Black Friday week brings some of the best prices of the year, but it also means you’re going to be spending tons of money as you try to get as much holiday shopping done as possible. Maybe we can ease the pain a little with these eight paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free.

DON’T MISS: Amazon’s big Black Friday sale is now live – here’s everything you need to know

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.
