Emerging free iOS apps: Mega Run, Snapseed and Gun Building II

This week’s free iOS charts are lead by the one-two team of Mega Run – Redford’s Adventure and Snapseed, both of which take No. 1 and No. 2 on the free iPhone and free iPad charts.

Get Set Game’s Mega Run is a cute and well-produced 2D sidescroller. Billed as the sequel to Mega Jump, Mega Run boasts seven playable characters and four unique worlds with 64 stages for players to complete. The free-to-play title monetizes through in-app purchases of two currencies, coins and mega points and promises regular free updates with new levels and characters will be released regularly. The app was released on May 29.

This week’s No. 2 app is Nik Software’s Snapseed, an award winning photo editor that gone free as part of being Apple’s featured app of the week. Further down the chart this week’s fastest rising app is independent developer Yizhan Ye’s Gun Building II, an app that lets users customize a gun and then “shoot” it in the real world by using the iPhone camera. Normally a paid app, the game is currently free-to-play.
