myAppFree gets new features in latest update, helps you nail those Windows Phone deals

When it comes to bargains, we like to think Windows Phone Central does an admirable job of bringing you the latest and greatest. At the very least, you can consider us a filter on what is worth looking at. But even with all of our efforts, we still miss occasional offerings or niche apps that may of interest to you.

Luckily, the developers behind myAppFree have you covered. We brought you news of this app back in March and since then, it has been continuously developed. We also have many new Windows Phone users, and we figured we’d play catch up.

Version just went live in the last 24-hours and with it, comes a bunch of new features that make this app worthy of a download.

For those who aren’t familiar, myAppFree is a deal finder for Windows Phone apps, but it’s actually more than that. The folks behind myAppFree work with developers to feature their app in combination with the timed price drop. That’s in addition to highlighting other discounted apps currently found on the Store. Users can optionally login to the service to get other features too, like no ads, reports on money saved, “points for special gifts” and contests.

It’s a neat little app that costs nothing to use and is another method for software discovery. So what does version bring?

  • NEW "app of the day" Live Tile
  • pin it from myAppFree's application bar
  • bug fix Facebook registration
  • improved standard registration
  • stability improvement
  • higher image quality
  • password reset button

Because of the usefulness of this app, its general availability (Windows Phone 7.x is supported) and the fact it saves you money, we have to highly recommend this app to be added to your repertoire.

Pick up myAppFree here in the Store. All Windows Phones.

  • Thanks. Downloaded the app some months back. Its beautiful.
  • I also have Appdeals & Storedeals
  • Didin't know that. Thanks :)
  • Anytime. :)
  • I was coming here to say, between myAppFree & AppDeals, I've discovered so many awesome apps. Never heard of Store Deals so I'll check that out now. Thanks!
  • Thank's... Never heard of Srore deals either... I'll try rhis one too
  • Is there an app that shows new apps listed by submission? And sorted from most recent to least recent
  • Warning about this app, seems like its notification ability is screwed, hopefully that issue is fixed. App Deals has occasional notification issues as well.
  • Anyone know what happened to the app games gone free? When I try to open the app it says can't connect to server.
  • I got this app when it was mentioned on WPC a while ago, but most of the apps aren't too great and the good ones are already here.
