Today’s Apps Gone Free includes a number of freebies, led by the recently released Manny Pacquiao: Pound for Pound and the fantastic Zombie Gunship. And EA’s Need For Speed Undercover is also free as part of their Daily Deals event, though it appears that the offer’s only good for iOS users outside US/Canada (it’s showing as free in UK store for instance). Dive in and take a look at the full list after the break.
And if you missed our freebies roundup yesterday, most featured in there are still showing as free!

Flipboard, a highly popular social magazine app for the iPad, has finally made it ways onto the iPhone.
The eagerly awaited iPhone app also includes a brand new feature only exclusive to the iPhone and iPod Touch – Cover Stories. With Cover Stories, you can quickly browse the most interesting articles and photos being shared with you right now. It’ll apparently get “smarter” every time you use and interact with it. Like the iPad version, Flipboard is completely free to download. Flipboard’s new iPhone ad and more can be found below.
Update: If you’re having troubles building your first Flipboard and receiving the “Couldn’t build your Flipboard. Please check your internet connection and try again.”, you’re not alone. A number of people are also having difficulties getting started. It’s possible that the Flipboard servers are hammered at the moment with the influx of new iPhone users. Hopefully this is won’t last too long and that you’ll be able to actually use the app shortly.
Flipboard Inc., Flipboard, – Free

I never thought I'd care much for games about growing plants, but like a lot of other things iOS devices have convinced me that such endeavors aren't so bad. The latest such game to catch me attention is Drawin’ Growin’ by Taito, and this game is certainly different than the others I’ve played. Your task is "simply" to make sure the plants get the right amount of water or sunlight, depending on the color of their pots. However, your job is not as placid as it seems. Many things will get in the way of your success, and how well and quickly you deal with them will determine your ultimate rewards. There are times where the action can get a little overwhelming, but for the most part so far it's been a pretty relaxed and interesting adventure.

If iBooks is your go-to e-reader on the iDevice, be sure to grab this free update and check out the new goodies. And if you missed it earlier, see how you can use Dropbox to store and transfer your ebooks to apps like iBooks and Stanza in our recent tutorial.
