Best Free iPhone Apps

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, we may receive an affiliate commission. Learn more.

It’s Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions and we have a list of paid apps that have gone free on the App Store for your perusal. None of these facts are related to one another, but if you’re having trouble staying focused at work today, why not download a bunch of new apps to distract yourself?

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.
