Wednesday’s post covering paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was a great one, and you’ll still find a bunch of free downloads in there if you go back to it. We’ve got 10 fresh apps on sale for you to check out today though, and you’d better hurry because these are all limited-time sales that could end at any moment.

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.
