The good news: if you’re reading this, you survived 2016 and made it to 2017. The better news: BGR is still your go-to source if you want to find the best paid iPhone and iPad apps each day that go on sale for free. We’ve got nine solid offerings to kick off the new year, and you’ll find them all laid out below.

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Cabber

Normally $0.99.

Hey traveller! Don’t get ripped off by taxi drivers.

It happens. Travellers get ripped off. One of the most common ways of getting ripped off involves taking local taxi. And somehow, no matter how hard we try, we almost always end up paying infinitely higher prices than locals.

Cabber is an app designed to solve this. It’s basically your pocket taxi meter that shows the distance, route and the estimate of how much you should pay the taxi driver in USD as well as the local currency.

The app contains taxi fare information of over 128 tourist-rich countries and 782 major cities of the world.

– Although the app works without any internet connection, please note that there may be an additional data charge depending on the carrier when you use the map feature.
