There’s simply no better way to celebrate having arrived at the end of another long week than by digging through one of our popular lists of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free and grabbing a handful of premium apps without paying a dime. We’ve got plenty of great options for you today, and you’ll also find several good freebies in yesterday’s post if you hurry.

DON’T MISS: The 6 most exciting things unveiled at Lenovo’s big event

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.
