Apple replaces free App of the Week with a new section, "This Weekend Only"

You might remember when every weekend we would tell you the current “Free App of the Week.” Since the launch of iOS 11, the gang in Cupertino did away with the weekly freebie.

Every week, Apple will reveal an app that offers a special deal or discount on anything “from apparel to food delivery, hotel reservations to movie tickets.”

To get to This Weekend Only, open the App Store on your iOS flavored device and head to “Today.” There, you will look for “Introducing: This Weekend Only.”

We could see Bixby 2.0 at Samsung's Developer Conference next week

This coming Wednesday, October 18th, Samsung will be holding its annual Developer Conference in San Francisco. During the event, we could see Bixby 2.0 unveiled. The virtual personal assistant made its debut on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+, and now Samsung wants to find third party products and non-smartphone devices that can benefit from having Bixby 2.0 on board.

Apple's Free App of the Week is no more

Week after week, we used to tell you which paid app was designated by the guys in Cupertino as the Apple Free App of the Week. From Thursday of each week through Wednesday night, the Free App of the Week would cost iOS users nothing more than the time it took to install the app on an iPhone or iPad. Well, you might have noticed that we have not written any stories about the weekly free app since the middle of last month. That’s because ever since the launch of iOS 11, Apple has done away with the freebie.

The revamped App Store does have a tab titled “Today” that features an “App of the …
