Here are the rules for the Good Free App of the Day.
1) Rather than just post a list with links of free apps (some of which may not be very good) we're going to find one free app each day, make sure it's worth downloading, and post the info.
2) The app has to have some substance as free. In other words, it can't be a few seconds of play and then require an in-app purchase.
3) My kids or I have to like it.
4) It can't have ads all over it.
