A fish with purple goggles is bound to stick out.
Jeff the Mis-fish is written by Dr.Mel Rosenberg, who is not only a renowned microbiologist and a children's author, but a talented jazz musician too. There's a little bit of jazz going on in this app; that Jimmy the whale is one smooth crooner.

When Mr. Oyster, the principal, expels Jeff from school for being, well, too different, he swims out to learn more about the world. Scooped out of the ocean, he finds himself in an aquarium, at Goggle (note the spelling) headquarters, with Jimmy the Whale (yup, you guessed it).
Purchased byfishbooq.com, Jeff and Jimmy are heading by truck over the Golden Gate when they come up with a shattering idea. Free at last, they invent a new kind of www. And the rest, as they say, is fishtory.
Jeff the Mis-Fish Meets Jimmy the Whale is written by
scientist/author/musician Dr. Mel Rosenberg and illustrated by the
award-winning Rotem Omri. This is their tenth collaboration, the first
to be available in the app store.
Every day we pick what we affectionately call the Good Free App of the Day, an app that we have downloaded, tested and certified: It can't have a ton of ads or just a little content with a ton of in-app purchases.
It also has to be good.
We then present them to you to read, download, and share and, based on which ones got the most hits, here are your Top 100 Favorite Free Apps!
We've done our best to only include apps that are permanently free, but sometimes developers do change their minds so please leave a comment if you find an app that's no longer free.
