Facebook is today unveiling the latest app being released under the company’s Creative Labs project that recently released the new Paper, Slingshot, and Mentions apps. The new app, called Rooms, is described by Facebook as a meeting place inspired by early Internet chatrooms and web communities: Rooms lets you create places for the things you’re into, and invite others who are into them too.
The new mobile version of Skype takes advantage of the larger screen sizes of Apple’s latest iPhones.
iPhone 6 users will be able to see more of Skype courtesy of the latest update to the mobile app.
Released Wednesday in Apple’s App Store, Skype 5.6 for the iPhone offers an optimized and scaled interface for the larger-screened iPhones, Skype said in a blog post. Specifically, the new version displays more of your chats in chat mode and more of your messages in conversation mode.
We finished last week with eight great paid iPhone and iPad apps that were available to download for free for a limited time, and we’re starting off a new week exactly the same way. Today’s batch of paid iOS apps that are on sale for free has a particularly wide scope, covering everything from productivity apps and a creative calendar app to photo editors and one of our favorite route trackers. And as always, if you want them all for free, you’d better hurry.
These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they are free at the time this post is published. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.
