A tool for tracking your bills, and another for turning photography into a scavenger hunt, are among today’s Download Discounts.

Finance

BillMinder (iPhone) $0.99 (was $1.99)

The only thing worse than paying bills is forgetting to pay bills.

BillMinder’s job is basically to keep that from happening. You input all your various bills, the amount they run you, and their due dates. The app organizes them for you. It gives you reminders for when they’re due and allows you to mark when they’ve been handled.

Social Networking

PhotoRat (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

Here’s a free app that gives you a new way to look at taking photos, turning snapping new shots into a kind of scavenger hunt. The app includes several categories to encourage you to look for objects in the world that you can photograph in order to complete challenges – such as taking 50 photos of statutes, or 50 photos of concerts.

PhotoRat gives its users points for their photos, and you can compete against your friends to try to accumulate points more quickly. It’s a cool and free idea that adds a new competitive aspect to using your iPhone’s features, which is always fun.

Entertainment

Sucka MCs (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

You’ll find some free, somewhat juvenile entertainment in this app. Sucka MCs takes impersonated celebrity voices and lets you construct a rap using several phrases. Each phrase is tied to a button, so tapping them in order strings the words together to make a goofy flow voiced by an unlikely MC.

The app isn’t recommended for children under 17 for some slightly racy language, but similarly to apps like Talking Carl, this one will have an audience that could find it hilarious. It’s free, so why not check it out?
