It’s time to close out the week with one last batch of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. Yesterday’s list included a whopping 15 premium apps that were all made free for a short time, and a number of them are still free downloads today as well. Friday’s list packs 10 new apps though, and you’ll find them all laid out below.

MUST SEE: This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

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.
