Apple Watch in-store try-ons… who cares? Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge releases… whatever. HTC One M9 launch… blah. The real action today is in the App Store, where more than 100 paid iPhone and iPad apps have gone on sale. Of course, you don’t have to dig through them all because we’ve compiled the 9 best paid iOS apps that are currently on sale for free for a limited time.

And today’s list includes what is by far our favorite weather app ever made!

As always, be sure to hurry because these sales could be over at any time. Also, yesterday’s list still has a few free apps, so be sure to check that post out as well.

DON’T MISS: The worst things reviewers are saying about the Apple Watch

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.
