We’ve been on a roll this week and yesterday’s post covering paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for a limited time might have been the best so far… until now. We’ve got nine fresh apps for you today, including some fun games and a few neat utilities as well. There are also still a few remaining sales going in yesterday’s post, so head back to that one if you want even more freebies.

DON’T MISS: The stupidest thing Sprint has done in a long, long 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.
