10 paid apps on sale for free right now

Best Free iPhone Apps

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, we may receive an affiliate commission. Learn more.

As the year draws to a close, there’s just enough time to squeeze in one last list of the day’s best paid iPhone and iPad apps that are currently on sale for free. Just like 2016, these deals won’t last much longer, so be sure to take advantage while you still can.

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.

Bantay is a time lapse watchdog for home security:
Have a spare iOS device? Use Bantay to watch over your home. Using your device’s cameras, Bantay will monitor changes in images taken over a set time interval pointed to hot spots like your front and back doors. Images with changes can then be saved to your Photo Library. The sensitivity and resolution of image change detection can be calibrated for different situations. Alternatively, images with human faces can be detected using face detection features that come with iOS and saved. A Device Motion option also allows for instant capture of photos with the front camera if the device is moved for additional security.

Remotely access images over wireless:
If wireless is available on all devices and iCloud Photo Library with automatic “Upload to My Photo Stream” is enabled, then images can be monitored remotely and securely with any device logged into your iCloud account. No subscriptions or additional access is required. Please note images cannot be uploaded to iCloud if connected over wireless to a GoPro.

Bantay is also a time lapse camera:
Bantay can be used in time lapse photography with intervals as short as 5 seconds just up to 24 hours. It can intelligently save only images with significant changes, such as a flower blooming or snow falling. Saved images can then be played back and saved to a movie file. Bantay can also connect to and control a GoPro Hero 3/3+ over wireless to take pictures at specified intervals, as well as alternate with cameras on your iOS device. Please note the GoPro Hero 4 is currently not supported.

Bantay as an automatic camera:
Have no one nearby to take a picture of you? Use Bantay with the front camera as your automatic photographer. Group jump shots are simple with Bantay.
