While we took a break from telling you about free iPhone apps to cover Microsoft’s big event on Tuesday, we’re back with an impressive new list of eight terrific paid iPhone apps that are completely free to download right now. Normally these apps would cost a total of $34 but you can get them all for nothing if you act fast. Let’s check them out below!

MUST READ: Secret iPhone apps you can only use if you work for Apple

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.

Tales from the Borderlands

Normally $4.99

Tales from the Borderlands is a five part episodic game series from the creators of The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series. Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, this is a story full of Borderlands’ trademark humor, following two adventurers on their quest for greatness.

You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs, their journey will take you on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles you’ll encounter, in this new take on the award-winning universe created by Gearbox Software.

The World Factbook Visual Edition has information on the people, society, government, economy, geography, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues for 267 world entities.

GeekDad.com: “It’s different from other similar apps in that it really helps users visualize the data, and doesn’t just display tables of numbers. It is a wonderful way to learn about the countries of the world in a very visual way. Numbers have a harder time conveying their impact, but the maps, graphs, and colors in this app demonstrate them perfectly.”

The app has browsing, search, graphs, and map sections. In the browse section the user can select countries by tapping maps, or by selecting from a list. The user can also search for countries in the search section. In the graphs section dozens of data comparisons are presented as visual graphs or beautiful colored world maps. The maps sections has a collection of maps.

The app is based on the World Factbook data prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency. This app presents this public domain data in a more visual way that is more convenient to use on an iPad and makes it more accessible to adults and kids by presenting all data as graphs that are unique to this app.

PowerAid is an app that brutally awakes you in case of a power outage. If there is a storm coming, or a big freeze is on it’s way, you really need this app. Even if PowerAid awakes you just once, it will probably be your wisest investment ever.
It’s really simple: Connect your device to a power adapter and start the app. Put the device to sleep. That’s it! If the power goes out, a loud alarm sounds.

PowerAid may also be used as an anti-theft alarm if you are charging your iPhone in public places.

If the power circuit breaker trips or if there is a blackout whilst you are asleep, it can end up costing you thousands. Food worth hundreds in the freezer lost. Heating stops. Your baby or toddlers might freeze. The baby alarm stops working. Your saltwater aquarium gets ruined. Basement sump pump stops. The burglar alarm gets disabled.

This app has a VERY LOUD alarm signal constructed to awake even hearing impaired.
