Best Free iPhone Apps

What better way to combat hump day than with a brand new selection of paid apps gone free. For a limited time, all nine of the apps below are free to download on the App Store, so act fast and grab them while you can. And if you’re lucky, a few free apps from yesterday’s post might still be free too.

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.
