8 paid iPhone apps on sale for free right now

Best Free iPhone Apps

We had a great roundup of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale on Monday, and a few apps we listed there are still free downloads right now. Today is a new day, though, so we of course also have a fresh roundup for you to check out on Tuesday. These are all limited-time sales, of course, and we have no idea when they’ll end. If you see something you might like, grab it quick!

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.
