It’s the night before the night before Christmas, so there’s plenty of stirring in everyone’s houses. But while the rest of your household is going crazy with last-minute preparations, you should sit back, relax, and enjoy this list of 10 paid iPhone and iPad apps that are currently on sale for free.

DON’T MISS: Stacked is a humpbacked iPhone battery case you might actually like

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.

Sidefari is a simple web browser that is designed to act as a companion to Safari.

With multitasking in iOS 9, Sidefari uses the new Safari View Controller to show an extra Safari-based browser on the side of your iPad’s screen. Now you’ll be able to have two websites simultaneously on the same screen enjoying the full benefits of Safari, like content blockers.

But your iPhone won’t be let out of the fun, as the app includes an action extension to open URLs in a modal window of Safari View Controller — all without exiting the current app. All that’s required is for the app to support the action extensions and a URL is being shared.

Sidefari for iPad features:
+ Compatible with iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and iPad Pro
+ Safari View Controller integration; optimized for multitasking
+ Included action extension to open URLs in-app from anywhere (that includes Safari!)
+ History always visible for quick an easy access to a previously-browsed website
+ Option to delete and/or disable history
+ The same modal Safari View Controller experience described below is also available for iPad

Sidefari for iPhone features:
+ Compatible with all iPhones running iOS 9 or greater
+ Modal Safari View Controller browsing from inside other apps
+ Compatible apps include any that share URLs and have access to the iOS extensions screen
+ A reliable, Safari-like experience

How to setup in three easy steps for iPad:
1. Open Safari
2. Swipe from the right edge of the iPad’s screen to bring up the multitasking window and select Sidefari
3. Tap the separator between Safari and Sidefari to stick the second window on screen

How to setup in three easy steps for iPhone:
1. Open Safari
2. Tap the share icon button
3. On the lower row of icons, search for “More” to enable the “Open Modally in Safari” extension

Enjoy!

Clocks

Clocks

Normally $0.99.

One thing’s for sure: we don’t have a lot of time, but we can have fun tracking it with Clocks.
Clocks magically combines time zones, alarms and widgets in a simple and elegant app that you’ll love to use daily. This app is perfect for people who travel or who want to keep in touch with their friends or family abroad.

* We are proud to not use any In-App Purchases or Ads in our app.*

Please enjoy the following wonderful features.

TIME ZONES
Clocks helps you break the barriers of space and time and find chronological information about any city you like. You can search for and organise your favorite cities so that you can easily find the correct local time.

TIME ZONE CONVERTER
The Time Zone Converter provides time zone transformations taking into account daylight saving time (DST), local time zone and accepts present, past or future dates. Just turn it on, select a date and the time in your favorite cities will adapt accordingly. This is the perfect feature to use when handling future dates.

ALARMS
Nobody wants to miss out on important events, but sometimes, it’s hard to find the time in another city. Clocks lets you set alarms for your favorite cities in a simple and intuitive way. Choose from several predefined alert messages, set the local time you want to be notified at and you’re good to go.

WIDGETS / TODAY EXTENSION
Clocks wouldn’t be a modern iPhone app without Widgets. Your favorite cities appear in the Today View with just a swipe down, for quick glancing, Did we mention that they look awesome, too? New: We’ve added two modes of displaying the time in our today extension. Now you can choose from either digital/analog clocks.

DAYTIME / NIGHTIME COLORS
Every pixel is carefully painted to match (as closely as possible) the current time in every city. For night time we used dark colors and for day time, bright ones, which combined, look wonderful on the iPhone display.

ANALOG/DIGITAL VIEW
There’s a mode for everyone. Whether you like numbers or shapes to read the time, you can toggle them with ease.
New: Digital clocks are the default time display for Clocks. To reach the beautiful analog clock faces, just hold your phone in landscape mode.

ACCURACY & RELIABILITY
We wind and set the clocks for you. Clocks is synchronised to magical time servers in the clouds so it always displays the correct time no matter the city, weather or holiday.

THERE’S MORE TO COME
We have a big list of features that we want to implement with your help, like:
– custom alarm labels
– per city settings
And much much more, so stay tuned. You can contribute by giving us feedback on http://clocks.made4phone.com/
