6 paid iPhone apps you can download for free on April 12th

Best Free iPhone Apps

Whether you’re wasting the day away watching the Masters or hard at work finishing up everything you need to do before the weekend, you could probably use a few free apps. Lucky for you, that’s exactly what we’ve got here, and if you’re even luckier, you might find a few extra freebies still available on yesterday’s post.

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.
