We were so busy on Monday that we didn’t have time to put together our usual post covering the best paid apps of the day that were on sale for free for a limited time. Don’t worry, we won’t make the same mistake twice. Today’s list includes 10 premium iOS apps on sale for free, so grab them now while you 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.

„App of Year“ awarded by Apple!

“Nighty Night!” is the perfect App for a daily go-to-sleep ritual with cute animals, sweet lullaby music and great narration. All around the house the lights go out, and in the barn even the animals are tired. But who puts them to bed? Who turns out the lights in their stalls? That is the task for small children aged 1-4. Watching all the animals go to sleep is a lovely way to set the mood for bedtime.

“You feel as if you are playing inside of a beautifully animated movie.” // USA TODAY / 4 stars out of 4
