We’re all very familiar with Monster Cable. They have the A/V empire that includes cables, headphones, 3D glasses, power products, cleaners, and much more. However, it seems that there is another Monster making quite an uproar. This one is Monster Mobile.

That company just announced the launch of Monster Free Apps, a brand new iPhone app. The idea is to have the one app comb through thousands upon thousands of other apps out there, to find you a few freebies.

If you’re familiar with the App Store, most likely you know that there are thousands of free apps out there. This app doesn’t just generate one giant list. Instead, it sends you daily push notifications of apps that have just become free or are free for a limited time. See the difference?

According to Monster Mobile, paid apps go on sale for free every day. Once you get a peek at what’s on sale, you have the option to download it for free, courtesy of Monster Free Apps, before the price goes back to normal.

Monster Mobile co-founder Manny Coats said that the idea came about from his wife’s iPhone experiences. “I learned that an app my wife had just bought for $1.99 was free a week prior to her purchase. Even though it was less than two bucks, she wished she had known it was free just days before,” he said. “This got me thinking: wouldn’t it be great if there was an app for that? And the idea was born—an app that tells you when paid apps are being offered free of charge.”

According to Monster Mobile, this can save users over $60 per month in app fees.

“We’re doing all the work for you,” Coats adds. “You don’t have to remember to check in every day. We’ll send you a daily message letting you know about some of the top paid apps that are being offered free for that day. All you have to do is read the message and then decide if you want to take advantage of the free app.”

If you try it, keep an eye out for some of the fun home theater apps we covered here. You might save $3 on Videocalc.

Monster Free Apps is currently available for free (of course!) at the App Store.
