If you’ve been catching our Daily Freebie posts, you’ve no doubt snagged some of the fantastic free apps out there — or been alert enough to snag an amazing deal when this or that killer app goes free for a short time. But there are other tools that help make sure you don’t miss out on all those great free apps. Hubbl is one of those tools and we’ve mentioned it in the past — but now it’s got a cool new trick that we’ve never seen before.

Hubbl uses sophisticated algorithms to try to figure out what your taste in apps is like, and then it scours through hundreds of thousands of apps to find the ones it thinks you want. You can even add channels (there’s a great one titled “Cult of Mac”) that’ll feed app discovery from all your favorite blogs (ahem). The big news this week is that you can now get daily recommendations for free apps from Hubbl delivered straight to your iPhone’s Passbook.

The process is pretty easy. Just navigate to in Safari on your iPhone, and a button will let you add the app to Passbook. After that, you’ll see a new free app every day, and can download them by following a link to the App Store. Huzzah!
