While yesterday's update to the Apple Store iOS app introduced some significant alterations to the interface, one thing Apple didn't change is its tradition of occasionally offering select paid apps for free through the Store for a limited time.
Right now, users who scroll down the Discover tab can find an option to download photo painting app Brushstroke for free, instead of paying $4.99 when downloaded in the typical way through the App Store.
With Brushstroke, you can transform your favorite photographs into beautiful paintings. With a slew of presets and tools, creating the perfect look is a breeze. And when your masterpiece is complete, you can even order a canvas print to hang on your wall.
Users of Brushtroke can choose photos to convert into 'paintings' from their Camera Roll and other albums, or shoot pictures and then edit them from within the app.
A number of color palettes and canvases are on offer to experiment with, and finished paintings can be signed and then shared over social media. Users can also pick a frame and size for their painting, and order a canvas print from CanvasPop for home delivery.
The offer to download Brushstroke for free through the Apple Store iOS app expires on September 1, 2016. You can download the new update for the Apple Store app from the iOS App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Here's one I made earlier:
Not all steps are super obvious, so:
1. Open the new Apple Store app.
2. Swipe down in the Discovery (first) tab until it shows up.
3. Tap to download it.
4. When the code appears, ignore all that about camera scanning, but tap on the link in the upper right corner.
5. The download should begin. Unlike with App Store purchases, nothing shows in Home Screen until it's done.
I downloaded it last night for free via the Apple Store App; I'm in the UK and using the UK App Store.
