We’re kicking off a new week with one of our best roundups of the month so far covering paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. Just remember that each and every one of these sales is only on for a short while, so the prices could jump back up at any point in time.

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.
