Is there any better way to kick off a late summer weekend than with a collection of free apps for your iPhone or iPad? I didn’t think so. We’ve got 9 fresh, totally free apps for you to download this Friday, including the perfect app to download if you plan on going fishing this weekend. Oh, and if 9 free apps still isn’t enough for you, there are still a few free apps available in Thursday’s post.

MUST SEE: Leaked video shows a real iPhone 7 in action for the first time ever

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.
