After a brief hiatus, our daily series on paid iPhone and iPad apps that go on sale for free is back in full swing. Yesterday’s roundup was a solid one and you should definitely check it out if you missed it. We’ve got six fresh apps for you to try on Thursday though, and you’ll find them all below in this 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.

Chronicle – Bill Manager
The easiest, fastest bill manager in the App Store. A universal app for iPhone & iPad, with multitasking on iPad. iCloud sync works across all iOS devices plus Mac with the available Mac version.
If you pay bills, you need Chronicle.
Here’s why: A single late payment can cost you $30 or more and cause your credit score to plummet by up to 100 points.
Chronicle reminds you to pay your bills, so you can just enter them, and forget about them.
Plus, Chronicle syncs with the available Mac version via iCloud, so you can view and pay your bills everywhere.
In addition to reminding you to pay your bills, Chronicle keeps track of all your payment history, including confirmation numbers, so you always have proof of payments.
New to Chronicle is the Pro version. Available as an in-app purchase, Chronicle Pro gives you access to all new features of Chronicle as they are updated.
Currently available features in Chronicle Pro:
Forecast View: See the future—see what will be due every month for a year in advance.
Amount to Save: Stop bills from sneaking up on you. Many bills don’t repeat every month: for these bills, Chronicle will calculate how much you need to set aside each month so that you have enough to pay it when it comes due. For example, you may have an auto insurance bill of $500 that is due every 6 months. Chronicle will calculate that you need to set aside $83.33 each month in order to have enough to pay the bill each time it is due.
Intelligent Estimated Amount Due: Helps you know how much will be due for bills that vary. Using the type of bill, your payment history, and the time of year, Chronicle will intelligently calculate an estimate of how much is due. For example, Chronicle will be able to learn if your electric bills are higher or lower in the winter, and estimate accordingly.
