48 hours from now, you’ll be knee deep in the holiday weekend ahead of Christmas on Monday. That’s nice and all, but for those of us who are working today, it feels more like 48 days. The good news is that in order to keep you distracted on what I imagine is a fairly slow day, we have another collection of free apps for you to download.

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.
