Best Free iPhone Apps

This is your last roundup of the week covering paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free for a limited time, so you’ve got to make it count. We dug through hundreds of discounted apps on Friday and came up with the eight best ones. You can check out each of them below, and you’ll find another couple freebies left in yesterday’s roundup as well.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any 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 anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.
