Thursday is a new day and with it, new paid iPhone and iPad apps have been made available for free for a limited time. Solid paid apps on sale for free have been a bit scarce this week, but things definitely picked up on Thursday and we’ve put together a great list of seven iPhone and iPad apps that are normally worth a combined $56, but you can download each and every one of them for free right now if you hurry.

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 are free at the time this post is published. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.
