Don’t let these gems pass you by. Save your money, and go free!
1. The Dark Knight Rises Z+
Want to feel like you are IN the movie? This is the app for that! Get the official Augmented Soundtrack Experience from the makers of The Dark Knight Rises.
“It will blow your mind.” Mashable
“It’s incredibly well done, and really does sound like you’re actually in the movie” Gizmodo UK
– Z+ Augmented Sound will transform your world into Gotham City. YOU ARE IN IT!

– Access over 2 hours of new and exclusive music including the extended “Origins” soundtrack
– Free exclusive behind-the-scenes commentary with composer Hans Zimmer and director Christopher Nolan.

Experience amazing Z+ realtime augmented sound, including new and exclusive music from the movie only available in this app.
Z+ augmented sound changes your perception of reality. Your world will be transformed into Gotham City. YOU ARE IN IT!
“I’m hoping to give fans of this beloved trilogy the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the soundscapes and atmospheres of the world of the Dark Knight. This new app allows users to be part of the film in a way that goes beyond the movie screen—it’s the difference between looking at a photo of a river, and being able to drop your hand over the side of the boat and feel the currents of the water tug as the river takes you on a journey.” Hans Zimmer
“Hans sets creative goals for every film that are higher than you ever thought practical…or even reachable.” Christopher Nolan
“A CD has tracks that are frozen in time. A Z+ app has musical worlds that evolve and adapt to the listener. Hans is making full use of these possibilities.”
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Download the @FreeAppADay.com Store App and wish for more top rated apps like “AutoRap” to be featured on FAAD!
YO. This is AutoRap. It turns speech into rap, and corrects bad rapping.
With Smule’s proprietary “rappification” technology, AutoRap maps the syllables of your speech to any beat, creating a unique rap every time. Just TAP TO RAP, and the app does the rest!
As the lyrical master, Jay-Z, says “This is the death of Auto-Tune, moment of silence”. This is AutoRap.
“you simply speak into your phone, and the app chops your voice and buries it in a whole mess of autotuney goodness” –engadget
Talk into the app, and AutoRap magically morphs your speech into a legit rap. Create your own original rap songs with Freestyle Beats, or use Premium Songs from artists like Snoop Dogg and Nicki Minaj, to AutoRap with the songs you know and love.
Switch to Rap Mode and flaunt your skillz by rapping along to your favorite songs, following the lyrics that scroll across the screen. AutoRap will correct your flow, snapping your syllables to the rhythmic grid of the underlying beat.
*** HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED FOR RAP MODE***
Now go share your creations with your friends via email, Facebook or Twitter. Sing them a happy birthday they’ll never forget, or give ‘em the lowdown on the sandwich you ate for lunch.
And don’t forget to show some love for your homies to help them reach the Top Rappers spot.
NEW BEATS AND SONGS ADDED EVERY WEEK.
The current song catalogue includes songs and beats by:
♪ Eminem feat. Rihanna

Each time you create an AutoRap, or Re-AutoRap, with a Freestyle or Premium beat, the corresponding Play Balance gets deducted by 1 Play. We give you a Starter Pack of free Freestyle Plays so you can try them out!
We offer two songs that are ALWAYS FREE – “Turkey Burgers” and “OneOneOne” – so you can use the app anytime you want completely free, without spending any money, ever.
