Free apps for iPhone , iPad , iPod Touch worth getting this weekend include âGoogle Play Musicâ which hit the App Store on Friday, according to a Nov. 15 report in MacWorld  . This free app is now available in the App Store six months after being originally released in Android's Google Play store (Google Play is the equivalent of the App Store but without the security and malware protections afforded by Apple's App Store).
âGoogle Play Musicâ is a streaming music service like âPandoraâ and âiTunes Radioâ. Like âPandoraâ, âGoogle Play Musicâ comes in two flavorsâ"a free version and a subscription version.
The free version lets users upload up to 20,000 songs from their personal music collections on their Mac, Windows or Linux computer to the Google cloud, plus store favorite songs for offline listening.
The subscription version is called âAll Accessâ and lets users listen to an unlimited number songs from a catalog of millions of songs; create custom radio stations (without skip limits) based on artist, album or song and get recommendations. This subscription version is $9.99 a month with the first 30 days free.
Unlike âiTunes Radioâ you cannot purchase music from either flavor of this free app.
New to the App Store today is the free price of âWhat the Frogâ, which is trending very popular despite being just released. This free game is âsurprisingly funâ (to quote Touch Arcade  ) and funny considering its goals are silly and it graphics are low-resolution.
Your aim in this free game is to make the frog, bicycle, washing machine or whatever character appears, jump to met a certain goal. The challenge here is you don't tap the screen to make the character jump. You tap beside the iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch or touch it to shake the screen to make the character jump. There are no ads in this free app and no in-app purchases. Just like in any fun game, controlling it is easy to learn, challenging to master.
