Apple’s new iPhone XR is set to be released on Friday and there’s no better way to prepare for it than by stocking up on as many neat new apps as you can. We’re doing our part by rounding up all of the best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free today. There are five different apps listed below, and they’re all free downloads — but only for a short time so grab them for free while you can.

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 app 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. Some apps may have additional in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

DataRocket Data Usage Monitor

Normally $0.99.

Never worry about your data limit again.

DataRocket keeps tabs on your cellular data usage. The widget tells you at-a-glance, how close you are to exceeding your cap.

DataRocket notifies you in 10% steps about the remaining high-speed data volume.

The DataRocket widget informs quickly and clearly about data usage in the current billing period.
The dot on the progress bar changes its color from green (= safe), yellow (= attention) to red (= danger!).

The dot provides additional information about the billing period and thus helps you to keep an even better eye on data consumption: If the dot is to the right of the progress bar, your data consumption is safe. However, if the point is to the left of the progress bar, you should reduce your data consumption in order not to be throttled before the end of the billing period or to have to buy expensive additional data.

The DataRocket Wi-Fi widget displays the received and sent data volume. A tap on the “More” button opens the detailed view in which the local and public IP address can be viewed. DataRocket also displays the MAC address and the name of the wireless access point manufacturer.

Aureus Prime

Normally $1.99.

Lights out! Lights out! Can you memorize the board and match elements in the dark?

Memorize the board, match hidden elements, produce gold, upgrade the machine, and fight the ever so quickly increasing pressure. Play online with up to 3 opponents to determine who has the best visual memory or fastest fingers and collect their gold by defeating them!

Take a break from classic matching games and see if you can master this new twist!

In Aureus the player is tasked with operating the elements of an electrically charged gold producing machine. The machine operates in the dark, with all elements hidden from the player. Matching similar elements creates an electrical current which briefly illuminates part of the board, disintegrates the matched elements, and produces gold.

Players must rely on their memory to match hidden elements. Speed is likewise essential to master the Aureus which has a strong tendency to overheat. Skilled players have the option of using gold coins earned over time to upgrade the machine. Upgrades can reduce pressure, slow falling elements, or minimize the impact of failed matches amongst other benefits. Once fully upgraded, Aureus provides its fastest game mode with frantic gameplay.

At a basic level, Aureus can be played as a tile matching game with a twist. At the most complex level, Aureus demands a combination of strategy, dexterity and memory. The most efficient way to play is by making a succession of small matches to regroup similar elements, followed by more complex matches to produce large amounts of gold coins. As the pressure increases, the player must master a balance between speed and memorization to optimize the number of coins and the final score.

Aureus features 3 game modes:
* Endurance: the classic mode, with continuous game play until the machine breaks
* Time Trial: the perfect mode for short sessions, with game play limited to 90 seconds
* Online: a multiplayer mode in which players can challenge up to 3 opponents
