Ever wanted to take a picture, without anyone knowing you took a picture? We have a free app to help you out — plus an app filled with free short stories from authors you’ve heard of, and a free app that puts you in the role of a cop, or a robber, with some platforming goodness in store. Check them all out in our Download Discounts below.

SneakyPix (iPhone) Free

You know how sometimes you want to take a photo of something, but you don’t want anyone to know you’re taking a photo? Like if you see a celebrity, or someone falls in the supermarket; you need some way of taking a photo incognito, and SneakyPix has your back

Rather than requiring you to look at what you’re shooting and press the shutter button, SneakyPix lets you set the camera function to snap a photo every few seconds. Meanwhile, you put the phone to your ear as if you’re talking to someone, and bam — sneaky pix. No one will be the wiser. The app is free for a limited time, so get it on the cheap while you can, and be ready next time something happens that you’d like to document without being judged.

Cops & Robbers (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

This platformer has you evading police with racing-like gameplay as you rob various venues of their valuables. The game is free for a limited time and features nine different playable levels, with three different challenge modes for each stage.

In addition to mini-games in order to unlock safes and steal items, you’ll be tasked with finding the best way to avoid police in your escape by performing different acrobatic feats to reach new areas. And when you’re done escaping, you can switch to the cops and try to chase yourself down, which is a very interesting idea.

StoryShelf (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

Grab this app free for a limited time — it’s filled with short stories from classic authors, including Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Beatrix Potter and Edgar Allan Poe.

StoryShelf also gives you book shelves to place the various stories on and decorate as you see fit, using your own photos and choosing artwork that can be framed within the app. It also lets you listen to music while you read. The stories alone would be worth your download, especially for free. There’s no reason not to grab this great, interesting app.
