We covered a bunch of great paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free in yesterday’s post and just in case you missed any, more than half of them were still free at the time of this writing. Today we’ve got a fresh new crop for you to check out, and you’ll find 10 solid premium apps that are all free downloads for a limited time.

MUST READ: Have Apple’s rivals finally stopped copying the iPhone?

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.

Add stunning 3D effects to your photos with real-time shadows and reflections. Export your creations as photos or video loops.

By the team that has brought you four separate apps featured by Apple, Matter is the newest addition to the Pixite Creative Suite for mobile photo editing.

Alter the reality of your photos by seamlessly adding unique 3D objects to them. Choose from 4 packs of models ranging from simple geometric shapes to complex, architectural structures. Once you’ve chosen your object, select from a range of visual styles to make it reflective or refractive, opaque or translucent. Output high resolution images and even videos.

Make your edits even more realistic by adding and adjusting the model’s shadow. Fine-tune the shadow’s position, opacity, and strength. Use the built-in masking tools to erase portions of your model or shadow to seamlessly blend it into your photo’s environment.

Use the unique video export feature to create short animated loops of the object spinning, pulsing, and hovering in your photo. Adjust the rotation speed and direction for a different effect every time.

Discover, experiment, and create fantastic edits using the free background images in the “Free for All” photo browser. Free for Alls are community photos that you can freely edit and share. They are contributed by amazing artists that support the mobile photo editing community. If you’re going to share, just tag your edits with the artist’s Instagram username and hashtag.
