The best things in life are free and sometimes this also applies to the digital world…
While free apps do not necessarily mean they are the best apps, people usually do not think twice about downloading something they don’t have to pay for. Digital marketers also know offering something for free is a good way to get customers.
So what are the best free iPad apps so far for 2013?
UPS app for iPad – If you’ve tried sending via UPS before, you know you can track your packages on their website via computer. Now you can do this from your iPad, visually tracking your package on a map. You can also get the location of the UPS branches closest to you. You can also re-route or re-schedule a delivery to a more suitable time and location.

Dictionary.com – Dictionary & Thesaurus – Unfamiliar word has you stumped? Well, never again. This reference tool offers the meaning to over two million words fast, quick and easy.

Sticky Notes for iPad – There is no denying the importance of sticky notes in real life. However, there is also no denying the sticky mess they leave behind and that they become useless trash after we are done with them. But with the sticky notes app you can have all the good things about a sticky note without the bad things. Plus these are sticky notes you can ‘recycle’ as often as you can and never have to throw away.

Okay, so not all of them are totally free, some of them are freemiums. In case you didn’t know, a freemium is a limited version of an app offered at no cost or a full-featured one available only for a limited time. Users who want full features or continued use have to pay, an excellent strategy by social media marketing.
