We’re now just one week away from Christmas. Have you finished shopping for presents yet? If so, are you trying to save as much money as possible until your next paycheck? Well, we can’t send each and every one of you a blank check, but what we can do is highlight some previously paid apps that are currently on sale for free.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any 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 anyway, you will be charged by Apple.


Normally $0.99.
