Best Free iPhone Apps

If you think high-quality paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free are easy to come by, think again. Hundreds of iOS apps go on sale each day and it takes a whole lot of time to dig through them and come out with the best apps of the bunch each day. But we fight through the pain for you, our readers, because we know how much you love them.

Today’s list includes 10 paid iOS apps on sale for free, and you’ll find another handful that are still free downloads in yesterday’s post as well.

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.
