Best Free iPhone Apps

If you buy through a BGR link, we may earn an affiliate commission, helping support our expert product labs.

We sifted through hundreds of paid iPhone and iOS apps that have gone on sale for free on Tuesday in order to trim the fat and pick out the seven best options out there today. As is always the case, however, these deals are only good for a limited time and they could end at any moment. Be sure to check them out soon — and make sure you scroll all the way to the end because the last app is one you’ll definitely want to try out.

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.
