.
  • I guess either you are not following the site regularly or you have missed this post. This is a 2 days old post, just  re-published to alert the Windows 8/RT apps price alteration.
    There have been some problem with the Windows 8 store and that's why it took 2 days for price alteration. 
  •   News: By Rich Edmonds, Wednesday, Apr 3, 2013 at 8:26 am   My post: Posted on Apr 3, 2013 at 10:51 am - 1 day ago   So 2 days old means Apr 1. Nice an offer during Easter Eve. The best way to limit the number of people who can use it...
  • Its still FREE for me. BTW I have checked US, UK and IN store and it all showed as free.
  • I don't see these apps as free. Do I need to do something different?
  • I'm still waiting for the win8 apps to update in the store as well (TN, USA).
  • Isn't this an old article?
  • It was updated due to some Store issues LD was having with their Windows 8 apps.
  • Currently when I search for an app like Gleek in the Windows 8 store it says it's free, but when I click it to open up the app description it still says $9.99 (this is in the US store).
  • Just click Buy. It won't charge you (per @LiquidDaffodil on Twitter)
  • If you go through the "Buy" process you'll receive a notice saying that the details have changed and it will then show as free.
  • Thank you to both of you. I tried it and it worked.
  • Still showing as money on the UK store, even if I click buy still has a price
  • Darn.  I missed out I guess.
