You’ve hit the mother lode today, Apple fans, because we’ve got 12 paid iPhone and iPad apps for you to check out that have all been made available for free for a limited time. It’s our biggest list of the week so far, and it’s probably also our best. And if you’re looking for even more freebies, take a look at all the remaining sales in yesterday’s post.

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.


Normally $0.99.
