Today's free apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch start with the free app for iPhone, “Gross”, which tells users it's time to get their butts off the couch—as news about a new smartphone app that improves real-time communication between parents and children is announced, according to a Feb. 3 article in “The Times of India”.

“Gross” reminds you to be more active by letting you know how inactive you really are—and when you do see this inactive time, you'll be shouting “Gross!”. This free app uses a clean, intuitive display that shows you how much of your day is spent walking, running or cruising—and how much isn't (labeled “Gross”). It also keeps track of your last seven days of movement so you can see which days were most active. This free app can be downloaded from the iPhone-only section of the App Store and uses the M7 co-processor found in iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini (G2).

This free app for iPhone is about activity too, but a different kind of activity. “Hack Run” (Reg. $1.99) is a really cool interactive game where you take up the role of hacker.

“Gesundheit HD” (Reg. $2.99) is free today and running hot.

In this free app, you help a little pig face off against wacky monsters—but it's not as easy as it sounds!

Going up the download charts is “Pocket Avenger”, a free app game today with stunning visuals. Here, the foretold zombie apocalypse has come to pass and now your only chance of survival in a zombie infested world is to keep moving, while also keeping the remaining humans safe any way you can.

Trending popular today too is the app “Song2Email”, which is usually 99 cents but free today in a cool app deal. This now-free app lets you share songs by emailing these songs from your music library to anyone for free, over Wi-Fi or cellular. Recipients can listen to these songs on their computer, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch—wherever email can be received. What's more, multiple songs can be sent in the same email—which also includes artist names and cover art.
