With the holiday season right around the corner, you’re probably trying your best to save up money to buy gifts for friends and family. Well, we’ve got something that might help: another selection of free apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

DON’T MISS: Forget the iPhone 8, this all-screen iPhone SE is all the smartphone you need

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.
