We’ve got one last roundup lined up for Apple fans in search of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free for a limited time. For Friday, we dug through hundreds of discounted apps to pick out the eight best options. They span a bunch of different genres, but they all have one thing in common: They won’t be free for long, so download them while you still can.
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.
