Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 12.19.59 PM

What better way to celebrate a special day than with TEN free apps from Hallmark! OK, well, there are a lot of ways, but we're just an app site.

Hallmark makes beautiful story books with stunning graphics. Each app has extra activities included such as puzzles, snowball fights and interactive games.

 


There are plush animals that can be purchased to work with some of these apps, but the apps are the same with or without.

 ** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. Some of these apps have in-app purchases, which can be turned off in the settings on your device.

Some of these apps can be used with or without their respective Story Buddy™ toys which can be purchased from Hallmark, but they all function without the additional purchase. **
