Best Free iPhone Apps

You’re undoubtedly busy today celebrating July 4th with copious amounts of beer and grilled meat, but you should take a break by filling your phone with free apps. We’ve rounded up the eight best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free on Independence Day, and you’ll find them all listed out below.

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 developers. There is no way to tell how long these apps will remain free. The 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. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.
